Always Hustling

By | Real Life | No Comments

And I’m back! I took an unexpected week off because I decided that I didn’t have to suffer for my art.  And got off my duff and decided to work for a living. I’m not making a lot or anything, but it’s something and that means more to me than I can say.

As for the art, I took a break from the original stuff and did some art for my fanfiction stories that I’m currently writing. I’m also have decided to reboot ‘Dress Them Up‘. I loved that blog, but it got too much of time and I had to put it to aside. Now, I have a new game plan for it and I have a feeling that it’s going to be financial fruitful than my other blogs.  For me, WTFTMI is more of a passion than a money maker, but DTU combines both.

As for the art, I am way behind and a fanfiction art prompt, and I’m going to dive back into making premade book covers. I actually joined a few more facebook groups that will allow me to do some more some promotion on the art front.

So basically, I have been busy, busy, busy.  I tried to do some freelance writing, but honestly, I just find it way too stressful and I’m already stressed. I love blogging, but I love blogging on my own terms. So I’m working on making my blogs more profitable because a sister is broke. You don’t want to see how low my bank account. So I am out hustling basically.

Anyway, I’m off to finish some much-needed work.

Bills, Bills, Bills!

So another Monday has gone, another week that I’m broke. It really sucks, and I have decided to do something about it. I’m not asking for much, just enough money to cover my bills and my living expenses, and as much as I love it Art is not paying the bills. I was thinking of opening a paetron account for my other blogs.

Anyway, my life has been crazy, but I want to do more stuff and for me to do that I have to get a job. However, I have five kids and childcare is not cheap or easy.  So I will be looking at crowdsourcing jobs such as Amazon Mechanical Turk and such things.

Anywhoo, I have decided to branch out in my art niche to include book covers, cd covers, movie covers, and social media headers.  So in the following weeks, I’m going to be working to add these to my portfolio. I’m also going to be doing some research into marketing towards those people in that particular marketing niche.  So I will be doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff.

Also, I’m just really worried about money, because I want to be more independent and it just seems like an uphill battle a lot of the times. And I don’t have a huge following and me just it’s so much work and I know I’m whining, but this my blog so I can whine. But I will do more work to make more money, just sometimes a sister has to whine okay?

It’s just this constant juggling that I have to do is so exhausting.  Anyway, I think I’m done whining, for now, I’m off to do some actual work.
