It has been a very long time since I posted on here. I guess it is due to a number of things. I have a very active 2 year old and a 9 month old just starting to get around. I have been trying to sell my tutorials online on my main website http://melaniebremner.com and now that I have found a good cd manufacturer that is cheap, I have made my digital tutorials into physical products with added software for bonuses.
I realized though, as time goes by and marketing is not my strongest trait, that I like to make money, but would rather just write for it than sell products that I have written.
After much trial and error and many freelance sites, I have finally found the places I like to work and am making a steady income. It is not the exact earnings amount I wish I was making but it promises to increase over the next year or so.
I have created a 5 year goal for where I want to be in regards to earnings and since I do have little ones and can’t work full time, this is how I have set it up.
$250 a month by the end of 2008
$500 a month by the end of 2009
$1000 a month by the end of 2010
$2000 a month by the end of 2011
and finally $3000 a month by end of 2012 when my kids are both going to be going to school at least 1/2 day.
If you are looking for good places you can get writing jobs from, here are a couple places you could check out.
http://odesk.com this one was a good starter for me. You only average about $4 or $5 an hour but it is a good start and you can build up some testimonials for the future. This is good for any country all around the world.
There is a new concept that is an application on facebook. It is called CloudCrowd.
How is works is you write, edit and review links/websites that are non english speaking. You get paid so many cents or dollars for the job. It is relatively easy and quick work which is why the pay is less. But you can make anywhere from $1-$30 a day for only a couple hours work. If you want to sign up go here now CloudCrowd
You can always join forums like WAHM where you can find tons of job opportunities and advice on how to make money from home writing or doing any other number of things from home.
Good luck to you and your endeavors! Just remember, if you believe, you CAN do it!
