I've been a big fan of Elna Cain since I first started thinking about becoming a freelance writer. Her blog has continued to be one of my go-to resources now that I've been freelancing for years.
When Elna reached out to me about becoming a contributing writer to Freelancer FAQs, I was so surprised and delighted! And, of course, I said yes! In June, I contributed my first three guest posts to Freelancer FAQs.
Scroll below for the full roundup, and be sure to check them out in their entirety on the Freelancer FAQs website.
