New part-time job

March 2nd, 2013 at 04:57 pm

It's been over a month since I've blogged on here! Our first 2 months of this year have been good, financially speaking. We've kept to our budget each month and socked away extra money to our mortgage. And two months straight of contributing to our kids' college funds, and 15% to DH's 401k.

The biggest change is that I started doing freelance writing part-time and discovered there is a lot of work out there. I'm not doing anything glamorous, just writing for websites. But I made over $1000 in January and over $600 in February! Of course I have to pay self-employment taxes on those earnings, which are higher than normal...but I'm still thrilled with the extra cash!

    Glad you have found a side gig that works for you!

    Wow, that has to be nice to have some insurance of great side income (and it can lead to time working at HOME, which is so much nicer!)... How did you manage to get started on that, and what kinds of time are you putting into it? Congrats on making it work for you!

    Hi Jerry--I got started on the online writing through mturk.com. I used to do surveys on mturk, and made about $50-$100 a month. I stumbled across a writing test, decided to take it, and am so happy with the work! I work about 10-15 hours a week writing. My Feb income was lower because we were on vacation for a week and I took almost 2 weeks off from writing.
