Are you interested in publishing a nonfiction book? Do you already have a blog in that niche? If you answered “yes” to both of those questions, you might be a prime candidate for turning your blog into a book.
This is largely what I’m doing with my own nonfiction book, The Query-Free Freelancer. I used my freelance writing blog to help me organize the book outline, and much of the basic content came from the site (although in an edited and sometimes completely rewritten form). I also added a lot of content to the bits taken from the blog, but that isn’t always necessary.
Have you ever shelled out good money for the show and then felt cheated when the movie was over?
Maybe it was a low budget flick that you held high expectations, or a box-office favorite with high ratings that was low on entertainment value.
Most of us have.
Being a frugal freelancer, I was determined, after having this happen too often as a “sequel”, to gain something redeeming for lost time and money.
Christmas lights, shopping bags, and endless family gatherings… it is a season full of fun, and distractions. Here at Master Google, we think that the end of the calendar year is the perfect time to plan your marketing budget for the new year. So, what’s the smartest budget choice in 2012?

With the explosion of free internet video chat, internet billing and payment systems and employment websites devoted to freelance gigs, the number of American employees turning to freelance as a full-time employment alternative has dramatically increased. In fact, as of 2009, more than 17 percent of the 14 million self-employed workers in the U.S. considered themselves independent contractors or freelancers.
“Many Americans think of freelancing as a small supplemental activity,” said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey. “But what they don’t realize is that these individuals are making just as much – sometimes even more – than they previously earned in a traditional work environment. Freelancing is not only providing them some extra spending money but it’s also covering rent, credit cards and other debt and bills.”
Recently I came across a thread on Warrior Forum, “How do I write stories with great SEO?” in Copy-writing section. It goes without saying that the guy was scratching his head on how to incorporate the strict rules of SEO in his copy writing project. Indeed, writing sales copies with great SEO is almost next to impossible. Sales copywriting per se is a hard art to master anyway. This is what one of the best SEO experts, Aaron Wall, in the world has to say about copy-writing.
