Your Turn: Should Freelance Writing Bloggers Blog Like they Talk?

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2010/05/your-turn-should-freelance-writing-bloggers-blog-like-they-talk/
blog

Blogging is more conversational than traditional freelance writing. Bloggers don’t have to follow a particular style or format, nor do they have to consult manuals or guides to make sure they’re doing everything right. Most bloggers blog like they talk. In fact, when you think about it, the average person doesn’t speak  in the AP or Chicago format. We rant, rave, swear and use run on sentences. Still, I find I have to check myself to make sure I’m not blogging like I talk. Because I’m a writer, I’m not really expected to blog like other bloggers as I’m expected [Read more…]

Does Guest Blogging Work? Part 1: Traffic

guests

I have  a love hate relationship with guest blogging. On one hand, I enjoy sharing with other bloggers’ communities. The flip side is that as a freelance writing blogger I’m supposed to discourage writing for free. It’s kind of a sticky situation because we complain that too many people are advertising on Craigslist for free labor but then we turn around and offer our expertise to other blogs because they’re supposed to be good marketing. So as you can see, we’re a little contradictory. What I’d like to explore in this series is whether or not guest blogging works. Over [Read more…]

How Do You Support Your Favorite Bloggers?

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2010/03/how-do-you-support-your-favorite-bloggers/
Community

During our last night at SXSW, my good friends  Andy Hayes, Chris Garrett and I enjoyed some dinner and conversation. Our topic revolved around blog community and whether or not our communities owe us anything for all the information we share. We all agreed that our communities support us in many ways including visiting our blogs every time we post. Without this type of support, there would be no reason to blog at all. I always said that without my community I’m nothing and both Chris and Andy agreed. We appreciate the loyalty of our individual communities and we find [Read more…]

How to Start a Blog: Part 1 – Choosing a Platform

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2009/03/how-to-start-a-blog/

Ok, so I think we all agree one can’t really earn a livable wage blogging for a network. As mentioned here before, there Are perks, but it’s best to start out with a network and take that experience and use it to start your own successful blog. First things first though… Blogs don’t happen over night. It can take years for a blog to become successful and turn a profit. When it hits however, there’s no better feeling. So enter into blogging with the mindset that you will not be an overnight sensation. It’s happened, but it’s rare. Look at [Read more…]

My Morning (Procrastination) Ritual

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2008/07/my-morning-procrastination-ritual/

Do you have a morning ritual? Do you have a list of things to do before you begin working? I do. At first it was fifteen minutes, now it takes about an hour. I enjoy my morning ritual as it’s the perfect companion to my morning cup of coffee, but still, an hour. I wake up at 6:00 simply because I like to enjoy my coffee ritual in peace before the house wakes up. After I stoke up the laptop I: Check the various email accounts and respond accordingly – or sort those I don’t respond to into the appropriate [Read more…]
