A Guide to Freelancing
North x East has a great article up that is a Comprehensive Guide to Starting your Freelancing Career. It covers everything from branding, to where to find work, advice on quoting prices and invoicing (and more).
More and more bloggers are using their blogging as a launching pad for a freelancing career in writing – I’m sure this will be helpful for those just starting out.
Why Commenting is a Good Practice
Chris Garrett has also put together a good post today and gives 10 reasons why commenting on other people’s blogs is good for you. The benefits of being a regular contributer to other’s blogs in their comment section go beyond that they might click on your name and discover your blog.
I personally find that many of my best ideas come to me during a comment on someone else’s blog which then turns into a post on my own.
Ian from Ian’s Messy Desk has put together his Blogging Toolkit? having bounced off my question about the blog tools you use. While I don’t have the time to do a fully fledged group writing project this week if it’s a topic that is appropriate for your blog feel free to write up a post and leave a link in the comments of my previous post so the rest of us can check out what you use and why.
The list of tools people are submitting is turning out to be a great conversation already and I’ll be sending quite a few people to it in the coming month – thanks everyone!
