While most seasoned freelancers know that blogging is an important way to promote their freelancing business, quite a few freelancers don’t have any idea how to create an effective freelancing blog.
You see, freelancing blogs are unique. While freelancing blogs are business blogs, they are not like corporate blogs. Nor are they like commercial blogs.
As a freelancer, you probably don’t have the resources of a corporation to pour into your blog. You can’t afford to hire a staff blogger or IT specialist to manage your blog. You have to handle all the blogging tasks yourself.
And unlike a commercial blog, you don’t expect your blog to be a primary source of income. Instead, you want your blog to serve as a source of leads for your freelancing business and as a way to interact with clients and potential clients.
We’ve talked a lot about the importance of blogging for freelancers, but in this post we’ll focus on the elements that your freelancing blog needs to become successful.
