Lazy Sunday Advice

Ah, another lazy Sunday draws to a close. I'm feeling much better now, thanks.

Just a question for anyone out there who might be able to answer it:

How the heck can a sassy blogger/writer like me get into more freelancing?

I want to write more in 2009, and finding some actual projects to commit to might help me a bit, I'd suppose. Sitting around and writing when I get home from work (or any other time of day) is simultaneously a passion for me and great escape from my daily grind. While I may be the most creative person in my office, my work is far from writing-related at this point, unless you count the few small projects I get to assemble on occasion, like a student newsletter or a new bulletin board.

Writing, even with its occasional stresses, is my way of de-stressing and decompressing from the rest of the world. I always love any excuses to do more of it. And believe you me, friends, I hope to do more of it here in this space as well.

Soooo...any tips? Pointers? Sources? Web sites? Advice? Give me something to look forward to on Monday. Thanks, all!


  1. Hey, I just came across your blog a little while ago. I'm also a type 1 diabetic, and a poet! Reading your blog makes me feel a little less lonely about being a diabetic (you know how people never get it and give you constant "advice" and judgement).
    Anyway, I really enjoy reading your blog and think its awesome that you've competed as a slam poet - I haven't performed yet but am working towards it :)

  2. I have no clue but I did not want you to think I was not reading. :)

    I have thought about doing something like this too but I do not think my writing is up to par.

    You are awesome and should do it! Check with Allison. She freelances alot me thinks.

  3. Hey Hannah,

    Want to be a featured blogger on the diabetes oc? If so you can write me at

  4. Get the Writers Market book from Amazon. As Kerri told me, "It's the next best thing to a paying gig." I just received the 2009 edition.

  5. Hi friend :)

    Check out and They have some good freelancing opportunities. I've been told that Craig's list also has some information though I am slightly sketchy about it. Best of luck!!
