Writing Bids (http://www.writingbids.com) has launched a new website that helps freelance writers find and secure their next paying freelance job. WritingBids.com gives writers free access to thousands of current freelance writing projects to bid on.
Writers can find freelance jobs for many popular and niche-focused writing disciplines, such as article writing, SEO writing, ghostwriting, copywriting, proofreading, and medical writing. The site offers easy navigation where writers can click on a specific writing discipline to find the best-matched writing job; otherwise, writers can use the site's search tool to find specific freelance jobs by keyword or job type.
WritingBids.com fulfills a demand to localize freelance writing jobs from a variety of online job auction sites, as well as organize job listings in a way that saves writers precious time researching jobs that closely match their skill-set.
Brian Scott, the site's founder, said many writers who use WritingBids.com include full-time and part-time freelance writers; but an even larger segment of the website's audience includes the so-called "hobbyists" – writers and non-writers who freelance occasionally to secure a quick freelance job for extra income.
"Gas prices are up. Food prices are up. Insurance costs are up. Taxes are up. It's not surprising that more people are turning to freelancing on the side to supplement their income," said Scott.
WritingBids.com lists only paid writing jobs – no pro bono jobs – ranging from quick "one-day" assignments to in-depth "week-long" projects, paying from $100 to $1,000 per project, on average. Updated several times daily, WritingBids.com lists between 100 and 200 new freelance writing jobs each day.
"Freelancing on the side can be an easy and stress-free way to add extra income to an already tight budget," said Scott. "WritingBids.com offers job opportunities for everyone -- the part-timer, full-timer or hobbyist."
Freelance writing is one of the fastest growing areas on the Internet today. The US Department of Labor and the Occupational Outlook Handbook predicts "writers face a job outlook which is expected to grow faster than the average through 2014" with freelance writers in general facing opportunities "expected to grow at an average pace during the same time frame."
WritingBids.com anticipates an increase of freelance writing jobs (and the opportunity to earn money as a freelance writer) for the remainder of 2008 and beyond. Freelancers can view today's writing projects at http://www.WritingBids.com
