  3. Thank you for posting this! I read your blog yesterday and I was wondering! I appreciate you sharing this information!

  4. Thank you for sharing! Great tips!

  5. This is fabulous, thank you. I was thinking of asking you the other day where you got freelance jobs and then I forgot! I have a regular business resume but I need to write a writing resume. I'd love to hear your suggestions on that!

    Thanks fir the tips! I did some freelance writing several years ago but it's a good idea to do as a side job if I need some extra $$. I've heard elance is great to use.

  7. Thank you so much for these tips, I am def interested in freelance writing and I would have had NO idea where to even begin looking.

    fabulous! i was very curious, so thanks for sharing. i have lofty dreams of writing a book one day but i really dont think i am a good writer, and i have no idea where to start, so i'll just follow along as you rocket to stardom, lol 🙂

  11. thanks for the tips! this is something i'd love to look into!

  12. So, I think we've talked about this. I tried Elance for freelance editing, and it was the WORST. At least 10 of my editor friends tried it too and had a similar result. It sounds like it's better for writing than editing, but people will work for insanely cheap, so no one was hiring anyone who bid over like $3/hr. Um, no. I'm glad you're having success with it, though! It is a great concept, and the couple of jobs I did get went really smoothly.

  13. This is such great advice, Chelsea! I haven't dove into the world of freelancing but it sounds totally enticing 🙂

  14. I'll have to look into this, I've been wanting to make a little extra honeymoon money.

  25. Thanks so much for the advice! I'm definitely going to check out elance. Do you have suggestions on how to put together a resume for freelance writing? Especially for those of us just starting out.

  26. Crystal says:

    I've been wanting to look into freelance writing and now that I've taken a new job that I'm much happier in, but took a big pay cut for (totally worth it, though) I'm really serious about finding freelance writing jobs. So thank you for this post! I've actually looked at Elance but I always like hearing from people who have used a resource to see what they have to say so this was very helpful and informative!

  27. I've always wondered about this because we get a handful of emails asking about freelance writing for our site.. but we never had anything set up for that. We asked one of the writers what they did and how they made money because we were curious, but we got a really vague answer. Good to know! 🙂 And the thank you email is good for any job.. or handwritten note.. even better!

  28. Ive always wanted to hop on the Elance boat but haven't yet. I'll def be using your tips when I finally get to applying!
