Lately I have been looking for more ways to make a little extra money without having to take on a part time job. Money is tight for just about everyone right now and we could all benefit from an additional source of income no matter how small.
Money from Freelance Writing Opportunities
I have begun working as an online freelance writer for various companies who connect authors with clients needing written works. At first I was just trying it out and only wrote about once a week, but now I try to write almost every day. It has been paying off pretty well, especially whenever I get in my groove and the words flow quickly. I have truly been enjoying it, so I thought it would only be fair to share this with you.
I want every parent to have a chance at staying home with their baby if that is what they desire. I understand how that feels and I believe that resigning from my great career to care for my baby was the right decision for me. It has been difficult at times but finding flexible work-from-home type of jobs has helped us greatly.
If you enjoy writing and do reasonably well at it, then I think you will have a good time making some extra cash in the comfort of your own home through freelance writing gigs. Currently, I am working with Text Broker the most and find their business model most conducive for me.
Writing for Text Broker
When you sign up with Text Broker, they grade your first work to establish the quality of your writing. Once you have been accepted, you will be able to choose any article you want to write about as long as it is at or below your established writing level. Text Broker pays per word and the higher your writing level, the more you will get paid. You don’t have a minimum number of articles to write and you don’t have to write anything that you don’t like. Plus, you can cash out every week if you have $10 or more in your account.
Writing for Freelancer Careers
Freelancer Careers is another good freelance writing company that lets you choose the articles you write and how many. I haven’t worked with them for long so I do not have as much experience. They base the pay on the quality of your work but also give better pay for articles with short deadlines, unlike Text Broker. I may end up writing for them more in the near future as I adjust to their flow of business.
Other Helpful Tips
Occasionally I enjoy stopping by Freelance Writing Jobs, a freelance writer’s blog, for helpful tips and encouragement.
I have visited several freelance websites that do not specifically say you get to choose what you write about and I never sign up with those companies. Some have a specific number of articles you must write per week and do not let you pick which ones you write about.
Be cautious concerning which companies receive your personal information and be sure you agree before “signing” their terms of service.
Enjoy your work and take pride in your accomplishments!
