Freelance Writer Tips : How To Write An Article With The Topic You Are Not Familiar With?

Are you familiar with the topic? (via pexel)

It looks like I will write about freelance writer more often on this blog. Since I don’t have other interesting topics, it leads me to make a niche for it. Anyway, I have been a freelance writer for the last two years, but I fairly confess that I just master a few topics like digital marketing, technology, lifestyle, and hobby. How do I deal if the project from client excludes my expertise? Something like medicine, economic, company, fashion or girly things is such a troublesome topic for me.

As a freelancer, I barely know whether the project I apply relate to an easy topic. In some cases, clients post a very limited information about the project. The freelancers will be surprised by the killer topic after getting approval. It also happened to me. I was offered to write something about an erotic article. Of course, I gave the courtesy to turn it down. However, what if the topic still makes sense but you are not familiar with it?

Pros and Cons Being Part-Time Freelance Writer

Do you want to be a part-time freelance writer? (via lifehack)

It’s been more than a year since I dived into the world of a freelancer. I lacked money back then. The salary as an office worker was insufficient to live in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. So, I ended up to be a part-time freelance writer. Even though initialized by a lot of rejections from the clients, I kept building a perfect portfolio in writing by any means until I got my first project, writing product description for a printing company. I was so happy and impassioned since writing was my hobby and I would be paid for it. 

After getting some projects, the problems came up later. I didn’t have enough time to meet the deadline. I had to work in the office during the day and become a night creature doing my freelance projects. Coupled with poor time-management, I started to shatter my focus and stole time while working. Everything was disorganized!

My Personal Experience Ordering the Service of “Pijat Profesional Go Massage”

Some of you have probably heard information about Go-Jek. However, Go-Jek application does not only have online ojek service but also have lots of other services. For instance, Go-Massage Indonesia which provides the calling service of professional health massage in your home. Well, what a coincidence, few days ago I have ordered the service of “pijat profesional Go Massage”. My body feels so exhausted after returning from a business trip in Kalimantan. Yet, since I am so lazy to go to the masseuse, finally I prefer to use Go Massage gojek.

“Pijat profesional Go Massage” is not a weird massage service. You don’t think of erotic massage because all the masseuses of Go massage itself isn’t an improper person. Based on the information I found on everywhere and from Go Massage website, all the masseuses are professional with at least 2-year experiences in spa & wellness. Furthermore, when you choose Go Massage service in Go-Jek application, you’ll be offered by four options among others are full body massage; full body massage and scrub (lulur); full body massage and face pressure totok wajah; and full reflexology. But, since I only needed a massage on the feet and hand, then at that time I chose full reflexology.
