There are many sites, like FindNerd, that you can use to find writing gigs. Projects are posted with price and details. You will then bid on the job. If you are hired, you will do the project and many platforms let them rate you. Those rating, especially in the beginning, are important. When people are hiring for projects they will check your reviews. The better your reviews are, the more you can ask for. This is a great way to start earning money quickly.
Blogging, on the other hand, is different. You will have to produce tons of awesome content to gain followers. You will not make money until you have an audience. This will take much longer, but can have a huge payout.
This is a fun job because you aren’t limited to writing content. There are many types of jobs. VAss are similar to administrative assistants. You may do research for a business, maintain a budget, purchase inventory, manage staff schedules, manage emails and phone calls, and handle social media for the business page. Virtual assistants will probably be a full time job, there will be some part time jobs too. You will still be able to work from home or on vacation.

You know what a house flipper is. A domain flipper has the same principals. Buy a domain that is cheap. Create great content so that it creates value and sell it. Another way is to buy expired domains. These domains may already have good content, but the people just decided to stop and move on to something else. These are sometimes the easiest to resell.
If you want to jump into the ecommerce world, this is the easiest way. With dropshipping, you have a store with no inventory on hand. When someone purchases from you, your manufacturer will send it to your customer (as if they were you). This is a low risk business because you don't have to pay for inventory until a customer purchases it from you.
Whether you are interested in working full time or part time, working online is the way to go. You won't have to worry about commuting or missing a child’s game. You can choose your own hours and your own projects. Some of these will take longer to make a good living, but can earn a ton of money without having a boss.
