Finding Interesting Freelance Online Content Writing Jobs From Home


Writing from home isn’t quite like you think it is unless you’ve done it before. Most people think you just stay at home in your pajamas and do nothing, and only the first part of that sentence is true. You can work from home, or from a coffee shop, or while on vacation, and hence wearing any clothes you want to. But you aren’t just being lazy or doing what you want all day—you have writing to do.

How to do freelance writing from home

At the beginning, you might not get many writing gigs, or they might not pay very well, but that’s how you build up a portfolio and get experience in the industry. You do need to start somewhere, and once that’s out of the way, you can go after the jobs that you really enjoy doing and want to write. Content online is very diverse—from car repair to pet training to sports topics, there’s a place out there for anything you want to write.

Here are some ideas of ways you can be a freelance writer from home:

  1. Find an online site such as elance.com that helps clients and writers to find each other for writing jobs

  2. Take a look at your favorite magazines—is there a story or news piece you could write and send to them? Make sure to follow submission guidelines

  3. Find online journals or newspapers that regularly send out issues about topics you want to write on—there’s plenty of information if you search as if you are looking for a digital magazine to read, and then make sure to read a few of their pieces so that you know what kind of material they like publishing

  4. Try using an online resource that lists websites who will pay for freelance pieces, such as Writer’s Market, which puts out a new volume each year of the latest places for publication

Using that advice, you should be able to get a good start on this. It doesn’t matter if you want to do this as a new career or just on the side to make some extra cash, you can begin any of the ways listed above. It can be scary to start something new, but once you’ve done your first job and been through the process, you’ll realize how fun it is to make money from your writing.
