I’ve been really inspired by recent posts demanding freelance writers get paid what they are worth and how much effort and time they put into their work. It saddens me to see job postings where they want writers to pay for less than a few bucks.
But I just wanted to quickly share some personally good news on the “free” freelance front:
1) I did my first guest post on another topic I love and hope to cater to in my business – the paralegal industry: “3 Tips for the Successful Paralegal Student”
2) I’m going to be a community blogger for AL.com! Very excited about it, as it will allow me to talk about localized versions of the things I love.
I’m trying to establish expertise in multiple areas – which I know goes against everything you learn about business. But I’m also learning that I am a “multipotentialite” – I have many different interests I can put together with an overarching theme. Still working on that.
Also, the AL.com site is the largest in Alabama, so it will give me an opportunity to share my writing with more people.
Thanks for letting me gab about my excitement. I know that’s also a big no-no for a business blog. 🙂
When do you think it’s okay to write for free? Or are you completely against it? Tell me about it.
