At what point will/did you tell friends/relatives that you're a freelance writer?
In general, when did you start telling friends,relatives you're a free lance writer? Was it based on pay outs? Followers? Visits to your Hubs?
I did not tell my father I was a freelancer writer, he just found out. I wrote lots of things but did not make enough money. LOL
I started telling people when I'd been full-time for about six months and was earning more than my previous job. It still took a while to really feel comfortable saying, "I'm a writer" because of all the connotations that people tie in to that, but now that it's been almost five years full-time I can say it with confidence .
I ve not told anybody close to me, maybe one day they will find out themselves when am so much made. [hope you understand]
If/when it happens that I earn my living by freelance writing, then I will describe myself as a freelance writer to friends/relatives.
I didn't! They just realised that I was writing more and more and spending a lot of time on the computer. Then, they began to freely read my work as I was posting it online, commenting on it and showing support.

Another hubber, DrMark1961 asked if Hubbing could be a full time job, which got my attention. I have always wanted to be a full time writer, and while I know that Hubpages is not going to give me a hefty pay out what with the google adsense and all that other malarkey taking chunks out (as other...
