It’s Freelancer Freedom Week on Copyblogger

Did you know that freelancers make up about a third of the U.S. workforce? I didn’t either, until I listened to Brian’s Unemployable podcast episode from last week.

What I did know is that freelancers have always been a wonderful part of our audience on Copyblogger. This week, we have a lot of great content to support freelance success — whether you’re freelancing full-time or you have a “side hustle” in addition to a more traditional job.

On Monday, I let you know about a program that’s very dear to me — our Certification program for content marketers. This is a program for writers who want to learn more about content strategy … and get the chance to apply for our list of recommended writers. The post tells you more about how the program works, and how to get involved.

On Tuesday, Stefanie outlined three “TET” factors professional writers need to create a strong business for themselves. She’s set out a ton of specific advice and resources for you here, so go grab it.

And on Wednesday, I announced our content challenge prompts for May — one to make you more productive, and one to make you more creative. Anyone can benefit from these, but they’ll definitely be useful if you’re creating your own professional path. I’ll be very curious to see what you do with these this month!

On The Digital Entrepreneur, Sean Jackson and Jessica Frick talked with Jess Ostroff about best practices when it’s time to bring a contractor or employee into your business.

Stay free, and we’ll catch you next week!
