[tweetmeme source=”azwritergal” only_single=false https://writinginsand.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/who-do-you-write-for/%5D It’s day three of the Blogathon – so far, so good.
Who do you write for? Do you have private clients, do you write for content mills or blog networks? Do you write for yourself?
I do a little of everything. Currently, I’m writing for Demand Studios and Suite 101. I got accepted for Break Studios, but I haven’t written anything there yet. I’m also waiting to hear back from Internet Brands. I got accepted there a couple of weeks ago, sent in my W9 information, and haven’t heard anything since, not even replies to my emails. That’s been a little frustrating.
I’m also in the process of getting set up as a Haunted Places Examiner at Examiner.com. They are trying to decide what edition to put me in, since I don’t live in any of the cities they cover; and I don’t have documented experience for the National Examiner spot. I used to write for them, as the Phoenix Cat Care Examiner, but that was a hard topic to cover, at least for me. Since I don’t live in or near Phoenix, I’m pretty unfamiliar with the cat care resources there. The Haunted Places will be much easier, since I’ve been fascinated with the topic all my life.
I also have several personal blogs, but I do horrible at keeping up with them. I have too many blogs, I know…I need to combine some and pare them down so that I only have two or three, a much more manageable number than what I have now, which I think is somewhere around six or seven I think.
I also write for private clients, but right now they are few and far between. My last steady client job ended in October of last year, and I haven’t been able to secure anything since. Not for lack of trying either…I try to apply for one private client job every day. So far though nothing’s hit. I’ll just keep trying.
