Freelance Writing: A Reliable Computer is Important
As a freelance writer you need good, reliable equipment. This is very true with the computer that you choose to use. From the first day of my freelance writing career I have made sure that a reliable computer was always available. Simply put, if I donâ€™t have access to a reliable computer there is no way for me to get my work done.
If you are lucky, when starting your freelance writing career you will not need to go out and buy a computer. Hopefully you already have one that you can rely on for the time being. As long as you are comfortable with the unit there is no point in blowing money on a new one; at least not yet.
What does reliable mean? I donâ€™t know much about the inner-workings of computers. That being said, I do know some of the details which help to ensure that my computer is always running smoothly. To me, reliability in a computer means that it allows me to do what I want, when I want. The only programs that I use, for the most part, are Internet Explorer and the Microsoft Office package. This is more than enough to keep my on track and allow me to do my job with a high level of success. Since this is nothing too advanced, I usually donâ€™t have an issue with reliability in this area.
If you find that you computer is less than reliable you may need to upgrade. Maybe you cannot get online, programs are always shutting down, or your computer is freezing throughout the day. All of these problems can be annoying, and usually call for your computer being repaired or a new unit altogether.
To become a successful freelance writer you need a reliable computer. Are you reading this blog post on a computer that you consider reliable? If so, you are one step ahead of the game.
