$30 A Day: Update 2

.
Compared to March, this month has been somewhat slow and uneventful. I’ve made $121.41 so far. My average has gone up a bit from $7.89 a day to $8.09 a day.

Tasks continue to be very dry on the ground with the second gig. Proofreading work has dried up a bit too. Of recent, it’s felt like it’s taken me longer to hit $10 there. I’ve had a few times when I’ve hit more than $10 in a day, but generally, the pace of workflow has felt slower. There’s also me still not syncing up my day with when the site’s busier, but that’s not that different from all the other times when I don’t!

It’s Easter weekend, so I expected things would be quieter. However, I managed to reach $10 yesterday (Saturday) and also the day before. I’m over halfway to reaching another $10. I’ll see if I can do that by the time I hit the sack tonight or by the end of Sunday morning. Ideally, I’d like to go into the rest of Sunday knowing there’s roughly $30 on its way to me soon. (Update: done!)

.
The rest of the month, I’ll be trying to get my ass up earlier so I can catch more work. I’m such a night owl. (cooo, cooo. flutter, flutter.)

Online Earnings: September 2016

.
September was a bittersweet month. It was my highest-earning month, but a personally challenging one.

Anyway, onto the earnings. I made $641.80! That’s the most I’ve made in a month this year – in fact, it’s been about five years since I have.

A sizable amount of that is due to a meaty slot win. I’m not usually lucky with slots, but I won £250 from a £10 or £20 deposit (can’t remember which).

I don’t recommend slots. I also don’t recommend it as an intended way to earn money online, especially if you feel you have an addictive personality. I say this from personal experience. However, I’m grateful for the win. / I don’t go into a month thinking about playing slots as a way of earning online. Proofreading is mainly my thing. But when I do win, I do tend to include it in my total earnings.

The rest of my earnings came from proofreading – roughly $250 – the most I’ve made in a month this year. I plan on making more this month. *beast mode* *cute beast though*

Aaaand that’s me for September. 🙂

October

I plan to hit the ground running this month. I need to. Proofreading-wise, there’s about $38 on its way from work I’ve done over the past couple days. I’m using the site as we speak and plan to make $20 by the end of the day; I’m about a quarter of the way there.

I need to wake up earlier (which means hitting the sack earlier. I’m a night owl), so I can start and reach my target earlier. I think more work comes in in the mornings (my time. GMT.)

I also have two other things I want to take a look at, one of them being testing, which I used to do a bit of between February and July.

.
This month is about time management, organisation and focus in order to make the most I can. Basically, making the most of each day, putting in the work early (and early in the month), so that I’m in flow in a week or two. I want to be in beast mode early on rather than piling on the pressure mid-month.

.
In the midst all that, I also need to take care of myself so I’m in the position to work at the level I plan to, so eating well, taking breaks, taking naps, and getting an adequate amount of sleep.

I can do it. (a voice says)

.
Here’s to an abundant October for us all. 🙂

Proofreading: $20-a-day Aim (Update)

.
So, my idea a couple of weeks ago was to see if I could make $20 a day on the proofreading site I use.

I did OK the first couple of days, but lost the focus/enthusiasm to make that amount per day. However, I’ve been able to manage $10 days easily. I wouldn’t have been able to do that had I not aimed to make $20 a day, so that’s cool.

I now know I can go at a steady but leisurely pace and make $10 a day ($10 days are now the norm for me); but if I want to push myself, I can make $20 or close to it.
.

Since 7th September when I posted about my idea, I’ve made just under $140. I also have about $37 due to me and I’m working my way towards another $10. I’m set to make more this month from the site than I’ve made in any month this year.

What this experiment has taught me:

– what I can achieve if I focus (and it doesn’t have to be a huge amount of focus, but being consistent helps)

– that it all adds up, the effort put in each day, no matter how small per day.

– that I like receiving money. I like the current flow of money I’m manifesting. I like what I’ve made and I like what’s coming to me.
.

I look forward to making more money between now and the end of the month.

I’m not used to talking about money in this way; I’m aware I’m talking about it in a different way in this post, almost like I’m reclaiming some of my power. I wasn’t aware of where I was with that until I wrote this post.
.

Anyway, have a cool weekend, all. 🙂

Proofreading: I Want to Make $50 a Week. (Update – Week 3: I Did It!!!)

.
I did it! I reached my target! Squee!

This is my third attempt at my $50-a-week target. First week, I made $33.00. Second week, I came so close to making it, but ended up with $41.22.

But this week, mama was a beast! Mama was a rottweiler! Target reached with a couple days to spare. 🙂

Again, as mentioned in a previous post or two, I think it helps that I’m a night owl, because that’s when I find a lot of the work comes through on the site I’ve been working on.

.
I’d like to keep making this amount a week, and more if I can. 

I’ve never had the site open all day. I might do that one of these days, out of curiosity, to see what’s possible.

I’d also like to explore other ways I can make money with what I already know, with a language that’s like second nature to me. I feel it might be an easier way for me to earn.

I’m looking to make $50-$100 a day online. Eventually.

Baby steps. Baby steps. 

I ain’t playing this year, though (or rather, I’m playing, but seriously). I have debts to let go of, bills to pay and much twirling to do.
