When I started as a freelance writer, I decided I wanted to write not only for magazines, but for online markets. It was a logical decision; everything seems to be going digital, after all. Copyblogger insisted 2013 would be the year for online content writers, so I figured I better hop on that train ASAP.
Despite my enthusiasm and what I perceived to be foresight on my part, I made some very big mistakes early on in my freelance career and ended up struggling through the first three months with no progress or samples to show. No one should have to go through what I did, so I’m here to tell you exactly where and how I screwed up.
