So I’ve been working on my articles and blogs lately. I’ve been applying for more jobs on Elance.com and Guru.com and I’ve contacted clients that I’ve had in the past to see if they need any work done. Slowly, the amount of work I’m doing is increasing. I kind of like the slow increase – I’ve been able to ease my way in to the full-time writing schedule a little better. I love the work I’ve been doing so far and the new clients I’ve worked with have been great.
I submitted an article to a client today that is a trial run for a larger project. I am really hoping I get the job for more articles as it would be my first major project since coming back to freelance writing. I really enjoyed this trial article and I feel I would do a great job with the rest of them. So wish me luck!
And I found out today that an organization is going to help me out by paying for my monthly memberships to Elance and Guru for three months. This would really help me out and get me started on the right foot, saving me a total of $105 over these three months. I have a meeting with someone tomorrow at 3pm on August 21st to finalize this and get the written permission, so all I need to do is turn in my receipts to get the money back. This is going to be awesome!
Oh, and one more thing – I will have a link in a few days once the campaign has been approved, but I am starting one on Kickstarter to help fund a memoir I am writing about the 10 years it took me to get through my Bachelor’s degree because of my Bipolar Disorder. I am hoping to raise the $3k it will take me to self-publish the book in print and online along with some promotional things that the publishing house I’ve chosen can help me with.
I guess there was two more things because I have another thing to tell you! I am redesigning my website and will have a link for you in my next post!
Something I’m Proud Of: Working as hard as I can
Three Things I’m Grateful For:
- My clients
- The people helping me with the memberships
- Getting my Bachelor’s degree in a few months
