1. Blogging - Start your own bad ass blog!

Blogging? really? why the hell put that one on the 7 Great Side Hustles In The UK In 2021 list?

Simply because blogging is my number one favorite side hustle, i make money from it and most of it passively and it can be done from anywhere in the world.

So how do you get started?  

Firstly, you need to create a blog about something you love.

Look at inspirational blogs like Ryrob.com, makingsenseofcents.com, and the delicioslyella.com.

I mean, look at all the successful blogs out there both in the UK and abroad that are raking in the dough every single month passively and on literally auto pilot and you can do the same.

If you are interested in blogging, sign up for a free course on how to make a blog via Youtube or some other place that provides free courses. Learn how to master the blogging skills.

Then apply what you have learnt to a fancy WordPress blog and start from scratch like we all have to in the beginning unless you want to opt for a more faster approach and buy one.

There are websites out there such as Flippa.com that offer well established blogs but they also sell a bunch of crap blogs so be careful and make sure you do your due dilligence.

Once you are ready to get started, sign up for hosting via Bluehost.com and they will provide you with a years worth of hosting to host your blog online, and throw in a domain name.

Make sure you pick the correct name for your blog as you can’t change it once it’s purchased unless you buy another domain name and point it at the WordPress software.

How do you make money from a blog?

There are a number of ways you can make money from a blog but most bloggers tend to give up after about 6 months due to thinking they were owed money or they done enough work.


You can earn money from a blog with so many ways but the number one way of making money is through display advertsing through companies like Google Adsense, Media.net, Adthrive, Ezoic or MediaVine.

But let’s not jump the gun just yet as you are a long way off from that point just yet. Let’s try water first guys before we can do the butterfly and backstroke right?

What are the top 5 niches for blogs in 2021?

  • Crypto
  • Cooking
  • Finance
  • Lifestyle
  • Health
So it’s definitely possible to set up an awesome blog from scratch with a great niche or sub niche and build upon that by sharing great ideas and your thoughts with your readers.
The benefits of blogging?
I find writing a blog both therapeutic and helpful with my anxiety and as long as i can help others, i know i am onto a winning blog so i will keep this blog going till i am grey and old.
Plus, the money helps pay the bills so it’s a win-win for me and it can be for you too if you want to create financial freedom and help others who were once in the same position as yourself.
Happy Blogging guys!

2. Earn Free Crypto Coins

Over the last few years since i got involved in crypto big time, not only have i amassed a large quantity of lots of different smaller crypto coins than the main leader Bitcoin but i get some for free.

And yes you can make good money from doing so as i have done and still do and yes you can learn how to gain access to all that information in this post about it all and yes it can be turned into cash.

So if you have been living under a rock for the last decade, let me enlighten you as what crypto currency is and why is it gaining so much popularity right now in 2021.

Back in 2008, some clever guy called Satoshi Nakamoto created the first blockchain called Bitcoin and since that day thousands of other smaller cryptos called ALT coins have been created to more or less do the same job as Bitcoin.

With the fiat currencies such as the dollar and the pound being so regulated and diving in value and with cryptos shooting up in value massively over the years, it has opened the flood gates to becoming an overnight millionaire or a very broke person.

“If you do invest only put up what you are willing to lose if the shit hits the fan if things don’t pan out for you”

Don’t get me wrong there are scammers out there who create crappy coins that take everyones money but as long as you stick with projects that are popular and have lots of things going for it or has its very own blockchain such as Harmony One, Cardano, Ethereum, and Solana you will be fine.

So how do i go about getting free coins?

If you want to earn some free coins, the most easiest way to get them would be to earn them through STAKING your own coins.

Staking is by far the easiest way to get FREE coins every week put into your account and there are some great proof-of-stake coins out there on the web that has some great ROI.

The top 3 best staking coins in 2021 (based on per centage) on Crypto.com are

  • CRO (Crypto.com coin)
  • SHIB (Shiba Inu)
  • SOL (Solana)
Don’t get me wrong there are lots more others but it would be easier for you to download the Crypto.com app and find out a more in depth feel for things on this subject.

4. Matched Betting

If you need to make some guaranteed income through an easy side hustle using my 7 Great Side Hustles In The UK In 2021 list, then this bad boy is for you guys as it’s helped me in the past.

Have you ever heard of Matched Betting?

It’s simply a way for you to LEGALLY take advantage of the bookmakers free bets and place bets on both to win and lose from two free bets and cream off the top of it.

The best company that has helped me nab a few hundred pounds is a British well known match betting company called Profit Accumulator which provides you with everything.

In video below, you will learn everything about Match Betting so go gran yourself a coffee or fag or both and enjoy the video.

5. Sell Your Skills or Things On Etsy (UK)

I love Etsy and i have made a shit load of money on Etsy (UK) and it’s so easy if you ask me.

Just find something that you are good at or something you can make from your own home and actually sign up for an account on Etsy to sell it to the many people who flock there in their droves.

The best sellers can always be found around special occasions like Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays etc and especially wedding gifts.

Alternatively, you can offer a skill or a service of some sort such as councilling or spiritual guidance that many people need in their lives to help them get by or for healing of some sort.

Etsy is great place to sell things such as creft stuff and stuff you have created yourself such as photo frames and even scrabble letters on tiles are a big hit in 2021.

6. Bug Bounty Hunting - Learn how to hack 4 cash

Every heard of this one guys? neither did i up until a few years ago before i actually looked into it and found that you can make a shit load of money from hacking for bugs (errors) in companies.

At first i thought you could become a millionaire from it like all those college drop outs who done so when they first started doing it but you will soon realise it is a tough old slog and it involves work.

Most of these side hustles are simple as hell and anyone with half a brain could do them but when you want to do something like bug bounty hunting or basically hacking legally it does require you to learn a few skills before you start joining platforms such as BugCrowd, HackerOne, and Intigriti.

If you go onto Youtube and look up my bug bounty channel BUG BOUNTY HUNTER, you will see first hand how i find my bugs and what great tools i use. Plus, i share weekly tips for anyone wanting to give it a go.

Top 5 skills you need to learn how to get started in bug bounty

  • Basic understanding of IT/Computers
  • Learn HTML/Javascript coding
  • Learn Networking (plenty of free courses out there)
  • Learn the OWASP Top 10 hacking methods
  • Master Kali Linux and command line
That’s just for the beginning to get yourself up and running and once you are comfortable to get started, go do some CTF (capture the flag) trials on sites like Hackthebox.com and Pentesterlabs and then come back to me and tell me you are ready to go bug hunting. Perhaps i will join you!
But have fun with it and don’t overdo it like i did at first when i stayed up all hours looking for those elusive bugs.
NOTE: Make sure you master all the above then nail how to write reports ready to submit once you find those elusive bugs.

7. Start Online Business

Want to make some great money by selling your own stuff or creating a brand online that everyone remembers in years to come such as GymShark?

Now thanks to Amazon FBA or just creating your own web store online anyone can start a fresh new business in 2021 and make a killing if it’s the right product aimed at the right audience.

I mean if the likes of Kim Kardashian can sell make up and beauty, surely anyone can right?

So do what i did,  and draw up a business plan

Then, make sure you have the headspace to run a business and make plenty of sacrifices a long the way in order to realise your dreams of turning your idea into reality.

Perhaps then speak with your friends and family to get their advice and support for your business idea and who knows, this may lead to starting something with them?

then go do some research on your idea and make sure it’s the right one you want to run with and something you most definitely believe in (or else you may as well go back to bed with no belief in yourself or your business idea)

Then slowly, start getting to work on creating a brand by creating perhaps

  • flyers
  • posters
  • website
  • business cards
  • letterheads
because a business to me without good marketing is like a car without tyres, how the hell you supposed to get from A to B?
So figure out your marketing strategy and get to work on it and the rest will follow.
Most of my new businesses are solely online so all i have to worry about is getting things done ONLINE and not OFFLINE like most people like yourself want to start it from.
I am not a fan of business overheads and paying out rent weekly for my business so i plan to keep my businesses online so most of my marketing is DISPLAY ADVERTISING by using Google Adwords.
If you plan to do the same as me, come see me and i will make a great website for you and run your marketing campaigns for a low monthly cost.
With the right frame of mind, anything is possible! So good luck! Keep me updated!
NOTE: Don’t forget to seek financial help from local Government grants and loans, it may help you get started quicker.
