I’m a full-time blogger, so of course I love blogging and think it’s an amazing side hustle. Still, I know that blogging isn’t for everyone. So what about people are who are looking for side hustles that aren’t blogging?
Good news – there are tons of legitimate side hustles that aren’t blogging. Keep reading to find out what I believe are some of the best, most lucrative side hustles for people who aren’t interested in starting a blog.
The Best Side Hustles That Aren’t Blogging
If you’re the type of person who’s constantly noticing spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors in everything you read, then working online as a proofreader might be perfect for you.
When I first heard that people were making a full-time income proofreading online, I couldn’t believe it. You mean to say that I could be getting paid to be a member of the grammar police (instead of just doing it for fun?!)
Caitlin Pyle is one of those people. In fact, after getting fired from her job, she was able to completely replace her full-time income and then decided to write the book (or create the course) on how to make a full-time income proofreading online.
Caitlin’s course is called Proofread Anywhere, and it’s helped thousands of people make money online from proofreading.
Of course, Caitlin know’s that proofreading isn’t for everyone which is why she created a free 7-day intro course that goes over the basics of proofreading to help you decide if it’s something you think you’d enjoy.
2. Flea Market Flipping
You’ve probably seen those shows on TV where people buy items for super cheap at flea markets and then flip them for a profit, right? Well, it’s not just people on TV who are doing that – there are thousands of people who make a full-time income flea market flipping.
My friend Melissa and her husband make six figures a year as flea market flippers, and they’ve started Flea Market Flipper University, which teaches you the exact process they use to buy low, sell high on eBay and other platforms.
Flea market flipping would be the perfect side hustle for people who love browsing for treasures at flea markets on the weekends!
Melissa and her husband have been flea market flippers for years and they make six figures doing so, so it’s fair to say they’re expert flea market flippers, and the best people I know of to teach you how to do the same!

4. Virtual Assistant
If you haven’t heard of virtual assisting yet, you will soon – this occupation is growing rapidly!
Virtual assistants work from home providing administrative, clerical and/or technical assistant to clients, although tasks may vary depending on client needs and your skill set.
You may find yourself answering client emails and scheduling flights one day, creating graphics and pinning things on Pinterest the next day, and sending out affiliate information the next.
If you’re interested in learning everything you need to become a virtual assistant, Gina Horkey (a super successful VA) from Horkey Handbook offers an informative course “30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success” that will teach you everything you need to get started.
Another little known field that’s growing in popularity is scoping. Most people haven’t heard of scoping but in a nutshell, scoping is basically editing legal transcripts. The reporter writes, the scopist edits.
If you’re interested in legal proceedings or obsessed with HLN and ID Channel (raises hand) then scoping might be the perfect side hustle for you.
