Hello BHWers So to start off, some backstory. I live in Sweden as a freelancer. For those of you not living here probably don't know the harsh financial climate some of us have. I personally make about 400USD per month, which barely covers my bills. However the alternative is 0 in income as I don't qualify for wellfare. As you probably understand, saving up a hundred or two for a sideproject is almost impossible as I already work an average of 15 hours as a freelancer but due to competition and then the taxes associated I don't make much. Nor are there any jobs available in my area (And no affordable living near me that I can move to. After all, we have a shortage of both jobs and housing here in Sweden. Now, I have a small project idea for my company that would expand it enough to make me about 1000 USD after six months. Problem is, I need about 300-500 USD to get started. Obviously I am not here asking you for this money. The idea is surrounded starting a blog, once it's up I can quickly make a living on it as I have contacts in media here in Sweden where I can freely market it. And I also have a contact network to garner advertisers. Rather, I am wondering what your ideas are on how to make some extra money. I sold of my valuables to pay my bills a long time ago so that's not an option and with my workload I cannot really pick up a secondary job as a freelancer. I did considering crowdfunding but there doesn't seem a crowdfunding site where my idea would apply. On top that I'd rather be anonymous for the first three months of my project and crowdfunding sites don't allow this, nor do I think I could make the money needed. After all the second phase of the idea is secret while the first phase is starting a full blog with investment involved and I highly doubt going on indiegogo saying "Plox fund my blog" would work. Sorry for this post, really. I know it comes of as really pathetic but I am in a hard spot right now and could use any advice you may have. So please do spare me the nasty remarks. Now to go hide under a rock for writing this post in the first place.
