I have recently been accepted as a free-lance writer for Demand Studios, who recruit articles on many different topics for several online information sites. Calling upon my experience as a Utah master gardener, and doing a ton of research, I spent many hours working on a pretty short article about appropriate shrubs for zone 9 areas. It was a whole lot of work for a small amount of money. I wondered if it was a worthwhile use of my time.
However, I have learned a lot. I have learned the strict structure for the type of article I wrote, and I learned do's and don't's of the tone of writing for this company.
Hopefully, subsequent articles will be easier and progress faster than this first one. I've signed up for a couple more articles already, and am getting started on them. Wish me luck!
