How to Make Money while in Maternity Leave

Parenting is the most important and responsible task in the life of every woman. You devote your time and efforts to it. Of course, you always have your hands full with new responsibilities, but then you get used to them, learn how to manage your time effectively and as a result have much free time. You can use it for watching TV, pointless blabbing with friends, reading a book or cooking something special or you can make additional money. I don’t mean a well-paid job, I mean a small activity that can bring additional income.

If you are interested in this, think of your hobbies. What do like to do? If you paint – sell pictures, knit or embroider – sell these articles. Hand-made things are rather popular nowadays. You can also sew clothes for children and adults. These are just the examples of how your hobby can be beneficial.

In case you are not a creative kind of a person think of a ghost writing. Ghostwriters are writers for hire who take money but none of the credit for the work produced. In other words, ghostwriters are people who write instead of other people and are paid for that, but nobody ever will know who the real author is. There are many websites where you can get the order, for example This service is specialized in academic writing but is not restricted to it. There you can get different kinds of orders like essay writing, doing sums, writing a summery or a book review. So, as you see, there’s a job for a specialist of any sphere of knowledge. Besides, there are orders that do not belong to the genre of academic writing – blog posts, magazine articles and so on. You are to choose what is suitable for you.

Ghost writing gives you a number of benefits. First, it a source of additional income. Second, it is a way for you to get rid of your daily routine and monotonous work. In addition, it is a brainstorm; it is a chance to discover your strong and weak points, a chance to find a direction for self-development. It will prevent you from turning into a “traditional mummy” whose interest do not go far from household keeping and childcare.  The process of writing is the process of study; when you get the order, you should read some sources before you start writing. Therefore, it is one more opportunity to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Moreover – ghost writing is practice. Who knows, you may appear to be a perfect talented writer! You can try yourself as a writer, starting from ghost writing and develop to a professional blog owner! Don’t be lazy, get to work now!

    Love this blog! Thanks for the ideas…I had written a book last year and I love writing. I will look into the ghost writing. Hopefully, will make more money than I did on my own. Also, for blogging itself. I did a WordPress site but never did anything with it. I'll give it a try. Thanks so much.
