Freelance writing is something I never knew I would end up doing. I always thought of myself becoming a banker or a pilot in life. I scored very high grades in languages at school, which are, English, Swahili and French (Yes, I studied French and no wonder my Facebook name, ‘je m’appelle mercy’). Still, I could not consider a career in writing regardless of the scores.
I discovered what my passion was. Something I had never realized before! I had it since when I was in primary school!
Ever since I got into the freelance writing world, I have never turned back. I love freelance writing. It’s such a beautiful career.
Being a freelance writer is better for me than working in a company.
There are so many wonderful benefits to being a freelance writer for hire that I never considered.
1. I am my own boss
With freelance writing, you decide what you want to do. You have total control over your schedule, and you can set your terms and conditions that are comfortable for you and your client. If you decide to complete a client’s task at a given time, (of course before the client’s deadline) that’s what you will do without anybody pressuring you.
You will have no explanations to make to a boss.
2. I decide what I want to earn
The good thing about freelance writing is that you can work as much or as little as you want. It determines what you earn.
A freelance writer who knows what he or she is doing will find clients who are prepared to pay good money. It’s a two-way street. Nobody loses.
Will you work for $20 per every 500 words or will you work for $70 per every 500 words?
Do you want to make $100 per month or $500 per month? Do you need $1000 per month or $3000 per month? A freelance writer decides on his or her earning depending on their financial goals.
Probably, the more you work, the more you earn
3. I can work from anywhere I want
Do you want to travel to the United States but you’re unable because your boss won’t allow you? Or do you want to travel to Kenya, Canada, or Peru? Well, with online freelance writing, you can work from anywhere you want.
Come on! You are your own boss. Remember? You are free to go wherever you want to go, as long as you work and submit your clients’ assignments on time.
You can also work from the comfort of your home, from your hotel room, or just whichever place you want. Most professions will require you to work from a specific location, but not freelance writing.
4. I can write in different categories
Freelance writing needs a lot of research. Most freelance writers can write in different categories. At one time you might find yourself writing on finance, at another time you might be writing on travel and on another day you might find yourself writing on beauty. The research you perform online gives you a lot of information that you probably have not heard before.
You will even be lucky to discover a lot of stuff that you did not know about yourself!
5. It’s the most secure job for me
It’s you to decide when you want to quit freelance writing. The better you are at writing, the more clients you get.
Being a freelance writer takes a lot of self-discipline. You have to be willing to work, learn and grow. Your success as a freelance writer depends on the quality of your work.
