It’s Unwise to Only Have One Main Source of Income Online

Proofreading accounts for most of my online income. And I only proofread on the one site. Though I’ve been working there a couple of years, at the back of my mind, I know that if the company I proofread for folds up, or decide they don’t want me on the job anymore for whatever reason, that’s most of my online income gone. Poof.

I don’t want my income to be that dependent. It’s not a baby.

Need to find an additional main egg or two, methinks. Don’t wanna spread myself thin, but two or three main (and fairly reliable/consistent) eggs would be good.

      Hi, Lauren

      Though I published this post on Apr 21st, I actually wrote it on Apr 16th, days before news of the shutdown was announced. I had no idea about it, so I had a bit of a Twilight moment when I heard the news.

      I’m with you. It was a good gig. And flexible.

      I’ve been with them since the early days.

      Sad that they’re shutting down.
