My Online Writing Job-Search Rules…and When to Break Them

Back when I first started out as a freelance writer, it was tough to find writing jobs. I’d either have to look in the Writers Market, or get in my car and go down to the library and get out the Gale’s guide to research possible article markets. Next, I carved my articles on a rock…OK, I’m not that old, but there was a lot more legwork involved!

7 Ways to Shake Up Your Online Writing Job Search

Are you in a job-ad rut? I hear a lot of complaints from people that there are no good jobs advertised online.

If that’s you…you may have heard that insanity is sometimes defined as doing the same thing every day but expecting a different result. If you don’t think you’re seeing quality job listings, it’s time to shake up your online job-search routine.
