Every year FreelanceWriting.com survey’s freelance writers to find out how we’re doing. Below is their infographic summing up their results. They also publish a white paper that explains how they do the survey. Take a look.
I’m never sure exactly what to make of surveys like this. An annual income of $10,000 sounds pretty awful until you couple it with the fact that most of those surveyed only work 20 hours a week. Still not great, but better.
The thing to remember is what I make or the survey respondents make has absolutely nothing to do what you make. Poke around and share your favorite faq in comments.
Write well and often,
