Many freelance writers are also freelance bloggers or own a blog of some sorts. This is why Problogger is essential. Darren Rowse is the creator of ProBlogger.net and is also one of the most successful professional bloggers. Problogger provides many resources for writers on top of their blog, podcasts and ebooks are just a few. I recommend their free course on how to start your own blog. I featured ProBlogger in my post on websites where freelance writers can find work due to their job board found directly on their blog. Their board is updated regularly with trustworthy job opportunities for freelance writers.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: https://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
