Question – Freelance writing is legitimate or not?
I got a mail from a house wife many times a week because she lost job and asking for genuine home based writing jobs which she can do as a freelancer from home in her free time. Below given FAQ will answer the question – Freelance writing is legitimate or not? And also I like to work from home; can I enter in the field of freelance writing?
We can see two different questions mentioned here. If we consider the legitimacy of freelance writing as a lifetime career, we can say that it is possible completely and not all such projects are scam, some are genuine. There are many people who work from home full time and earn a good income by doing this. Few other writers are doing it as a part time job by spending few hours and earning income according to the hours spent. Sure, there are many opportunities you can see such as magazine editor, copywriter and also online writing for websites. Here you can make a handsome income but it leads to another question.
Will you try for a freelance writing job because you like to work from home? Maybe your answer is NO.
Surprised with that answer?
If I consider this question, I found that it is not writers who are in search of home based freelance jobs but those who are from other fields are coming to enter in this field. They want to try what they can and how they can. Their main motive is not to do writing, but to earn income from home.
Can you guess it? In my opinion, they will never get success in it.
It is a fact that most writers want to do writing. Also they must have basic degree of skills or talent in writing field.
By this, the freelance writing is legitimate or not is clear. I am doing it each and every day. It does not mean that you have to become a writer to do some jobs which are home based. If writing is your passion, you love it and you can do writing in a good manner, then you can do it. Entering in the writing job just for doing anything from home to earn money is not good. This will not give you success if you select writing career for just earning money from home.
