@nate99 sorry but only just seen this post.
I got into this from a previous business that I had. I was writing blog posts on a regular basis for myself and my business partner.
My first venture into freelance was through Fiverr and then the likes of Copify. Copify starts off paying 1p per word...
Writing - £1339.20
Etsy - £1754.62
Prolific - £9.15
Clickworker - £27.24
Total for the month - £3130.21/£1500 (finalising what the profit is from Etsy but think overall profit for the month with everything combined is £2330)
