The Month of February 2017

As I started to learn about freelance writing in the month of February, I made my own set of mistakes and accomplishments. Initially, I applied to every work I found out and soon I realized that the workload I took up was too much for me to handle. I did work for nine clients and I knew I could not keep up with the work I was assigned. With this experience, I gathered a skill of managing the minimum client, for example, three or four clients only at one time. I learned how to apply for the work and how to make clients. During the path of learning, the quality of my work increased drastically.
I don’t know how I managed to write 78 articles in the month of February. I wrote six or seven articles per day and even on Sundays. I just wrote all the time and during the night hours also. I worked the midnight oil out. I began to develop new skills of improving the quality of my work and gradually, I started to reach new horizons of success. But as the month of March crawled in all my energy was drained out and I had to reduce the number of clients gradually. During this process, I lost my earned money as clients did not pay for my work. Some of them did pay and some did not bother to pay me.
It taught me one important thing, as a freelance writer, the payment is not a guaranteed thing. Apart from this, the experiences of learning new writing skills were beneficial for me. I grasped new techniques of researching and writing on such topics that I did not know of at all.
Now in the month of March, I am feeling exhausted and writer’s block. I am looking forward to getting over this phase of writer’s block so that I can start working vigorously like I did in the month of February. I believe that more is still left to be learned and I am eager to learn new aspects of freelance writing. I wish to maintain a good reputation with my clients and I want to retain a few clients for long term work now. I think the right time has come to select suitable clients for long term work and deliver good quality work to them.
I have aimed now to develop a work and life balance in my life and make a daily routine to reduce workload and stress. I think creating a schedule of working time will help me or at least setting a number of hours of working will help me. I also have to figure out how to overcome the phase of writer’s block because for one week I am not able to write too much. I really want to get over with this inability to write. I want to write more and as much as I can. I will find out a way to do it very quickly.

My Journey As A Freelance Writer

Since I was at school and the first time, I started to write, I knew somewhere in my heart that I was meant to be a writer but finally, becoming a writer now was not a piece of cake for me. I struggled with many thoughts before finalizing that writing is the right career for me. Gradually, it became clearer to me that I wanted to become a freelance writer and apart from this, I also write poetry and fiction. From that moment onwards, I started hunting down how to become a freelance writer. I read each and everything related to freelance writing that I could put my hands on the internet. I am very grateful to the internet and writers who have written about freelance writing so beautifully but there were a few things, I had to figure out myself through experience.

Although, I have written many articles and I have learnt how to write on almost any topic while knowing the fact that choosing a specific niche is necessary for a freelance writer. I guess I will figure out my niche as I will write more gradually. I know about many niches as I have read so much regarding it. I have tried my best to find out all the possible things about freelance writer. The speed of writing and the number of articles I write have increased with a lot of practice. As I have more than six months of experience only, I guess I still have to learn many things and unveil several new stuffs regarding my career.

I have learnt how to write good articles, how to increase number of the words I write in a particular time, how to research on a topic, how to communicate with clients, how to take right the quantity of work which you can complete in time, how to implement kaizen to my work and how to manage money effectively in these six months. I have learnt how to find work, how to apply for work effectively and finally, get the work.

As I worked for many clients, I meet some great people, made some new friends and I learnt new things from them. It has been a great experience working with my clients and they were very understanding and flexible while working. I am sure now than I was before that freelance writing is the ideal career for me.  I really love and enjoy my work. I always try to improve the quality of the work and decrease the delivery duration of my services gradually.

How does a day in my life look like?

As you might have already figured it out that I am a writer who writes poetry, fiction and non-fiction if you would have checked out my website.  I have been working as a freelance content writer for more than six months now, although, I had started preparing to be a writer a few months before starting to work by reading as much as I can. Now-a-days, what I do in my whole day might appear to be pretty dull if you look from far and you are not interested in writing but if you look at it as a writer or someone aspiring to be a writer then you will realize that my life is exciting as well as a tiring one. In my whole day, most of the time I spend is on writing and reading as it is my work so it seems like it is obvious. I find myself reading novels as a luxury, dancing and listening to music whenever I find free time.

Apart from checking emails, I keep records of a few things related to work and plan for the next day. Usually, my day begins with a little bit of breakfast, doing the morning stuff and checking out for the day’s work. I analyze how much work I have for the day and plan when I will do which work. I have breakfast and take bath quickly. I start working from 11:45 am until around 1:30 pm or 2:30pm then I go for lunch after 30 or 40 minutes I start working again. Before going to sleep, I go for a walk with my family whenever I can and read a book to relax during the day.

In the morning hours as you might have noticed, I don’t do much stuff usually because I have to work late in night till 4 am so I sleep in till 10:00 am. I know I might appear as a stupid person who works too much or may be a workaholic, just to point it out but I do work harder and I try to complete a day’s work before the next day begins to maintain a good reputation with my clients. I am burning the midnight oil most of the days to maintain a reputation as a hard working and reliable freelance writer. I have a lot of work load and writing to do, hence, I work 8/10 hours per day but I take the liberty to allow myself a holiday once in a week on the Sunday’s  to do other stuff I like, for example, watching television, reading books and occasionally, I dance and spend some time with my family. I sleep early on Sundays as well as wake up earlier the next day on Monday than usually, I do.

On Sunday, I clean and do dusting of my room, wash my clothes and dry them up, but sometimes, I do work for two hours also and go out to places with family. I like to watch movies, listen to music and relax for a while. I have started eating healthy diet but I still have to add some kind of exercise regime into my daily routine as well. I miss out a lot of things in my daily routine from Monday to Saturday like talking to relatives, family and friends, developing a new hobby or a new skill, writing a diary every day, cooking new recipes sometimes or tasting new recipes occasionally, drawing and painting. I will try to add new things to my daily routine gradually.

List of 130+ Freelance Writing Niches

So I thought I should write a list of freelance writing niches that might be helpful to a beginner or anyone planning to create a new blog or website or freelance writing business.

Top 5 Freelancing Tips by Me

I have been a freelancer for six months and I have realized being a freelancer is exciting as well as a difficult task. Continuously hunting down for clients or new jobs or assignments, managing personal finance, improving skills, marketing, talking to new people and learning from other freelancers is what I do simultaneously.

Initially, it has been a hard task to manage everything but I think I know a lot about freelancing as I research a lot. On the path of my career of freelancing, I have made a few mistakes that I would like to share while I am still progressing towards success. I didn’t know how to find work, how to reach clients, about rates and to be an expert but I have learnt it now.

I would like to share top 5 freelancing tips by me:-

You should try to find out and know if freelancing is hobby or small business for you, part time or full time job- It will help you to know how much time you have to dedicate for freelancing. Freelance writing is a full time job and small business for me so I know I have to devote a lot of time. After you know this, you can easily schedule your work and ascertain how many hours you would like to work for.

Hourly rate or Fixed rate– Another thing that you will have to decide is whether your rates will be fixed or hourly rates. Hourly rates are charged to clients on the basis of rate per hour who work for them and fixed rates are charged to clients no matter how many hours you work on basis of rate per project that you have completed.

How to find new jobs or clients– Finding new jobs and clients is the most important task for a freelancer as we work with many clients. You should have a website or blog to display your services and what kind of work you do so that people can know about your work. On the website, you should display your portfolio and previous works done by you. Get charged up all over the social media so that you can market your freelance business and potential clients can reach you or contact you if they would like your services. Mention on your website that you are for hire so that potential clients will know for sure, you are available. You can register into job searching websites where freelancers and clients come together to contact each other like upwork.com, truelancer.com and indeed.com. You can browse for other websites and send them emails to inform them, if they need your services and you are available. Contact other freelancers and ask them who are their clients, where they find them and how they find them as they might want to help you.

Find out your field of expertise or specialization in freelancing– Knowing your expertise or specialization can be help in freelancing small business as you can gain reputation and authenticity of being the best in your field. Knowing a specific niche is important for me as a freelance writer. Specific niche is a specific area of specialization or field where you can be an expert for in some time of learning. You will be more likely to get hired as possibility of getting hired as freelancer increases if you are an expert of a specific thing or skill.

Don’t give up and keep trying as you will get there soon– As freelancer, it is crucial to keep yourself self-motivated and inspired to work more and harder till you reach your goals. Don’t give up and keep trying as you will get there soon. Sometimes, I also have to motivate myself when finding work becomes a stressful task and I relax for a while. I try to find work and more work continuously.

So far I am enjoying my work and I am happy to be a freelancer. I am learning and improving as much as I can on regular basis. I keep find new assignments to work on and I like my work. I hope these freelancing tips help in your journey of freelancing.

Why I Started Blogging

Since I was at school, I always enjoyed reading books and writing stories. During my days in school, I would read all kinds of fiction books ranging from best seller ones to not so popular ones and non-fiction books like how to be successful, how to choose a perfect career path, how to improve personality and spirituality. I really wanted to land on the perfect career which was suitable for me. I started eliminating career paths which I didn’t like and made a list of things I liked. I eliminated science, chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics which I found not easy to understand. Gradually, I realized that I loved to write more than anything else. Finally, I decided that I had to do something related to writing as my career. It was a relief to my mind to get to know what I wanted in life.
Everything went back in to place and I started my first blog in 2014 where I would write short stories. At that moment, I was not aware of all technical aspects or features related to the blogging and unfortunately, soon I got busy with other issues of life. Eventually, I forgot about my first blog and started studying to get a professional degree and stopped updating my blog.
After two years, I made up my mind again that I will not divert my path from writing. The main concern of my family and relatives was how I will earn through writing as writers are assumed not to earn very much. It is difficult to make a living as a writer is how people think of writing as a career. This time I was determined that my career will be writing with or without money and I started my second blog in 2016, “thenewvoicevishakha.wordpress.com”, where I write short stories, poetry, personal articles, serial fiction and I add new ideas which I like to the blog. Initially, in my second blog I wrote non-fiction articles on random various topics but later, I figured out choosing a specific niche or theme was necessary for a blog. So I started writing fiction and poetry while I was figuring out a specific ‘niche’ for my blog.
As I researched on writing jobs, freelance writing caught my attention and I started knowing more about it. I decided, finally, I will be a freelance writer and started reading about how to be a freelance writer. During this time, I was still deciding on a specific niche and I was reading many blogs simultaneously. I figured out complex niches were high paying like finance, digital marketing, health, online marketing and business, web designing and web development, SEO writing and online business. There were other niches like pregnancy and baby caring, fashion, beauty, knitting, freelancing tips, how to make money writing, making money online, blogging tips and sports, culture, music, art, history, news writing, small business and other niches.
With knowing all of these niches, it was more confusing to choose two or three niches for my third blog and among all these niches, lifestyle niche caught my eye while I was still researching a lot regarding more niches. The most interesting thing that I found out about lifestyle niche is that lifestyle is a specialized as well as generalized type of niche. Lifestyle niche has a huge scope in itself as it is a narrow as well as a wide niche. I liked it instantly as it gave me a freedom to write on various topics while it was also a specific niche or theme for a blog.
After starting this blog, ‘vishakhaoutlook.wordpress.com’, I changed the niche couple of times but I didn’t find myself writing about them. I was stuck for a while but then, I decided to write in lifestyle itself.
I always liked the freedom of writing on several topics and I discovered lifestyle has always been the niche I had been aching to write about.
This is how I started my journey with blogging and writing. I have found out many new things about writing as a career on the way recently. I am more confident regarding writing as my perfect career and I have a feeling that I might be a successful writer very soon in the future. I hope to share my journey of my career and life with all of you.
