    When You’re Too Scared to Start Freelance Blogging

    When you’re trapped between something you must do (like write that blog article) and something you can’t do (like write that blog article, because of a variety of reasons), it causes stress. It feels like any action that you can possibly take is the wrong one; if you do manage to work on your article, you second-guess your work and that feeds right back into the stress.

    The mind is tricky and likes to avoid stress when possible. Which is when you find your attention sliding away from your article and back to social media, games, even housework…anything to put off the complex problems ahead of you.

    However, this vicious cycle of can’t-do/must-do can usually be stopped.

    This is a great post! As freelance writers, we can sometimes underestimate our worth. When we do this, we make it difficult for all writers to make a living wage. Working out an hourly rate is a great way to make sure that you are getting paid fairly. Thanks for the tips!
