Alyssa's Weekly Wrap Up

We Are All Unique
When we first created The WM Freelance Writers Connection, then known as Writing Mommies, I had just started my freelance writing journey a few months prior. At that time, I had no idea just how vast the freelance writing world is. Freelance writing is more than just a career, it’s a way of life for us that often doesn’t receive the credit it deserves. Freelance writers play a large role in every ones day to day lives, and most are unaware of where the content they read every day comes from.

Google Panda: What does it mean for you?
Have you heard about Google's new Panda? No, it's not a cute, black and white cuddly bear, but a new method Google uses to index websites and web content to produce a SERP ranking. Some of you may not have noticed the changes as Panda was put into place, but others may have noticed a drastic decline in site traffic and ranking. If this is the case, it's essential you become up to speed and learn how to get your site back on top!

When Opportunity Knocks
Throughout our writing careers, opportunity often knocks on our door when we least expect it. What surprises me the most when opportunity knocks is where the opportunity originated from. I've worked with clients who have found my work on sites I never expected to land clients from. Casual conversations with random people have left me with freelance opportunities.
