Fox Sports writer Sam Borden has been covering freelancers for the last year and has been doing this job for a couple of years now.
So, when he heard about the Flexible Blogger, he jumped at the chance to get started.
“I just thought that’s a great idea for people,” Borden said.
“If I could write for a living, I’d really like to have a career where I can actually make a living.”
Borden will have a full-time position at Freelance for the next two years, working on writing for his clients.
His freelance writing includes freelance copy, editing, writing on the side and some freelance editing as well.
He’s hoping to make some money off of it.
“Freelancing is something that’s always been really, really hard for me,” he said.
Borchardt says he’s been writing professionally for nearly 10 years.
His writing includes a variety of writing topics including sports, travel, music, design, marketing and business.
He loves sharing his love of writing with others and wants to help others do the same.
With Freelancers on Demand, Borden hopes to be able to do this for people who are in the same boat as him.
“I’m not going to write about anything that’s just a personal thing that I do, like I don’t have a day job,” he explained.
For those who are unsure about the career paths for freelancers, Bordens recommends a “do it yourself” approach.
