With the world fallen prey to the proverbial rat race, wanting a sustainable career option is on the highest priority list of any sane person.

As the traditional route goes, most people often aim for the 9-to-5 corporate hustle with a fixed salary, and a comfortable routine to rely on.

With income being an issue no more, they settle down and live their life in a limited way.

For others, usually the creatively inclined and adventurous folks, it can become extremely monotonous to have a fixed routine and work for someone else with limited freedom. It can leave them feeling unfulfilled and wanting more out of life.

Freelancing as a way to make a career out of your skills is a relatively old but unconventional idea. Some people will vouch for it blindly as a means to success while others will call it out for being pretentious and dismiss it.
It has become so popular today that there are various platforms especially dedicated to help freelancers connect to possible clients.

To make freelancing a success, it is best to not only follow your passion in the form of work but also find a market fit for your skills.

You can have multiple skills or you can be the master of one, either way, to be a freelancer, you should know how to create content yourself.

Content is the means of communication as we know it, and hence content writing has always been one of the most sought after skills in the market.

“Content is king.” - Bill Gates

As we all move to digital spaces with time, the need for content on digital platforms has increased greatly. 

The better your communication skills, grammar, and passion for writing, the better the scope for you to make the most out of freelancing as a content writer.

Best reasons why freelancing can be a sustainable lifestyle choice for a content writer:


#1 - Great Earning scope

Let's be honest, we all want to earn more than enough money to be able to live freely.

We want to be able to make our own choices, and be able to afford those choices when we make them.

Content writing has an immense scope of generating high income, while also having the flexibility to scale it up or down as per your own needs. You get to decide if you want to pursue it part-time, full-time, or even outsource work as per your convenience.


#2 - High demand in all industries

High-quality content builds authority for a business in the market, helping the brand in establishing a voice of its own.

It helps in communicating about the business, and hence directly impacts the growth by increasing conversion rate of the customers.

As a service, content writing can be offered in any industry, with options to work on diverse projects. There will always be an abundant demand for content writing freelancers in the market.


#3 - Freedom to work from any location

As a content writer, all you need to have is good internet connection, power connection, and the device you choose to write on- laptop, mobile, tablet, anything really. It also gives you full control over how you manage your time and money. You can finally take some time out for yourself, your partner, family and friends, instead of meeting work deadlines all the time.

You can work from home, or as a digital nomad while travelling, or anything in between. Sounds like a dream, right?


#4 - Save money on various traditional work expenses

You do not need to report to a certain location to work, hence saving you money spent on

  • commuting- public transportation, or if you own a vehicle then all the costs in incurs
  • work-wear- your office attire that follows the dress code, which needs to always be presentable, and can't always be comfortable
  • meals- when you can't pack a lunch with you to the office, and
  • miscellaneous expenses- like going out with colleagues for meetings, etc. 


#5 - Being your own boss

In a job, you have to answer to your seniors, whether you like it or not. In freelancing, you have the right to choose who you want to work with by filtering out your clients. It is an equal relationship.

You get to say ‘no’ when your client is not cooperative, and you can set the rules according to your expectations. It ensures the quality of professional relationships as well as work ethics.

I believe this is the ultimate reason of all.


With all the freedom that comes with freelancing, a content writer can easily write up a beautiful, sustainable lifestyle for themselves.

It is the best solution to live an independent, adventurous and abundant life.

So, what do you think? Are you ready to take a leap as a freelancer into the content writing world?
