Blogging has helped me find my voice and write from my heart.
Before I began blogging I never felt as if I had something that I was truly good at. Writing daily has become a vital part of my life now. The compliments I receive from readers truly fuel my passion for writing and help me realize I have finally found that something I was always looking for.
So with all that said, my strength is also my weakness.
I can write until my fingers are about to fall off but I have yet to find any freelance opportunities despite my efforts.
Four children ago, before everything revolved around the internet, I did an extensive amount of writing.
Today, no one is interested in writing samples that are Word attachments and Power Point presentations so that leaves me with my current body of work, my blog. My writing here tends to be very personal so, unless Hallmark plans to stop by, I feel like I am out of the freelance loop.
I need diversity in my writing, I need to make a name for myself in the freelance world and most importantly, I need someone to give me a chance writing online content.
So this is the area that I would like to improve upon.
Do you have ideas? Are there any sites I should try for getting my feet wet in freelance writing? What do I need to do to become competitive in the freelance writing arena?
