Why You Should Never Stop Looking for Writing Opportunities?

>> Tuesday, August 24, 2010

If you are a newbie or a veteran freelance writer you have probably gotten comfortable with your current writing opportunities. But depending on those websites/clients, particularly if you are depending on one or two writing jobs, as your main income source could hurt you down the road. Sometimes those writing opportunities could easily go away without warning. That's why it's a good idea to be prepared for the worst case scenario just in case you lose one of those income sources. One way to make sure you have a steady flow of income is by working on your residual income. It might take a while to build up but it will be worth it in the end. A few websites that offer residual income that you might want to consider writing for are Hubpages, Bukisa, Triond.

While you are searching for more writing jobs you should always remember to not take on more writing opportunities than you can handle. You should take the time to figure out if you can add more writing jobs so you won't be overwhelmed.

I have recently started looking for more places to write for because I wasn't happy with the articles that were available at Demand Studios and Textbroker. Lately it seems like Demand Studios has some of the weirdest titles that are hard or impossible to research. Because of this I decided to take a leap of faith and applied to two places. I was recently hired by one but haven't heard back from the other. I have also done a little research about the earning potential with websites that offer residual income, such as Bukisa, and I plan to start focusing on that area of writing.

To help you with your writing job search I have included a link to three websites that have a list of writing jobs. The list on each website is updated weekly/daily.

Thanks Lamonica! Great links, I'll check them out later today. Good luck with Bukisa, I joined a month or so ago, but haven't written anything for them yet. I figure it is a good place for those keywords I come across with high searches but low CPC.
