Every day, many people come online to make a living as a writer — hoping to enjoy the freedom they desire by engaging themselves in content writing jobs from the comfort of their homes. Naturally, the first option they get introduced to is sites like Upwork (formerly oDesk), Guru and Freelancer.com — often unaware that there are better alternatives to sites like Upwork.
Instead of freedom, they get slavery.
It’s not long before they realize that they are running another rat race. They quickly discover that they are stuck in a never-ending hamster wheel of servitude to “clients,” with nothing to show for it. The “earn a good living by doing content writing jobs from home” dream they’ve been sold suddenly seems like an illusion.
This is bad. I strongly believe that to make a good living as a freelance writer, you need to think beyond Upwork, Guru, Freelancer.com and so called “freelance bidding sites.” You need to look for reliable, better-paying alternatives to these sites.
