Right now my twins are in their cribs sleeping for the night and I’m in my office updating my blog.
I’m able to dedicate 1-2 hours after they sleep to work on building my brand as a freelance writer. Being a mom to two year old twins while trying to make it as a freelance writer is no easy feat.
In Part 2 of my blog series, Getting the Job Done, you learned how important it is to manage your projects to avoid losing a client. You also learned what online communication terms are considered poor netiquette.
In my last post, I talked about some of the things a new freelance writer needs to have to get the job done. One tip I mentioned in that post was in order to be a successful freelance writer you also need to be a successful project manager.
Are you a new freelance writer? If so, do you think:
- I can work anywhere and anytime I want. Yeah I can be my own BOSS!
- I can create my own schedule and choose the job that’s right for me. No more dreading the daily grind!
- I will ultimately get paid for doing what I love the most: writing. I can get rich!
All this can be true and more when you are a freelance writer, but don’t let these awesome perks become the death of your career.
If you are a freelance writer like me, than you know how difficult it can be to come up with original and captivating, yet quality driven blog posts or articles. That doesn’t mean, though, you only have to write low-quality web content.
