I spend a lot of time working on side-projects. Usually, my focus is building new apps, web or mobile. I thought it was clever to build apps and learn new programing techniques in my free time, as it will help with my career. But building a production ready app is a lot more complex than just learning a new framework. So I rarely ever finish these apps. Sure it teaches new skills but it doesn’t meet definition of side-hustle.
Also if I ever finished something, then I rarely ever marketed it.
One of my favorite hobby is making videos. I used to make a lot of random videos but never really tried to get better at it. Now as a new father, I am making a lot more videos and trying to improve my videos. And I was looking at some new non-programming side-hustles. It seems like there are a lot of videography tutorials but that is something I am currently interested in. So it might be a good side-hustle. A lot of video gear is pretty expensive, so opportunities for affiliate links. And then there are stock video sites which is another avenue for generating passive income.
Also this time I will focus on learning about SEO and marketing this blog and share those experiences too. So it will be kind of meta.
To summarize, my side-hustle objectives are:
- Focus on improving my videos
- List my videos on stock videos sites
- Share my experience with videography and stock video sites
- Learn and improve SEO and marketing of this blog
- Share my experience with SEO and marketing
- Monetize this blog with affiliate links
