About Michelle1137
Joined July 2014
I am a freelance writer and editor. My professional careers as well as my undergraduate and graduate education have provided me with a wide range of experience in the following areas: writing grant proposals and letters of inquiry, creating professional brochures, composing business letters, developing contracts, and writing content for websites and newspaper articles.

For the past six months, I have been fervently striving to get my freelance writing and editing business off the ground. This has been quite a slooooow process, but I'm not giving up. After firming up my decision to start this business, the next question to pop up in my mind was :Where do I find customers"? My first attempt at accruing freelance jobs and customers started with checking out the writing jobs and gigs on Craigslist. Most of the people that I e-mailed did not respond to me, and there were a couple of people who were giving me the run around. I have been searching reviews online for platforms that provide money making opportunities. There is one site that I joined that helped build my confidence in my writing skills. Everything went well until they deactivated my account over a misunderstanding. I was devastated when they did that to me without justifiable cause or warning.

A member from a group that I belong to on Linkedin recommended WA. I did my homework and researched reviews of WA. They have an excellent rating and positive feedback as well. So here I am ! I'm not going to give up on my dream no matter how many obstacles I have to hurdle on the road to success.

I only had 23 hours left of my free trial, so I decided to go premium. I like what I see so far and hope that my wonderful experiences here continue. I want to thank everyone who is following me and sending me messages. It makes me feel kinda special.

A couple people asked me what was my google+ link in order to view my Blogger blogs. Here it is:https://plus.google.com/u/0/116476250689557398922/posts

Without dreaming up new ideas and acting upon them, we become stagnant. Thank you so much Keane for the positive feedback. That made my day!

I am happy to Michelle. You made mine a few minutes ago...so I guess I beat you to it.

I like that: "...Without dreaming up new ideas and acting upon them, we become stagnant...". NICELY SAID!

No. Are they sites like WA?

Not at all. WA is a member training site. The sites referenced above are sites that freelance writers can go to and sign up for to be apprised of people and businesses who need writers for specific project-oriented jobs. Give them a try.
