Going Freelance?  

Posted by: mye in ,

When I resigned from my previous job, I started searching online for home-based jobs so I can help my husband, financially wise while I am at home taking care of the kids. Unfortunately, back then, I can't find a home-based job like freelance writing, designing, transcriptions, etc. I am unsure if I have just not done my best searching but really, I found nothing. That was 3 years ago.

Last week, while trying to read blogs and downloading a scrap kit, I happened to see a forum discussing about freelance writing and things like online money making. I got caught in the writing opportunity. My writing might not be in good comparison as to the works of our good friends in the blogosphere but you know, I am still interested to do it.

In short, I registered. And the good thing, registration is free. And as I go on, I keep on finding different sites offering freelance services and giving projects to freelancers. I was amazed by how many are they that I even asked myself - "Why didn't I get the chance to see these opportunities when I have the luxury of time to work from home before?"

Oh well, I've learned about a couple more sites (I hope they are all legal). One thing for sure, I did not spend a penny to register - which made me think, these are not scams - I pray they aren't.

We all can use additional online income. Mye, maybe you can make a post of your experience with them if that doesn't violate any terms of agreement with them. I find this interesting. Maybe I should cut down on twitter and other online pursuits and be productive for a change. hehehe.
