It can be tough to find jobs online — well, at least decent-paying jobs. One place I like to watch is PoeWar’s Job section. I don’t know how John manages to do it, but he finds some great leads. Some are freelance and some are full-time.
But so far, the leads I have seen are always quality. I have yet to find a bad listing. Except maybe Demand. I don’t agree with having them on there (or anywhere) because it’s extremely difficult to make a decent amount of money on their site. And I have tried, so I’m not just taking someone else’s word for it.
Do yourself a favor – don’t settle for $5-15 per article. You’re worth more than that. And you’ll find quite a few great jobs on John’s site to help you do that.

Are you a mom who loves to write? Do you write for a living? Or maybe you want to get started in your freelance writing career? Freelance Writing Moms is here for you.
It can be tough to be a freelancer and a mom. Whether you work from home, work on-site, or do a combination of different writing situations, we all have some things in common. We write. We have families. And we all strive for some balance.
What I hope to create here is a place where you can find support, resources, and a community of women who do what you do. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of seeing job listings that say they’re “perfect for stay-at-home moms.” That’s usually code for low-paying. And I’m not going to take it any more. I’m a work-at-home mom. And my work and time are just as valuable as a corporate employee’s time. I will not accept low-paying jobs any more. I will determine what my time is worth and I will pursue jobs that support that.
This site is for you. We already have communities on Facebook and LinkedIn, and I’d like to provide more information and articles here. To support you in what you do. What would you like to see? What would help you in your career? What are you struggling with right now and how can we help you?
