For this week, I thought I’d switch it up and present my readers with a round-up post of some of my favorite blog posts from other freelance writers and bloggers.
The few blogs I do go to are mostly freelance writing blogs or blogs about blogging. So, I thought I’d share 8 of my favorite posts that I’ve read recently to help you out in your career.
I’ll break up my post into two sections: blog posts about freelance writing and blog posts about blogging. I feel it’s always a good idea for freelance writers to read posts on blogging as this is one of the main forms of writing freelance writers take on.
So, let’s get started.
