Seven great blog posts about freelance writingHey, writers!

Looking for a little summertime inspiration to get your freelance writing in gear?

Well, I noticed that my January roundup of the most popular posts of 2013 was the most popular post I’ve done here on the blog so far this year. Apparently, you find these best-of compendiums useful.

    Just a quick comment on #5 – Use This Simple Tool to Move Forward With Your Freelance Writing: I’m going to check in the den for “how to” info on writing white papers. If this is a topic you haven’t covered in any of your “writer tutorials,” when you’re planning workshops for the rest of 2014, would you add this to your list?

    My favourite was the one about the Elance/Odesk merger. I was caught in the Elance trap for about a year. Once I broke out, my income doubled overnight and my workload cut in half. Then I had time to explore other income avenues.

    Thanks again for being so helpful! 🙂 I’ve been meaning to ask if there has been a post on knowing how to determine a fee/charge for a job. I know this will depend a lot on the type of work – and magazines will nearly always have their own rates, but are there general guidelines….anywhere. I must look in the Writers Yearbook….
