Since Rebecca recently ventured to the world of self-employment as a social media consultant, we’ve talked a lot about blogging as a professional gig. At a recent interview she had with 24 Hrs (the newspaper) I reminded Rebecca of a post she wrote and that I really liked on the value of blog posts, where she touched on this very issue. As of right now, I have been offered some freelance gigs, but I have got no clue as to pricing strategies, content delivery, format, etc. So, I’ve been learning a lot from Rebecca’s and other’s experiences.
Michael Kwan is a freelance writer himself, and he always maintains a good, streaming flow of blog posts in addition to his own freelance writing gigs. How does he do it? I always have wondered. I guess it comes with the responsibility of knowing that you NEED to be ready, and he often also writes about self-discipline. I hope I can be THAT disciplined should I ever go the freelance route!
Have you had any experiences in freelancing? What would be the best freelance tips you could provide? Thanks!
