IF YOU’RE A FREELANCER, YOU NEED TO READ THIS.
Blogging is KEY to a freelancer’s career. Why? Because it builds your credibility in your field. It won’t make you rich, but it will establish that you know your stuff and get you noticed. You have to be original, consistent and a decent writer. You will get better with practice. Just keep in mind that it takes a year to really establish a blog, so brace yourself if you’re only now starting.
Get up off your butt and write something! It’s the only way you will know if you’re any good, and there is a 50% chance that you’re a lot better than you give yourself credit for. Once you have written something, publish it online and share it with friends who are honest and critical, not friends who will tell you what you want to hear. Feedback is key – it will tell you where you are going wrong, and how to proceed.
