Making money from freelance writing featured image


  1. The piece on underpricing especially resonated with me! I’ve done a lot of work with nonprofit organizations as a graphic designer, and the price piece has always been a struggle for me and I’ve also worked for way lower than minimum wage if you calculate it. So thanks for that—really important reminder!

    1. Hi Lia! Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. I really hope your situation is different now. Sometimes we really need a job, so we convince ourselves it’s better to get something than nothing at all. However, that mentality also leaves the door open for future mistreatment and below average prices for our works. Best of luck to you!

  2. Wow that’s impressive. $1700 a piece! It takes months for new bloggers to earn that much if they depend on organic traffic/affiliate marketing. Unless they got lucky.

    1. Thank you Victor. The $1700 one was actually a very complicated project, and I felt that I even undercharged for that. However, I am happy with what I have right now, and don’t want to take on too much in pursuit of money. However, I am happy to teach my methods, as well as my writing itself for others to earn as much and more.

  3. I love the level of detail in this post and your honesty. Like you, I quickly discovered that I should only take on clients who will pay me for what I’m worth. At first I took on whatever I could because I was desperate for work, and that was fine because I did need samples for my portfolio as well as the experience. I knew that if I worked for that low of pay for a long time, though, it would only lead to burnout and resentment. Plus, those clients never treated me with respect. Now, although I don’t freelance full-time, I’m lucky enough to work with clients who give me work I’m passionate about and pay me fairly!

    1. Hi Kate! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I am glad you stopped working for low pay, and demand what your services are worth. I believe that if we’re putting the time and effort into making our work great, then we deserve to be paid for it also greatly.

  4. This is an exciting and inspiring post!! I am pinning this to save and read again later. I feel I could learn a lot from you 🙂

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting. I am glad you liked the post. My intent is to teach new skills to help others earn more money. 🙂
