Weekly Newsletter for Freelancers

Do you know how to make time to grow a successful blog when you have a full-time job?

Critical information is provided in the article by Michelle Schroeder-Gardner featured in the Problogger blog.

There are people who love blogging. But, right now they can’t leave their full time job to shift in freelance blogging. There may be several reasons for not leaving their current job.

As you know, a blog will take some time to be established. At the beginning, earnings from your blog will be low. It will not be a wise decision to leave your main job because of your low earnings from your blog. During this establishment time the earnings from your full-time job will pay your bills.

But, if you really love blogging and freelancing, you can make time from your current job to work on the job that you are passionate about. Michelle tells her secrets about how she now makes around $100,000 per month from a blog which she established while working full time.

From Michelle's article, you’ll get the ideas on how to make time from your full-time job. Here is the article. Making time from lunch hour is brilliant!

Motivate Yourself!
“Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.” — Maya Angelou

Productivity Tip Of The Week

Did you check the best portfolio sites for 2017?
Whatever is the area of your freelancing, you must have a portfolio site of your own. I have shared articles earlier about how to create an engaging portfolio. The design or the appearance of your portfolio site is very important in this regard.

The design of your portfolio site creates a sense of your creative ability amongst potential clients.

I’ve found an article on Web Designer Depot on the best new portfolio sites for 2017. If you haven’t created your portfolio site yet, you should consider the designs shared in this article. And if you already have your portfolio site, consider incorporating the ideas from these designs.

The new look of your site will help you increase the marketing of your freelancing work. Here is the article I’m talking about. The Future Forward is quite impressive! So, what have you selected?

Work-Life Balance Tip Of The Week

Do you know the importance of sleeping well for the freelancers?
Freelancers, especially the young freelancers, often make a mess with their sleeping schedules. This happens when there is an extreme pressure to meet clients' deadlines. During this time they forget about their health. What many freelancers don't realize is that this hazard to their health will take time to recover.

Some freelancers overworking on a project might plan that having a long sleep after the project is completed will allow them to recover quickly. But, often this does not work.

Good health depends on good sleep management. I’ve searched for this topic and found an article on the importance of sleeping. This article is written in a different style. Here it is.

Financial Tip Of The Week

Looking for a part-time job beside your freelancing? Here is the list of easiest part-time jobs.
Part-time jobs are popular amongst students. But, if you have time after your main business (i.e. Part-time freelancing, after college, or even after your full time job) you also can use a part-time job to boost your income.

There are numerous part-time jobs. Many companies outsource their daily tasks to reduce costs and you can use this to your advantage. Again, some companies allow you to work from home for them on a flexible time schedule. So, you can often do this work after your 9-5 office hour day job.

Other companies outsource people on a commission basis. If you can make sales, you’ll get a specific commission on each sale. An apartment broker is an example of this type of job.

There are many others. The work conditions depend on the nature of the companies outsourcing their tasks. I’ve found an excellent article on various types of part-time jobs and how to get them. The article is written by Alison Doyle and appears in The Balance blog. You can read the article from here.

I think that the part time job No. 12 that Alison mentions is the best.
