Is becoming a Freelance Writer Simple?

Do you want to make money from home? Are you looking for an industry that anybody can join? If so, you want to become a freelance writer. Doesn’t sound like me, does it? I am not one to say that it is simple to become a freelance writer. But after yesterday, I am starting to believe that I am the only one.

While doing some research for a client I came across three “make money online” blogs that suggested freelance writing as the simplest way to start a work at home career. Yes, I agree that freelance writing is a great career that you can work from home. But on the other side of things, this is not something that is simple to do. I hate to read the opposite because it means that people are actually thinking that the money will come quick and heavy – and most of us freelance writers know that this is not true.

Just because you have access to the internet does not mean that you can become a freelance writer. To go along with this, the internet is far from the only opportunity for writers to succeed. This is one of the first ways I know that a blogger has not thought through their statement about freelance writing being simple. If you believe that writing for the internet is the only option, you are wrong. Freelance writers earn in many ways. For instance, I write sales letters, press releases, marketing material, business plans, and much more. None of these projects are based exclusively online.

I don’t want this post to scare away aspiring freelance writers. I do want it to show that becoming a freelance writer is not necessarily the simplest way to make money online. Only those who have the skills and are truly interested in this career path will succeed. The rest are better off considering another opportunity that better suits their needs.
