I put a tweet out a few days ago about being available to hire as a writer, writing about WordPress.
Had a few nibbles, rather than fill Twitter with info about it, it made sense to post what I offer here on LyrWP.
Why offer writing services now?
The idea came about as I’m getting married in October this year and could do with additional income for the occasion (getting hitched isn’t cheap!).
Plus I do love writing about bits and pieces, and I find it incredibly relaxing, stick the old earphones in, tune in to something, drum & bass usually (much to the chagrin of my future wife!).
What can I offer in terms of writing?
I’m a no-nonsense kind of guy and prefer writing from a consumer point of view. Mainly as I am one, I’m not a developer so can’t comment on coding, etc.
What I can offer is reviews of products, such as themes, plugins, services, and such.
- I will not fluff up a product if I think it’s not to a decent standard.
- If there are flaws and I can find them, I will mention them.
- I will, of course, mention the plus points if a theme/plugin/service has some.
- Make recommendations on what could be improved or nice to haves for WordPress products.
With that in mind you want to know the financial aspects, right?
I think a fair rate, considering the length of detail I go into is $0.15 per word.
Might be too costly for some and perhaps too cheap for others, (I can literally hear people saying you should charge more).
Heck, in the future, I may well do. For now, though I will be charging $0.15 per word.
Here are some things to remember about my service
You don’t pay upfront. I wouldn’t expect you to.
Once we have agreed on a topic and general feel, I can get to work on creating something for you.
If you like what you read, you’re free to publish it once I’ve been paid of course!!!!
The content is yours, do with it what you wish. If you want to link back to me cool, if not no worries.
If you don’t like what I have put together, I reserve the right to use the content on my own blog, no questions asked.
That’s fair as I can be.
Get in touch?
If you’d like to reach out and have a chat about an idea you have for your WordPress blog, please drop me a line using the form below. I’d love to hear from you!
*Please note, I will not write reviews of themes/plugins/services purely to make affiliate revenue, no top 20 best themes for ABC. That’s not my style, if you’re after something like that, look elsewhere.
