6 Best Blogs For Freelance Writers

Consider some of the most successful self-employed professionals, freelancers, and entrepreneurs and you’ll realize there’s one thing you’d find in common with all them: they are all voracious readers.

For some entrepreneurs, in fact, the volume of reading they do is directly proportional to their success.

We’d go as far as to say:

“What you read is what you become”

While there are books, magazines, and newsletters you can always subscribe to, we believe that every freelancer should add a few blogs to their reading list each day.

Here are some of those blogs every freelancer should read:

Kristi Hines

What’s a better source to learn from than someone who’s been there and done that? Although Kristi is a freelance writer, she’s also a source of inspiration for freelancers across genres. Kristi writes for big-ticket clients such as KissMetrics and many others.

Kristi is an example for how hustling and continuous marketing can do for a freelancer.


While Contently.com is an awesome way to showcase your portfolio and market your writing skills, the “resources” section at Contently (along with their newsletter at The Freelancer) are a must-have for every freelance writer. Along with stories, timely inspiration, and tips, there’s also a strong community for freelancers you can tap into.

Renegade Writer

Linda Formichelli is a popular writer, magazine columnist, blogger, and an entrepreneur. Almost as if she’d hold your hand and parley you into a passionate rally, Linda can literally put your career on steroids, overnight.

Her blog is full of tips and advocacy for better freelancing. She is a staunch believer in freelance writers getting what they are really worth.

Pro Blogger

The old school blog on Blogging by Darren Rowse is still one of the best resources to learn the best on blogging, writing, and monetizing your efforts through blogging. Apart from years of archives and some of the best content for freelance writers, there’s also a popular job board for you to pick jobs from.

When was the last time you visited it?


Copyblogger isn’t just a prime resource for freelancers; it’s also a great source to improve your writing, learn the art of copy writing, master the skill of marketing, and more. Owned by the CopyBlogger Media, it’s one of the most premium places every freelance (writer or not) to bookmark.

Bliss Bombed

Stephanie is a freelancer writer who blogs at Bliss Bombed. With a fresh perspective, a straightforward voice, and with oodles of entrepreneurial trips, humor, personal experiences, and collective learning, she is an influencer with flair, passion, and tons of experience to show for.
