Freelance Writing Jobs for January 14, 2010

My theme for 2010 is positivity. I wrote this word down in big letters and hung it over my desk. My reminder keeps me from saying things I’ll regret and letting negativity get the best of me. What reminders do you need to hang in front of your work space?

    Hey Deb,

    You may have already noticed this, but the first gig listed (“Web Content Writer Needed”) specifies “no pay” at the bottom of the ad. Just wanted to make sure folks were aware of that:)

    • says

      Hi Laura,

      “No pay” is the Craiglist default. The author of the ad also asked for writers to quote a rate so I posted the gig. A gig marked “no pay” doesn’t necessarily mean no pay. Craigslist defaults to “no pay” if the author doesn’t put in a dollar amount.

    Is there something wrong with the website? When I click on Writing Gig, I get a page which lists gigs from Dec 1, 2009 and before. I cant see any job posts from 2010? Thanks for such a great website and your fantastic efforts :)

      Hi Tanya,

      I’m not sure where you’re looking? Exactly which “writing gig” link are you clicking? I get the current leads from the home page at, from this blog and from the other blogs in the network. Others have said the lists are old as well. I’m not seeing what you’re seeing.

      Can you tell which link you’re clicking on which page, and, also, what browswer you’re using?

        Hi Deb,
        I don’t know what happened, but it working fine now :) Basically till yesterday, when I would click on the “writing gig” tag , I would directed to a page which had gigs from December 1, 2009 onwards. However now its working fine. I really how it happened :) Thanks a lot !

    Just an FYI-the entry is incorrect. None of the blogs require South Florida residency. The other job openings listed on the page do, however.
