Top 5 Recession-Proof Skills That Can Help You Thrive In a Recession

1. Blogging

Blogging is about sharing information that is helpful to others and creating products that are beneficial.

I chose Blogging as my number one recession-proof skill because it is a knowledge-based skill.

No matter what is happening to the economy, the one thing I am sure of is that people will look for information on how to change their lives change their position, or even start a new life altogether.

Information marketing which is basically what blogging is about will always be a recession-proof skill because people seek knowledge when they cannot understand what is happening.

I remember when the COVID-19 hit, while a lot of o people were concerned about their jobs, I had a huge number of people coming to a post I wrote about what to do during a pandemic.

That post alone increased my traffic by more than 50%.

This goes to show that in times of uncertainty, people look for information to know how to position themselves.

So if you know how to blog, you will certainly find that you will be making money during the recession.

While you may want to know if all types of blogging will make money this season, I am here to say no, not all types of Blogs will make money.

Why is this so? because even though people are seeking information, they are not seeking every type of information, they are actually looking for information that is helpful to the situation they are in.

So what types of blogs will make money this season? Here are some
