I’ve been researching ways to monetize your blog, in preparation for an Ask the Experts panel at Business BlogHer this week in NYC. And I’m discovering all these websites and lists where writers can find additional freelance work. Check out Anne Wayman’s AboutFreelanceWriting.com blog where there are 53 jobs posted.
I have my plate full, writing for The Blog Squad and Customized Newsletters, but if it wasn’t, boy, I’d sure send some emails out. Some of these writing gigs pay peanuts, but if you’re creative and a fast writer, you could have a ball. Think of all the learning you’d have while researching, for example.
There are ads on Craig’s list for bloggers to write for Hilary Clinton, the Dodgers and Angels, financial services, business plans, fiction and non-fiction books, and for nanny, mom and working mom blogs.
I see full or part-time blog writers having more work in the future, as companies and professionals wake up to the power of blogs and realize that they do take time to write and manage.
The Internet is truly making it easier for writers to make a living.
