Warning: This post is a rant. I, and several colleagues, have been targeted in an ill-conceived blog outreach campaign by Elance, to promote its new Upwork brand (replacing oDesk).

The latest All Indie Writers Podcast episode is a writer Q&A special. In it I tackle four community members' questions covering:

- The viability of a writing career in freelance poetry;
- Tips to help you attract leads from your freelance website;
- Whether or not content mill samples are an impressive portfolio option for a technical writer;
- How to approach offers to buy text link advertisements on your blog.

Thank you to Anne Wayman, Ashley Flemming, Andy VanSlyke, and one anonymous reader we'll call "J" for submitting questions for this episode.
