Status Update: February Report

It's been a while since I posted here. February was a rough month for me on a number of personal levels, and this blog sort of fell by the wayside.

On the bright side, I had a very good freelance month in February. I'm still employed full-time, so my freelance earnings are pretty limited so far. But in February, I landed ongoing gigs with two clients, both online content producers. I made $100 last month, and this month I'm pacing to make $400.

It's definitely not enough to live on (not even close), but it's a start. Before last September, I'd never been paid for my writing. I'm still getting my feet wet in this business, but I'm pleased with what I've accomplished so far this year. (And it's very exciting to see my name in print...and on those checks!)

For any freelancers who read this blog---how did you feel the first few times you were paid for your work?
