My First Two Weeks of Self-Employment


So it has been nearly two weeks of self-employment and I am loving it! I actually haven’t been able to stay on a real schedule for a variety of self-imposed reasons, but I am keeping up with all of my work and am having fun. I will be working out a schedule soon though [...]

Blogging by the Hour


I have recently been hired to network for a group of Australian personal finance blogs. In short, they are paying me in 20 hour increments to do a variety of time-consuming blogging tasks that help build up a blog. Here is what I’ve been hired to do:

Stumbling into Staff Writing


I never planned to become a staff writer. At the time, I had just been blogging for 4 months and was realizing there was money to be made through advertising. I was also throwing myself into the new Yakezie blogging forums like a crack addict – I mean imagine, a whole forum full of [...]

My Big Push Schedule


Let me start off by saying that the schedule I am talking about below is ONLY useful in small increments and WILL LEAD TO BURNOUT if you try to make it into a normal thing. I only got this busy within the last 4-6 weeks and will only push myself this hard until I [...]
