Ayo, Lego, that wasn't too horrible. Just delivery, like you said. Gotta really push some of those lines like you're chewing it up to spit it out in disgust, kinda.

Yeah, delivery is the main thing. Also, it reminds me of that certain infamous Hopsin line about college...

There's something there that's worth honing, though.

We do. It's usually just the Manimal, Paipis, and OGHM board, but we do have one.

Way at the bottom Suuper. You can't miss it.

Honestly, it still surprises me when people don't know about the bottom half of the forum.

That's probably where most of my posts are these days. My interest in manga was sorta short lived.

So for one of my goals for 2019, I've decided to look into different ways to make some sort of profit from doing things I love. Obviously I know that you should generally do the things you love simply because you love them, and that you should not focus on the idea of making thousands of dollars from your passions because quite frankly, it's a not simple process and can easily crash and burn in your face. However, after seeing so many different testimonials from people online who went from being broke to rich just by following their dreams over the years (granted, a lot of these are probably fake), I figured I could at least try it out and tackle this idea as a side project while still maintaining my full time job for the time being.

So what exactly do I love the most, you ask? Well...

-Writing
-Playing fighting games
-Anime and Manga

Out of these three passions, I decided that making a profit from writing will be my main focus. To specify though, when I say making a profit from my writing, I don't mean making a profit from writing books as you probably assumed. I mean it in a more niche sense. A freelance writing sort of sense.

I'm going to break into the freelance world. And I'm going to do it by producing copywriting content.

Now I know what you're asking: "Fro, how the hell are you going to become a freelance writer without any relevant experience? Do you even have a portfolio?!"

No I don't. But I do have three other things that'll help: Google, a freelance website called "Upwork" and infinite patience.

Upwork is essentially a free website for freelancers from all walks of life to find work in their particular field. There are of plenty jobs ranging from small, one time short projects, to larger ongoing projects that pay a hefty sum when completed. I've heard good and bad things about Upwork, but one thing is for sure: It's legit, and its possible to make some reasonable profit from it if you're willing to put in the work.

So here's my plan:

I'm going to start out by fishing for some short and easy low paying writing jobs just to build up my portfolio and my experience in general. Once I get some decent testimonials from my clients, I'll start working my way up to the more lucrative paying gigs. While doing this, I'll also be doing extensive research on Copywriting (Which I'm already doing) and whatever other writing niches I may get myself into. That way I can learn as I'm going, and not waste time with doing months of research without putting any of that knowledge into action.

I'm not trying to make millions from doing all this. That would be impossible, especially for a site like Upwork (although I have heard freelancers from Upwork grossing over a 100k. Not sure if that's true or not yet though).
I'm just trying to get my foot into the door. There's going to be frustrations and failures along the way I'm sure. But at least I'm taking a chance with it y'know? And besides, like I said this will be only be a side hustle, so I won't be dedicating my entire life into this freelance thing. I still got my real job to fall back on if things don't necessarily work out.

I've already submitted a proposal to a client who needs someone to write web content for their new leggings company. I'm not really expecting to land the job, but hey if I do, then that'll be a great start for me.

Oh, and here's the link for the site I mentioned if any of you guys are interested. https://www.upwork.com/

Sounds neat. I hadn't heard of it before, but it does sound like a good side hustle if you can manage it. Keep us updated Fro!

I indeed know of Upwork. Guru is a place too, but Fiverr is the one where I got something tangible - See EW for finer details. More than anything it was the satisfaction of drinking a whisky I'd earned by my own writing that really convinced me I can do something in this direction. I can only recommend it.
