How to make money: How to make money without the day job.

“Everyday is a bank account, and time is our currency. No one is rich, no one is poor, we’ve got 24 hours each” Christopher Rice

I’m surprisingly coming towards the end of my first ever month of not having a “day job” and I’m not going to lie – it feels strange. I think earning money seems to provide purpose to life as if it justifies the existence of life itself. Too deep for a Tuesday? possibly, The rant of a hungover woman after too much Christmas cheer? most definitely not….ahem. Moving on swiftly then…

Myself and Mr Fire have become obsessed with one particular google search of late – how to make money online. He travels fifty miles a day to his job and back and its quite frankly taking its toll on him. I have a desperate desire to help but I feel almost hypercritical trying to solve a problem for him that I haven’t figured out for myself yet. So I’ve plucked out some of the most intriguing and more plausible results from many a search and I will be trying them out in a new section simply called : Tried and tested.


This section will move about more than me trying to keep warm without putting the heating on. I will cross things off as I test them out and add new things as and when I hear about them.

Its much shorter than I thought it would be. The internet is full of results talking about making money, but they all seem to be the same few things duplicated over and over again.

Got anything to add to the list? Please let me know either by commenting below or dropping me an email –  Would be fab to hear about your experiences with these things too.
