Setting up a portfolio with Wordpress is a bit complex, but I’ve got you. This tutorial will take you through the steps needed to quickly set up a portfolio website to showcase your work.
Business owners and marketing professionals receive tons of solicitations from freelancers every day. They’re often complete spam-- it’s obvious the sender blasted the same letter to a bunch of people, maybe after changing one or two sentences. When you actually take the time to write a thoughtful and personalized pitch, the results can be astounding.
I think there isn’t a better career for people who love to travel. You don’t need a fancy laptop or a super fast internet connection. The work is done solo, so you don’t usually need to have a bunch of calls and meetings to collaborate with other people. The projects are fairly-straightforward, self-contained, and low-stress. The pay can be great for writing careers, too.
Looking for work within your personal and business networks is a good place to start, because you already have worked hard to develop these connections. You might be surprised to find that someone you would never have thought of asking has a connection or opportunity that could help you get your first freelance writing gigs.
