Guest Posts & Freelance Writing

My writing journey began when my first guest post was published on Scope’s Online Community, and I’m immensely grateful for the writing opportunities that I have been offered since. Seeing my written words out in the open, publicly and for all to see, it felt freeing.

Ever since an early age, I disliked expressing myself through writing because everyone, mainly teachers, belittled me after reading my work. I know that I’m not a talented writer, I just say how it is. If everyone’s writing style was the same, would that not be boring?

I was overwhelmed when I received a lot of positive feedback after people had read my first guest post. The main thing that I have learned throughout my nearly 3 years of writing, is that writing can be a very powerful thing, especially when others can relate to you.

The over-thinker that I am, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my writing journey and if it is something that I would like to continue with, and maybe even pursue further. The answer to that is yes, I do want to continue writing and I would like to earn money by becoming a freelance writer. However, another question looms over me, am I ready to become a freelance writer?

… and the answer to that is a definite no. I don’t feel ready to start charging for my written work.

Personally, I still feel like I don’t have enough experience underneath my belt with writing for different publications. It’s not that I don’t think that my work is worth any value, because it is, to me anyway. I just would like to gain more experience with writing for different publications and audiences.

If you would like me to write a guest post for your blog or website, then please do get in touch! Like I said, I won’t be charging until I feel ready to pursue freelance writing.

Do you write guest posts for other blogs and websites? If you are a freelance writer, would you mind sharing how you started and if you have any tips?

Ami 💚

  1. I didn’t know scope had an online community, but it makes sense to use their platform like that. If you ever want to write a story of feeling unwanted and it’s affects it had on your mental wellbeing, then I’d love to feature that on my blog in my Stories section
