Before I started taking freelance writing work online, I spent about a year working on my own blog, freshinfos.com, creating content regularly on latest Apple releases, social media, and everything related to technology. By the time I registered with a freelancing site, I was already a seasoned writer with quite a lot of experience and knowledge on everything that’s going around the web.
This awesome qualification helped me land almost every job (3 out of 4) that I pitched to on Elance. Some contractors even contacted me personally via email to hire me for work. Just mentioning my background and my website on the profile was enough to get invited to a whole lot of jobs every week.
