Your 20 Favorite Freelance Writing Posts of 2012 — So Far

Carol Tice

Summer for me is time to relax a little, enjoy the sunny weather…and analyze what writers like most about this blog. So I’ve done a little research into the most popular posts on here in the first half of 2012.

Interesting observation: Only three of the top ten don’t start with “How.” You want to learn how to do stuff, it’s clear.

I’m also impressed with how many of the posts have real staying power. Quite a few of the links here were originally written before this year, but the tips in them remain relevant.

I also see several posts on social media here, so I’ll be planning more of those, too.

Finally, I’m thrilled to see several guest posts make the list! I love paying for guest posts as it results in a terrific quality level in the posts I can get from other writers, as you’ll see below.

Enjoy! These are ranked in order of how many views the posts got.
