I write because I enjoy it. The thing I enjoy most apart from making money, is seeing traffic spikes to my online content. The majority of my online writing is at Squidoo where I am doing very well. I am finding my offline job stressful due to long hours including nightshifts and weekend work. I like many other people believe life is for living and it is far too short so I want to maintain a balance between work and play. When I am not at my offline job I am either on the internet or with my family or boyfriend. I want to devote more time to online writing and my family and less to my offline job, therefore I have asked for less hours in my offline job. I have only been able to do this because I have worked so hard online building up my portfolio of work. This has helped me overpay my mortgage significantly reducing my debt and monthly payments. I like to play it safe so if my online portfolio disappeared completely and I had less hours in my offline job I could still manage. Therefore I will be spending as much of my free time as possible expanding my horizons online and paying down my mortgage debt.
