Freelance Writing Resources and I Don't Want A Platform

I Don't Want A Platform - on Beyond Your Blog

When I started freelance writing, I began searching for freelance writing resources. The blog, Beyond Your Blog, was hands-down the best resource I found. It's comprehensive, well-written and provides relate-able content. It's been a tremendous tool for me in my writing. 

The blog's owner, Susan, has recently decided that's she no longer going to be actively writing on the blog, much to many a dismayed heart. Nonetheless, the blog's content and her podcast are going to remain available, at least for now. 

If you're interested in writing or think you may become interested in freelance writing, you need to peruse this site and listen to her accompanying podcast. I'm thrilled to be on the site today with a post that was originally on this site (but with a different title), I Don't Want a Platform

If you read all the way to through that post to the bio, you'll read a mention of a nearly completed e-book. It's true. I bit the bullet and wrote an e-book, which will release next month. More details coming soon!

  1. I commented on this piece on Beyond Your Blog, but I just wanted to say that I so understand your feelings about platform. I had a similar experience, and although I'm still writing, I'm much less focused on "the numbers." I'm following your blog. Keep on keepin' on.

  4. So proud of you Jessica!! I can't wait to read your e-book. You will be a NY Best Seller one day, no doubt in my mind... with or without a platform.
