Here’s what’s worth it and what’s not
Finally, we come to my all-time favorite side hustle – blogging and content creation. I started my blog between layoffs in 2017 as a creative outlet. I used it to document the scrambles on the other side I was doing at the time and to track our journey to debt repayment and ultimately financial freedom.
This blog went on to become a two-time award-winning blog on hustle, money, and career for neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ people. It’s been featured in The New York Times, TIME, MSN, CNBC, Business Insider, and more, and helps thousands of people get started and build side hustle every month – starting with my free side hustle quiz .
I made $60,000 from my blog last year on top of my full time job. This is also what introduced me to several other remote hustles that I still use today to earn an income. Some of them are freelance writing, course creation, coaching, etc.
The blog itself is also not a source of income. He makes money in a variety of ways, including revenue from ads displayed on the blog, affiliate marketing, products I sell through the blog store, social media, and brand partnerships.
Starting and building this blog has given me a whole new set of skills and perspectives on how I work. So much so that I quit my day job last month to run my blog full time while playing with some of my favorite creative pursuits at the same time.
It literally changed my whole life, and I wouldn’t want it to be any other way.
