    These are some good suggestions on how to get started. I’ve been thinking about writing for a nonprofit to build a copywriting portfolio. I think I will give it a shot. Just the thought of working for a boss scares me lol. I like the freedom of only answering to myself.

    Hi Barbara, I love that point you make – don’t be boring! I so agree. I think by adding creative images and storytelling one can keep it interesting. Sometimes videos if done right can also be a great asset to a blog post. Thanks for sharing your tips here and encouragement.

    Pretty interesting stats there, especially the percentage of freelancers who make over 100k.

    While i tend to stick to a small pool of topics, I had explored a million of them over the years and learned what works for me. These days i hardly ever write anymore, but the subjects i normally explore are both quite fun and profitable all at once 🙂

    Thanks for posting this!

    Nice piece, Barbara.

    Writing has really changed my life. I started writing as a mere passion but today, I have been able to build it into a full-time business. Like I have always told people, writing is an amazing skill.

    With this anyone can rise to any length he or she.

    I’ve had a period in my life when I was doing freelance article writing. It was nice but the only problem I had was if I stopped writing, I won’t anymore make money. This is the real tax that comes along with freelance work.

    Instead, I thought like why not writing for myself on my blog. And take in chances like affiliate marketing to make money. After a few months, it did pay off. I still can make some money while not writing at the same exact money.

    What I wanted to say is that writing and creating content is a great skill. You should be investing it the perfect way in your own business.

    Thanks a lot for sharing.
    That was a very nice post. Thank you!

      I hear you on that one!
      I’m not a huge fan of active work / active income, so I published a series of books on Kindle / Nook several years ago, which are still providing me with a monthly check.

      Writing for me is fun, but i struggle with keeping a client long-term. I tend to quit them like my life depended on it.

      Long story short: I prefer to create income streams.
