Freelance Writing Jobs for May 27, 2009

Are you going through your end of the month frenzy of playing catchup and invoicing clients. While I love the first day of the month because it’s so open to possibilities, I’m not a fan of the last few days of the month because of all I have to do to close out the month. I try to schedule all my tasks accordingly, which helps, but the best laid plans aren’t always the best laid plans. What’s your end of the month ritual?

The Freelance Writing Jobs Network is Looking for a Blogger With a Good Sense of Humor

Hi folks, I’m looking for a blogger for the Freelance Writing Jobs and Other Stuff blog. Wait! Stop! Don’t send that resume yet, let me tell you what I’m looking for…. Freelance Writing Jobs and Other Stuff was intended to be a blog filled with fun stuff for writers. Funny anecdotes, puzzles, links to amusing blogs and videos and anything that would put a smile on our faces and give us a break from our normal freelance writing existence. Unfortunately life got in the way and it wasn’t such a funny blog, after all. You can help me change that. [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for May 21, 2009

This morning finds me filled with options and hopeful  for the future. My job situation has changed and I’ll have a lot more time on my hands. My options are to: find another full time job, supplement my now part time job with freelance writing and consulting opportunities, or chill. I thought about only doing the part time work over the summer and taking time to relax, but with my husbands impending layoff, that’s not practical. After working full time for one company for a year, I forgot what it’s like to have options…and freedom. I’m very hopeful for the [Read more…]

Freelance Writer Jobs for May 15, 2009

We’re halfway through the month, how’s everyone doing? I like to do a little mid month analysis to see how I compare to other months. By scrutinizing my accounts each month and doing comparison to previous months and quarters I can see where I need to step up my game. Also, if I’m doing worse I know I need to hustle and find more clients. If I’m doing better, I can pat myself on a job well done. I also like to set goals. When I was freelancing full time, I set a goal each January to earn $10,000 more [Read more…]

Freelance Writer Jobs for May 13, 2009

So I’ve been working from the library for the past couple of mornings because the construction across the road has reached new levels of distraction. Every morning I work to the sounds of dump trucks, tractors and a new sidewalk being put in. A large, upscale development is going up in what used to be the farm across the street. Since my office is in the front of the house I’ve been moving my laptop into the kitchen and working there, but lately it’s too much. I’m not one to complain about progress, but don’t you wish sometimes life would [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for Monday, May 11, 2009

All rested from the weekend? I love Mondays because I’m always raring to go. That doesn’t mean I was rather productive on the weekend too. Although I wasn’t planning to work, I managed to knock out some email, discuss a collaboration with another well known freelance writing blogger, and get a load or two of laundry in. Not huge amounts of work, but enough to keep life from getting too overwhelming. Do you read the other blogs in this network? Which are your favorites? Also, what do you want to learn about or discuss the most? Leads… Freelance Travel Writers [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for May 6, 2009

Good morning. In looking at the schedule ahead, I see I have a very busy day. I’m finding that if I begin work at 7:30 when my family is on their way, and work straight through until 2:30, I have 7 uninterrupted hours to get things done. After that, I have time for my family, the house, and more. Of course, this is easier said than done as I find myself working ten hours a day and more. Still, I think today’s tip of the day is to find uninterrupted blocks of time to work, and try and do this [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for May 5, 2009

My biggest challenge as a blogger is proofreading. Because I have so many things going on at once, I tend to post and run – without checking my work. It’s not until I start receiving negative comments here (and on other blogs) and nasty emails that I realize I did it again. Even though I turn in my clients’ work after reading it over several times, it’s still a good reminder for me to be careful what I post to my blogs, even if they are more personal. For instance, if I want to use FWJ as a reference for [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for April 28, 2009

I’m not sure how long this unseasonably warm weather will last, but I’m enjoying it while I can. I’ve been working from my back deck enjoying the fresh air after being cooped up for the last several months. Freelance writers are portable. We can take our laptops and travel anywhere we want. I’ve been known to get stuff done at piano lessons, the park and I’m a fixture at the local coffee shop. Where do you go to work when you don’t want to deal with the same old scenery?

Freelance Writing Jobs for Sunday, April 19, 2009

I’m hoping that things will pick up job wise (and traffic wise) starting tomorrow. I think a lot of the slowdown is because of all the folks taking spring breaks. Honestly, I wish all the schools around the country would have the same time off in order to better plan outings with family, cousins, etc. I notice some typical slow down patterns for traffic to this blog and even job postings. For instance, from around Thanksgiving to the beginning of Janaury things drop off a bit, the same with spring break, holiday weekends, and summer time. Do you take time [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for Saturday, April 18, 2009

I’d like to apologize for including a few clunkers in yesterday’s list. Freelance Writing Jobs has a policy never to post jobs under $10, jobs from term paper mills and other insulting gigs. In my haste to get leads posted, a couple slipped through the cracks. So sorry. I was doing a search for “freelance writing jobs” this morning on Twitter. I find Twitter searches are a great way to meet like-minded people and mingle with members of the community. As a result, many of you might find me following, so I can keep connected. If you’d like to follow [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for April 8, 2009

I took a day off today from my job as Community Manager at BlogTalkRadio. It’s spring break and I thought it would be nice to have a mom/kid day. I think some folks find working at home to be a great way to spend time with kids, and it is, but it’s also difficult to balance the day and the job. Though I’m fortunate to have a job that allows me the flexibility to take my son to his activities or pick up some groceries, it’s not as easy to take time off for family as when I freelanced. This [Read more…]

We’ll help you get past that excuse and motivate you into action. Leads…

Freelance Writing Jobs for Tuesday, March 3, 2009

As you are no doubt well aware, we made some changes. In addition to making a prettier blog, I wanted the Freelance Writing Jobs home page to provide better navigation to this and the other six blogs in this network. This should be the last format change for a very long time. The Men with Pens outdid themselves this time, didn’t they?  I’d like to thank them for all their hard work and patience throughout the evolution of FWJ. If you have a blog  design/redesign or other project, do give them a ping. They’re top notch and they rock the [Read more…]

Freelance Writing Jobs for Sunday, March 1, 2009

Here’s some interesting food for thought: My first paid blogging gig wasn’t for a blog network. It was for a major cable women’s network and I was paid $500 for 200 words a week. That’s $500 for 800 words a month. Nowadays, of course, most blog networks are struggling. I’ll be doing a series at Network Blogging Tips on whether or not one can really earn a living as a blogger for hire, but in the mean time I’m always interested in your thoughts and experiences. Do you blog for a living? If so is it for a network or [Read more…]
