Proofreading Jobs from Home: 20 Ideas + Income Potential #remotejobs



I have met many writers and published parents who are also passionate about editing and proofreading, so this post is for you! I work primarily on Fiverr, and I have received almost 3,000 positive reviews since I started in 2013. 

Benefits for me include:

* Being able to work from home and homeschool! 

* Being able to pick up and travel with my family and make money while we're away from the house. 

* Not having a boss.

* Not working in a cubicle anymore.

If you want to join Fiverr just to check it out and possibly sign up to do your own proofreading jobs from home, please use my referral code!

Here's what I have come up with so you can also enjoy this kind of lifestyle. The first two services I am not familiar with because I just haven't had the time to dive into them. They are reputable sites that ask for a proofreading test or sample, but I hear competition can be fierce, and I'm not about underbidding my services!

Third Quarter 2021 Income Report (The Published Parent)

My husband and I were a retro
flight attendant and a
pilot for Halloween this year.

The McLoughlin household is holding steady and working from home still! Third quarter ended well at $3,769, which pays for food and braces and clothing and books and all sorts of things for five children, including three teenagers, a 12-year-old, and a 20-year-old! You'll notice blogging income dropped significantly this quarter, which hurts, but I just picked up more proofreading to try to make up for it.

I haven't been able to work as much as I'd like since I began teaching Grammar/Composition and also Modern World History at our homeschool coop, in addition to serving as one of three members on the coop Committee. It was a lot of work this past summer and into the fall, which is showing up in my lack of income. I just need to get lesson planning, get organized, and start submitting more article reprints and work on my book projects.

October 2021 Awesome Income (The Published Parent)



The 
McLoughlin household is holding steady and working from home still! 

I am still blessed to be able to work from home proofreading, blogging, writing articles, and writing books and to be able to do it in my sweatpants or swimsuit, out on the deck or at the dining room table, at my house, or traveling with my kids and husband for his work to places like Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and more.

I like to share my income from home with you to show you that I am a real person with unique challenges and actual successes. No, it is not a full-time income, but I am not aiming for that right now. I am thankful and grateful that my husband has a good job as an engineer, and that my main job is homeschooling. Words are just my part-time job for now. When the kids are grown, I foresee working more hours with my word career and helping to pay for travel and retirement. But that's still a few years away :-)
