You remember last month’s carnival of financial goals? Well, it wasn’t a one-time deal. Here’s more info on the carnival and here’s where to submit an article. But hurry, because the deadline is on the 2nd.
My big financial goal for 2008 is to start earning $2000 a month after taxes by the end of April.
I’m planning to earn the money many ways, including through this blog. With my new BlogHer contract and ads from a few other sources, I earned over $125 in December. My goal for January? Double it!
How do I plan to do this? Awesome writing, mostly. And being open to cultivating advertising contracts.
I don’t intend to sacrifice content or aesthetics (at least, as far as my aesthetic eye will take me…it’s much better with fabric than blogs). This blog is mostly a place where I learn about personal finance and share that with others. I didn’t get started to make money. But as a PF blogger in debt, I think it’d be irresponsible of me not to make some money off it. We’re all about developing multiple income streams.
Other ways I’ll be increasing my earning power include: new library job starts this Thursday; planning to spend more energy hunting for freelance work (project I was working on in Dec is coming to a close); building a personal website as a writer/editor (no, you can’t see it); working at UserTesting.
What are your goals this year? What about this month?
