So I'm approaching my first month-a-versary as a Freelance Writer! So far I have written 14 online articles and 7 ghost written articles. Not bad for a month. I have made a total of $22.62. Now this amount might seem really insignificant, but it feels like I've earned a million bucks! This is the first time in my 37 years of living that I am doing something that I really enjoy. I have been working non-stop for all of my adult life, but I have always done what I needed to do, but this is different. This is something I want to do, something that brings me pleasure. I'm happy!
So now it's time that I set some goals for myself. I'm going to start off with weekly goals. I want to write more blogs (so far I have mostly been posting my Daily Motivators). I want this blog to chronicle my highs and lows, what I am learning, and my growth. Maybe someday this blog will inspire someone else, the way that The Self-employed Writer inspired me. I guess it's like "Paying it Forward."
I also need to learn more about key words and SEO so that I can drive more traffic to my on-line content. I'm trying hard not to get ahead of myself here. The possibilities are endless, but I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. There are so many people who are living their lives on their own terms. They are punching their own clocks, being their own boss, and making a living. I want to be one of those people too...there is enough for everyone!
My ultimate goal is to create the life that I want to live. Not just any life, but the best life. I'm on my way!
