Why online writing?
I’ve had a long-running passion for words, and freelancing allowed me to practice the thing I like. Before this, I worked as a projects coordinator in a national government ministry. The role was taxing, I hardly had any time for myself, and I had to wait an entire month for my pay. I needed flexibility, so I quit and went into freelancing.

Freelancing helps one to grow pretty fast because you come in charge for the growth of your income and career. I write for Potentash, a blog that publishes fiction, technology, finance, entertainment, lifestyle features and product reviews. Since joining the working platform in 2016, I have grown in my own writing and editing skills as well as evolutionwriters in the general process of content creation.
