This week’s featured writer knows her stuff—from literary concepts to how to make it as a freelance blogger in multiple niches. Jeanette embodies what this website is all about: that if you’re a good writer interested in multiple fields, there’s no reason you can’t be successful writing about all of them. Read on to find out how this blogger makes it work, writing for fields as varied as engineering and podiatry.
1. What is your name and where are you located?
I’m Jeanette the Writer and I’m located in Dallas, TX.
2. Please tell us about your blogging!
I run my own blog called Wordy Wednesday where I explore a new word or literary concept each week. I am the primary blogger for the Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, a podiatry clinic in Ohio. I am also a ghostwriter for several corporate blogs from engineering firms to carpet cleaners to cookie delivery businesses.
3. Why do you choose to write in multiple niches?
I happened to find a freelance opportunity with a marketing firm which specifically hired me to write blogs for a wide variety of their clients. I would do an hour of research and spend another hour writing and editing the article. I also have my own wide variety of clients in industries such as HR, real estate, and even scuba diving. I guess you could say multi-niche writing chose me.
4. Do you blog and write as a hobby, as a part-time job, or do you do it for full-time income?
This is my full-time job, but not every blog I write is a paid piece. I have my own blog each week that I’ve turned into a video blog, but it’s not monetized. I also regularly pitch and publish articles for various writing and freelance-related websites.
5. Do you blog on your own platform, for companies, for publications, or for a mixture of these?
All of the above. I have been published all over the web as a ghostwriter and corporate blogger. I also blog on my own platforms and my posts appear on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and my personal website. My work also appears in printed form in the magazines Rare Luxury Living and Podiatry Management Magazine.
6. Where can we read more of your writing?
I have been published in various places, but my favorite blogs are the ones on freelancing and writing. These topics are close to my heart and I am very fortunate to have been published in several places.
7. Why do you believe multi-niche writing is beneficial?
When it comes to copywriting and ghost blogging, it’s almost a necessity to have the ability to write in multiple niches. I was able to learn because I had an opportunity with a marketing firm. Other freelancers may take a more direct path to clients and work in more specific niches. But working in multiple niches provides opportunities for growth and should be encouraged. I experience a variety of projects and use different skill sets on each assignment. This keeps me engaged and always honing my researching and writing skills.
