You can find a number of stories of successful bloggers who have carved out a successful career and enjoy a big following from a loyal audience, but plenty of these people have had to learn from their mistakes along the way.

That’s why the freelance writer’s resources put together on the blogging.com site could prove useful, as they guide you on how to build your profile and where to look for work so that you might improve your odds of treading a shorter path to blogging success.

The resources are organized thematically:

  • The Best Freelance Writing Job Boards,
  • How to Create a Stellar Portfolio,
  • Resources to Help You Become a Better Writer (and charge more!),
  • SEO and Social Media: What a Freelance Writer Should Understand, and
  • Resources to Help You Get Paid.
