After writing for my own and other blogs for several years now, I decided to try looking for paid freelance writing work.
After a successful first month I'm ready to continue looking and explore more options in freelance writing as a source of income.
My first port of call has been People Per Hour, where I have found several writing jobs already. Using this site and applying for many different types of writing jobs there has helped me realise how much writing experience I now have thanks to my time blogging.
Articles - I have written on both mine and other blogs about a variety of topics.
Copy writing or product descriptions - thanks to my sponsors I've done plenty of this. I've written several book reviews and have written my own copy and product descriptions for items I have for sale in my madeit shop.
Editing and proofreading - I do this for my own work all the time and have also edited and proofread other people's work for various guest posts I've published on my own blog.
Once I started to look at my writing experience and built up a portfolio of examples of my work, applying for jobs became easier and I felt confident in my experience and abilities as a writer.
I will continue to post about my progress finding Freelance writing work, and share what I learn!
