Making an online income from home is not very difficult in this computer age. If you are committed to writing and are interested to share your knowledge with others on a regular basis, you can earn online income from home. All that you need is a computer with internet connection. Added to that, learning the various tips on writing online, will be helpful. Then earning from home is not that difficult.
Even if you don't have a computer at home, you can make use of the cybercafe located near your house. In addition, you need to have a website or at least a blog of your own and get Google adsense account approved.
If you already have a blog (you can get a free blog here - blogger.com) with some articles on it you can apply for the adsense account. If you're approved you can easily be on your way from making money from home.
Interested in writing a kindle book? You can sell your knowledge as a kindle book. Check out these books -
If you can't write the books, but have some writing skill, and looking forward to earn using your skill, I recommend these sites where you can join for free.
Redgage - Here, not only for your articles, even for the photos and other activities you can get paid.
Even without having a blog you can sign up here and start writing. But until you get a adsense account you won't be earning. The more articles (here articles are called hubs in the first site) the more money you will be making. So start writing today itself and then slowly apply for an adsense account.
