    How do you pick a niche market when freelance writing?

    I’ve been freelance writing for nearly 7 years now. At first I started out trying to do –everything- and later learned that it’s better if I zone in on one or two niches. I currently do freelance blog articles and web content. I also write my own eBooks. Those are the two niches I stick to...
