Freelance Writing Opportunities – Blog Writing

Following up with my previous post on finding freelance work from home, I wanted to share about another freelance opportunity. Freelance writing opportunities are in high demand. If you’re a writer, or aspiring writer, then this post is for you. Heck, even if you’re not that great at writing but are knowledgeable in a certain area or niche, then pay close attention.

There are numerous amounts of people that constantly require article writers on a wide variety of subjects. Just go to my previous post, linked above, and sign up with those sites as a service provider. You’ll be able to see firsthand at how many writing jobs are available.

Other freelance writing opportunities, and one that is very similar to the above, is blog writing. The same principal applies, but this time you’re writing an article or blog post for the owner of a blog. There are millions of blogs ran by webmasters, and many webmasters don’t have the time to keep up with their blogs.

The fact is that it’s hard keeping up with a blog, and I should know. ;). It takes time to research a topic and then write about it. It’s very time consuming to keep a blog updated on a consistent basis. And as we all know, Google loves new, fresh content that’s added regularly to sites. This is where you, a freelance blog writer, can help.

Many blog owners would like to keep their blog up to date and provide valuable content to their readers. The problem is that many just don’t have the time due to other interests or obligations. Many blog owners would be willing to hire a blog writer to post content on their blog.

It will take a little effort and time on your part, but if you run across a quality blog that doesn’t get updated very often, or seems to have been neglected, you could simply contact the owner and offer your writing services to them. Many will be so happy that you contacted them that they’ll jump on the idea.

The price you get paid per post for blog writing will vary and has many factors. Some factors include the niche, length of the posts and your writing experience. With a little effort there’s no reason why you can’t find a blog writing job.

So there you have it… two examples of freelance writing opportunities that are available to you. I’m sure with some creativity and strong will, you’ll be able to find other avenues as well.

@John McRae, Hi John, It can really pay off if you enjoy writing, but it does take time.

Hi Alan,

Working from home as a freelance writer is a great idea. I’ve seen people in forums like elance.com, warriorforum etc. who are making a good amount of monthly income doing this business idea.

Thanks for the great info.

@Lian Vaiphei, Hi Lian, sure thing! It’s becoming more and more popular as a way to make money online.

I have often wished that I loved to write more. There is so much money to be had for somebody to write blogs and articles it’s not even funny. Most people just don’t have time to do it for themselves. Keep up the good work Alan, Tim Stokes.

@Affiliate Earning, I was never a writer in my earlier years, but now that I’ve been doing it for a year, it gets easier and more enjoyable. I was just asked to write some blog posts for a client of mine, so it definitely has it’s advantages. I’ve done some paid writing in the past as well, but that’s not my main focus. I’ll do it if asked, but I don’t pursue those types of projects as I’m mainly a proofreader/editor.

@Glass Beads, I guess it depends on the blog owner and how much time can be devoted to the blog. My blog is all original content by me unless otherwise noted. Many, however, just don’t have the time and hire writers to write for them.

I’m not sure what you mean by not being original. It would still be original content. The ideas and content is specific to the needs of the blog owner. No one would be able to tell the difference.

@Alan Mater, ah I thought its a regular pay basis. So with this I think you get lots of money with your articles, right?

@Glass Beads, It’s a one-time payment per article, so if you write a lot of articles on a regular basis, then yes, you can earn a good amount.
