Why become a freelance writer


Freelance writing is a great way to make money, but it can be hard to decide if it’s right for you. I’ve been working as a freelance writer for years and have seen firsthand how many benefits there are when you become one. 

Here are the top reasons why I think everyone should consider becoming a freelancer:

You can work from home or anywhere.

You don’t have to be in the same place all day, and you don’t have to worry about getting dressed or taking off your shoes. You can work in your pajamas if that’s what makes sense for the project at hand. And if it’s not practical for them to go outside during their commute home from work every day, they’ll still be able to get some writing done while they’re on vacation.

You can be your own boss.

As a freelance writer, you’re in control of your own destiny. You can set your own schedule and work from anywhere! And if that’s not enough for you, then we’ll throw in the fact that there are no bosses to answer to at all—you’re fully autonomous.

If this sounds like something that could work for you, then congratulations: You’re now officially an entrepreneur!

You’re in charge of your career.


As a freelance writer, you can choose what to write about and when to write it. You’re in control of your career—and that’s worth its weight in gold.

You’re also not beholden to any one client or boss. No one is telling you that they want their site redesigned or updated before they even have an idea of what needs changing! If there are multiple people working together on the same project, then it makes sense for us all as freelancers who need income from our writing efforts and would want each other’s input on how we handle things like copywriting or layout design with our client’s projects.

You can increase your income potential.

As a freelancer, you can increase your income potential by learning new skills and gaining experience. The more you write, the more you can earn as a freelance writer. The more experience you have, the higher your paycheck will be. For example:

  • If I hadn’t been doing freelance writing for so long, it would’ve been easier for me to get an entry-level job at an office job.  It was when I established myself as a freelancer who could offer high-quality work without having any company affiliation or background knowledge about their company’s culture or products/services.

You get to talk about things you like.

As a freelance writer, you get to talk about things you love. You can write about anything from the latest news and trends in your industry to what’s happening with your friends and family.

If there’s something that interests or inspires you, chances are someone else will too—and if not them then at least the readers of their website or magazine article!

It’s also important to remember that being an expert on one subject doesn’t mean being able to write about everything equally well.

For example: if I were writing about nutrition but didn’t have any specific qualifications in nutrition, it would be impossible for me to write anything approaching convincing on a topic as complex as dieting/nutrition without extensive research into both theory and practice first-hand experience before even beginning my articles’ drafts.

So while I might know lots about nutrition because I follow all sorts of blogs related directly to this field myself, there is no way I could hope to share 100% accurate information regarding every aspect

Every day is a different challenge.

You will have to write about different topics and work in different ways. Every day is a challenge, but it’s also exciting!

  • You’ll be writing for people who aren’t experts on the particular topic you’re covering. This means that you’ll need to come up with your own ideas and concepts as well as research them thoroughly before writing anything down.
  • If someone asks for an article on something they don’t know much about, then this could mean hours of research if it’s not already part of your job description—and even then there might not be enough time left over after all that work!

There’s always an opportunity for growth as a professional.

As a professional, you can learn new skills. You’ll be able to get better at writing and improve your communication skills. You’ll also learn about time management and other areas that are relevant to being a freelance writer.

In addition, working as an independent contractor gives you the opportunity to work on projects that interest you in new industries or topics, such as sports writing for ESPN or technology-related articles for PCMag Magazine.

You have the chance to learn new things.


As a freelancer, you have the chance to learn new things every day and add them to your skill set. You can learn new skills, techniques, topics, and people. It’s a great way of growing as an individual and making yourself more valuable in your field.

You’ll also get to meet other people who are doing the same thing as you—and that’s where I think it all starts: sharing ideas with someone else who has something interesting or useful to offer!

Being a freelance writer is great exercise for your brain.

Being a freelance writer is a great way to challenge your brain. It’s also a great way to learn new skills, stay mentally sharp and stay physically active. You can work from home or anywhere else that’s convenient for you—so it’s easy to fit into your schedule!


As you can see, there are many reasons to become a freelance writer. Freelance writing can improve your life in many ways! You’re in charge of your career and it allows you to work from home. Your income potential is unlimited because there are no set hours or deadlines that need to be met by anyone else. You get to talk about things you like all day long without worrying about who might listen. Every day is different because there’s always something new happening in our industry
