Self discovery through freelance wring. Learning what it really takes to be a freelance writing. It is for the money or it is for your own self expression.

I Started Freelance Writing For Myself

I have always loved to write. I started writing poetry when I was five years old. I started writing online back in 2009.

b]One thing, which I have learned over my five years of freelance writing is that I did not start writing with the idea of making money from my writing. Everything, which I wrote, came from within me.

My poetry was the world through my eyes. I wrote because I loved to write. I wrote about things that I wanted to write about.

That all changed when I started writing online.

Making Money Freelance Writing

Yes, you can do research on the topic and write about them. You can make money writing articles for other people to use. But, while doing this be careful you do not loss part of you soul in the process.

When I first started writing online I was purely a ghost writer. I hardly ever posted any articles with my name on them. I made nice money doing this.

Yes, I did mostly write about things that I enjoyed writing about. The problem was someone else name went on my work. Yes, it was my chose to do things this way. Back then money was the reason I started writing online.

With Other Writer's Help

It was pointed out to me by a fellow writer that I had not posted many articles in my name over my five years of freelance writing.

I joined some social media sites and jut started writing posts in between my article writing jobs.

Write For Your Self! Your Reader Can Feel your Emotions

I found this was not enough for me. I had to go back to writing about the thing that I love and writing for myself.

I have a Master Degree in Metaphysical Science. I chose that field because I love it. It is apart of who I am.

So now, with my family and friends support I am going back to writing about the things that I love to write about. The money will come in time because my heart will be behind every article that I write.

Do not lose yourself in your pursuit of money.

This is my refection of what happened to me over my first five years as a Freelance Writer.

Thanks for sharing your article. I personally write because I enjoy it. If it wasn't something I like to do I wouldn't do it. Not even for money.

as a freelancer, i can agree with you, writing for one's self is far better than writing for others, we can always write about what we like and our views in life, which allow us to express ourselves fully.

Self expression is a wonderful reason to write. Online writing has enabled that, although social media sites required the reduction of such expressions to mediocrity, if not nasty nonsense. Glad you have found Wikinut as a place for your thoughts.
