Hello! It’s been really long before I posted anything. Well, here is something for you:
I have read many blog posts for freelancers advising us to choose 1,2 or 3 niches and specialize in. This may be true, but I say go to uncharted territory.
You just never know. It takes courage to stand at the edge of a cliff and jump (of course in terms of writing). I have tried niches I’m not comfortable with. I began with Shopping and product reviews, then real estate. On the former, I have taken steps and I can now comfortably write some good ones. On the latter, I got someone who really liked what I wrote. She sent many requests that almost overwhelmed me. This however gave me the nerve to try. I wrote the first bunch and I am happy to say that the skill I have acquired from writing her articles has become applicable to many others.
I am not saying that I have arrived, But that I am on a journey, a journey of growth. Go to uncharted Territory. You just never know!
