01/17/2012 – Another Week of Money

Last Updated on by Michael Brockbank

As tonight is the last night to claim my money from Textbroker.com, I have submitted the request.  This week I was only able to squeeze out $248.  I average 2.1 hours per day mostly because last Friday I was busy doing work for other clients.  If I would have put time in, I would have made close to $300 this week.

This week my income consisted mostly of a mix between my regular Direct Order client and the Team Orders I write.  I didn’t get many of the Team Orders complete only because I put my Direct Order clients first above all.  They are the ones who supply the constant workflow, so they need to be kept happy.

Those around me are starting to show interest in how I am making money by writing a few hours per day.  Students, retirees, staff at the school district, and others are interested in writing.  I tell them to visit this website as I am loading it with everything I’ve learned from freelance writing on the Internet.  Although I don’t know it all, I have produced more than 800 articles, blogs, and descriptions.  I think I know what I am talking about.

While I do know a great deal of how to make money as a freelance writer, there is still much I need to learn.  That is part of why I have this journal running.  It is as much for the readers as it is for me to examine notes of past accomplishments and discoveries.

This weekend I think I am going to try writing those articles for Constant Content.  Since they rejected my first two articles because they were too wordy, I haven’t had a chance to try it again.  Apparently, they don’t accept keyword SEO content, which is what I submitted.  I think I am going to try the natural approach and just created an article without worrying about keywords.  I prefer to write that way, anyway.

At any rate, I am pleased with the money I have made this year so far and this last week was making $16.68 per hour.  It’s only a few hours per day, but its $250 I didn’t have before this week.  If I can find a way to stay on task and limit my disruptions, I would make so much more money.  Take today, for example.  I was trucking along getting some good time in when everyone and their dog had an emergency.  Between people needing website upload help to not being able to change their home pages, they exhausted two hours of my day that would have been another $36.  I did get half a tank of gas out of the deal, however.
