As many of you know, I spent most of this week working to get all or part of my account at Squidoo unlocked. I am not going to go into that on Writing Online, but you can read about it more here. During the entire frustrating week, the thing that I had lurking in the back of my mind was how necessary it was to move my income from Squidoo to elsewhere.
Granted, I have always been of the mind that I should diversify my income, but Squidoo was fairly easy to rank and earn from. Now I am going to give Squidoo a hiatus, just maintain my lenses there, and continue to move in the direction of freelance writing and maintaining my own sites.
To start off the new diversification plan, I thought that I would introduce you to a site that I am currently working on. It is nowhere near done, but I am having fun with it. I started it because my daughter is in college studying environmental science. The site is called Environmental Science Jobs, and it is basically an exploration of everything that is available on environmental science education and jobs. This is obviously not a selling site per say, and a new dimension for me. It will be interesting to see how it develops.
Last week, I also found out that I got accepted to write for Demand Studios and Writer Access. I have not even begun to check those sites out to see how they work, so once I do, I will report back to tell you how I am progressing. However, I have been making some good money on CloudCrowd, which is helpful since I moved my gallery and lots of my income streams have been interrupted the last few weeks. I can easily make $100 a day if I sit down and work at it steadily. It is good practice if you are going to do work for other people, because you have to follow the directions for each project.
So onward and upward, as they say, to better and more lucrative things.
