Guest Blogger Eliza Ferree: Time to Move on..

Well, today is my last day as a Guest Blogger and I just wanted to say thank you to all those that commented or read the blog. I've enjoyed chatting on the sidelines with ya'll.

Now for my last post before I move on. How do you know when it is time to move on from what you are doing? It doesn't matter if it is a certain field you've been in for some time or the next step up in the freelance writing world. It may even be just a higher pay that you are moving up.

Many writers, especially content writers are faced with this every year, if not more. So, I ask you the question. Writers may decide to move up after they've written every type of content writing they can on a certain topic. Maybe they feel a bit like they are repeating themselves or are just plain bored of the topic. A writer should move on before they begin to hate the subject, and if they start seeing signs that's when they should run. Of course, finish the projects you already have at hand first.

Second, a writer moves on when they feel they've stayed at a certain pay for longer than they should. This is especially true for those that are just starting off in the trade. Maybe they began at writing $1 for 500 words or $5 for 500 words, after a while they'll realize they can ask for more. The more experience you have under your belt the better. Maybe you should even create your own website or find someone that does....hmmm Carson perhaps. If you don't feel confident with your own site join a team. But every writer must move up at one point.

Third, a writer may move up just to see what else is out there. Maybe they've never been in the business of writing before and have discovered they've got a knack for it. Try some new things as well as content writing and see which shoe fits better. Chances are both will fit and you'll make plenty of income and connections.

Well I hope I've helped you this past week, or at least given you something to look at. Keep writing and have fun doing it.
