Hi all and welcome to my journey. In my multi-faceted IM efforts, I've tried many different ways to earn a buck. Almost every endeavor was like nailing Jell-O to a wall. It didn't stick. However, there is one thing that I've done that's been able to produce a solid income stream for me. Writing. Apparently, I suck at everything else. At least as of now. I have, however, earned a decent income with my writing efforts over the past several months. I'm going to try to build on that in 2016 and see if I can double or triple my revenue. I write for a variety of clients as of now. I found most of them on Craigslist. However, I've found some through other sites, like ProBlogger or Indeed. How much do I make with my writing? Well, it varies. For starters, some clients pay by the word, others by the article, and some by the hour. Some pay twice a month, others once a month, others whenever I request payment. Also, some clients have a bottomless pit of articles waiting to be written, so it's really up to me how much I write. The more I write, the more I earn. Between my work ethic and the opportunities I have available to me, I'll take in about $500 per week, excluding weekend work and income from My Most Favorite Client. My Most Favorite Client is a digital marketing company that frequently asks me to write long-form content and pays by the word. Now, you should know that when you see "long-form content" and "pays by the word" in the same sentence, that's enough to make any professional writer dance a jig. I just billed that client for well over $1,000. There are also what I call "Class C Clients." These are people who pop up in my inbox every now and then with something like: "Hey, haven't talked to you in a while. How would you like to write this article for $X?" Then, I write that article for $X. So I'm making money, and I don't plan on stopping here. After all, this is what works for me. As much as I'd like to set up a site that generates some passive income for me while I play Call of Duty: Black Ops III, I realize that just isn't going to happen. I guess I'll have to work for a living. Sigh.
