Well, here it is. Felicia at No Job for Mom is admitting that she’s working a part-time job. That job is writing articles for Demand Media Studios (again).
My residuals have taken quite a beating and it’s time for me to do something to stem the tide. As I’ve done before, I’m taking my Demand Studios journey real slow. My current goal is to write one article a day Monday – Friday. If I make it through the week unscathed, I’ll slowly increase the article count by a half an article a day. The goal ultimate goal is to reach 4 stress-less articles a day (wish me luck).
I know my propensity to get frustrated with Demand Studios so I figured it’s better to start slow to keep the frustrations to a minimum.
It has been some time since I’ve updated my paltry earnings. Ready? Here they are:
My March residuals seem to be picking up ever so slightly (and I mean slightly). Going forward I intend to diversify my income sources a bit more. I’m considering going after a few magazines and maybe private clients (not so sure about private clients because they can be rather demanding at times).
I also managed to sell a couple of pieces of furniture from my furniture restoration hobby-hope-to-turn-into-a-business venture. Next to transforming a blank piece of paper into an engaging tale, taking an old long-forgotten piece of furniture and giving it a new personality is something I truly enjoy.
I’ve gone back to school to study and become certified in holistic nutrition. Nutrition has long been a passion of mine so I thought it would be nice to have the formal education to back up my never-ending research projects. Eventually, when I grow up, I want to become a holistic nutrition consultant.
On top of the writing, furniture, school and family, the weather is getting warmer (in spite of last night’s snow storm) and it’s soon time to get back to organic gardening and a host of other warm weather projects.
So, there you have it. I haven’t been making much money at all, but I’ve been pretty busy doing things I enjoy. Actually I truly enjoy just about everything except Demand Studios and washing dishes. Oh well, guess we all have to take the bitter along with the sweet.
I’m going to try to update NJFM a bit more frequently than once every other month. I can’t make any promises, but I will surly try.
Hope everyone is well and making more money than I am.
