Work At Home Freelance Mothers

Don’t be one of those moms that is trying to do it all and stay sane too. Think about this. There are ways to make money for writing articles other than the writing sites you find online. Many writers refer to these types of sites as content mills. They will take the 10 articles you spent 10 hours on and they will buy them for about 10 bucks. Some sites don’t even give writers a whole dollar an article. I’m not going to mention the names of the sites but I have written for most of them. Then I got sick of making pennies.

How do you do it all and make money too? Isn’t that the question. For stay at home moms who have chosen writing as their income it is. How do you keep the house clean, the children supervised and fed, and make enough money to pay the bills too?

Well, the one thing I know is that it has to be done. If you want to make money doing anything you absolutely have to put the time and effort into it. It takes at least 4 to 6 hours of work being done each day. Most writers can create and submit about 5 articles within that amount of time. If you aren’t producing articles to sell you are not going to have articles to sell. Basically, you can’t wonder why you aren’t making enough money if you aren’t putting articles out there on the market. On the other hand, some writers are putting 10 articles out there each day and still aren’t making enough money. They are making pennies per article because they are selling to sites that pay jack. So, you have to achieve a balance. You have to produce enough content and get paid enough per piece. Don’t skimp on work, but don’t over work yourself for nothing. Don’t sell for pennies, but don’t expect big bucks.

If you are a mom that is serious about making money from your writing then keep reading. Consider options for making money from writing articles that have nothing to do with content sites. Why work and work and work and still not be able to pay that electric bill? Choose to sell your writing elsewhere. Sell you articles at the sites that allow you to set your own price. Before you set your price though, set your priorities straight, and set up a work schedule that will work for you.

When you stop writing for the content mills you are taking that next step up in writing. If you want to set your price at $50.00 per article you can, and you should. However, it’s going to have to be a $50.00 article. It’s not an easy way to make money. Content sites will take anything. When you sell your articles to clients they must be truly good articles. If you can create articles that will bring you $50.00 rather than $1.00 you will have a lot more time to give to your house, and your kids. No more working all day and doing housework in-between articles.

Set your priorities straight. When you are a writer writing comes first but when you are a mom that just can’t happen. Writing is a job that requires thinking and concentration. When a writer is distracted it is hard for them to focus on the task at hand. The writers work suffers from the distraction and therefore income is jeopardized. Trying to work when you have children running around is not easy. The writers online that are making serious money don’t have as many kids as we do. Your kids always must come first. The reason you are writing is to be home with and provide for you children. When you are trying to work and the children are distracting you the work you are producing is not going to be as high of quality as it would be if it had been written while the kids were sleeping.

Set a schedule that will work for you. Work the hours of the day, or even night, that will be the most quiet. Working before the kids wake up in the morning, or after they go to sleep at night, is a great way for stay at home moms to have a quiet office where they can actually be freelance writers. Then, when the kids are running about you can do the house work and spend time with them. If you have the time it takes to produce quality content then your content can and will sell. Stick to your schedule faithfully and your work will be not only getting done, but also of a higher quality.
