Would you say that your income as a freelancer provides you with a living wage or enough to cover basics of life such as shelter, food and other necessities of life?

I'm not solely relying on freelance work and have other sources of income. But the freelance work does give me some extra money I would not enjoy otherwise.
Not a full time job for me but the extra money does come in handy.
To be honest I earn more as a freelancer than I used to earn when I was in full time employment. I have been working online for quite some time and I am liking the experience so far. I am into writing, online selling, forum posting, I do micro tasks at times and I earn a decent amount from online tutoring.
I earn just a little as a content provider for forums since I don't have much time to spare due to my full time job in the office. But as per my estimate, my earnings will not reach the level of a living wage even if I go full time in freelancing work. Perhaps I need to have my own blog to have an added income with a chance to get an article go viral and earn more. My present scope of work cannot give me a decent amount of earnings.
Quick Answer: Nope
Long Answer: I'm just earning $200 a month from doing various online work, converted to Philippine Peso with a $1 = PHP 52 exchange rate net that's only PHP 10,400. The current minimum wage here is about PHP 18,000 or about $350 a month for entry level low rank employees and with that amount one can't even support a family with kids.
So I'm just earning $200 online per month and I use the money for extra school allowances of my kids and to pay for my internet service and for Pizza.
