Improve Your Writing With These Editing Tips 1

Teachers, business people, and just about everyone else it seems complain often and loudly that people today (usually “kids today”) don’t know how to write. I’m convinced, though, that a big part of the problem (perhaps the biggest part of the problem) is that people don’t know how to edit. We labor under the notion that good writing flows easily from the pen or typing fingers, and that editing too much will “kill” our work.

GET GOOGLE TO FIND YOU – How You Can Make Your Articles Search Engine Friendly 1

Before anything else, I’d like to start by saying that this post is not a comprehensive guide to Search Engine Optimisation, which is a rather complex matter to talk about in a single article. But no worries, we will eventually discuss SEO bit by bit in other articles. This, however, is your freelancer’s guide to how you can make your online content way friendlier to Search Engines. If you’re looking to have Google, Yahoo, and Bing find your articles and index them in their search results – and have them remain there consistently, take the organic approach, which everyone still […]

SETTING YOUR FREELANCING GOALS AND BUILDING YOUR CAREER

For years of doing online jobs I still get quite a number of people raising their eyebrows. Skeptical questions are still being asked whether I do really make money online or not. There are those who doubt themselves, too as to whether they can be motivated enough to work from home. And while some are asking about my daily work habits, others would take the liberty to assume that I am probably an exception to the “freelancing rule”, as if there is an unspoken one. To be honest, I have not known of a freelancing rule written in stone yet. […]

There is an endless sea out there. Imagine roughly two hundred thousand writers and translation providers in various freelancing platforms.
