Ever wondered how you ended up in your profession? Did you choose it when you weren’t sure what else was out there or did you just fall into it by chance? Many of us work in jobs we’re not particularly interested in just because they pay well, or they provide us with the stability we crave. While these might be great ways to justify staying in your job, if you don’t love what you do, it can make the path to fulfillment tricky.
A common reaction to a need for increased financial capacity is cutting back on expenses. However, trimming down can put a real strain on your quality of life and for some; it may not be possible to squeeze more out of their budget.
Ever thought about picking up a side hustle? I’m guessing that if you’re reading this you probably have. Side hustling has literally saved us financially. When we first started our “get out of debt” journey, we had a 65% – 70% debt-to-income ratio.

Hey, Frugal Farmer friends! I wanted to share with ya’ll a little bit today about the income I make blogging and how I make money writing for blogs as well. Often times, when I tell people that I have a “career” as a blogger, they look at me with that look. You know: the “Yeah, I KNOW that’s a scam” look. As if I were part of a pyramid scheme in which a secret society finds some hidden, illegal route to making the big bucks and alienating family and friends in the process. 🙂 However, making money blogging and writing for blogs is a real and valid source of income for thousands and thousands of people.
