Stay Updated to survive

A freelancer’s life is most of the time prone to danger as there is a wide competition. There are a lot of new graduates passing out of the college every day and they all come to work life knowing better technology and are advanced. The technology changes might not be very diverse and immediate but the ideas to approach the tasks might take different forms. It doesn’t strike our mind when we work on the same thing; we need to keep our minds open to all the upcoming trends.

The difficult part of staying up to date is trying to learn everything that’s new. That’s when an individual tries to make a mistake.

Tips to stay updated:

You need to focus on one particular objective. Decide what’s best for you, what your passion is all about. How the market trend is rising and the benefits you gain out of it. Once you have streamlined your goals you can concentrate learning about that specific phenomenon.

Make sure you focus on the path to accomplish the goal every time you tend to get diverted. Dig to the core part where you feel the trends get changed on the technology you have in mind, and subscribe to it. This helps you filter out all the other noises from super Internet gateway. This type of subscription also reminds you, the times you get switched to other diversions.

Most of us would be aware:

In Order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different” – Coco Chanel

Give yourself a deadline to learn some topics, try implementing them so that you can always remember what you have done. Stay committed, you can make use of the time you allocate to the Coffee breaks, while you commute and the list goes on.

Take some small projects and work on it till you have the confidence to work independent. Initially it wouldn’t be interesting and you might feel lazy and lagging behind but after all that one day you can be sure that you are going to shine.

Keep trading knowledge. You can achieve this by archiving the notes you collect while browsing, saving your favorite links and going through them when you find your leisure time, taking a look at some reputed blogs, videos and social networking sites such as LinkedIn where you find the topic of your interest and get together with people of that group. To keep up with the progress in the field, it’s always best to identify the sources to use. It’s effective to attend conferences, trainings related to your objective which will kindle your thoughts and gives you fresh ideas. Talk to your colleagues or in forums where you think you can find people of your interest. Sharing your knowledge and gaining from them is the best exercise for attaining your focused objective.

Always have in mind the scope is global with many talented people and the comparison is huge. The intense of attraction by the clients towards you will be more when you stay current and updated. Make sure your resumes are updated when you are looking for projects. They speak for you and help you get more chances.

Interests of individuals keep changing with time. For example , An individual does business for about 20 years now and he has not updated enough to survive in the market it not only affects his growth but the entire network gets affected. He will not be able to pay the employees nor satisfy his own benefits he enjoyed earlier.

People get easily bored of the most common stuffs we see every day.

As a freelancer staying updated, can make you fit into the market changes anytime. The opportunities keep growing and you will be able to sustain for a long period of time. The advantage of being in this field is you will be able to work on multiple tasks and get a wide exposure.

Having said, you might also have a chance of owning a complete project having peers to complete the job, just because you have mastered the skill well before others. You will earn the respect of others being a leader.

Stated by the naturalists already:

It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” ― Charles Darwin, We must be flexible enough to learn and approach the path to our desire. The passion in us must keep growing and inspire us to finish what we have started with. It must be hand in hand and without them we might tend to lose the string where we holding on to.

While we wake up, the dreams in us should push us to stay excited boosting us to learn more and more. Learning will take you very less time than searching for clients to approach you. You ought to be wise to pick up the best choices to get rewarded out of it.

There’s a greater probability of finding jobs when you have prolonged connectivity to the work group you know. As the market trends are changing every day, it’s always wise to stay updated. To specify, a blogger can’t always write about one topic and stick on it. He/ She might lose readers then. For the first few instances it will stream praise-worthy but later on the comments and the views will reduce. The conception of projecting a particular thing must change with time. An individual’s creativity also plays a role in it. Not all bloggers get the most number of readers.

It’s not about being updated, but also projecting ourselves to the crowd outside. If there seem to be new possibilities sticking to your ideas people will rely on you. The Survival of the fittest always is applauded and gets plenty of shots. Hence as a Freelancer one must have in mind the set of rules they must make for themselves.

How To Become An Expert Blogger

A writer’s block is something which every writer faces one time or the other. There will be times when you might not have anything to write about and just keep sitting on front of the computer or the notepad and nothing will come to your mind. You might start worrying whether you will always have something to write about or not. Don’t worry there are plenty of things and topics in the world to write about and a writer’s block is a very common thing. The simple answer to the question: will you always have enough to write about? Is yes, provided you know what you are writing about. We just don’t mean the topic, we mean an in depth knowledge and understanding of the subject you are writing about. Remember knowledge and understanding are two different things and both complement each other. The easiest way to make sure that a writer always has something to write about is to keep the three Rs in mind: Read, Research and Reflect. If you have mastered these three Rs then you will not have to ask the above question.


As we have said before in all of our previous posts ‘a well-read blogger is a well-read blogger’ this means that, a blogger whose blog is well read is a blogger whose blogs are widely read. Therefore, set some time aside to read. Read books, newspapers, other blogs, magazines and basically anything you can lay your hand on to increase your understanding of things. Don’t be afraid to have your own view points and make them known. Every reader appreciates a different point of view. Reading other blogs can be a great advantage for any writer. It will give you an insight of designs, layouts, content, keywords, advertisements, SEO, RSS feed, Permalink, ease of navigation etc. that will help you build your own blog. In our next post in this segment, we will discuss in great detail about the same.


In our part II of the expert blogger post, we talked in detail about the important and use of research for a blogger. Your research will include the reach of your blog, what other are reading and what you need to get started. Research does not happen in a day, it takes time and like reading, it is a continuous process. Needless to say, your research will be based on your readings. One important thing to keep in mind when reading and researching is to not to be bogged down by the amount of information that will be deflected to you.


Once you feel that you are done researching and you have read up as much as you can, it is then time to reflect on your finding. Take this time to think in depth about what exactly do you want and will you achieve this by writing on the topic or the niche that you have selected. I find that the best way to do this is by sitting alone in front of a laptop or with your notepad and carefully jotting down things that come to your mind. This way it will be easier to draw order to chaos. Write about at least 20 post topics in your niche to get you started. Most writers have told me that most difficult thing to do is to think of a topic. If you have a topic in front of you then things become easier. Remember it is what you read and research that reflects in your writing.
