When I started my blog back in December 2013, I had no idea people actually made money by blogging, let alone enough money to live on very comfortably, like Michelle from Making Sense of Cents.ย I didn’t set any blogging goals at all when I made my 2014 goals.ย I didn’t consider how often I’d post, increasing my readership or stats and I didn’t even know what SEO or Alexa rank was.

Now that I’ve gotten going with my blog and I’ve been at this for a little while now,ย I’ve learned a few things like what SEO and Alexa rank are, but I still have a long way to go. I’ve plenty of things left to learn about blogging, but I’ve also started to explore more about making money online as a side hustle, especially by doing some staff and freelance writing.

Over the last week, I had a (so far) one time work offer from a well-knownย blogger and as soon as I’d said yes to this great opportunity, BAM! anotherย offer rolled right in from another established blogger to be a permanent staff writer. Now that things are happening on the freelance front, they seem to moving quickly, which I’m grateful for and very excited about! I can’t wait to learn more about the world of the online side hustlin’ and I hope to continue to grow my online presence and, of course, my online income.

What does this mean for my blog and readers? Nothing except that my postings will be a little less frequent now that I’ve taken on some additional writing opportunities. I’m scaling back my postings here to a M,W,F schedule, but I’ll still be available by email or Twitter any day of the week. I’m not going anywhere, after all, this blog is a great portfolio of my writing and may continue to help me secure online jobs,ย {see my Hire Me page if you are looking to hire! :)} plus it is a great accountability tool for me to continue on my journey to becoming debt and clutter free!

Have you made any money online? How are you hustlin’?
