I wrote a post, but I seem to have misplaced it.
This week I started seriously hunting down ideas to make money from home. I had no idea there was so much free information available on the Internet. Of course, I can't actually work until I get my paperwork out of the way, but I started to explore options.
Last night I sent a writing sample to an organic food type of company looking to launch a new website. It was my first time applying for a freelance writing job, though I did a short stint as a copy writer the year before I married the Genius Husband. I did not think my first ever application would even be noticed.
I got a response, a positive response. They liked my writing and wanted to know how much I charge. I'm so excited, and depressed all at once. Excited because it seems as though I may be able to pull this off, writing for money I mean, and depressed because I can't technically do it yet. I'm hoping I can talk them into paying me in food, lots of high end organic food products, on a regular basis, until I'm allowed to work. I could pay the grocery bill that way at least.
