    Hi,
    So, I've been reading BHW forums for a long time but I didn't sign up until today because I had an idea.

    I do a lot of admin freelance work on Elance and such, but I'd really like to focus more on article writing. I've always loved writing both academically and creatively and I don't mind writing articles for blogs when it's required for a job. I also have a lot of experience writing product descriptions. However, I would like to focus more on email campaigns, promotional writing, copywriting (full page ads instead of just 100 word product descriptions), and informative articles.

    I think I'm an okay writer but I'd really like some my work to be critiqued. Any kind of feedback would be great.

    I don't think this is against any forum guidelines or rules, but if it is I'll of course take down the thread or revise it.

    I'm willing to write pretty much anything and I'll send it to you (Email, PM, Google Docs?) and you can use it if you want, no credit to me required. In exchange, I'd appreciate feedback.

    That's my idea. I'm hoping I can get a couple pieces reviewed so I can learn what I need to work on. I'd really appreciate it if current freelance writers helped me out on this or if people who have experience hiring freelance writers helped me.
    I obviously can refuse to write something if I don't feel comfortable or if it's too long, but I'd appreciate if some people could think of assignment they'd hire someone to do for them.

    Perhaps provide guidelines like:
    Prompt/Topic
    Type of writing
    word length
    desired keywords
    keyword density
    how long you think it should take to write
    how much you'd pay for it (if you were paying)

    I hope this isn't a stupid idea. Let me know what you think!


    Also, part of what is holding me back from freelance writing is not being able to think of topics to write about. I need some pieces for my portfolio and to submit to sites like constantcontent and squidoo, but I freeze when I think about what my topic should be. Any advise for this would be great!

    One more thing! This post was written very, very, casually. My articles don't sound like this!

    So, I did some looking around and I see that other people have offered to do the same as I have above. Which is good! Hopefully this will work out.

    Thanks everyone!
    I'd appreciate it if anyone who is interested could PM an "assignment". If you give me the details of what you want, I'll write some stuff up and send it to you!

    I really appreciate the positive response :D

    To everyone who has messaged me: I've seen your messages and I'll get to work on them soon. I really appreciate the help.
    I can't reply to any of the messages until I have posted at least 15 times in this forum, so I'm to find posts where I have something worth contributing.

    I WILL be sending replies soon. Thanks again!

    Thanks to everyone who commented and PM'd me. I'm going to begin writing them in the next few days. I had to wait to finish some paid freelance work first.

    I'm excited to hear some feedback!
