So…you want to become a freelance writer. The first thing you need to do is forgetanything and everything anyone has ever told you about freelance writing. The reason Isay this is because you probably have some preconceived notions about what freelancewriting is all about.We’re in a new internet age and some of the old rules, while they still apply, have beenupdated and you must update your mind along with them.As you read this book you’ll find that my preferred method of earning money as afreelance writer is the online method. 100% of my income is derived from money I earnonline as a freelance writer.This is not to say that you cannot earn a healthy income from off line publications, it’s just that prefer the ease and immediacy of online writing. So, there is a bias in this bookand I freely admit that.This book is written to provide lay of the land for new writers and offer much neededmotivation. This is not a book on search engine optimization, choosing keywords or howto rank high in the Google search engine placement. This book is for new freelancewriters who are just starting out and wondering what to do next.
