A freelance writer often works from home. Sometimes, especially when first starting out, it can be nice to have a “real job” that lets you work from home. That is, a job that pays an hourly wage or something a little more stable than freelance writing does. The problem is that this area is flooded with spam, scams, and just plain worthless information. You’ve probably seen the ads in the paper or even on the side of the road “Make six figures working from home!” which are, of course, scams to prey on the uninformed.
I recently stumbled across a fairly recent CNN article that mentions some actual, real life, companies that offer various telecommuting or work from home positions. I don’t like to link to things I haven’t looked at yet myself, so I won’t post individual links here until I have a chance to look at them, but if you are interested, here is a link to the original CNN article.
