How to Get Freelance Writers to Work for Free

Some freelance writers work for free and don't even realize it. It kind of pisses me off because we seem to be one of the only professions I know of who - as a group -- are highly educated and very skilled. Yet, we are more than willing to spend our time working for mere pennies.

And, this has nothing to do with freelance writing rates. It has to do with how we go about branding ourselves -- or not. Are you one of these freelance writers? Read my post today, How to Get Freelance Writers to Work for Free, at for details. Feel free to share your thoughts.

New Ebook! In other news, I'm working on a new ebook, How to Get Out of Debt on a Freelance Salary. It's one that's been on my list to write for a while. With the current credit crisis, bank failures and mortgage industry meltdown, it seems that it couldn't be more timely.

Freelancers have an uncertain salary to begin with. The economic troubles now have a lot of of us running scared. There's no need to be. In spite of what's going on, I've been able to make some good progress paying off debt. I'll explain how/why. Book will be finished in the next two weeks. I'll announce it here.
