Freelance Writing Jobs was born out of a sense of community, of freelance writers helping each other out in various ways. With the passing of time comes change, as we all know, and in the past years, we have had to cut back on regularly publishing fresh content other than job listings.
What we’ve got for you
One thing you may not have been aware of is that we have been wanting to bring you more in terms of resources for freelance writers. Earlier this year, we started working on the idea that our community ought to have a special, dedicated section wherein everyone can gain access to articles offering practical information that will enable freelance writers – experienced and otherwise – to get ahead in their career. After some months of planning, researching, and writing, we’re finally ready to let everyone know (officially) about the FWJ Resources Area!
The Resources Area is where you can find all sorts of tips for freelance writers, and we’ve chosen six main categories for the Resources Area:
- Business Tips – where you can find articles on taxes, money saving ideas, etc.;
- Job Hunting Tips – we cover everything job-related, from resume writing tips to dealing with clients;
- Writing Tips – whether you need help with grammar or writing style you’ll find what you need here;
- Online Portfolio – because an online presence is essential these days;
- General Tips – the catch-all bucket;
- Downloadables – templates, free software, and more!
We’ve got a handful of resource articles up, ready for you to devour, but we are on a mission to continue to give you resources that you will find useful in the most practical sense.
Welcome back, Jodee Redmond!
Another thing we’re really excited about is the fact that we have one of the original FWJ crew members at the helm of the Resources: Jodee Redmond. Oldtimers and new friends, please join us in welcoming Jodee back!
