Freelance writing takes grit.
You have to put your faith in your own talent and strike off on your own, without the comfort of an office job and stable paycheck.

You all know about our ongoing promo partnership with Flexjobs, which can give you up to 30 percent discount on membership. But because today is that day – when everyone’s expected to slash prices – Flexjobs is going the extra mile.
Well, more like the extra percentages in discounts.
Let’s get right down to the details. What do you think of these numbers?
- $5 for a month instead of $14.95. That’s 67% off!
- $15 for 3 months instead of $29.95. That’s 50% off!
- $25 for a year instead of $49.95. That’s 50% off!
If those aren’t irresistible discounts, then I don’t know what is. You can easily earn the subscription fee back in a month! You truly can’t find much better deals than what Flexjobs is offering this season.
In case you’re still on the fence – maybe you’re asking why you ought to pay for such a service – here are several reasons we highly recommend subscribing to Flexjobs:
- You get access to a vast database of jobs
- The database is regularly updated
- The jobs are manually screened to ensure a scam-free service
While there are other paid services which offer jobs, not many match Flexjobs’ reputation and reliability. Else, we wouldn’t be vouching for them.

Soon after that, the “startup” appeared on the scene, mirroring the corporate workforce, but fusing into a smaller network of guerrilla entrepreneurs. [Read more…]
“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.”
― N.H. Kleinbaum, Dead Poets Society
I’ve always thought that lazy writers are worse than “bad” writers (those who just need to hone their craft). If we were to live by the quote above, I suppose I just revealed how I think of myself as a writer — at times, at least.
There is no point in denying it — I use “very” more than I should.
How about you? Are you aware of how often you use the word? [Read more…]
