Freelance writing has never been as popular as it is these days. After all, there is such a huge demand for writers who can provide quality content – both online and offline. The online realm is, understandably, booming, and while there are lots of opportunities, the competition is also rather stiff.
Of course, you can always find writing jobs that will bring you a little bit of money. If, however, you want to be more serious about your freelance writing career and rely on it as your main source of income, you have to be able to stand out and get the higher paying jobs. Read More
Your blog should be an extension of your business and a showcase for your personal thoughts, experience and knowledge. Whether you’re a freelancer, an SME or a huge corporation, you’ve got something to say and you will almost certainly have an audience for whatever is going on in that brain and dying to find its way onto your blog.
The key to having a successful blog is to have a plan. Just throwing up content every now and then isn’t going to find you the audience you want, and visitors to your blog certainly won’t return if you don’t give them a good enough reason to. The first way to ensure that they do come back is to make it easy for them to do so. Take a long, hard look at the design and layout of your blog, and be honest with yourself. Would you stick around if it belonged to somebody else? Also, consider how easy it is to find once people are on your site. Display the most recent posts in a sidebar and have “Blog” listed proudly within your navigation. Read More
It doesn’t matter if you’re a huge business or a freelance writer, the importance of having a regularly updated blog is super essential. In our modern age of smartphone, five second attention spanners and… SQUIRREL! Sorry, where was I. Oh yes, in the digital age, we want it here and we want it in an instant. Start to fall behind and you might not find your way back.
This makes having a blog all the more important, and knowing what makes a good one can increase the amount of traffic that comes to your site and build you a reputation as an authority in whatever niche you work in or whatever it is you blog about. In order to do this though, you need to be able to put it all together: Knowledge and personality – and then find the time to keep doing it. Find the time and you’ll start to get the hang of it, and the more you enjoy it, the more your readers will too. Read More
If you want to make money on the Internet then there’s a good chance you will have to become a great writer. There are other options and writing is not the only way. When people have a lot of money they can pay someone to do it for them.

I recently wrote a post about writing what you don’t know. Everyone seemed to agree that writing what you don’t know takes longer and doesn’t turn out nearly as well as writing about something you really understand. Nevertheless, most of the bloggers agreed that there are situations where you have to write about what you don’t know. If you’re a full-time blogger like me for a company that asks you to write guest posts all day every day, there comes a time when you’re going to have to write about something you may have to really research. In other words, you have to try and find articles written by the experts and then put your own spin on the same information. This led me to wonder: Is this considered copying?
I think that there is a fine line between copying and researching to create a great article. For this reason, many bloggers do copy articles without even realizing they are copying. It’s important that a blogger really understands how to write about something where research is involved.
