Let’s cut to the chase. Are you looking for more writing jobs? If so, it might be time to dust off, or set up, the blog on your writer’s website.
A fellow writer recently asked me if blogging is worth the effort when it comes to generating job leads for writing opportunities.
My answer: Yes! Here’s why.
- Publishing a new blog post on the same day each week shows you can follow a routine and meet self-imposed deadlines.
- A blog is a chance to showcase your writing style and voice while tackling a topic you want to write about.
- Posting new content each week proves you’re still writing. If your most recent blog post is dated six months ago, potential clients might assume the website is abandoned.
- Blogging shows initiative and dedication. You have to generate topics, do the writing, add visuals and format it for the web.
When a potential client is reviewing multiple writers for a project, I guarantee the one who shows they can meet deadlines, help ideate topics, write well and do it all consistently will rise to the top of the list.
