This week’s feature article in Fab Freelance Writing Ezine was Get Blog Jobs – Fun and Profitable if You Love Blogging | Writing Hacker by Angela Booth.
Here’s a snippet from the article:
“With your own small blog created, itâ€™s time to find blog jobs. Yes, thatâ€™s plural. Most professional bloggers blog for a stable of blogs. Several colleagues blog for ten to 20 blogs. One friend blogs for many businesses. At last count, he was blogging for 30 blogs, and making an extraordinary income.
There are many ways you can find blogs jobs. The most common way is to approach a business which has a Web site, but which doesnâ€™t have a blog, and to propose a blog to them. If youâ€™re new to blogging, you may find this approach a little intimidating, so letâ€™s look at other ways suitable for new bloggers.”
The article offers three ways to get blog jobs; and two of those ways are so easy you’d think that everyone would do it, but they don’t. The challenge is over-thinking.
Here’s a big tip: JUST DO IT!
That tip applies to everything, but especially to writing jobs. Many writers are basically timid and shy folk, and this is fine. However, hiding your abilities gets you nowhere. There are thousands of writing jobs going begging, because writers over-think, instead of just getting on with it, and asking for the job.
Just ask. You’ll be amazed and thrilled at what happens when you do. :-)
