Let’s make this new year your best year yet! What are you waiting for? Have you been wanting to become a freelance writer but have been too afraid to take the leap? It’s not as hard as you would think to make great money working for yourself while doing what you love for a living.

I know there are a million articles out there giving you hints as to how to become a freelance writer. I also know that there are just as many opportunities to sign up for one program or another to get the step-by-step advice to help you make the leap. But, I don’t know of many places where you can find complete information without paying any money to the advice you need.

Over the years I have shared every bit of information I have gained as I became an independent writer. I began writing this blog in 2012 and if you look at my press page, you can see that I have done fairly well for myself. You can scour this website and get all the information you need to make a living as a freelance writer. Seriously, I have mentioned EVERYTHING I have learned along the way. But, below I am going to share several links to get you started so that you don’t have to search for everything on your own. I would advise that if you want to know more after reading the articles below, type in the keywords: writing, social media, career or marketing into the search bar on the right side of the page and you will find numerous articles to help you continue on.

I hope that sharing this information gives you the boost you need to meet your own goals. Let’s make this New Year your best year yet!
