My Road to $10,000 a Month (Week 4, May Overview)

I added in 2 more days this week to cover the whole of May. All the same, I was absolutely floored by my earnings this week.

Here’s the breakdown:

MAY 2020 WEEK 4 (23 May to 31 May)


I’m not exactly sure what transpired, but I received an influx of new projects, mostly for logo design and Twitch graphics. Perhaps the daily posting on social media (particularly LinkedIn and Twitter) and promotion of my services on Reddit and Discord have allowed me to reach more potential clients.

A number of projects that I worked on over the past couple of weeks were also finalized, leading to more than double my earnings compared to previous weeks.


I have started selling digital prints of my work on my Etsy shop. Since I’m not based in the US, it seems like the best approach so I don’t have to deal with shipping costs. Hopefully I can turn it into another source of passive income. Here’s an example of a successful shop selling digital prints:

As mentioned previously, I have been posting consistently on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and DeviantArt. While I wasn’t a believer of Facebook Groups, since joining and engaging with active communities some individuals have reached out to me with business enquiries. Unfortunately nothing came out of them, but I can see the potential and will continue to explore Facebook Groups further.


As May comes to a close, my total earnings amount to $3,937.77, with the majority from design projects. I believe most of my clients came from the promotion of my services on Reddit. Twitter has also been good to me, with streamers and content creators sending me a number of projects. Here’s this month’s breakdown:

Source of IncomeAmount Earned ($)
Design Projects3,743.87
Passive Income (POD)145.63
Blog Advertising1.51

Honestly I was expecting around $3,000 based on the earnings from the first three weeks, but this last week blew everything out of the water. I’m not sure if this trend will continue, but I’ll do my best to earn even more next month.
