Every week I get emails from people asking me how they can get paid to write online. Perhaps the name of the site has something to do with that. After all, I do promise to offer advice on building a successful freelance writing career. And it may be that with 650+ posts on the site spanning five years, some people get lost and don’t know where to begin.
With that in mind, I plan to create an occasional post, aimed at collecting the site’s best advice on different topics (like the promotion one I did last year). The listing won’t be exhaustive, but it will cover some of the key issues which writers face. This first collection is aimed at new writers:
