Interesting Freelancing Opportunities

Upwork is a website that hosts freelance opportunities for almost anyone, regardless of skill set. Which working freelance jobs found on Upwork, I submitted book reviews, proofread things, and even wrote a few books of my own. It was definitely a unique career opportunity, because I was able to take my hobbyist blogging to the next level as a travel writer. I was even able to dabble in photojournalism.

Unfortunately, the jobs on Upwork also have the potential to be negative experiences. Writers and creators are slave to the review system, meaning that there will be times when a freelancer is required to go well beyond the listed hours and skill level, or face the consequences.

Upwork is a good stepping stone for writers, programmers, and artists. It is not a place you go to find full-time work or a lifetime career.
