Freelance Writing:
A Pot Half Full Is Also A Pot Half Empty

One thing I always emphasize to writers who are just starting out is that websites written on a "to do" list is not effective. It is important to have more than one - preferably five or six - content sites where you can always find work. Sign up at each site, and be cavalier about the other sites where you are a writer (if they ask).

To assist you in locating sites that need content writers, check the list in the next column where I place five sites each month with live links to writer guidelines. Read those guidelines to decide if that site is right for you. You will know when you read their rules.

Seek variety to keep your writing fresh. The list will give you websites in three areas: general interest, blogging and magazines. If you fail to find something, you are not really looking or you aren't asking the right questions of yourself or a site representative.
