Get Your Freelance Writing Questions Answered — Free!

I’ve started a free, weekly live call, The Freelance Writer’s Free-for-All.

It’s a fun, freewheeling event that takes place every Wednesday at noon.

What happens? I eat lunch and answer your questions about how to earn more from writing. I used to be able to get to all those mailbag questions on my blog, but at this point I get too many, so I started this call to get more questions answered.

Send me a question and I’ll try to answer it on the call. I’ll send you a link to the recording, just in case you don’t make it to the call live.

I’m bringing on a series of rockin’ guest co-hosts…next Wednesday for instance it’s Allena Tapia, the freelance writing expert from

On the first call, questions included —

  • What’s the best way to raise your rates?
  • How can I break in as a freelance writer?
  • What’s the best-paying type of writing?

Listen to the first Free-for-All recording and find out my answers.

I look forward to seeing your questions!

How One Writer Got a Handle on Technology

On the Make a Living Writing blog today, I’m telling the sad tale of how technology makes me cry, and how I learned the many programs writers need to know to function online today.

One lifesaver has been my membership in A-List Blogger Club, and the tech advice I get in their forums and in the course materials.

Also, I discovered prices are going up for A-List membership, so I’m doing a special offer for anyone who subscribes to A-List through me this week, before the price rise — get a free copy of my one-hour teleclass with Stanford Smith of Pushing Social — The Top 10 Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Making Money.
