Episode 2: My Experience as a freelancer

In the previous episode, I told you about the beginning of my freelancing career, my Google AdSense earning and YouTube channel. If you have missed it, you can read my post here.

Okay, so I got my first earning from AdSense (YouTube earning +  blog earning). But, still, in this expensive world, that amount could not fulfill my needs. I have not told you, guys, how I ended up working as a blogger. So, what happened: after my graduation, I was eagerly finding something through which I would never get bored in my life. So, I found my interest in web designing and web development.

I joined an institute to learn designing and some coding, and one thing I can say: it was not interesting at all for me. Sitting hours and just writing stupid codes to make a below average looking website. Then I explored more, and one of my teachers told me about WordPress. I hope many of you have heard of it. It is a free platform to start a wonderful website. In the beginning, I thought that all the available themes are not free, and I did not have enough money to buy a full customized good-looking theme. So, I decided to create my own.

After spending many hours, I finally made my own theme on WordPress, which was really ugly in comparison to others, and I decided to remove it as soon as possible. But, you know, I think that sometimes your success is the time and efforts that you put on that ugly product which is definitely a failure. I learned many things about WordPress in that project, and later even created websites for other people. I charged 70-100$ for each, which helped me in paying for my rent and food.

Soon, I stopped getting website projects, and again the situation got worse. I daily wrote 4-5 articles for blastingnews.com to make at least 25-30$ a week. It had been not that much bad until they removed that opportunity. I was without work for almost 1 month and borrowed money.

In November 2017, I got an opportunity to create videos for the same website at 5$/video for the first 21 days and then 3$/video. For my whole video blaster career, I earned 2000-2500$ which was almost equal to an annual salary of a regular Indian employer, and even more.

Meanwhile, I was regularly publishing videos on my YouTube channel which was also providing me some passive income. Currently, I have almost 10k subscribers on my channel and 1.7 million views.

In the next episode, I will tell you how I grew my YouTube channel.
