However, before you can turn your blog into a source of a passive income, you have to put huge amount of effort into it. You cannot build it in just one night. Moreover, it takes a lot of planning and execution of this plans to progress.

3. Digital Products

Creating your digital products like ebooks, printable, planners, etc. and selling them is also a way to earn money online. This may require effort and some of your time. However, it does not require very technical knowledge. You can just put your own planner or anything you use in your blogging into an actual product that can help others. For example, you have a systematic way to create an article or a blog post. Earn money online by creating a template that follows this system of yours. 
Creating an online product is a one time effort. After you have done creating it, just put it online (in your blog) and just wait for someone to need it. You may write a blog post about it so that you can promote it. If people reading your blog saw its worth and usefulness, they will purchase it and it could be a good passive income. 

4. Online Courses

There are so many online courses out there that are actually making money online in a passive manner. They create the course, upload, and earn while doing other things. 
Some online courses are about programming, videography, photography, cryptocurrency, and Blogging. If it so happened that you are not knowledgeable in most of these stuffs, then make a course that you know well. For example, you know about urban gardening, talk about it. Maybe you finished a course in business administration so make a course about a certain topic within that niche. 
Even though there are courses that is the same with the topic you know, you still can make a course about it. Remember that everyone has their own style and knowledge. Who knows, maybe what you know is more vital and practical than others.
