My First Freelance Writing Article!


Remember that a while back I mentioned how I signed up on a freelance writing website. For the past two weeks I have been messaging them because they needed to verify that I can legally work, and if it was really me.

I actually like that because I know that my privacy and work will be protected. They finally finished the verification and I finally got an email today that they were going to check my sample writing that I submitted.

Of course I do know that I am not the best writer. I am okay but I need a lot of improvement. Well they rate from 1 star (poor) up too a 5 star (good), guess where I landed…. I’m not proud but I will be honest.. I landed on the 3 star… So I definitely need improvement.

The reason they put me at 3 star is because I didn’t put a comma when talking about two independent clauses with a coordinating conjunction. So words that I have to look up now because frankly I do not know what they mean.

The good part and I will take it as a good part is that at least that was the only mistake in my sample!! Also, when someone shows you a mistake then it is way easier to correct.

Looking through the ads (jobs) to sign up for, I can only sign up if they are rated a 3 star. To my disappointment there are not a lot of 3 star opportunities. The ones that I did see were about games and I don’t play games! So that sucked.. I did find one about shopping.

About a product that a company is trying to sell. So it was a small 200 word count sample that I had to write. I’m so nervous because this is my FIRST freelance writing job that I submitted for!! I re-read that article about 4 times before hitting that submit button.

So now the client has 3 days to reject or accept my writing sample. After 3 days if the client has done neither then it is automatically accepted and I will get paid.. Now its not like I am making money here but a few bucks is a few bucks right?

So wish me luck and hope that the client accepts my writing sample!

Until Next Time,

LK
