I keep seeing blogs and forum posts that promise "You too can make $100 a day freelancing!" as though doing so is the greatest accomplishment a new writer could achieve.

While it's a place to start, I think it's a low place to start. It makes us lazy -- the "all you need to do is" approach to freelancing generally sends writers right to the content mills.

What do you think? What's your absolute minimum you want to earn annually? I hesitate to ask about daily because it's tougher to earn "daily" than to shoot for annual totals that you can track monthly (my method -- do whatever works for you).

Would $100 a day be enough for you? If so, convince me. If not, tell me what is enough.
