Many people work from home. It is also a dream of millions of others who would like to do so, but don't know how to start. Those who work from home usually work for themselves. In other words, they run their own business.
This may not be for everyone. It means that you and you alone, are responsible for your income. If you don't work, guess what - you don't earn anything. On the other hand, if you find a way to make money by working at home, and you work hard, you will probably a lot more than you did in your old job. It really is up to you.
Getting started is the difficult bit. You need a plan, one that works. You need ideas, ones that are not glorified scams, but good, solid ideas that others are using to successfully work at home. Here are a few ideas that work, ideas that you can use too to work at home.
1. One of the easiest ways to work at home is to sell a service. What are you good at? Can you write well? You could write articles. Millions of webmasters need good articles. The pay isn't high, at least to start with, but you can earn as much as $30 for a 500 word article.

Write an article pre-selling the product. Don't try to hard sell it here. Just write what you think the product is like. Include a few bad points, but not too many.

Article marketing is one of the mainstays of Internet marketing. It is a simple idea that works surprisingly well. It is also a marketing method that practically anyone can do, as it requires no special skill besides writing, which most people can already do.
Articles on the Internet can be of varying length. Around 500 words is probably the most common length, though 400 words is also becoming increasingly common. This length of text is long enough to make a point, but not so long that it becomes boring. It fits in well with the busy lives of those who use the Internet and provides relatively short snippets of information that are long enough to be useful.
There are hundreds of article directories scattered around the Internet. The best known of these for article marketing purposes is EzineArticles . This is a well established directory that draws one of the biggest crowds of people to any directory.
Articles are usually submitted to as many free article directories as possible, and there are many kinds of special software to assist in the respect, such as the free article submitter offered by Brad Callen, which also has a paid for upgrade option:http://articlesubmitter.imwishlist.com/
The idea behind article marketing is simple enough. You write an informative article, in a "how to" style, or a "step-by-step" style, and at the end of the article you are allowed to have a resource box, also known as an author's bio box.
This is a short sentence or two that briefly describes the author and can include a live link to a site where further information can be found. This is the real value of article marketing; it provides a valuable back link to a site owned by the author of the article.
The article can also generate traffic to the website linked to from the resource box. However, this traffic is usually not very large, and it usually peaks after a few weeks or months at best. The article page in the directory can of course rank in Google, Yahoo and Bing in its own right. And because it is part of an authority site, the article directory, it is likely to rank better than it might otherwise.
Back links from the article resource box is not necessarily limited to just that from the article directory. Ezines, or online newsletter, can freely publish the article provided they keep the resource box intact. This gives the ezine or newsletter a fresh source of content, and it provides another valuable back link to the website linked to.
A popular article might get syndicated a hundred times or more over its lifetime, and each time it happens it becomes yet another back link to the promoted site. In this way article marketing is basically two fold: the initial instance is a back link and a source of traffic to the site it points to, and it can be picked up by ezines and newsletters to provide further traffic and more back links.
Article marketing is known for its longevity. One popular article can spread around the Internet and become viral. This is especially so if it is submitted to hundreds of article directories. It can provide an ever-increasing source of back linking for the promoted site as well as traffic that will last for years to come.

Unlike Yahoo Answers, the sites that answer questions and pays those who supply the answers screen their experts a lot more closely. Anyone can supply an answer to any question on Yahoo Answers, but only those approved to do so will find themselves answering questions for pay.
Some of the sites that pay you to answer questions are general and cover most subjects. Some of them are more specific and target a particular niche only. There are a growing number of these kinds of sites and some pay quite well too.
However, it is quite intensive work as you will have to be present at your computer and online waiting in real time for people to pose a question that you are qualified to answer. You may also have to do some initial research to come up with the answer. While you are likely to know most things in your chosen field of expertise, you cannot reasonably be expected to have everything right at your fingertips every time.
One popular question and answer site is Just Answer . They have over 100 categories with experts to answer questions in every one and more. For example, while researching their site they claimed they had 159 experts on hand, ready and waiting for questions to be posed to them. This number will likely vary at different times, but this is an indication of their popularity.
The experts on these sites are often subject to a feedback system. This means that customers rate them according to how well their questions were answered. A feedback rating of 100%, for example, would mean that the expert concerned would have fully satisfied every customer with the answers they provided. In this way customers can choose the expert they feel is most likely to provide the best answer.
To earn money answering questions you will have to undergo an expert screening process. You will be expected to be an expert in your chosen field, and you will be tested on this. You may also be scrutinized by customers as well as by other experts as this is the real test of your skill.
If your knowledge is in a subject that is taught at college or even in school, then you may be interested in Student Questions . This site is geared towards students who need the answers to questions concerning their homework. There are certain ethical questions in this regard, but you will have to answer those for yourself.
If your expertise is in small business, then Small Biz Advice could be ideal for you. This is a site where people pay to receive business advice and answers to their perplexing business questions.
One site that is slightly different from most of the others is ChaCha . They accept questions from people using cell phones. This means that people may ask questions that are area specific, such as, "Where is the nearest gas station?" They would of course have to also provide their geographical location and you would then have to provide them with an accurate answer.

Tips for taking good picture:
Don’t zoom with smartphone: Modern smartphone gives you the opportunity to zoom your photo. But it doesn’t have any physical lens like Camera. It actually crops your image before taking picture and you lose pixels which decreases the quality of the picture. Go close to the object rather than zooming.
Use back camera: Always use back camera of your smartphone as its quality is much better than its front camera.
Take some time: Don’t take picture quickly. Focus the object and make sure everything is in the frame. Take few pictures of same object from different angle and then choose the best picture.
Take advice: Join any photography club and take advice from the experts.
Backgrounds: You always concern about a particular object but it has some backgrounds. This can influence the beauty of the picture. Suppose you have taken a picture of a person and with him you also took a picture of dustbin. Just think how bad will it be? Always create a relation between background and the theme of the image.
Don’t shake: Hold your camera in a correct way and don’t shake.
Take your camera everywhere: Don’t keep your camera at home. Take this where you go. Take picture what you like around and capture every moments. By doing this you will be able to take many pictures and become an expert one day.
