I was looking for some sound advice on how to get my foot in the door with freelance writing and came across this.
Originally, I had responded to an opportunity posted on Facebook. It was a change to guest blog and a very high traffic and respectable blog. http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/guest-posting/
After registering for this great opportunity, I decided to browse the content.
I have been trying to get my first freelance writing or even copyediting, proofreading gig for a while now with no luck. So when I saw this article, I immediately clicked and read it hungrily searching for the answers I was seeking.
I found them... and am going to implement them more aggressively now that I know I am on the right track.
I have already voiced my interest in writing and setting up a Fan Page for our local Children's Foundation. I am also going to attend the new workshops/get togethers for those in our community who are involved in or want to get involved in (like me) the local creative industries.
There are other things I have seen a need for in our business community that I will offer my services to.
Eventually, all this networking and gratis work will help me boost my brand and reputation and I will start earning an income doing what I love - writing.
