Freelance Writing Income: January 2008

In December of 2007 I was expecting my freelance writing income to be quite low. After all, this is one of the slowest times of the year due to all the holidays. Despite my pessimistic attitude, I totaled more than $6k last month.

At the start of January, I was not sure of what to expect for the upcoming month. While the beginning of the year is usually a good time for me, with the economy in a downturn, I couldn’t help but to think that things would be slow.

So how did I do last month? While I beat my usual goal of $4,500, it was not as good a month as I had hoped for. With that being said, I did hold over a few checks that I received the last few days of the month because I simply did not have time to get to the bank.

Number of Completed Projects: 28
Payment by PayPal: 26
Payment by Check: 1
Payment by Bank Wire: 1
Total Income: $5,254.46

As mentioned above, I was hoping to do a little better than this since it was the first month of the year. After all, it is always nice to get off to a real good start. Of course, breaking $5,200 is not small change for me. It is not the least amount of money that I have made in a single month, but at the same time, it is far from being the most.

Although I am still putting a lot of time into my freelance writing work, I find myself spending three or so hours a day on other projects as well. As of yet, this has not negatively effected my freelance writing income too much. My goal is to hold steady at my current income level, while increasing non-freelance writing income at the same time. In the end, this will help me to diversify while also adding to my total monthly income.

Although we are only a half day into February, things are shaping up nicely for the month. I have gotten off to a good start by gathering a couple new clients at the end of January. My hopes are that this translates into somewhere between $6k and $7k in February.
