I’m in Toronto, Canada last week through this week working with a major writing client. WebsiteBox.com and I have a 3+ year relationship, and I’m working with them in rolling out a new vertical product line with major writing requirements.
I appreciate clients who need regular work, as it helps to smooth the sometimes roller coaster income of a freelance writer. I just finished one book as a ghost writer for another client and starting another soon. Work is good for you.
If I’m doing regular blog posts for a client, I set them up with a free account at MyFreeCopyright.com. This service uses the RSS feed from the blog to digitally file a copy of each post with a unique time-stamped identity. The blog owner will receive an email each time a post is protected.
While this doesn’t keep someone from stealing your content, it does create definite proof of first publication, and you can place their logo on your site to discourage copying of your content as well.
Please request this service if you want it, as there are many opinions about copyright and allowing others to use material from a blog.
Actually, the blogging I’m doing under my own name at Line Meets Curve, is to promote their online building project collaboration platform. It is an extensive collaboration and communication site for construction projects. The focus of my blog posts is more of a “contractor participant” type of content, thus the category, “A Different Take.”
With three posts per week about communication on the job between architects, engineers and construction companies, a backlog of research material is required. I subscribe to numerous feeds and newsletters in the industry, and archive the research in order to produce timely material.
I am posting approximately 11 posts per month to UGotItFirst.com as a ghost blogger. Almost all the posts there at the time I wrote this were mine. Note that the focus changed in July of 2008 from all promotional to a lighter approach with more open cell phone related content.
You’ll find that I’m able to pick up a subject quite quickly, do extensive research, and stay on schedule for blog posting.
When it comes to entrepreneurship, starting, growing and managing a business, I’ve done it several times. I’ve been my own boss my entire adult life. Writing about business and how make it successfully are my specialty.
