 Freelance writing, writing resources

To help save you the time trying to discover all these awesome resources by yourself, I created this page to serve as a reference. Obviously, there are many other paid (and free) resources out there, but these will definitely give you a good start.

Free Stock Photography Sites

Pixabay – Absolutely wonderful resource for professional photos, perfect for blogs, websites, and books.

Death to Stock – Neat site that sends new photos out monthly.

Compfight – Decent source of photos, although not always as professional looking; select “creative commons” on the left for free use pictures. 

Free Photo Editing Sites

Canva – Great for creating social media images and overlaying words on pictures for blog posts.

Pixlr – The closest thing to Photoshop without the exorbitant price tag!

Free Job Posting Sites

Freelance Job Openings – Good resource for job openings; play around with the categories to fit your needs.

Blogger Jobs – New jobs added almost daily from freelance to full time.

Journalism Jobs – Especially great for magazine and newspaper writers.

ProBlogger – Multiple jobs added every day!

Other Cool Stuff

Piktochart – Completely free site for making awesome infographics; use them on your site or as free incentives.

Mailchimp – Ideal for starting a mailing list to keep track of your following.

Convertkit – Like Mailchimp, but on steroids. There’s a monthly (or yearly) fee, but the email automation feature is incredibly powerful for list-building.  

Fiverr – Not free, but you can source a lot of great graphics and illustrations from individuals for a good price!
