Would you like to work from home on a very part-time basis?  Part-time meaning, for just 2 hours a day or less.  If so, there are a few companies that are currently looking for people to complete various online tasks from your smartphone, tablet, or computer for under 8 hours a week!  This opportunity is ideal for those who work full-time, are stay at home moms/dads, students, individuals seeking side income, and others with limited time.

Some of the jobs may get filled up fast, so make sure you apply as soon as you can.

If you are looking for something less traditional, try blogging.  Did you know that you can work on your blog for as little as 5 hours a week?  It is really up to you how much time you invest in your blog but as long as you have consistent content and stick to a schedule, you can set your own hours.  Some bloggers spend more time creating new posts and other content on their blogs, but you don’t have to.  I probably spend about 10-15 hours a week on my blog (when I am caught up)…not including YouTube.
