It Pays to Keep Writing

The needs of freelance writers have increased with the hope that someone out there would "spare them a dime" for their thoughts
and expertise. Many web sites have tried to exceed reasonable  expectations for freelance writers only to end-up folding, leaving many writers feeling unsure about their aspirations. This industry is in need of an outlet that can raise the awareness of the continued support freelance writers need to keep this
prolific genre afloat.

Have you ever wanted to explore a variety of freelance  writing    
genres but did not know where to begin? Have you ever found
freelancing opportunities and the contact person was not
"true-blue"? Are you tired of finding the opportunity, the
right contact people, and remaining penniless? Have your feet
already been wet and your skills tailored for a specific niche
market? Do you want a pathfinder to leave big enough footprints
that will lead you directly to where you want to thrive? Can you
leave all of your "dead-end" writing experiences in the past
and start anew?

Many freelance writers have been left in the cold after several
dot com's geared towards them left them holding the bag. Thus,
they have been in search of a stable outlet that can give them
freedom to express having a major impact on their financial and
professional status.

I found a web site through a Google search that I thought I
should share with my fellow freelance writers. The web site is
http://www.autobyografy.com. At the time of the dot com craze

for freelance writers, I remembered this site being one of the only
ones that was helping independent writers get published.
Honestly, I thought the company went out of business with the
rest of the freelance writer dot coms. However, they are still
here. After visiting the site, I found that they had expanded
their opportunities for writers. The following information is
some of the resources I found on their site:

Writing Jobs - If you are looking for a variety of writing jobs
visit Big Mouth Careers
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Big_Mouth_Careers/Homepage-Next.php
that offers hiring solutions, castings/jobs and career services
for the arts & entertainment industry as well as 30+ traditional
markets.

Poetry Contest - I remember them having this same contest,
Tribute To A Poet Poetry Contest, several years ago, at the time,
I did not win a cash award but I received a nice gift
certificate. The first prize is now $5,000. Visit
http://www.autobyografy.com search keyword(s): poetry contest or
click any Tribute To A Poet link.

eZine - They have an online magazine, ONE e-magazine
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/ONE/Subscriptions/Homepage.php
where freelance writers can get paid up to $60 per article. This
caught my eye, and the magazine itself blew my mind, it is so
creative inside.

Career Starter - I found a talent guide for writers called the
Writer’s Report http://www.autobyografy.com/p/FPRL/Homepage.php
that is like a career starter for those looking to start a career
in writing. It contains step-by-step information on how to get
started in the business, finding agents and managers, handling
and overcoming rejection, putting together a cover letter, resume
or portfolio, do's and don'ts, techniques, understanding
contracts and agreements, how-to's, and writing industry
evaluation.

Newsletters with Opportunities - There are two newsletters for
freelance writers. One is for writers who like to write poems,
Tribute To A Poet Newsletter
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Home/Newsletters.html, and the
other is for writers who want to write for a variety of national
media like magazines, newspapers, greeting cards, and so forth,
The Dime Times Newsletter
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Home/Newsletters.html. Both offer
paid opportunities.

Get Published - Writers can get their manuscripts published into
an eBook and sell via their bookstore, Imist Books
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Fabian_Mall/Homepage.php.
I also noticed that they provide several marketing tools like
featured writer spots, press releases, book reviews,
self-publishing articles, etc.

The Autobyografy site http://www.autobyografy.com offers a whole
lot more for other talents as well like dancers, photographers,
actors, and so forth. Be prepared to browse for a while, the site
is extensive. In addition, they offer a lot of freebies too.
It's all about what you want!

How to Start a Freelance Career

Work at Home and Earn an Excellent Income

Imagine being able to work from your own home, doing a job you love, and getting paid handsomely for doing it. Wouldn't that be great?


Well, the good news is that this is not just a fantasy. It is a prospect that is well within your reach. Today, millions of people worldwide have established highly-successful careers as freelance professionals. Writers, designers, programmers and many other home-based consultants have discovered that freelancing offers the perfect combination of freedom, creativity, flexibility and profitability.

So do you need years of experience and fantastic qualifications to join these lucky people? Not at all. You just need a skill that you can offer to potential clients, and the willingness to learn how to run a home-based business.

Of course, the biggest challenge for new freelancers is finding enough work to justify giving up a day job. How can you be sure that you will keep yourself busy with lucrative work? This used to be a concern, but thanks to the advent of the Internet, things are now much easier.

Now there are a number of job sites dedicated to helping freelancers find work and stay busy. Freelance Work Exchange, for example, brings you hundreds of fresh freelance jobs like these:

Write for Discussion Boards: $1200 per week, plus bonus
A writer is needed for an ongoing writing project. You will need to write copy to stimulate others into joining the discussion board. The writer needs to actively encourage regular and meaningful debate on the relevant discussion board, with some moderating of the content. You must have solid writing skills and good ideas.

Administer a Web Business from Home: $4000 per month
A successful e-commerce venture is seeking a part-time virtual assistant to act as a home-based office manager. You will deal with email correspondence, update site content and deal with general admin issues. You should have your own computer and Internet access.

Transcribe Author's Notes: $80 per hour, flexible working
A publishing company is seeking a freelance with an eye for detail to transcribe authors' notes and recordings for a range of ongoing projects. You must have a good grasp of English, be able to edit content into readable form, and be able to submit work from home by email.
