Freelance Writing Tips: Everything (Almost) You Need To Know

Freelance Writing Tips There are not enough freelance writers. Seriously. Whenever I come up with a freelance writing based topic, I  mention that it's extremely competitive. If there's a writing gig on a freelance writing marketplace such as (formerly,, or elsewhere then there will be a ton of applicants --- even if it's just a micro-project. Today I have a perspective that contradicts the statement "freelance writing is extremely competitive". Over the past many months I have successfully failed to hire an affordable writer for this very blog --- no, It's not that I am going to make my blog multi-authored ---  I just happen to want to write and publish blog posts in a consistent way. You might already have noticed that neither do I write regularly nor do I focus on a single topic. I only write about things that I find interesting at that point of time. Therefore I don't have any plans to hire an army of content writers to publish 100s of blog posts a month --- like the Mashables and BuzzFeeds of the world are doing. I was just looking for someone --- preferably a contributor or an editor --- who could help me finish a blog post much faster. Because now I take several days to finish an in-depth or lengthy blog post (like this one). So I thought I could outsource the "writing" process and focus only on research and editing by myself --- to save a lot of my time and effort. And you know what happened? It never worked --- at least for me!

If you have been following my freelance topics then you probably know that I'm not a freelance writer myself --- but I wish I were one. However, as you can see I can write for myself but definitely not the way someone wants me to. And yet, I got a ton of writing opportunities in the past --- by way of guest blogging, SEO writing, web content, etc. and I was forced to deny all of it. :(

So what's the point?

Simple! You don't have to be a native English speaker or a best selling author to make money writing.

If you can write, then money can be made. Absolutely!

But no, that doesn't really mean that you can become a six-figure writer in few months/years just because you know how to write few sentences. It doesn't work that way at all!

The real questions are... Can you write quality content? Can you write content that meets the criteria or guidelines set by your client? Can you write error free (both grammatically and technically) content? If your answer is 'Yes' to all the above questions then you can become a successful freelance writer. Guaranteed!

Write Today; Monetize Tomorrow!

If you have just one reader and your blog changes their life your blog is big enough. — Darren Rowse A blog post by Jim Connolly inspired me to write this very blog post. In that blog post he mentioned about a best selling Kickstarter book written by the awesomest Seth Godin. When people said it took Seth 3 hours to write that book Seth said it took him around 8 years. Yes!
That’s how long it took him, writing blog posts almost every day, to build a big enough community to reach his Kickstarter target in 3 hours.
You know what? It applies to blogging as well.

51 Blogging And Publishing Platforms To Showcase Your Awesomeness

Blogging & Publishing Platforms I first started creating web pages on Yahoo GeoCities, Tripod, etc. back in early 2000s. It was fun. Later, I tried blogging platforms like and and also started creating HTML web pages without any coding skills (thanks to Microsoft FrontPage). And that's how I started web development. Now with the advent of web 2.0 people want more. People no longer like static HTML web pages with dull designs. They want rich features with a great user experience. That's how blogging platforms became massively popular. I get a lot of emails (because of this Make Money Writing blog post) from my readers asking for a platform to share their articles or work online. And I used to recommend a blog -- a WordPress blog to be more specific. But then I realized that a blog may not be relevant for everyone as things changes from one person to another. If you're a technology enthusiast then starting a blog makes sense. But if you're a writer and want to contribute articles randomly, then publishing on makes better sense -- yeah,  you don't have to be a tech-savvy person for that!
