Good morning, Freelance Writing Jobs community. School is canceled for today and possibly tomorrow, thanks to the impending blizzard, so I’m working ahead on Tuesday night. Another reminder of how it’s good to have a backup plan in place for every situation. That isn’t to say I can’t work when my son is at home, just that it’s harder to get as much done. Besides, I may want to go outside and do some sledding or have a snowball fight. Wherever you are I hope you’re warm and dry. Check in and tell us what’s going on in your neck [Read more…]

Today we’re offering up some parenting markets. We’ve been listing magazine markets and other writing guidelines this week and many valid questions are being raised. For example, how do I know these markets accept freelancers, and also, how do I know the pay rate is what they say it is? It’s simple, I did some research. Research that’s easy enough for every single freelance writer to do if he or she wishes to write for certain markets.

75 “Write for Us” Pages

old typewriter

When I first began freelancing, I found clients by searching for “Write for Us” pages of different websites.  In fact, I found a couple of cushy gigs writing for websites that weren’t very well known.  I’ve been wanting to compile a list of many of these types pages for some time, and since we’re talking about markets this week, it seemed to be as good a time as any. You’d be surprised at how many unadvertised opportunities are out there. Today’s offering is only part one. Keep in mind that I did my best to find paying markets. If the [Read more…]

The Writing Process: 5 Steps from Start to Finish

alphabet blocks

A couple of weeks ago on Twitter, I threw out a very simple question, “what shall I write about?” I received  a variety of comments ranging from donuts to my own awesomeness, both of which are excellent topics, but I’m pretty sure they’re not what you’re looking for here. The truth is, it can be a challenge to find fresh topics to write about on a regular basis. After four and a half years of writing about writing, the last thing I want to do is bore anyone or get redundant on you. Admittedly, I asked the question to stimulate [Read more…]

Freelance Writer Jobs for May 15, 2009

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2009/05/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…]

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2009/02/freelance-writing-jobs-for-february-24-2009/

by Deb Ng So I’ve been checking out leads online for about ten years now.  Every now and then I think about what has changed and what has stayed the same. There are definitely more ads that don’t pay. When I first started freelancing it was mostly literary journals or poetry sites that weren’t paying.  There wasn’t a lot of folks expecting you to stock their sites and blogs for the glory.  The offers were a lot more realistic a decade ago as well. Though I saw many calls for content, there weren’t any of the “I need 40 articles [Read more…]
