    I'm with you, dear. I keep going back to the new forum as well, checking for new threads :) Ya'll definitely want to follow along and keep up with our progress. For new writers or established ones, the forum, blog and Myspace page are great ways to keep up on new market listings that actually pay DECENT wages!!!

    women are underrepresented when it comes to this sort of thing. that's why I made the comment.

    it's pretty well known that women get paid less for the same work when it comes to large corporations. it's nice to see women taking the alternate route and working for themselves.

    Best of luck Denise and Jenn! I think you have a great idea, and I will definitely be a frequent visitor to your site ;) Although I'm transitioning out of the freelance writing world and into being a full-time webmaster, I really think this will be a great resource for anyone looking to break into freelance writing.

    Then now you do. :) And hopefully we'll have his bio up soon, and you'll know more about him as a writer. :)

    Maybe he just likes being mysterious. ;) Nah, I'm sure it'll be up soon.

    Rebecca,

    Just an FYI, the Fadoo.net link in your sig isn't working right.... so you better get on updating it anyway. ;) j/k

    EDIT: And for the person who decided to red rep me yammering on about how this comment was "post padding" or just bumping this thread - actually, I made a comment to Rebecca, b/c I tried clicking her link from her post here and it didn't work. I mentioned it jokingly since she already made a comment regarding updating her sig right in this thread. Sorry for assuming you could read all by yourself. :rolleyes: And if you don't like it, just don't read it. I'm updating here daily, b/c people specifically requested (again in this thread if you could read), that I update, and the markets are beneficial to quite a few copywriters around here. And if people respond, god forbid we actually have a "discussion" in a public forum.

    Thanks Jenn!

    Fadoo is actually my husband's site that I collaborate on a bit. He had a script malfunction early today on the gaming page which made a mess. It's fixed now.

    Oh, and I guess I accidentally bumped the thread didn't I? I like to live on the edge...

    I don't know...I live a simple life over here...

    Oh, and I prefer GREEN if it's all the same to you!

    Also, incidentally, the Challenge has replaced Fadoo in my signature so the earlier discussion was pointless after all!

    Is it too late to join the writer's group, or the challenge? I earned close to, but not quite, six figures last year, and hope to top that number this year.

    I know that I need to take several steps to reach this goal (which means taking time from a busy schedule). I want to leverage my time more effectively, so that I'm working less hours, and earning more, and would like to learn from others how they do this.

    It's too late to join both, I'm afraid. :( You'd have to talk to Jenn, but the writer's group may open up again in the future. However, you are more than welcome to follow along with our progress, join the forum (http://www.allfreelancing.com) and talk up a storm with your fellow writers. :)

    Yep, the forum is open publicly, and we're more than happy to have you there. :) It's only a few days old, but we've got some good discussions and a great bunch of people forming over there. :) And since we're all writers, it's been a pretty supportive environment so far.

    The Challenge is only 5 of us, and won't be opening up to "members". We're going to be sharing our progress starting in January when it kicks off, and I sincerely hope other writers decide to join in on their own and help raise their incomes. :) Would it be beneficial, ILoveWriting, if I set up another area in the forum for other writers to "join" in and post their own progress towards that goal? It wouldn't be in the official blog, but perhaps it would serve as a sort of writer support group. :)

    Jenn
