2019 didn’t exactly start with a bang for me. I went into the year sick and couldn’t seem to gain any momentum anywhere. That being said, January was still a really good month for SmutGeek.
This was a pretty big month for me in that I published my Nerdy, Dirty, and Curvy erotic short story collection. Unfortunately, being sick, I didn’t do much marketing for it so this number probably could have been better if I’d had any planning or energy.
Freelance Writing: $50
I am beginning to dip my toe into freelance writing in the sex blogging field. January was the first month I was paid for my work, which is very exciting. I’m hoping to do more of this in the months ahead.
I am not sure what all my expenses are yet, I’ll have a better idea later in February. Mostly its a minor PayPal fee from my Freelance writing.
You will notice that my DepositPhotos fee is no longer here. I decided to cut that service for now as I wasn’t using the images as fast as I was accumulating and paying for them. In the future I might get the service again as their pictures were very good.
January in Review
Good things about January – I’m now offering freelance article writing services in the smut field! I was also approached about some beta reading and editing so I will see where that goes as well.
Not so good things in January – being sick. I really need to get some blog posts back logged so that I don’t feel completely overwhelmed to get some blog posts up while I’m feeling like shit. Same for social media…well, Twitter anyways. So automating that and an editorial calendar are on my list for sure.
