Freelance Writing From Home: The 5 Benefits

Who doesn’t want to work from home and stay in there pyjamas all day? Obviously, there are some clear benefits (beyond PJ day every day) that make freelance writing an appealing career. Today, we are going to share the top 5 things that are great about working as a freelancer once you get the hang of it.

  1. 1. You make your own schedule
  2. Getting to choose when you work (and when you don’t work) is one of the perks of being a freelance writer online. You can give yourself as many holiday days off as you like and you don’t have to worry if you need a sick day.

    If you aren’t a morning person you don’t have to start your day until later on. And if you’d rather work 18 hours one day and then give yourself a few days off that is completely okay by… YOU!

  3. 2. You get to choose what you write about
  4. Although, at first the pickings may be slim. Once you develop a following and find some regular clients you get to pick what you write about. This means that you can refine your own niche’ and write only on the things that interest you. Also, if you find an interesting project that allows you to be creative you can develop it in the direction that you want to go. This pretty much allows you to have complete freedom in what you are working on, on any given day.

  5. 3. You can work anywhere
  6. Is traveling a dream of yours, well pack your bags! If you work as a freelance writer once you don’t need to even have an address. You can work from anywhere and travel freely.

  7. 4. You determine your own pay
  8. As you become a better writer and the demand for your work increases you can ask a bit more for the work that you do. This means that there is unlimited potential for the amount that you get paid to write.

  9. 5. You don’t have to pay for childcare
  10. For individuals who are parents being a freelance writer from home is appealing because they can all be a stay at home parent. This saves you money on childcare and allows you to bring in a bit of additional income for your family. The only downside is you have to become an expert multi-tasker and learn how to care for your kids AND still get your writing done.
