There’s been some restructuring in how I operate my several businesses. I have my freelance business, and I used to operate that solely out of my kryshathayer.com site. However, that is now my creative writing site and this is where everything freelance will be. You will see posts here about freelance in general and about projects and things that I’m working on.
If you have any questions you would like to see me answer here, please feel free to contact me through the Contact page or leave a comment on any post and I would be happy to answer you with a post of my own. I will let you know when it is posted so you can read the answer to your question(s).
There will always be more work to do when you’re a freelance writer and time management is important. As a freelance writer, the amount of money you make depends on how much you can get done in the time you have available to do it in. It’s important that you make the most of that time with time management skills. Some are born organizers that can plan their day’s work, get it done, and continue on to even better things. However, most of us aren’t and we need a little bit of help when it comes to managing our to-do lists.
A beginner, even someone who has been around the freelancing world for a little while, may be surprised to find many different types of freelance writing sites online. On some sites, you post your article and get paid for each click. Others pay you based on the money made by the advertising placed on it. Some sites pay you outright for the rights to your article and pay by the word or per piece. Still others allow you to submit a proposal for a job or project that was listed by a client. The client can choose the writer that he or she would like to complete the job based on sample work provided or details of the proposal. This includes the price or time frame needed to complete the work.
Here are details and examples of each type of freelance writing site. I hope you enjoy exploring them as much as I have enjoyed learning about them or writing for and through them!
