Hi, No-Fluffers.

Welcome to my blog. On my site you’ll learn how to build a successful writing career. If you want me to write for you, you can find information about that, too.

Freelancing Opportunity: What is Skyword?

I've found a new way to get freelancing jobs and I love it. The company is called Skyword (this is not a referral link) and it is a middleman of sorts that connects writers with big publishers.
At first, I was leery of using them. All of their clients were paying very little for articles, so I waited. After a while, the site started to get bigger and bigger clients. Currently, they have clients that are paying $10 to $200 per article.
Once you are a member of the site, you can apply to write for clients. If you are accepted, you follow the client's writing guidelines and write a specific amount of articles each month. (Some clients don't have limits to how much or how little you can write for them.) Once your article is published, you get paid on the 1st and 15th of the month. Skyword doesn't take a cut from your pay. What you are offered by a client is what you get paid.
I have found a large number of my current clients through Skyword. I suggest you give it a try. Let me know how you like them in the comments.
