Do you call what you do freelance writing? Maybe. You take up an order or two in a month or even less sometimes. It doesn’t matter much what you get since you already have an alternative source of ‘reliable’ income and so you have no reason to care too much what happens to your side job.
Did you know that full time freelance writers rake in at least $55,940 annual income? Drooling over that already? It’s understandable.
Such freelance writers make that much because that is their job. To them, freelance writing is not a side hustle. It is a career they have taken seriously. They have invested their time (and sometimes money) in order to realize the proceeds they are enjoying now.
Just so you understand why you should think again before labeling freelance writing as a side job, here are a few reasons why you should start taking it seriously.
