I know that many freelance writers have had great success marketing articles through various websites, but I just don’t know anything about it. So, I asked Genesis Davies from At Home Mom Blog if she’d be willing to teach us and our readers through a guest post. After reading what she wrote, I’m a little embarrassed [...]
Okay, we admit it. We freaked out a little bit in April. When we started the month, we had no jobs lined up, we weren’t getting any responses on our bids, and, as Lorna hinted, we were (and still are) battling a client who owes us over $3,000 and has since fallen off the radar. [...]
Everyone’s Talking, but No One’s Saying Anything There is absolutely TONS of talk on the blogs about how to set your freelance rates. You will probably notice, however, that while everyone talks about how to set your rates, no one tells you what they actually charge. There are a couple of reasons for that, in [...]
ETA: For those who want to do a little comparison, scroll down to the bottom of this post where I’ve listed links to all of the previous freelance income reports we’ve posted thus far.

One of my favorite books about writing is Betsy Lerner’s The Forest for the Trees: An Editor’s Advice to Writers. (My favorite is Stephen King’s On Writing, not that you asked.) Anyway, one of the reasons I like the book so well is because the author, who is an editor, totally “gets” how insecure writers [...]
As promised, I’m back on track in 2009 with a much more detailed and up-to-date financial report. And the numbers are a little different than what I was expecting (which probably makes it a good thing to do this). Overall, Lorna and I feel like we have never been more busy than we have been [...]
Last year, Tamara wrote a post here called “No Spec, No Problem” about clients who ask you to work “on spec.” For those of you new to the game, that means that the potential client will basically give you an assignment, and if he or she thinks it’s up to par, you will be rewarded. [...]
Now that election season has officially drawn to a close here in the U.S, it’s time for us to also bring an end to our ongoing debate with Men with Pens. We have a few more things to say on the subject, and since we called them out, it seems only appropriate to offer them [...]
