Hello Hello F22 crew!
Blogging and freelance writing are all. the. rage. right now! (Do people even say ‘all the rage’ anymore?) The good news is, the internet is not a finite resource! Meaning that there is always room for more bloggers, more people helping companies with copywriting, and more content creators in general! Freelance writing allows you to pick your topics, work from anywhere, and has very little start up costs. So do you think freelance writing is for you? Find out with Nicole’s interview!
I know just the other day I wrote about how if you don’t want to ‘niche down’ then you shouldn’t! And I still stand by that for blogging and general freelancing. I believe NOT niching down can help you build a base of work that will help you later on. You can create your type of work for a variety of sectors and decide what you like best. It also allows you to not be bored, or burnt out, on certain topics. It also allows you share and indulge in multiple passions!
So why should you niche down? And can you niche down for multiple sectors?
Every superhero has an origin story. While I’m far from super, this is my story.
I’m 25 and have been laid off three times because a company is downsizing and/or closing it’s doors. Each time this happens I try to pivot to keep it from happening. (obviously my success hasn’t been great). I went from a Fortune 500 company, to mid-level company, to a micro-company where we all fit at one lunch table. Shit happens I guess.
I’ve always wanted to work for myself. So when my boss sat me down to let me know that as of January 4th, 2019 I would no longer have a job, I pretty much knew what I had to do. Luckily she gave me a really big heads up, and is a huge supporter of mine so I wasn’t blindsided.
