The other day I was reading a questionnaire that I had filled out for someone a long time ago. Under the question, Do you have any regrets?, I had answered that career-wise I wish that I had tried to be a freelance writer of some kind. I remember writing a short weekly column in our local paper for the church page, nothing big or paid but even that had to be put aside as family and work took up more of my time and creativity.
Well I am happy to say now that I am a freelance writer! I have found several websites that will pay for blog posts and articles. It takes a ton of searching online but I am collecting a nice little folder of reputable places that have built my empty paypal account up to a three-figure number!!
Today I found a place that will pay me $25 for a 500 word essay or I could enter their contest for a 1,000 word essay and win $500! I can do this and I am doing this. I am a freelancer.
