Like many freelance writers, I sort of stumbled onto this career path: I’d be lying like a madman if I said there weren’t some bumps in the road before I finally figured out how to make it work.
While there were certainly some good resources for freelance writers out there when I was just starting out, it was a far cry from what’s available at your fingertips today.
Flashback to 2011. Communities such as Facebook, YouTube and Reddit were somewhat in their infant stages for professionals. The writing community at large was dominated by content mills and bidding sites paying a pittance for articles. Competition was fierce and freelance writing resources specifically tailored for newbies were often scarce and vague.
Fast forward to present day, where the amount of information out there for newbie freelancers is rather overwhelming.
