Be a More Productive Blogger

Almost all freelance writers that I’ve encountered have their own blogs, blog on other blogs, or blog for clients.

Implementing, Maintaining and Tweaking an Organized Archival System

All business owners can suffer through disorganized files and lacking archives, but freelance writers seem to create more papers / files / electronic documents than some would imagine possible.  It’s the general nature of the work. Writers tend to keep and research a lot of things. A solid archival system of frequently backed up files is essential for any freelance writing business owner for the … read more
