When you embark on becoming a freelance writer you become your own boss. Your goals include building a portfolio, polishing a resume. Christine discusses online publishing sites for your first articles. Job search, free college courses and SEO to make your writing more competitive and are discussed in this book.
Would I recommend this book? Yes. I learned many things including electronic signatures which include your URL and any contact information. You might post your electronic signature in an email or forum post. I would like to add that my blogging skills have improved since I have read Christine's book and I have increased pages views on my blog. In Chapter Six the authoress explains that your blog is a way to market your writing and how people will know you so get out there and write your blog at least once a week, but daily is better. In chapter sixteen she discusses the proper use of tags so readers can find your blog.
Freelance Writing earns a score of 5 stars out of 5.

I asked Christine one question. What is next in your writing goals?
My next writing goals for book writing are to publish Chronicles of a Troubled Girl in November 2012, Articles for the Mind in December 2012, and Freedom from Fat in May 2013.
Chronicles is a compilation of all of my journal entries from age 9 to age 30. At the moment I have one journal left to type up and then I will be finished with the first draft. It is really exciting, but I probably won't be able to continue working on it until after the end of the Freelance Writing Guide blog tour, which ends September 25th.
Articles will be a compilation of all the articles I published online as a freelance writer in 2011 (I will have gained back the rights to them all in December 2012, which is why I intend to publish the book that month). It fits into the same title theme as Poetry for the Heart and Essays for the Soul.
Freedom is a compilation of journal entries and blog posts during the most recent years of my weight loss journey. It will cover my dieting and exercising experiences from 2010-2013, which is a time when I have kept continuous track of my weight loss experiences. I plan to reach my goal weight by May 2013, which is when I will be publishing the book. Although, my true weight loss journey began in 2000, so I have a lot of knowledge and experience to share.
I also would like to write another book in the "Freelance Writing Guide" series. The next book might be about what can be expected during the second year of a freelance writing career :)
Besides the books I'm writing and publishing, I hope to increase my client base for my editing services, take on more ghostwriting assignments, and branch out to do client-based ghostwriting. I plan to continue writing book reviews and blogging.
