Freelance Writing Income

The income range of freelance writers spans from less than $100 per month to more than $10,000 per month. As you can imagine, it would be much better if your freelance writing income was at the top of that scale. Luckily, when most people start a freelance writing career they are well aware that there are many potential downfalls that they are going to have to deal with. In other words, nobody thinks that freelance writing is a get rich quick scheme. And if you do, you should definitely reconsider this notion.

To give you an idea of how a freelance writing income can progress, I am going to talk a little bit more about my success over the years. In my first month as a freelance writer I earned less than $100. And although this was nothing to write home about, it was encouraging nonetheless. Even this small amount showed me that there was money to be had if I put my mind to it.

From there, I set one goal and one goal only. For the next 4 to 6 months I wanted to increase my income each month; even if it was only by a few dollars. Luckily, I met this goal with plenty of room to spare. At the end of my fourth month as a freelance writer I tallied my income, and to my surprise, I earned a little more than $2,800. One month later, this increased to more than $3,500. While this may seem like a lot of success early on, there are many freelance writers who have moved up faster and further than me. In fact, I would venture to guess that my income is not even among the highest in the industry. 

At this time, my freelance writing income fluctuates from month to month; as you would expect. The majority of months I finish with somewhere between $6,000 and $8,000 of income. Of course, I have to pay taxes out of this, etc. When I add other money to this, such as income from blogs, you can see why I rave about what the internet has done for me over the past few years.

If you are an aspiring freelance writer, or blogger for that matter, take the time to realize that you are not going to start at the top. By setting goals and working hard to meet them, your freelance writing career will grow month after month until you have reached a comfortable income level.
