Thanks Springtulip -- but, bah!!! Well, if they kick me off OneSource or Crowdsource or whatever they're calling themselves again, I can at least take a look.

The very best thing I ever did for writing career (and my bank balance) was ditch writing sites (iWriter, Elance, Constant Content, Scripted, etc.) altogether and start pursuing my own clients. I started up my own freelance copywriting business in 2013 and now make enough to travel a third of the year. I use cold emailing to get clients, mostly (I loathe networking).

The demand for competent freelance copywriters is huge. Unfortunately, there are some very good writers stick writing for peanuts on job boards or content mill sites. It's crowded at the bottom

I'm living proof you can get away from writing sites and make good money. I just wish I'd started earlier!

I have some clients that have contacted me, either via LinkedIn or via sites like iwriter, and they do pay well, but I hate dealing with them. I always end up blocking them and going back to the content sites.

Some writers actually make a very good living from those sites. I've only used one of them, and pretty much every assignment pays more than $0.10 per word now. That's around what I get from my private clients, too, so it's not bad as a backup (and it's double what that site once paid). I work for 2-3 hours a day and make a full-time income. I'm no jet setter, though, thanks to my two young kids. .

Sounds encouraging to me!
