How to Start Freelance Writing

Have you been thinking of how you can start freelance writing? If so, you have come to the right place. Half the battle when starting out is trying to figure out where to pitch queries to and how to build up a writing portfolio.

I have been freelancing part-time since early 2017, mostly on the travel writing side, but have also had some success in writing a home decor piece and a food related piece.

There is a wealth of information out there on this big world wide web, but I have simplified the process for you in my post Roadmap to Freelance Writing,.

Here I provide tips on the exact steps to take to go from never publishing a single word to obtaining your first article in an online publication.

The truth is that anyone can start freelance writing as a profession at any time.

It does take a lot of hard work to submit pitches, being thoughtful about stories and articles, doing research and interviewing people.

But with all that hard work comes with a sense of accomplishment and fun along the way.

One of the best ways honestly, that has helped me start freelance writing has been starting a blog.

A blog can have many purposes. But it is without a doubt a great freelance writing portfolio showcasing your style, interests and types of articles you are capable of writing.
