September 2021 Smashing Income (The Published Parent)


The McLoughlin household is holding steady and working from home still! 

I am still blessed to be able to work from home proofreading, blogging, writing articles, and writing books and to be able to do it in my sweatpants or swimsuit, out on the deck or at the dining room table, at my house, or traveling with my kids and husband for his work to places like Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and more.

I like to share my income from home with you to show you that I am a real person with unique challenges and actual successes. No, it is not a full-time income, but I am not aiming for that right now. I am thankful and grateful that my husband has a good job as an engineer, and that my main job is homeschooling. Words are just my part-time job for now. When the kids are grown, I foresee working more hours with my word career and helping to pay for travel and retirement. But that's still a few years away :-)

I like to also share Joanna Penn's (The Creative Penn) work-from-home author revenue because she is a very successful 6-figure author. I love her 2020/2021 Book Sales Revenue Breakdown post where she says, "So please just take this as data for interest, not for comparison."

By the way, if you're interested in making money working from home by being on the Fiverr platform, please use my referral link! As far as work-from-home jobs go, this has been one that I have loved since 2013! And you don't just have to do proofreading there like I do. There are hundreds of money-making options on there, as well as great courses you can purchase to help with your career, and all sorts of services that could help you, like marketing, public relations, writing, advertising, SEO tips, and so much more!

Now it's time to check out my September 2021 income below! You can find my entire 2020 income report here.

What am I currently working on? Well, I'm working on the Write Anywhere series books right now and hoping to get it out very soon. Then I'll work on the other books in the series, to include national markets, a how-to stand-alone book, and a workbook (and later, writing markets for teens to break into, as well as women's writing markets and national/international/online markets). What are you working on?

Have files of article reprints that you own but have no clue where to start reselling them? Have ideas for some fantastic new pieces but no idea who might want them? Check out my thick 441-page print book of tips, tricks, and insider information, as well as 384 paying parenting and family markets! You can order "How to Get Published (and Paid!) Writing About Your Kids" on Amazon here. Or you can enjoy it NOW by purchasing the instant download here for just $9.99!
