As a reclusive I can say: I’m only human. Occasionally I do need contact with human beings, as only to proof that I love my reclusive lifestyle. It is also said that people who live as recluses are those who are wounded, emotionally immature or suffer from some kind…

Someone stole my content

Someone stole my content

I have this love and hate relationship with the internet. I love it because it opens a world of knowledge to me, I hate it because I always have to research again to find out if the information is genuine and up-to- date. I love it because it lets me meet people I otherwise would have never met before. I hate it because the algorithms only feed me based on my behaviour and searches. I love it because it inspires…

And some of them finally start to write about it on the…

How to set your Freelance Writing Rates

How to set your Freelance Writing Rates

I do not know about you, but I struggle my way through my hourly rate as a writer. Up till recently I charged either per word or per article and it didn’t cover the cost of research and such. All the administrative duties that come with running a business and all the unpaid hours e-mailing prospects just made it difficult to keep track with my bills. In the process of determining my rate I look around on the internet, freelance…
