Freelancers: Old Generation Vs. the New
I consider myself to be a part of today’s new breed of freelance writers. I can’t make a living writing features or ghost writing books, but I can make a living writing a gratuitous amount of newsletters, blog posts, landing pages, “About Us” pages, sales emails, and general web copy of virtually every conceivable type. It’s not ideal, but it beats the available alternatives while I work toward bigger and more interesting projects.
Before you covet the writing days of old, consider how past freelancer tendencies stack up against today’s.
