A Freelance Writing List of Job Boards

I’ve been so busy for the past two months that I’ve pretty much neglected this blog. My plans were to finish up a couple long-term, time consuming client and personal projects so I could get back to my regular posting routine by May. Fortunately I received an email from a reader that prompted me to post today. This reader is just getting started and asked if I would share a list of job boards to get her started. I thought it might be a good idea to post it for others as well.

I know some writers don’t think much of job boards today because all too frequently there seems to be an increasing number of ridiculous offers being posted; but I don’t count them out completely. From time to time I keep the faith and visit them from time to time because amid all of the junk you’ll still find a gem or two. Here is a list of the job boards I visit. If you know of any others not mentioned in this list, please feel free to share.

  1. Freelance Writing Gigs – Updated daily and there lots of great freelance writing articles and resources too.

Thanks for the link... at we publish jobs on M-W-F - I don't have what it takes to do it daily ) Also we work hard to publish only jobs you can do in your pjs... no go to the office writing, editing, blogging, translation jobs.
