Work, Domain Names and The Freelance Life

Domain Names, That Luana Me, The Freelance Life ยท September 18, 2014, Thursday ยท 4 comments

Work work work.

My life has been all about work over the last three weeks.

Which is good! I’m hoping to reach a $1,200 monthly income starting in October, so that means my wedding and moving out also begin to turn into reality.

You can’t do a lot without money, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

However, I’m also very tired. I tend to burnout very easily and I have to be careful with other health issues, too, so I’m going to pay more attention to my work-life balance from now on.

Also, I need to write for leisure, not just money, and this blog needs quite an update.

That Luana me... back in July, I think.

So, to start off, I cut down my domain number to 270 (from 340+). You might think that’s still quite a big number, but if you run several character blogs along with many other personal and business websites, you can easily see how the number jacks up pretty easily after all.

If you are interested in a domain and want to make me an offer, I have them all listed here and you can just email me to domains@luanaspinetti.com to make an offer — or buy them at $10 each. Some domains are for sale in the NameCheap Marketplace, so just look up ‘luanatf’ in the Seller field and you can buy them easily from there. ๐Ÿ™‚

The second update concerns my health. Looks like I will have to lose some weight, but not for aesthetics — I have to do it to stop my body from producing a type of fat that gets in the way of my metabolism and my hormones, thus making it rough for my period (which has been going on for almost 3 months straight now) and my future ability to conceive.

Since the issue is serious and it might turn into an obstacle to having a family, I have to anticipate my exercise and food control plan that I originally wanted to start next year. Unfortunately, issues related to my period and uncomfortable uterus contractions require me to act faster than planned. Oh well, I can still do that, right?

To all people who mocked me all throughout my teen years for my being fat— don’t worry, I’m not doing this to let you ‘win’. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m doing this to improve my health as well as my fertility, so this is really not about you. Ah yes— I will be losing weight but my aim is NOT to get thin — I’m looking forward to a healthier plump body, so to speak. My identity (the image I have of myself) is not thin, and it will never be. You can be as thin as you wish, of course; my own choices do not affect yours. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lastly — and then I’ll call it a day for this post — I’m trying hard to fight back shyness to be able to interview people via phone/Skype/VoIP. I need to feel in control and not stutter too much, or there’s a risk I will distract my interviewee. This is a skill I need to hone and practice practice practice, because I need it for work.

If you like Skype chats, my sweethearts, we may try chat verbally sometimes. You would help me greatly. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I hope I can return the favor somehow.

So that’s it. Until the next post, darlings.

    Hey Luana, lovely blog! The design is simply gorgeous. Your insights into freelancing are very eye-opening. I hope you feel less burned out soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love blogging as a hobby as I have dominion over my own space on the internet to write and design graphics as I choose! I could only imagine making a living from it! What was your career progression like?

    All the best,

    Jenny

      Hey Jenny! Thank you, I’m happy to know your like my design. ๐Ÿ™‚ It didn’t take long to make, but it might still have a few cross-compatibility issues on browsers. I hope to have more time for testing soon.

      Freelancing is tough, unlike many seem to think. You are your own boss, but you still have to talk deadlines with your client and all, so it’s not easy. I’m currently sick but I’m still trying to do some work, because I’ve been sick so often over the last two months. I’ll be taking the full weekend off now, so hopefully I’ll have my energies to work back on Monday. I pray so. I need my work and I don’t want to lose my clients to all this sickness.

      Jenny, I think your blog is amazing! Personal and professional at the same time. ๐Ÿ˜€ Totally COOL! If you like the freelancing world, you can join me and other people at Wispie.net here: http://wispie.net/index.php?/topic/45-freelance/

      My career started with web design commissions and sponsored posts. Yep! No big stuff, just a few bucks, but hey, it got me started. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be blogging more about it. If you’re interested in how I got started as a freelance *writer*, though, you can read it here: http://www.writersmind.eu/freelance-writing-how-to-get-yourself-started/

      Thanks for commenting! ^_^
