Content Writing…Who Knew?

internet-is-distracting

Hey, everyone!  Wow, so I haven’t been able to update the blog in awhile because I have been so busy!  I think the last time I posted I mentioned that I had bid for some jobs on www.freelancer.com, and unfortunately, I still haven’t gotten a project on there but I also haven’t put much more effort into it, so it’s really my fault.  You know when you’re looking for a job or a way to make money, you have to go all in!  My mind has been all over the place and when I sit down at the computer to search for something, I jump from site to site and have found that I’m not being very effective with the little bit of time I do have.  So it’s time to get more organized!

So the reason I’ve been so busy is that one of my friends messaged me on Facebook after seeing my post and told me she is opening a hardwood flooring business and asked if I would write all the content for her new website!  I was pretty nervous at first because I know nothing bout hardwood floors (except that they look beautiful in a home), so I did a lot of research and wrote what I think was some pretty good stuff.  Check it out on the link above and let me know what you think!

Take Action!

Hey, everyone!  I just realized I haven’t made a post in quite awhile.  Sorry about that for all of you who sit on the edge of your seat waiting for me to post a blog every day!  Ha!  So we’ve been super busy with the holiday last weekend, working on getting the kids on the same sleeping and eating schedules, me trying to manage my time and work in between raising kids and running a household.  I know I talked about time management in another post, and just wanted to say that it is definitely a lot harder than it sounds!  I’ve gone for a couple of days at a time without taking a shower, I usually stay in my pajamas until 2 or 3 in the afternoon, and my house is a wreck right now, but I have been making some progress with the job hunt!

I signed up with www.freelancer.com which is a site where you can offer pretty much any type of service you want.  You create a profile describing your experience and your skills, and people post whatever type of services they are looking for.  You can then place a bid on the service, and they choose whichever one they like out of all of the bids.  I haven’t landed a job through them yet, but I’m not giving up.  I’m pretty sure your ratings and reviews from other clients play a big role in getting jobs, and since I don’t have any experience on this site, I don’t have any reviews or ratings yet.  I’m thinking I’m going to have to get some of my friends to post jobs and give me ratings just so I’ll be able to get some legitimate jobs.  That’s not too dishonest, is it?  I’m just trying to be creative here!
