The good news is that there are several sites out there where you can search for blogging jobs and complete them from the comfort of your own home. You may have noticed that remote working is fast becoming the new normal. If you enjoy working remotely and fancy yourself as a bit of a writer, there are many opportunities out there if you dare to go after them.

5 Sites To Find Blogging Jobs

1 . Freelance Writing Gigs

Freelance Writing Gigs is a popular site amongst writer types; you can search by type of job i.e., blogging or copywriting. Most of the jobs on the website are remote gigs which can be done from anywhere; however, some do ask for writers in certain countries, for instance, the UK or the USA. Freelance Writing Gigs provides all you need to start applying for some great writing jobs. For those looking to get some blog writing jobs, simply search ‘blogging jobs’ on the site and see what interesting picks come up.

2 . Writers Weekly

Writers Weekly is an excellent resource where you can find plenty of content related to building up your writing career. The site accepts articles about the craft of writing. Having said that, these cannot be common topics about blogging tips, etc. (the site has already produced enough of this kind of content). Writer’s weekly pays writers $40 for a story about ‘freelancing success’ and $60 for feature articles.

  1. Women On Writing

WomenOnWriting is a site dedicated to inspiration and tips for female writers. The site hosts contests and writing programs to help give your writing career a boost. Bloggers who are looking for site exposure can enquire with WOW, and they also accept blog articles to inspire women to write. The site pays approximately $50 for pieces of around 1,000 words.

  1. Problogger

In 2004 Darren Rowse started the Problogger site. He’d just started blogging himself and wanted to connect with like-minded individuals to exchange info about cash from blogs. The site has a job section where you can search for paid blogging gigs with various companies across the world. Companies are usually based in the US or the UK, but you can generally complete the work from anywhere.

  1. Freelancer.com 

The Freelancer.com site is a great place to look for blogging and content-based work. Simply search by the term ‘blogging’ and take a look at what’s on offer. Users will need to bid for the jobs on freelancer.com, but don’t worry; it’s not as scary as it sounds! You simply need to put in your rate and a short section about your skills and experience along with any links. When you don’t have any blogging experience, it’s simple to set yourself up on WordPress and start practicing. There are plenty of blog tips online to get you started off on the right foot.

5 Things I wish I knew before setting up the blog

I set up this blog in 2012 and it has been a rollercoaster journey. Blogging has led me to all sorts of opportunities and I am thankful to have discovered this amazing platform. However, if I could go back in time, there are some things I wish I knew before I started blogging. Knowing these things would have made my blogging journey a lot more straightforward and not as topsy-turvy as it has been.

5 Things I wish I knew before setting up the blog

Here are the five things I wish I knew before setting up Fashion and Style Police –

Use SEO

I learnt Search Engine Optimisation- SEO many years after I set up the blog. In the early days, I wrote whatever I felt like writing with little or no regard for search engine search. I didn’t even know anything about SEO in 2012. If I could go back in time, I would learn all about SEO and use the knowledge in every blog post.

Make use of internal links

I would make use of internal links from day 2. Using internal links regularly is a great way to direct search engines and your readers to other blog posts on your site. It is a great way to revive old content. I wish I knew this back in 2012.

Focus on the social media platforms that works

It makes sense to have an online presence on as many social media platforms as possible because you never know. However, if I could go back in time, I would focus my energy on the social media platform that actually drives traffic to my blog and use the other platforms differently. Currently, Pinterest is the platform that drives the most traffic to my blog. Other social media platforms work more as a standalone for me and hardly bring in a good amount of regular traffic.

Research keywords and topics

Researching keywords and topics helps you share the knowledge your blog readers really need. This is one thing I wish I did more of 7 years ago.

Practise makes perfect

The more you write, the better you become. Practice makes anything a lot better. I wish I had more time to write everyday in the early days of blogging.

These are the top five things I wish I knew and did in the early days of blogging. We learn everyday and I have learnt loads in the last few years.

What do you wish you knew more of in the first year of blogging or before setting up your blog? Do you have any blogging tips to share? What do you think of these 5 Things I wish I knew before setting up the blog?

Learn a new skill at home

With many of us are quarantined at home, this is the best time to teach yourself something new. Learn a skill at home to take your mind off what is going on all over the world. To decide on the skill or skills you want to acquire, ask yourself, what you are really interested in. Here are some amazing ideas for you –

Blogging

You could set up a blog to keep your creative juices flowing and see where the blog takes you. I set up this blog over seven years ago and I am glad I did. I wish I set it up earlier. You can start blogging today if you like. It only takes a few minutes to have your brand new blog up and running. I offer a blog coaching service, and I can coach you on how to make the most of your blog, so you can start earning money from it. You can send an email to fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com to hear more about the blog coaching service I offer.

Vlogging

Setting a YouTube channel is another way to make the most of your free time stuck at home. I have a YouTube channel and it keeps us busy as well. If you have a thing for visual content and you have knowledge to share, vlogging may be your calling.

Baking

We love baking here. We have baked loads of cakes in the last couple of weeks. The next on our baking list is a Banana Loaf! You could get yourself a baking book online and play around with different recipes. It may just be the start of a new hobby or career.

Hairdressing

Many of us have no idea how to really cake for our hair. Some of us struggle to do our own hair. One new skill I am working on is hairdressing. I already make my hair and daughter’s hair in plaits and all, but I also want to really learn how to make cornrows. I will be watching loads of YouTube videos to help me.

Make your beauty products

I do this already and I plan to make even more beauty products at home. At the moment, I make hair oils and hand wash products from home and it gives me joy that I am able to make some of the products I need from home. You could do this as well. Do some research online and find the area that interests you.

Writing

Do you have a flair for writing? You could improve your writing from home and even write a book if you are feeling up to it. The sky is only the beginning.
