I earned all of this money in November working from home — and in various coffee shops — on my laptop. I started freelancing in March 2020, and it’s been a rollercoaster.

My worst month I earned a total of $748. My best month I earned around $6,500.

This month I earned a decent amount doing work I enjoy, but I’m still far away from my goals. I’m writing this article is to share part of my journey and hopefully inspire you.

How much I made: $633

What I did

This month on Medium was shocking!

In October I made $11, and this month I made $633. I knew I’d make more, but I was not expecting a 55x increase.

This month, I had a total of 70 articles that earned some money. That was a huge jump from the 21 articles that made money in October. I published a total of 38 articles in November, which added up to over 35,000 words. I also wrote a bunch of drafts that I may or may not publish in the future.

I wrote and published my best two articles on November 5th, and earned a total of $451 from them.
