I hope y’all had a wonderful 4th of July. I have the girls this weekend so we are just going to do a bunch of fun family stuff; reading, cooking, playing, and whatever else we can manage to get into! It has been a long week and I am just ready to do some relaxing!
I have a few good books on my Kindle that I haven’t got a chance to read yet. So, I am going to try and get a couple of books in this weekend as well.
I also want to thank everyone for their thoughtful comments on my post from Monday. I want you to know that all of your encouragement really means a lot to me. Big thank you’s!
Posts I Enjoyed This Week
My favorite post this week came from Paula at Afford Anything. In general, I just love the tone of her writing and message. “I Don’t Want to Be Ordinary.”
- Happy 6 Month Anniversary and the Three Legged Goat @The Frugal Farmer
- How Many of These Money Mistakes Have You Beat? @ Budgets are Sexy
- Spending Time on Side Hustles @ Diversified Finances
- How to Change Your Life By Setting Goals @ Money Saving Mom (This is actually an older post but I have been rereading a lot of Crystal’s post lately and I really enjoy this one.)
- How to Start a Blog @ Modest Money
Online Freelance Jobs
I was pretty disappointed this week with the quality and amount of freelance job postings. I did my best to bring you what I thought seemed the most promising for the week. I also put a star next to the ones I applied to. I always try to apply to the jobs that I think I know enough about to complete quickly and competently. I thought it would be fun to share which ones I applied to and let you know if/when I do get the jobs.

Thanks for letting us know what kind of writing jobs are out there and what they pay. There really seems to be a number of differences between the highs and lows. I hope you’re able to get a few of them and score some bigger prices.

Thank you so much for the compliment!! I’m flattered. Best of luck with your work as a freelance writer. That’s my full-time job, and if your experience is anything like mine, you may discover that blogging leads to plenty of additional (and higher-paying) writing opportunities. So keep on’ blogging! 🙂
Thanks for the comment Paula! I actually got my first freelance client through this blog and to date they have been my highest paying so I definitely see the benefit of blogging! I hope to one day find as much success as you have.

Nice post. I learn something even more challenging on diverse blogs everyday. It is going to consistently be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some using the content on my blog regardless of whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your internet blog.
