I've posted in this forum about a couple random website ideas, but I haven't actually had the time or resources to follow through with them because money is a constant issue. I'm currently just trying to make ends meet working a day job I can barely stand.
Writing has always been my passion, and considering I have nothing to invest in an online business at the moment I've been thinking I should stick with the basics. I don't mind writing SEO articles, but still can't bring myself to grovel for pennies on one of the content mill sites. I could start my own blog, but again narrowing it down to a specific niche and gaining readers would require a significant amount of time and energy just to get things started.
Does anyone have advice on how to find decent and consistent work as a freelancer? I don't have experience in copywriting but would be more than willing to take a stab at it if I knew how to actually land a client without previous references... I know this is a general topic but I've been pretty frustrated trying to figure out where to start, so any thoughts are appreciated!
