    Hi:
    I’ve been a freelance writer for the last 13 years. I didn’t set out to do so as well, but started when my oldest was in kindergarten, and now she is a freshman in college. It took me a while to admit that I even worked because I wasn’t paying for daycare, buying suits or getting regular paychecks. But once I started logging in several hours each week and listening to the woes of women who worked out of their homes and still didn’t take my work seriously, I thought, the heck with it. I also have work commitments, in addition to the volunteer hours I squeeze in.

    Anyway, I have built up a pretty long list of clients and have several clips with my byline. But I don’t have a website or a blog. I don’t know how to go about getting online work. I’m finding that this may be necessary as the print publishing industry is dying. Any suggestions on where I should look first? E-zines? Content sites? Blog sites?

    Thank you,
    Laurie
