Aww.. The Sweet Taste of Victory

Or.. Okay, maybe it's just Frosted Cheerios, but at the moment it tastes pretty darn good.

Finally selling your first piece of freelance work feels kinda like that. You know it's not breaking the bank, but tastes pretty good after hard work and very slim rewards from it.

Where did the bowl of Cheerios come into play with all this? Well.. The reason may seem silly, but for the past few weeks I haven't had time to eat breakfast. Partly for the reason that I'm holding my son most of the time, and the other part because if I'm not holding him I'm cleaning, taking care of my daughter or typing. (You'd be suprised at how something so small as being able to type with two hands can make a person willingly pass up breakfast.)

While it was only bought for $24, I was still way-excited about selling my first article since breaking out in the Freelance World online. And it gave me motivation to keep plugging on. :)

I currently am working on trying to get a few more articles written up for the same group, but have no guarantee they will be purchased.

My new favorite job-searching source (who gave me my first sale-lead) posts every morning after searching and picking the cream of the crop so-to-speak. You can find her at this link:

Not only are there excellent job leads, but everyone who posts on this site are full of information for newbie writers such as myself. :)

Aw.. the son calls. Happy Freelancing!

Thank you so much for the plug. I'm always so pleased to hear that someone has gotten hired from one of the leads that I've posted. The good news is that once you have sold your first piece, it will get easier the next time. :) Here's to your continued success!
