10 Work at Home Online Communities You Should Check Out

After returning to work full-time only 3 months after my baby girl was born, I decided that I wanted to find a way to work from home so that I could be with her more often. That’s actually how I came across blogging and the reason why I started to blog. But, since it quickly became clear that blogging wasn’t a quick method for making cash from home, I continued my search for work at home opportunities. In the process, I found many resources for work at home moms (or dads, or really anyone who works from home). There are many different communities, forums, blogs, and sites where work at home professionals can find information, tips, and job opportunities. There are also places where you can just network and communicate with others who have a home-based business.

I know that many of you can benefit from such communities, so I’ve compiled a list of 10 Work at Home Online Communities that I think you will find useful in one way or another.

10 Work at Home Online Communities

The Work at Home Woman

The site describes itself as a “website dedicated to helping women and moms fulfill their dreams of working at home and/or becoming self employed, while providing inspiration, motivation and support.”

WAHM.com

Describing itself as an online magazine for work-at-home moms, this site is a “source for work at home jobs, plus support and advice for work at home moms (dads, anyone).” They not only offer home business information, but also provide articles on childcare and parenting.

WAHM 2.0

As part of the Sparkplugging network, this is just one of their many home business sites. While this section concentrates on the work at home mom, it actually offers information relevant to any work at home professional. Through the rest of the network, you can find information for home business experts, starting a home business, and home office productivity.

Working Naked

I’m sure the title is something that catches the attention of many, but this blog says it is “dedicated to helping anyone working from home either part time, full time, or even to occupy time.” They provide productivity tips, reviews of useful products, marketing/PR advice, and how-to videos.

Undress for Success

This site has a lot of information – whether you’re an individual who works from home, a company, or someone doing research on telecommuting. It provides statistics and other data for researchers and companies to see the benefits of telecommuting, as well as information for individuals who wish to find a work from home job.

Work at Home Forum

This forum provides a community for those who work from home to share, learn from each other, and network.

Work-At-Home Success

Leslie Truex aka The Pajama Mama, author of The Work-At-Home Success Bible, designed her site to “provide free information on all aspects of working at home including starting a home business, telecommuting, and avoiding scams.”

Home-based Working Moms

From the site: “HBWM is an advocate for home employment & home business to allow parents to spend more time with their family…provides a variety of opportunities and resources to help moms network, learn and grow in their role as a home-based working mom. The goal…is to help moms create lifestyles that enable them more freedom and flexibility to truly enjoy their family and their life.”

Mom Entrepreneur Support Group

This is an online support group that offers tips, advice and resources for balancing motherhood and running a company.

HireMyMom.com

Their goal is to provide businesses with top talent for temporary and permanent projects while enabling mom professionals to capitalize on the freedom and flexibility to do top-rated work from home.

Like I said, there are many sites out there geared towards those working from home – this is a small list to get you started.
