Taking a break from the usual long, written blog posts, here’s a video for you.
A couple of weeks ago we started an occasional “Blogger of Interest” series in which we talk to freelance bloggers to find out how they’ve built their career and what tips they can share with us.
Francesca started her freelance writing career at Examiner. From there, she built a reputation that attracted new clients and professional rates for her online writing.
In this interview, Francesca talks about how she took her first steps into freelance writing, how she finds her clients, and why she’s started a blog that teaches aspiring freelance writers how to build their business.
