I am just so excited to share that I finally received my 1-week income as a Freelance Content Writer. Yayy!

I have been waiting for this message since last Friday, and I am so happy I finally received it this morning. As you can see, the time I received it was around midnight. But I only got to check it when I woke up. And the amount is only 2,240 pesos because I only got to write 7 topics for a week. This means that for every article I wrote, I am paid about 320 pesos. The rate or fee is actually not an issue for me because I am just a beginner in this writing industry. Maybe when I already have enough paid writing experience, and when I get a full-time or even a part-time job, I'll hopefully get a better income or salary.

As a freelance writer, I only get to write when my client or employer gives me a topic to write about. Sometimes, I get a huge number of writing tasks for a week, and sometimes, I get none. This scenario is totally fine with me as I also get busy with my studies, and I would easily get burned out if I have a lot of projects to do.

So here are the writing tasks that I wrote about last November 20 to 25.

Task 1: Overwhelmed with Online Schooling? Here's why and how you can cope

  • The target audience for this topic is the Filipino Senior High School and college students who are doing online classes, and its due was last November 20, 2020.

  • I am a college student myself who is also taking online classes so writing this topic was fun as I was able to talk about the things that get us stressed with it, and the things we should do to overcome it.

Task 2: How to Survive online learning for your toddlers and preschoolers

  • The target audience of this article is the Filipino parents with toddlers and preschoolers who are doing online classes or playschools, which was due last November 21, 2020.

  • This topic was also kinda easy as it is related to online schooling. I just had to search for more information about it because college is different from the preschool environment.

Task 3: Tips for quick and healthy meal preparations

  • Millennials and busy moms and dads are the target readers for this writing task. It was due last November 22.

  • I personally love writing about health-related topics, especially meal preparations, because this is something that interests me more.

Task 4: Fun Ways to Benefit from Chia Seeds

  • This is another health and wellness topic written for Millennials and busy moms and dads last November 23.

  • I love eating Chia Champorado and drinking Chia water so I got really excited when I was searching about it as I found out a lot of easy recipes that I can also try using Chia Seeds.

Task 5: Honey should be your Kitchen Staple: Here's Why

  • Again, the target readers for this topic are the Millennials and busy moms and dads that were due last November 24, 2020.

  • Honey was my buddy when I was still having a Keto-diet as I use it as a sweetener to my lemon water, so writing about this task was just a piece of cake.

Task 6: Tips on how to teach kids to deal with failures

  • Filipino parents of preschoolers are the target audience for this writing task and were due last November 24.

  • Writing about it made me feel like I'm a parent already as I got a huge amount of tips as if I will be able to apply them myself. Lol

Task 7: Herbs that can help you have a powerful detox

  • Another health and wellness-related topic so this one is again for the Millennials and busy moms and dads.

  • This was the last topic I wrote about that was due last November 25.

If you were asking what is the point of sharing these writing tasks, well, it is to share my experience and for me to give a bird's-eye view about how it is like to be a freelance content writer.

I know some of you are also interested to do this, so it is my way to help motivate you to carry on with this journey as a writer. You already have the talent and passion for writing, so it is now time to level up with it and make it your career.

Don't be discouraged when a prospect declines your proposal or application. Just keep searching and you will eventually find the right client for you.

(Side note: this is somehow a message for myself. Lol 😂)

I found my current client through a Facebook group. I do have a profile on OLJ, and I just made an account at Upwork last night. But I haven't found a client on those sites because I'm not actively applying atm.

It's hard to find clients on Upwork you need to get fully verified before you can start sending proposals good thing you successfully found a client outside those platforms cause you don't have to pay for their fees.

My profile on Upwork was approved right after I finished filling up the form. I honestly don't know what's the next thing to do tho. Haha! That's so true, which is why I prefer looking for clients through FB groups.
