Freelance Writing Jobs for the Week of 11/25/2013

Written by Yuwanda Black

Observations as I went through this week’s freelance job listings . . . Number one – the sheer variety of writing and blogging jobs out there – everything from lawn care to cooking! Second, more and more companies seem to be looking for writers/bloggers to “take over” their blogs (ie, become long-term ghost bloggers). In case you didn’t know, time is the number one reason many companies cite for not doing things like blogging (aka content marketing) and social media CONSISTENTLY; hence the need for freelance writers to take over and be their voice on the web.

One more thing – I know many are in holiday mode, with biggies like Thanksgiving coming up here in America. This means a lot of freelance writers AREN’T focused on work, which leaves the door open for those of you who are super-focused at this time. Good luck applying!

Note: Some of these jobs, although freelance, may be location specific. In those cases, the location is listed. Now, today’s listings . . .
