Woohooo! Biggest order to date! $720!
I have amazing news! Or is it? I can't decide.
One of my clients has offered me a big content writing job - to write 40+ posts (600-words each) at $18 per post.
I've been a bit hesitant to take the job because I'm clueless on the topic and it's for their site, not mine.
I took some time today to understand the brief and do a test-run. I did heaps of research and keyword research, wrote the first post and created an infographic.
It took me about 5 or 6 hours to get the first post done. But I should be able to speed up my process when I write the other posts, now that I have the format down pat.
I was really happy with the end result and the client is happy with it too.
I've proven to myself I can do the job, now I must focus on efficiency and speed.
Am I selling myself short?
I keep second-guessing myself on this one. I currently make $40 to $48 for a 500-word sponsored post. Here, I'm taking a drop in rate and it's not even for one of my own websites so there's no long-term benefit, SEO benefit etc.
Guaranteed Work vs Higher Pay
That said, I don't have anyone else beating down my door to offer me 40 posts - guaranteed - over the next 2 months. And I'm excited by the challenge.
Do you think I'm selling myself short? Or do you think it's a fabulous opportunity?

To Your Success
Thanks for all your amazing comments everyone. I was fascinated to see how each comment reflected a different corner of my mind.
The good news:
I got two more posts written this morning. They took about an hour each, so it's definitely going faster now that I've done most of the research.
By the end of this project, I should be a machine. hehe.
