I consider myself extremely lucky. I have had this blog for over a year and its finally a place that it making money. As you may know, my life has been a little crazy lately. I am still trying to process everything and trying to decide what to do with my life. I was able to secure a job pretty quickly after the lay off, but I later found out that it will be more part time for the time being. This has added much anxiety and uncertainty to my life right now. It has made me think of this blog and where I would like it to go. I am considering more and more that I could make at least a good side career in writing a major reality. I have been taking tips from other successful freelancers, applying to jobs left and right, and trying to build connections where possible. All good stuff, right?
Another consideration I have is where I will work. I am one of these people who can’t be home all day so working directly from home is out. I am thinking about renting some office space nearby for about $100 a month, which is more than I’d like to pay right now but I think its worth it. It would give me the opportunity to go to an office and focus on my stuff. I have even thought about going to Starbucks but I think that would get old. If you have any tips on this subject, please let me know.
I have also been thinking about buying up another website that is being sold. I would like to diversify my income as much as possible as this is the best thing. I have seen other bloggers do this and it seems to work for them. Once again, I would love any pointers from people who have done this before. I really don’t want to create a website from scratch but I think it would be a great advantage to have one where all the major work has been done already.
I am still trying to figure things out. This has been a challenging time for me lately as I work through my own stuff but I am also excited to see where this ends up. I guess we will have to wait and see.
