I thought I’d take some today to answer some frequently asked questions about WritingThoughts. Some of these questions I’ve gotten e-mails about, others have appeared in past comments.
FAQ 1: Are you available for writing projects?
Answer: You can view my terms on this page or contact me directly for a free, customized proposal at the following e-mail address: laura [at symbol] writingthoughts [dot] com.
FAQ 2: Does your site accept advertising?
Answer: Yes. There are a limited number of advertising slots available for family-friendly advertisers. Placing an ad on WritingThoughts can be an excellent way to get your message in front of a diverse group of freelancer writers and work-at-home moms.
FAQ 3: Do you do paid product reviews?
Answer: Yes. WritingThoughts does a limited number of paid product reviews each month for products that fit into the theme of the site. Each review is disclosed per my disclosure policy. If you are interested in hiring me to do a paid product review you may contact me at the e-mail address listed above.
FAQ 4: Why don’t you post more often?
Answer: I would love to post more often, but right now I’m a working writer with two growing kids to feed. Family and paying jobs come first. I haven’t yet broken even from my blogging, but I hope to soon.
FAQ 5: How did you get your start as a writer?
Answer: It’s difficult to say exactly when I began writing since, to some extent, I’ve always written. I would say that my interest in writing as a career probably began when I was asked to edit my college newspaper. After college I was hired as a marketing writer and then I worked as a technical writer.
FAQ 6: I tagged you for a meme, but you haven’t responded. Why not?
Answer: I love to get tagged for memes, but I can’t always fit them into my schedule (see FAQ 4). Although they are fun to participate in, some memes take a surprising amount of work. In addition, I like to balance the fun content on my blog with more meaty anchor-type pieces. Finally, since Google may penalize such posts, I don’t participate in “train-type” memes that end up as nothing more than huge lists (over 50) of links.
I hope this helped!
