If you read my income reports, you can see that most (actually, all (but stay tuned for March’s income report!)) of my income comes from freelancing. This blog is fairly new (I started it at the end of September 2014) and is by no means paying any of my bills. I do hope to one day earn a good income from it, but I know that day is not now.
In addition to this blog, I bought another domain (!!) and have a few others that I want to buy, too. Blogging so far has been a lot of fun and I like that I am completely my own boss. I can write what I want to write when I want to write it. Don’t get me wrong, I also love freelancing, but with freelancing I do have a boss (my client), I have deadlines to meet and I don’t always get to pick my topic.
I plan on doing both for a while, but wanted to weigh in on the pros and cons of freelance writing versus blogging. Both can be full-time or part-time jobs, but you can’t do both full-time at the same time (at least, I can’t…). I think you get to a point where you have to choose if blogging is better for you or if freelancing is the way to go. I really do enjoy both, but lately finding the time to devote to both has been difficult (hence the lack of posts on the blog).
