8-tips-on-how-to-be-a-successful-freelance-writer

The moment I quit law school, I told myself that I won’t rely on my husband when it comes to my needs. Thanks to him, I discovered the world of online jobs and found myself working as a freelance writer (among many others) more than three years ago. Since then, this “career” provided me good pay – good enough that I can splurge on myself and the kids, and treat the husband occasionally. I can say that working as a freelance writer is not easy. Sure, an employer will give you a topic and you have to write a…

To Give Up A (Good Paying) Job Or Not: That is the Question

at

If you were to choose between being a housewife or a working woman, what would you choose? Thankfully, I got the best of both worlds. I gave up law school when I found out I was pregnant and embraced the role of being a housewife and stay-at-home mom. Apparently, I felt something was missing. I don’t want to rely on allowance from my parents or ask from my husband whenever I want something. Thankfully, my husband introduced to me the world of online jobs, thanks to his batchmate. Three years later, I am still with the…

WAHM Diary: 8 Tips to Start Your Freelance Writing Career at Home

at

I just realized that I’ve been working as a freelance writer for almost three years now. So far, this “career” helped me manage my personal needs and the earnings are good enough to allow me to splurge on my kids. Being a freelance writer also opened different opportunities for me and it makes me feel happy that some of my works are noticed. To be honest, I never pictured myself writing for someone and getting paid for the work done. I always have this idea of working in a firm and talking to people in my corporate attire…

MMIA: Momma Missing in Action

at

Wow. It’s been a while since I last blogged about my (mis)adventures. I have difficulty juggling kids, online work and even the household. So, what’s up with me lately?  1. Valentine’s Day.  Ours wasn’t a fancy one. No dinner at expensive restaurants, no flowers and chocolates, just us celebrating Hearts Day as a family. I decided to cook dinner and prepared Cheesy Bacon Baked Potatoes, Garlic Rosemary Chicken (get the recipe here) and baked Moist Chocolate Cake. My eldest helped me out in the baking process, so you can just imagine…

Working my way as a Freelance Writer

at

Writing was never really my first choice. In fact, I only do it because I’m required to, not that I want to. Before my writing stint, I had it all planned out – law school, family by the time I reach 30, a blossoming career. But the tides have changed and I found my way writing for different people and getting paid for it.It was my husband who encouraged me to do this. When I quit law school to focus on my kids, he opened the idea of working online. It’s a win-win situation after all. I…
