Blogging is a rewarding hobby. It allows you to put your thoughts and feelings out into the world, slowly but surely generating a representation of your life that you can look back on to chart your progress.
This July, my community Starving Artists launched our first newsletter. Since its inception this January, Starving Artists has quickly grown. In an effort to provide support and resources for artists, creatives and entrepreneurs, we decided a monthly newsletter would be the best way to get information out to our audience quickly and frequently.
For anyone looking to get into freelancing or scale their side business, it can seem quite daunting. As a freelancer, you are in control of the work you do, how you get paid, and how you establish your own brand in the ever-saturating landscape of freelancers and contractors.
So…you’re just starting your blogging journey and things aren’t going exactly how you thought they would. It’s been weeks, months, maybe even a year…and you aren’t as successful as you thought you’d be.

Working as a freelance writer for nearly two years, I can’t say it’s been a smooth ride. I decided to become a full-time freelancer when I closed my handmade jewelry business.
