Having the opportunity to do freelance writing is cool. Writing, as I have expressed before, is my passion. The passion drives my purpose–opportunity of expression while making a difference in others lives. However, in the world of freelance writing, as is in other types of work, it is not always ideal. There are times–a lot of times–when we become “content machines” simply pumping out technical, or otherwise, generic information to make ends meet.
With that being said, it is refreshing to happen upon a client where the opportunity to create–really create–quality content is available. This happened to me lately. It was by happenstance I stumbled upon Ad Astra Traffic.
Carson Brackney, founder of Ad Astra had commented on a blog post at one of my favorite sites, The Freelance Writing Jobs Network and I like what he had to say, so I checked out his blog. It was there I found out about Ad Astra and its up-and-coming debut, October 13, 2009. There was an invitation for writers to apply, so I did.
I was very excited to be accepted on the Ad Astra team and found site access for writers very user friendly. Everything you need is there. Available assignments, delivery guide instructions, and invoicing.
My first assignment with Ad Astra was way cool. I enjoyed the topic and the various approaches I was able to take with the articles assigned. Payment was prompt–the next day after deliverables and invoice sent.
As I got into it, I began to realize what an opportunity it is to work with Carson Brackney and Diana Penna, co-founder of Ad Astra. This Web site content writing site may be new, but the founders are not new to the business.
I just wanted to take time to let my world know about Ad Astra Traffic–seriously–if you need your Web site updated, started, or other promotional content vamped check out the site.
Until later, see you around the path!
