Announcing the 30-Day Cold Pitching Challenge

I’ve been a freelance writer for about a decade now, and I’ve been teaching people how to make a living writing for about eight years. While I’ve achieved quite a bit within this period, one of the achievements I am most proud of is the success of the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge that I launched four years ago. The goal of the challenge was simple: I’ll act as a beginner in an entirely different niche, with a pseudonym and without using my network or existing resources...

The Writers' Co-op is a great new podcast about how to make your freelance writing career work

I've worked with Jenni Gritters at several media companies now, including Upworthy and Wirecutter, and I have no qualms saying that she is probably the best editor I've ever worked with. As such, I can't say I was surprised when I learned that she pulled in $120,000 in her first year as a full-time freelancer. Jenni is certainly a hustler, but she's a gracious soul who's eager to share advice and help others to succeed as well (even if that means setting timers for me to indulge my weird ADHD re...

One Health Advantage of Work Autonomy and Control May be Less Risk of Dying

Independent workers (freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors, etc.) consistently report a major benefit of being independent is the work flexibility, autonomy, and control it provides. It turns out having work flexibility, autonomy, and control may also mean you are at less risk of dying. According to a recent study published in the Journal of Psychology, limited work autonomy and control can lead to mental health problems and an increased risk of death. And while the study didn't ...

Finding Indic-ism

We Indians, yes including millennials, are being raised, educated & cultivated predominantly under the ‘socialist-secular’ system. After higher education & employment, we go on to the next level & get ourselves exposed to the ‘free-market-liberal-capitalist’ system. Along the way, some of us get romantically entangled into the ‘Marxist-communist-Naxal’ mindset with leanings towards everything as long as it is Anti-this&that. This pretty much is the distribution of our thought & mindset. Car...

5 Science-backed Ways to Write an Attention-keeping Introduction

By Waliyulah Olayide Imagine you opened a shopping mall. The name and popularity of your mall have attracted potential buyers. Entering your mall, you knew a visiting prospect would be persuaded to buy a thing or two. Alas, your entrance is waterlogged with the rain that fell the other day! What will a potential buyer do?

Tips To Help Freelancers Concentrate

For people who love to travel, getting degrees in higher education like masters in school counseling, criminal justice, or something else, picking when you want to work is really important. Sometimes, you just won’t be able to sit in an office all day, five days a week. On the other hand, freelancing from home can be a little difficult. Co...

5 Ways Freelance Writers Can Survive in the Age of COVID-19

While there has been a general lack of data on the impact of COVID-19 for writers, it is clear that freelance writers have been seriously affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
