The Country-Centric Nature of This Blog And Other Resources for Americans

Just in case you haven’t stopped by to read our “About Us” page or are just a new visitor to the blog, I should make this clear. This blog is meant for Canadians. There are many, many resources out there for international writers and in particular American writers. I don’t want to compete with any of them, the whole purpose of this blog is to post job leads that Canadians can apply to.

I know this limits my audience and ad revenues but I don’t really care about that. It’s a great reward when I get e-mails from people who have landed contracts or jobs from their introduction to them on this site. That being said, if you are American please feel free to still use this site, just be aware that there are some better resources out there for you including:

freelancewritinggigs.com
This network of blogs and job listings are what got me thinking about this kind of service for Canadians. Tip of the hat to the people who deserve it. I got my first larger gig through postings on this site.

Anne Wayman aboutfreelancewriting.com
Love her blog posts, articles, and leads roundups that she publishes a few times a week.

For the record, I don’t use the above sites to gather leads. I go straight to the source to get ones that I think are viable for Canadian consumption. I hope all of you enjoy the site and please let me know what else you would like to see on it.

  1. Just to chime in to say that I follow this blog specifically because it is Canada-centric. We CDNs need resources such as this, because it can be frustrating to see so many great gigs on US-only sites. Sometimes there’s overlap, but rest assured this blog IS a valuable resource for CDN freelancers.

    Glad to hear it Scott – it will stay that way. I’ve considered doing another blog for US writers but think that market is well-served already.
