Hi there, and thanks for visiting the Freelance Writer’s Guide! My name is Delany, and I can most commonly be found writing under the name “ThatWordChick” on various freelancing sites around the web. I started this site as a how-to for friends and family interested in doing what I do, and it grew (and grew) from there! I have been freelancing for a little over ten years now, and I started with little more than an unformed idea of what I wanted to “be when I grew up” and a Mark Twain quote:
“Write without pay until someone offers pay. If nobody offers within three years, the candidate may look upon this as a sign that sawing wood is what he was intended for.”
My aim with the Freelance Writer’s Guide is to give those interested or just starting in the world of freelance writing for money a little direction for reputable sites to try and potential scams or less-than-honest sites to avoid. It’s a big, wide web out there, and trying to find one’s way without guidance is intimidating at best.
If you have questions about a particular site or freelance issue, I welcome you to get in touch with me in the comments below. I’m always happy to add blog entries for my readers!
Yours in ink;
