I’ve decided that my intros aren’t all that good when the jobs aren’t that good. I’ll let you determine how things are doing today based on how entertaining this is. Well! Time for the freelance writing jobs.
Freelance Writing Job Tip of the Week
What to do when the well’s gone dry? I find that when things are really slow, I’ll hit up an old client and check in with them. I don’t make it blatantly obvious that I’m looking for work, but I do ask how things are going with them and if they were happy with how things went. Sometimes, I have gotten referrals this way and on occasion I have even gotten work just based on asking. Amazing how sometimes clients will forget that they have something important to do just sitting on their desks.
Worst Freelance WritingJobPosting of the Week
Usually I pick on the job posters. This week, I’m going to turn the tables and point out a particularly goofy article posted by a New York woman.
$800 female writer seeks insparing sanctuary
I am a 45 year old NYC professional, (creative director for an Aerial performance company)
taking time off to teach yoga and write a book.
I prefer to live alone, but accept a quiet, clean room mate, not in need of too much social interaction.
I am extremely clean, conscientious, and quiet. I don’t smoke, and never get past one glass of wine in an evening.
I require sunlight, non-street-side windows, and close proximity to transportation to midtown.
Be sure next time that if any of you choose to identify yourself as a writer that you proofread the hell out of your article. I’m not sure if I can quite figure out why she capitalized aerial or why she didn’t put roommate together as one word like it should be. I’m concerned that she needs sunlight, as she may be part plant. And I’m deeply worried about a professional writer who misspells the hell out of the terminspiring.Caution, all you Craigslist writers. I see your dating profiles, your roommate pleas, and your equipment for sale when I search for jobs. Stop being embarrassing!
