When it comes to searching for freelance writing jobs online, it can be very troublesome and time consuming. Especially if you are just starting to build up your reputation as an online freelance writer, a good decent project that pays well can be tough to come by. Although there are a lot of websites for example Elance and Odesk which are specially design for freelancers to look for jobs, you still might not get any project if you do not have a good reputation or people do not know who you are. At the end of the day, you might go through a lot of websites hoping to find any jobs that you can work on. It is tough at the beginning when you are just starting to build up your reputation as a freelance writer. I would suggest accepting lower fees just to show to the online world your writing ability. Freelancers have to prove their ability by showing off their work and let customers decide the price of your work. Usually the best common place to do this is at Fiverr. Freelancers might not make much money at Fiverr but it’s a good place to start.
Freelancers can also check out Write Jobs. This is a very simple site that posts nothing else but freelance writing jobs. The freelance writing jobs are categorized into pay rates, non-craigslist, home based editor, paying literary market and free writing contest. Basically the site gathers all the freelance work inquiries that pay more than $10 from all around the web. Although you might find similar inquiries from other site, you should take the time to browse through the jobs available. As the site only posts about freelance jobs, it shouldn’t take much of your time. I too glance through some of the pages and it seems most of the freelance jobs are based on US or Canada. If you are lucky, you might stumble upon few long term freelance jobs.
