For anybody who didn’t see my announcement at Budgeting in the Fun Stuff, I gave my 2 week’s notice at work today!!! They asked if I’d mind my last day being on Friday and I jumped on it!!!
I AM A FULL TIME BLOGGER AND OFFICIALLY SELF-EMPLOYED AFTER FRIDAY!!! WOOT!!! YAY!!! WHOO-HOO!!!
I took the plunge mainly because I could no longer expand my blogging business while balancing a day job. I may have only been putting in 4 solid of hours of work per day since we’ve been slow, but that is 4 hours plus 1 hour of commuting every week day that I couldn’t spend answering advertisers or writing staff writing posts. I can also get a life again, which is worth something too.
My first step is to finish the next 2 1/2 days at work. I’ve already completed most of the stuff they handed me today and should have everything wrapped up by tomorrow afternoon.
The next step will be to get on a solid blogging schedule starting on Monday since my most recent schedule is not sustainable. I will let you know how I work that out. Right now, I am planning on waking up around 8am, working until 11am, volunteering and grabbing lunch between 11am-1pm, working from 1pm to 5pm, and hanging out with friends or family and check email sporadically in the evening. We’ll see how that actually turns out in the next few weeks.
I am also in the process of figuring out when my insurance ends (end of month) and making sure to get on my husband’s policy by August 1st. Other than that, I will just be blogging and hope to continue bringing in at least $3000 a month. I will keep you all updated on that too. I’ve already brought in $3000 this month, so any extra I make in the next 15 days will help pad my Blogging Income account that I’ll be giving myself paychecks out of. Wish me luck!
WOOT!!! I AM TAKING THE PLUNGE!!!
Now I just can’t screw this up.
