The Three Most Important Steps You Can Take to Get Started as a Freelance Writer - Bamidele Onibalusi (WritersInCharge)

There’s just so much information out there – blogs, books, courses being pitched right and left, experts and teachers – that eventually cripples you and prevents you from doing what really matters; getting started.

You’re just so excited and passionate about getting started right that you can’t stop yourself from looking for the very best information.

Before you know it, you’re overwhelmed with so much information you don’t know what to do.

Expert A says “do this”, and expert B says “this is the best” and, then there’s confusion.

Exactly what is essential?

About this community

Welcome to the Freelance Writing community! This community’s mission is to help freelance writers be more successful. We welcome all freelance writers, from beginners to experts. The Ground Rules 1. All posts must pertain to the mission of the community. 2. Understand our definition of freelance writer: an independent contractor who seeks paying work writing nonfiction for a business or nonprofit. 3. No posts about poetry or fiction or book writing/publishing. There are plenty of other communities for that. 4. You can link to your own posts, but be sure you provide solid explanation of what the post is about and indicate why it is relevant to freelance writers. Any posts that are not relevant to helping freelance writers create a successful business will be removed from the community. 5. Job postings can only be for gigs that earn freelance writers at least $10 per hour. Yes, that may occasionally include content mills, but we encourage all freelance writers to leave content mills and other low-paying clients and move on to high-paying clients. 6. Debate and exploration of different views is encouraged, but always be polite and respectful.

Working as a freelancer can be challenging. Although there are obvious perks—like working from anywhere and managing your own schedule—even the best freelancers may feel their creative wells run dry as they continuously pump out attention-grabbing content for a crowded web. The good news is that content creation just got easier for freelancers everywhere. Visme, a …

I've been asked so many times how I started freelancing. Since I started a year ago I've gone from about 10 hours a week to 40, being able to work full time from home with a decent income. Freelancing was convenient as a college student, helped me build my portfolio quickly and I never looked back once I found the potential it gave me. Here's my story on how I got started and how you can too. http://www.taylormanningcreative.com/become-a-freelancer/
How I started making $25 an hour as a freelancer on UpWork and how you can do the same thing in under a year when you become a freelancer yourself.

Awesome! I was a journalism and Advertising major and did the same. Freelance was the perfect way to get as much work as I needed while I was in school. Even working work study for the school, I couldn't find a schedule that was flexible enough.

The Book Every Freelancer Needs to Read

There's a lot of books out there which claim to help freelance writers increase their income.

 There's pretty much always something of value to be found in these books, however, it's no surprise that some are going to be more useful than others.

 For the fourth book in the #OBEW series I decided to read a book which is widely lauded as one of the best books on freelancing out there, Peter Bowerman's _ The Well Fed Writer_.

 This isn't a book on how to improve your writing but outlines in detail how to build a better freelance business. It is, in my opinion, an absollute must read for anyone who has chosen a freelance career regardless of discipline.

 Check out the full review below and let us know how this book has affected your freelancing.
