A beginning freelance writer might initially want to accept every job that is offered, no matter what the pay or circumstances, but it doesn't take long to find out that this is not the best approach. Once you've learned the tricks of the trade, including the ins and outs of how to write online content vs printed publications, backing up facts with sources that are linked within your articles, and are confident in your ability to provide quality writing services, there is no reason to sell yourself short. In fact you are doing yourself, and other writers a big disservice.
Here are five reasons you should always said no to a potential client/freelance writing job:
If you've never hired a freelance writer, and are considering doing so for either one project or on and ongoing basis, asking yourself the right questions can go a long way with creating a successful client/writer relationship for any type of writing project you might have.

With so many different blogs on different subjects, things have felt too cluttered here to make much sense of. I've decided to remove all of the other blogs, including Raiders, disc golf, sports health and travel- instead my recent articles on those topics will be under the "recent work" category.
This site will be focused on writing only, with separate sites dedicated for Pacific Northwest travel (including Quintessential Northwest), a healthy living/self improvement site and possibly an Ireland focused site in the near future as well.
I've developed a new travel site specific to the Pacific Northwest. Check it out here: http://www.quintessentialnorthwest.com/
I plan on changing the focus of this site more specifically to writing and the various writing services I can provide and also include tips for other writers, while continuing to list some of my recent work on various topics here as well.
I also have plans for a new site focusing on healthy/wise living that will be coming as soon as I can come up with a good name. It will have a health/wellness focus with articles about natural healing, staying young and energetic, optimal nutrition and diet.
