If you’re looking for ways to make extra money, are you thinking about starting a side hustle? Or if you already have a side hustle, do you want to make more money from it (and maybe even quit your day job)?
This guide to side hustle blogs will help you find the best blogs and their communities you can join to learn how to make extra money and grow your income alongside other side hustlers.
A side hustle is work you do to make extra money in addition to your primary source of income.
Side hustles have become quite common in recent years, fueled by growing opportunities to make money online and via mobile apps like ride-hailing services. In fact, according to Side Hustle Nation, 45% or roughly 70 million working Americans report having a side hustle.
The good news is that there are hundreds of great side hustle blogs (and personal finance blogs with articles about side hustles) to choose from.
To help you spend less time looking for the best side hustle blogs so you can spend more time making money from your side hustle, we prepared this guide to help you find the best side hustle blogs for your individual needs.
Many of the most popular as well as newer side hustle blogs have a profile page on Wealthtender to help you learn what makes them unique.
Click on a blog preview card below to open its complete profile page on Wealthtender. You’ll find a more detailed description provided by the blog owner, including when the site launched, popular topics they cover, reader reviews, social media accounts and more.

This is a great way to decide if a blog is right for you (and easy to unsubscribe if you feel otherwise). Many side hustle blogs have also established communities of side hustlers on their site or a Facebook group worth considering as well.
We asked owners of several top side hustle blogs to share in their own words the benefits of pursuing a side hustle. Here are a few of our favorites:
“Many people understandably turn to side hustling to make extra money, but that’s just one of several benefits. Side hustles also build skills, expand networks, and can create a sense of personal empowerment that you’re taking proactive steps to improve your financial position.”
– Nick Loper
“Pursuing a side hustle is a great way to build wealth while taking advantage of the security that comes with a full-time job. This increase in income can then be used to pay off debt or investing in your future, providing a path towards financial freedom.”
– Forrest McCall
“Starting a side hustle is about more than adding extra dollars to your bank account each month. It’s about using your free time to build a business you love, that uses your signature strengths, and serves an audience you really want to help. Doesn’t that sound like a better use of your free time than some of the things you currently do with it?”
– Karen Banes
“The most enticing aspect of pursuing a side hustle is you don’t need to be a certain “type” of person in order to be successful. There are so many options out there, and YOU dictate how involved you get in the whole process. Is it a few hours a day? A week? A month? In person, or online? Dealing directly with people … or not so much? These factors set the stage for your side hustle success. And if you want to switch things up a bit, you can pivot in any direction that works for you.”
– Robin Rose
“To be honest, having a side hustle changed my life. Having one has allowed me to save money and pay off debt. Without it, I’d probably still be struggling.”
– Jason Butler
“Side hustles aren’t just about extra income. They’re about survival. It’s tough to save money or pay down debt when you’re living paycheck to paycheck. And if you lose your job? You could lose everything. A side hustle can pay bills and put food on the table until you’re back up on your feet.”
– Amy Beardsley
One factor worth considering when evaluating side hustle blogs is the reputation they’ve established with their readers. Just as sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor help people find the highest rated restaurants and hotels, Wealthtender can help you learn more about side hustle blogs based on feedback from their readers.
We encourage blog owners to invite their readers to leave a review on their Wealthtender profile page. When readers post reviews on Wealthtender, you’ll learn why they’re a fan and what they like most to help you decide if the blog is right for you.
If you don’t see ratings for a blog, remember they may have just recently launched, prefer not to ask readers for reviews, are written for a smaller audience, or only recently joined Wealthtender.
