Working on a New Project, And I Need Your Help!

This is where I solicit the help of my network for a project I'm working on.

After my recent near-breakdown (I still don't have complete breakdowns), and after reading an awesome post on just launching your project (ready or not) from Jesse (who's been an awesome friend to me), I've decided to work on something that is more my own.

I'm really excited about this project. And I want it to be useful to you. I want to know what YOU want to know about freelance writing and professional blogging. Leave a comment below, asking your burning question. I'll incorporate the answers to your questions in my project.

I haven't been this excited about something in a long time, so help me out, even if it's just out of pity. Think of something that you want to know about professional blogging and/or freelancing. Then put the question in the comments below. If it's a more private question, you can feel free to email me (if you have my address) or send your question via the Contact form.

I'm excited to see what you come up with, and I hope that my new project ends up being a useful resource.

  1. My questions are, how does one even get started in this business that seems so overwhelmed with people that write about the same things? And lastly, once you find your niche, how do you then reach out to sponsors so that your blog/writings become profitable? or do they reach out to you?

  2. How do you balance your networking time with your working time? I feel bad because I have’t had time to stay involved with the community but I the blog has grown and it demands more time. Help~!

    Next question – how important is it to keep my own voice in the blog posts vs hiring more excellent writers like you?

    Thanks…

  3. Do you have templates for different types of articles you write? For example if you are doing a ‘how to’ article you know you’ll hit x points in the article.

  4. I’m curious how freelancers are paid. How are prices set for freelancer work? Do you negotiate, or is there a set price you are paid for each piece?

    Great idea! Would be interested to know what your personal trajectory was like, and how we can learn from it. Thanks!

    Miranda,
    You write for so many outlets, and I know that the PF community was happy to see you start your own blog here at Planting Money Seeds. (Me too!) And your site is doing well. How do you know when it’s time to start a new venture? Or in extreme situations, when to cut your losses and start something totally new?

  7. How do you best manage your energy and time to maximize output? (I also like Jeni’s question above…second!).

  8. Where do you draw the line for your own privacy while blogging… how far you go with personal stuff that you write about?

  9. How do you organize all of your ideas? I get tons of ideas, but often can’t organize them properly.

    How do you NOT piss off partners/friends/family as a freelancer? When I get an idea I feel like working on it immediately.

    How do you decide what article to your for your own professional blog vs a freelance article?

  10. I wonder a lot about how to get clients to come to me rather than having to seek them out all the time. I always think I’m doing a decent job marketing myself, especially writing for several blogs, but it’s still an ongoing challenge.

    Also, how do you stand out amongst other freelancers that essentially offer the same service you do?

  11. Do you prefer to write general personal finance articles, or do you think it is better to specialize in one or two areas?
