Freelance Writer Appreciation Week is here. Since I’m a freelance blogger and writer; I wanted to share some of my experience with you.
Freelance Writer Appreciation Week
So, you may think you want to be a writer. But, trust me, when I tell you it is hard work. Although writing styles are different for most people; it is sometimes hard to strike that chord to create content that resonates with a lot of people.
Since English was always one of my favorite subjects in school; it is no surprise I transitioned several years ago to being a full-time freelance writer and blogger.
For 24+ years I owned a successful Wholesale Women’s Contemporary Apparel Sales Office. Because fashion has been a part of my life since I was a little girl; it took a lot of thought for me to make this transition. To read more about my transition; be sure to check out Lynne’s Fashion Journey post.
2017 and Beyond
In 2017, I started to get more comfortable with WordPress. So, I decided to change things around and expand my Site to include beauty and lifestyle topics. At the same time, I also began working with a few clients and helped each of them grow their business.
Fast forward – today, I’m still working with many of the same clients.
As I have continued to expand my writing; I published my first book in 2018. Because I love cooking and entertaining, I thought I would write a fun Fall/Holiday cookbook for anyone who loves good food.
After suffering the loss of my Sister, Edie; it took me several years to finish her manuscript. To read more about this book; be sure to visit my Cortship Book Launch post.
And, if you haven’t read this yet; now is the opportunity to enjoy this young adult book that was a labor of love for me and honor in my Sister’s memory.
Freelance Writer Appreciation Week – Where I am Today
Although I have had success with both books and other writing gigs; I am not getting rich. So, you may ask yourself why do I continue to pursue this line of work if it isn’t bringing me the money I was hoping for? Well, the answer is simple; I love what I do.
At the same time, I love creating stories that I hope will interest the people reading them.
In addition to my own Website: I have enjoyed working with most of my clients to help them achieve their goals.
