As we’re all aware, I’ve started this blog. Thus far, with the exception of a few headaches, it has been fun, interesting, and healthy. I’m not what you would call a “people person”. I have one very close friend that I share personal information with, but the rest of the world only gets what I want them to get, which isn’t much. It feels good to create something like this. It’s been a while since I’ve tried to create something out of nothing.
Back to the topic. I enjoy writing this blog even though it was created to hopefully make me some cash in the future. And where am I on that currently?
Investment so far – $200
Income received – $0
Another day in the life!
Once I realized that the income stream from the blog was going to be non-existent and then slow going once I did have ads up, I hit the streets! (internet)
I’ve been looking for a full time job for nearly two years. I have a full time job. It’s easy. It pays the bills. It’s third shift which means I have plenty of time to write and do anything else I want to do. It’s just gotten to the point where I want to do something different. And this something has to be better paying than what I have now. It has to be low stress as well. Ain’t nobody got time for work stress.
I check the local newspaper, craigslist, the employment commission website. Not much out there and what is out there looks like it sucks. I’ve been checking websites for freelance writing gigs. Not much there either. I’ve applied for a few things but haven’t heard anything back. I don’t have a portfolio with writing samples other than some fictional short stories.
There is some good news. I shut the door on my small business back in July of 2016. Recovering from something like that isn’t easy when you make $10 an hour. For months, even with my frugal lifestyle, I was still barely scraping by. But now I’m finally starting to (financially) recover and I’ve got some exciting things in the works. Stay tuned!
