A New Start For a Freelance Writer
I have a little announcement…
Websites that is.
(I move around a lot so it wouldn’t exactly be news if I were physically moving.)
So what does this have to do with you, I hear you cry?
Well, if you’re a freelance writer you’ll perhaps be pleased to learn that I am now the founder and proud owner of a website dedicated to making you a better freelance writer.
The current site that you’re feasting your weary eyes on right now will remain intact as a place for future writing clients to get in touch with me. But for all you freelance writers I’ve got something a bit special.
I feel like as a community we’re growing out of this blog so while I’ve transferred all the existing blog posts over to the new site, it will also offer so much more.
What’s new then?
I’ll be covering how to market yourself better, how to become a better writer, plus how to keep on top of everything that the freelancing life throws at you.
I’ll also be revealing all the tools and resources I use to make my life as a freelance writer easier, more productive and therefore more lucrative. I’m not saying I’m the oracle on this but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve!
If you’re looking for work (and if you’re smart you’ll always be looking for work – even when you have lots), then I’ll even be scouring the web for freelance writing jobs online and listing them for you.
My aim is to save you time so you can focus on becoming a better freelance writer.
So it’s a busy time for me, what with my travel blogging eBook launching soon, but I’m working day and night to get the website up and running as soon as possible.
Of course I’d love it if you came with me. If you haven’t already, please sign up to get weekly emails from me – the aim is that these are going to get more useful, more practical and really help you to become a better freelance writer.
If you’re wondering where the link to the new site is…well, it’s www.freelancewritersonline.com
While it’s tough to start again with a blank canvas I’m really looking forward to the challenge and to making it the best site it can be. I’m focused on the future, on improving as a freelance writer and on helping others to do the same.
This is my mission. It’s always been there in the back of my mind but I feel like I’ve found a focus for it now.
Sometimes the hardest thing is taking the first step of turning your thoughts and ideas into actions and outcomes.
So I’ll be busy with the new site this week (not too busy to fit in a few days in the south of France – I love being a freelancer!), so I’ll simply leave you with this thought:
“There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.”
- Louis L’Amour
Here’s to my new beginning. What about you? Have you ever started all over again from scratch? Any advice?
