Why writing that is online?

I’ve had a long-running passion for words, and freelancing allowed us to practice the things I like. Before this, I worked as a projects coordinator in a national government ministry. The role was taxing, I hardly had any moment I had to wait an entire month for my pay for myself, and. I needed flexibility, thus I went and quit into freelancing.

Share with us your experience so far…

Freelancing helps one to grow pretty fast because you come in charge associated with development of your career and income have a glance at the web-site. I write for Potentash, a blog that publishes fiction, technology, finance, entertainment, lifestyle features and product critiques. Since joining the working platform in 2016, We have grown within my writing and editing skills and in the process that is general of creation. The experience happens to be nothing short of amazing.

Today, the audience that is largest that consumes written material is obtained online. Writing online has therefore given me a wider audience. Secondly, being a lifestyle blogger has exposed us to a network that is large of in several industries. We have previously been contracted as a copywriter or a content creator by the government, an NGO and an events-organising company. Additionally, online freelance writing has a feature of freedom to it. I am fully responsible for my schedule. I only take assignments that I am in a position to finish, and also time to participate in my hobbies. The pay can be decent if you are consistent while having built a good clientele base. Most online writing jobs pay from Sh2,000 for a piece that is 150-words of. With an important wide range of Kenyan graduates not able to get jobs, online writing jobs have become an alternative that is attractive. All you need is a laptop, a strong web connection and willingness to understand and grow. Utilizing the right freelancing sites, you can easily make just as much as Sh100,000 in per week. Determination and patience are key in this job. Many may not consider online freelance writing a worthwhile job, however it is, it builds your resume, cultivates your discipline and work ethics and pays your bills just like a ‘regular’ job would.
