So it’s been a while since I’ve posted my freelance income reports. January, to be exact. Since I know you’ve been missing my income reports, I’m going to give you a double dose of what you’ve been missing for the past couple months with income reports from both February AND March. I know – two awesome surprises in one!
For me at Freelance Writer Startup, lots has been happening both online AND offline. Here’s what I’ve been up to for the past couple of months:
I added another continent to my list as I went to Abu Dhabi for my “day job” purposes. Despite spending the first few days jet lag, I really enjoyed it and met a lot of awesome people! Not only that but I got went to the desert where I rode a camel! Talk about memorable moments! By the time my workshop was over I didn’t want to leave, and experienced a bit of post trip blues as I settled back into work. I also flew to Barbados for a weekend for personal reasons, and I did enjoy my time there at least. As a result mainly of the hectic planning for Abu Dhabi, including visa applications, funding, and other concerns, I was a bit stretched in terms of time for the month.
While I was in Abu Dhabi I got an email from a content marketing firm looking for writers! Even though I was trying to juggle with a million different things while away, I did manage to fire off a quick test article for the content marketing company. I was accepted (of course!) and started immediately. As a result of a slightly tough schedule, I haven’t been able to keep up with my blog as much. But rest assured, this WILL change and I’ll get back on my horse in keeping you guys updated.
Also, I decided to cancel my Aweber subscription. Quite simply, it was a product that I am not in a position to fully take advantage of. Despite some of the horror stories I’ve heard from people using other providers, mine has been perfectly fine. In addition, without any sort of product to sell (besides my writing services) there really is no need to use Aweber.
Are you ready for the figures now? Here are my February and March freelance writing income reports:
February Freelance Writing Income Report
Freelance Writing Income – $0
Freelance Writing Expenses – $44:
Freelance Writers Den – $25
Aweber – $19
March Freelance Writing Income Report
Freelance Writing Income –$230
Freelance Writing Expenses:$44

April Forecast – So long, and thanks for the fish
So…I’m totally going to be quitting my job with the content marketing firm for a number of reasons. This isn’t particularly the fault of either myself or the content agency, but I don’t particularly feel that we’re a good fit at this present moment. I know some people may think that it’s crazy to give up a steady paying gig, but when you know that that work doesn’t suit you, then it’s time to give it up. As a result, I’ll probably take a hit over April and May as I search for new clients.
Of course, this does mean that I’m back on the freelance writing market!
