Claiming the Title of Writer
I have stepped out on a limb here and have submitted a sample of original writing to a website that is an "article and content writing service."
Whether a client needs new content for a business website, a blog post, technical content or more, the site offers a pool of authors from which to choose. The site claims to do business with a variety of clients, including publicly traded corporations, e-commerce and social media sites, and much more.
When one signs up to be a registered author, before being allowed to browse the jobs/projects, the sample is submitted to the site. It will take up to a week for it the sample to be rated, which is shown on your profile. It determines the cost to the client and the pay to the author.
I have to admit that I am a little nervous as I await my "grade."
Based on the samples that I have read, intended for the clients to choose a level of writer, I would guess that I will be rated at a three-star level. It would do my heart good to see four-stars, however.
Whatever the result, I will work with the site and learn more about search engine optimization (SEO) and the such. It is time that I learn how to be a better writer in today's market.
