Ya gotta pay the bills though too...in my personal application of Paretto, I flow my stuff every 4th or 5th project as its own deal. Keeps my mind from going numb doing some of the bill paying monotonous stuff, and my personal empire keeps growing (though nothing like Will ). Eventual goal is to divorce myself from the contract stuff...getting closer, still not there. Best of luck to you!
And, btw if you're frustrated with your personal blogs, under no circumstances turn to online arcades to take the place of your freelance writing income...it will not surpass it for a long long while...if anyone disgrees, have them show you a startup arcade that makes more than $100 monthly in the first 5 months and they can't already own another PR4 or above one....if someone claims such, they are lying.
Best of luck!
