Top 10 Freelance Writing Blogs

By Edited Jul 25, 2015 0 2

In this day and age, there is an insane amount of information out there for freelance writers in the form of blogs. Much of this information is dubious, however there are certain blogs that are definitely worth a look by those wishing to improve their writing skills. Check out the following 10 blogs for inspiration and ideas.

1) Copy Blogger: This blog needs no introduction. As the name would suggest, it's the ultimate authority for copywriting on the internet. Brian Clark knows his craft inside and out, and there is such a wealth of information here that it's virtually guaranteed that you will learn something. Check out his 10-part tutorial "Copywriting 101" for a quick fix of copywriting goodness.

2) Men With Pens: These guys have been at it for a long time, so it goes without saying that they know what they're talking about. Men with Pens has an insane amount of information on every aspect of writing – from creating better fictional characters to improving your copywriting skills, it's all here.

3) Freelance Folder: This blog is chock full of "Tools, Advice, and Resources" for Freelancers. While it also caters to other freelancers, there is a lot of information here for Freelance writers. Highly recommended.

4) Write to Done: Zen Habit's Leo Babauta hangs out here, so you know it's going to have a productivity flavour. As the blog says, the articles here are unmissable. A lot of guest posts, but all centred on making the reader a better writer. Definitely worth a look. The theme is beautiful too =).

5) Problogger: If the name of this site doesn't tell you why it's on this list, then nothing will. Darren Rowe has been doing this a LONG time, and is very good at what he does. I saw a book by him in a university bookshop, which is a testament to his skill as a blogger and a marketer. Pretty much impossible to read this blog and not take away at least one or two hints.

6) Freelance Switch: With 400,000+ monthly readers, Freelance Switch is a behemoth, and for good reason: the information is top-notch and there is lots of it. Good luck ever reading everything on this site. While the site is written for the wider freelance audience, there is definitely a lot that writers could get out of this fantastic blog.

7) Skelliewag: Skellie is the editor for Freelance Switch and writes at this site. Skellie has been producing top-notch material for years, and her blog is bursting with goodness. I regularly refer to her blog, and every time I do I find myself coming away with something new. Definitely recommended for freelance writers.

8) Daily Blog Tips: The name says it all really. A great source of ideas and inspiration for anybody who runs a blog, with a fresh article posted every day.

9) Chris Garrett: CG co-authored the Problogger book with Darren Rowe. That alone should tell you all you need to know: he knows his stuff. This guy has been around for a LONG time. Go check him out now and watch your writing lift off.

10) 43 Folders: Even though there's not much new content on this site, the archives are still positively dripping with goodness. Check out the post "Watching The Corners: On Future Proofing Your Passion" for some inspiration on how to sustain whatever it is that you love doing.

So there you go. 10 top blogs for any Freelance Writer. Thanks for reading!
