Hey, it’s a tough economy out there- I know PF bloggers realize this more than most. There aren’t enough jobs for the people who want or deserve them, and many Americans don’t have healthcare because they are either denied or they can’t afford it. Even with all this, I’m someone who chooses to work part-time, and I love it! Here’s why:
1.) It preserves my emotional energy: If you’ve read any of my blogs you can probably tell I’m a high-strung person. (I just care! About things!) My passion hasn’t become a full-time endeavor, and it never will unless I allow myself the time and mental bandwidth to pursue it. I love writing and working on my blog, but it takes a significant portion of my time each day. By working a low-stress, part-time job that isn’t tied to any of my “career objectives” I can save my energy for the things that are most important to me. Continue reading
When I first started my blog I admit that I was setting out to make some money. I had dreams of turning it into a full time job being my own boss. While I technically could’ve made that a reality by continuing on the path I was on, I decided it made better financial sense to get a full time job and keep working as long as possible. If my online income was completely just a side gig, all of that money could be directed towards savings.
One of my other priorities with my blog was to continue to expand my website marketing skills and beef up my resume. That way, even if my blog didn’t produce enough income early on I’d at least be able to leverage it into getting a new job. Things did work out that way, but I never would’ve predicted the extent to which they did.
Showing My Website Marketing Skills
When applying for website marketing jobs, employers always want to see proof that you can deliver results. That can be a little difficult as previous employers may allow their rankings to slip while riding your past efforts. This is where it helps a lot to have your own websites to showcase your marketing skills. Continue reading
As many of you know I’ve been unemployed the whole time I’ve been running this blog. It actually goes all the way back to August. So that’s pretty close to 10 months. Time really does fly when you’re having fun and running this blog has been a lot of fun.
I admit I definitely haven’t been aggressively looking for a job that whole time. In fact when I left my last job I was making more money from my side business than at my job. So I figured I was set and losing my job wasn’t a problem at all.
As luck would have it, shit hit the fan on the following Monday. Basically Google did what they could to keep the small man down. Ok I’m not very small, but my website income was pretty small time. With the click of a mouse, all my best producing websites were penalized.
Fortunately I had some decent money saved up and was still getting income from other traffic sources. That might’ve given me a false sense of security though. I knew that I was fine for a while financially, but the effect on my long term finances didn’t really set in. Continue reading
