Last week, I wrote a post describing three reasons why it’s easier blogging for others. One of these reasons is that you are given a better sense of direction. When I am given a product to review for a website, it’s pretty obvious what I need to do. I need to test out the product and then write a comprehensive review, following the guidelines given to me by the client. That makes sense.
While some of you may already know where I do most of my freelance writing work, many of you may not be quite as familiar. To give you a better sense of what I do each day, I have decided to highlight a few articles that I have written in the last little while. As you can tell, I specialize mostly in technology, the Internet, and related industries, but I do expand beyond these realms from time to time.
Over at Mobile Magazine, I blog about mobile technology every weekday, producing anywhere between 8 and 15 articles a day. An example of a recent post would be this one about the Asus Eee PC 900. They say that this successor to the current Eee PC will have a touchscreen and a multi-touch trackpad.
I currently act as the site editor for two sections of LoveToKnow, including LoveToKnow Video Games. A group editor decides on the topics for each month. One of my most recent pieces was a review of the Wii Zapper. They have some rather specific SEO strategies in place at LTK and they seem to be working.
Every Tuesday on the BlueFur Blog, I discuss a new business topic, usually related to some of the questions and concerns that someone may have when opening a small business. Last week, I compared franchised and independent businesses, outlining some of the pros and cons of each.
If you are thinking about hiring a freelancer, you should definitely ask to look at their portfolio, paying particular attention to some of their most recent work. This will give you a better sense of what they can do for you.
