"When you hit a plateau — over $500 a day, and you can’t get beyond it — that means that you need to consider scaling your operation. Almost any form of writing you’re doing WILL scale."
- Scaling post
This week's "make $500 a day from your writing" series on Fab Freelance Writing Blog has sparked a huge amount of interest. I'm very pleased that it's helping readers.
I've already created a long list of topics I want to explore on the blog, just from hearing about writers' challenges, and listening to the responses to the posts. I love it when something I write gives me MORE to write about. Excellent! :-)
You decide how much money you'll make
One thing that struck me was how many writers were trapped in writing ghettos, writing for low-paying clients. (Sigh.) I thought that with the death of the content factories, and with writers being in such high demand, we were beyond that. Apparently not.
As I've been telling writers: if you're writing for low pay, that's who you're attracting. You need to refocus, and reposition yourself. I cover that kind of thing in my writing coaching, because it takes time to work out what a writer's doing, then create a positioning plan, then put it into action.
I can see that I'll need to talk more about writers positioning themselves, on the blog. :-)
