Google’s Blogspot and WordPress provide free blogging platform which you can use for creating Blogs. 
For Website, you may visit goDaddy which provides you doamin name +  WebHosting . If you are new to the website design you can use the templates provided by these vendors. 
2) You can create your own Youtube channel and can become a youtube partner and publish your own videos and can make money. 

3) There are huge demand of tutor these day . If you like others learn , you can start e-tuition which can be a good option for you. All you need to have is expertise in your subject / technology and have to devote couple of hours per week (say 3-4 hours). TutorVista, e-tutor, SmartThinking and are some of the sites you can enroll with.
4) Make something creative like handbags, jewellery, Hand loom items and sell it on Etsy, ArtFire or eBay.
5) Start your own Online Store using SquareSpace or Shopify.
They will help you with variety of  professional templates.  
6) Buying and selling domain is the other way making money online with a little investment and time. You can buy domain at registration cost or even cheaper and can sell them at profitable price. eg goDaddy, Flipa etc.
