19 Online Communities to Find Freelance Writing Jobs

19 Online Communities to Find Freelance Writing Jobs

August 5, 2011 by

There are many opportunities right now to earn money doing freelancing writing jobs, if anything to supplement the freelance work you are doing at the moment. I know how hard it is right at this moment to get regular clients and regular income, but if you have a knack with writing, you could make some nice earnings to fill in any gaps.

The great thing about working as a writer is that you can do it at a time that suits you, so that it complements anything else you are working on. There is currently a big need for quality written content, especially on the web, and you can take advantage of that need.

A fruitful place to find writing jobs that can provide some extra (or a lot) cash is online freelance job communities.

    Very useful post, bookmarked! I want say that making money as part of other blogs,didn’t make me any good money,and I was always submitting my own virgin articles. If it about job and not just to blogging and may some ads with revenue, I think the most serious is to take look for offers to be paid per articles or review. There are some opportunities that can make you generate whole salary, I talked about it in my blog http://gooblogle.blogspot.com/2012/10/get-paid-now-with-real-writing-job.html, but of course like every offline job, you need to take it seriously and write good and useful articles. There are a lot of Pros and I enjoy it.
