Sweet success!  I completed a batch of five pregnancy and articles for a client recently, and upon completion I was invited to do another batch, this time of 20 articles.

If I am able to continue with this client, I should be able to add a nice bit to my monthly income while I build up my Elance success!

Unfortunately, the project involves ghostwriting, so my work won’t be visibly attributed to me on the web, but that’s the name of the game.  I have no problem trading anonymity for cash when it comes to small articles and bids.  🙂

Next up, more pregnancy articles as well as some work on fitness and nutrition.  I love the variety of always getting new and varied projects on Elance!

Chipping away at Elance

So apparently, jumping into the freelance biz is not a quick or easy thing.  I’m on my third job and things are going well…let’s just hope the feedback is positive and the other potential clients start feeling generous!

So far it seems ghostwriting articles is the order of the day.  I’m finding it quite enjoyable.

Now, the challenge of building a clientèle and bringing in a bit of cash!  My husband is equally eager for this step…

A blog with a freelance goal!

I recently joined Etsy.com to sell some homemade crafts and re-purposed home decor items, and they send their shop owners weekly tidbits on how to improve sales and boost visibility for your products, etc.

Well, they also have a blog called “Quit Your Day Job” – need I say more? Looking forward to learning lots and lots!
