Working as a freelancer and making a full-time living from the comfort of your home is a fascinating thought for most people. The number of corporate professionals leaving their jobs for a freelancing career is on the rise and according to recent studies, almost 40% of the American workforce will go freelance by 2020.
There are good reasons for this trend as well. Corporate jobs are becoming increasingly stressful and less rewarding with long working hours and dead social lives.
As I said in previous post, I’ve got lots of news for you.
It has been a little over than 6 months since I started this blog. The motives behind it, as mentioned on my About page, were quite simple.
a – I wanted WritingMyDestiny to be a helping hand for other people like me, who know they have the skills to make a full-time living online but just can’t take the first few steps.
b – I planned to use this blog as the primary lead generation source for my freelance writing business.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve not been able to fulfil the first objective as comprehensively as I would have liked to. And I’ll certainly need to build more focus on this side.
However, the second objective, lead generation through blogging, has surpassed all my expectations.
I never thought having a simple writing blog could be so rewarding.
Did anyone miss me?
I know you must have been been wondering why I haven’t updated the blog for the last few weeks.
Things have been moving at a rapid pace since I’ve taken up blogging and thankfully clients are coming in more frequently now.
I’ve got lots of news to share with you!
From cracking my first long term blogging deal to taking up an off-shore marketing consultancy role, I’ve come to experience the true potential of blogging as a marketing tool.
But more on that later!
June was a pretty good month for WritingMyDesitny in many ways. I posted much more regularly on the blog than any other month and also managed to write more than a dozen guest posts on a number of leading blogs. The traffic numbers were better than any other month since I started blogging and I can see a small community building around this blog.
However, the last couple of weeks made June even more exciting for me, and they are the primary reason for writing this post as well. I’ve said this a number of times that I’m still not earning as much money from this blog as I would like to.
