Hi, it looks like you have a lot of great professional work in your portfolio. How did you land so many great assignments? Thanks.

Hi Mary.

Most of the articles I have on here are ones I did for free as a contributor to a couple of websites. The one (Scoop Post) did eventually start paying a small amount for articles.

I chose to write for free in the beginning to help get a portfolio together.

The work for the CRM website was a paid gig though.

I actually haven't updated my freelanced.com portfolio in a while as I don't use this site much. Haven't had much luck with it - although did get the CRM gig on here.

Your experience looks great! As a past reporter, you should have no problems landing some freelance work, I'm sure!

I only really started freelancing this year (with no past journalism background) and it has been a difficult year as initially you just don't make money or you make very little money. I have landed a few clients (mostly once-off) and a couple of months ago landed a contract with a PR agency which was great. I'm hoping some ongoing regular work comes from the PR agency - fingers crossed!

So this year was largely spent laying the groundwork, making contacts, marketing and networking. Hopefully this pays off in 2014!

Thanks for dropping by and sending me a message! :)

Keep well and feel free to keep in touch. :)
