Writing for the Man

I recently began getting some jobs online, producing blogs for little companies and web content for people who need them to publicize their blogs. You would think that since I do my own writing for my own weblogs that this would be effortless, but not always so.

When you write for yourself, you pick topics you are interested in or at least feel you can do a decent job on in a brief amount of time. When someone sends you a list of subjects to write for, it can be on anything! Ever attempt to write six essays on doorknob hardware, each at the very least 500 words long? By the third one your fingers are tripping on the keyboard and you know you are going to begin giggling madly if you have to construct one more way to say doorknob hardware is amazing.

I like writing, don’t get me wrong. I started doing more of these because I could see without difficulty that the least complicated and most fun part of putting websites together for me was the writing. So getting this done for someone else and getting paid to do it seemed like an obvious solution to the lack of cash.

But somehow whenever I start up writing for one of my own blogs, let’s say about adjustable hole saws for my hardware blog, I can find some way to write about it wisely. At least, it feels clever to me. I was reading through the entry I did last month for my construction site on building a timber retaining wall and saw that my guidelines were all in order and everything appeared fine. But when somebody requested me to write a minor piece about Miami-Dade County Real Estate, I basically froze. I reckon it just proves that even if you can write, it is hard to write for the man.
