Here's a surefire way to get everyone to listen to your years of experience and wisdom: become a writer. If you haven't noticed, the Internet is full of words. It has a good amount of videos and photos, but there are plenty of opportunities to find a freelance work from home opportunity for seniors -- especially as an online content writer.
In the old days, writers had to send off query letters and wait patiently by the mailbox for a letter to come back from the publisher. In fact, it was often the case that a writer had to buy the stamp and the envelope, as well!
But today, writers just log in, find topics, and start writing. Each web publishing company does things a little differently, but here at BlogMutt, there are no assignments, per se, and therefore, no stress of deadlines to deal with. Writers get to choose the articles on which they will be writing, for whom they will write, and how they will approach each topic.
Experience and background are never wasted, and no matter what your professional background is, chances are, there's a BlogMutt client who could use your help in creating compelling content for their websites. BlogMutt clients range from startups to high-profile businesses, and the collaboration model is very modern. In fact, sometimes the clients learn from the writers.
Of course there are other companies that hire writers online, and if you choose to check those others out, be wary of anyone who wants you to buy a list, pay to subscribe to a newsletter, or pay to take a training course, even if they break it into easy payments. Applying at BlogMutt is as easy as filling out an application and answering a few questions. And it doesn't cost anything.
Once you're hired, the CEO of the company will contact you directly and provide you with a training video to which you can refer whenever you want. The staff and other writers (affectionately called "mutts") are very welcoming, and have created an environment that values teamwork and positive encouragement.
Finally, when you work from home, you're free to create your own schedule and work at your own pace. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us to learn more. If this already sounds like something you're interested in, you can apply online and start sharing your wisdom with the world.
Editor’s note: This blog is an example of the kind of writing you can get for your blog. The only thing that’s different is that it has the name of the writer. For your blog, you can say you wrote it. That’s fine with us. We’re happy mutts. Click here for more explanation of this series of posts. — Scott
