What next for me…..

Sums it up nicely, had an idea, searched out my market, found the niche, aim for the bullseye, take the next step.

After the past two years of growth on www.footballwriting.blog it’s now time to take it to the next level. The last 24 months have been tough for freelance writers like myself who have seen websites they wrote for disappearing during the pandemic.

I lost two such sites that were paying me for my words and when you look through a Google search many haven’t had any articles uploaded for months suggesting they too have bitten the bullet.

My aim when I started this blog around three years ago was to set up a website solely for Sussex non-league football and that hasn’t changed, I’m just a year behind where I want to be but in the meantime have built a respectable brand and a growing contact book from all levels of the game.

I also have viewings consistently from all over the world and at times it really does surprise me where these words are read and I hope they continue to be a source of information and debate for everyone in lots of different countries.

With that in mind I need to make it work moneywise and from 1st March there will be a charge to read each piece I write. Now I’m not looking to make a million from this, just enough to get away from full time work again and into making football work for me.

The cost is going to be a simple 50p for each piece, you can’t even get a cup of coffee for that these days! I appreciate people might pick and choose what they read, I can’t argue with that but then that’s my job to keep the articles entertaining and with debate.

It will ask you to subscribe to read a piece but it’s set for a one time only 50p price so you aren’t tied into monthly or yearly pricing, you read what you want when you want.

As mentioned I do have a growing contacts book which I will delve into as often as I can to get some interviews out there as well to keep it fresh and different just to keep you coming back for more and then I can hit that aim of providing what I wanted when I first set out to do so.

I’m always open to ideas of topics to write about, feel free to suggest something at any time that takes your fancy, any piece can be a winner and I hope to expand my blog network to further work which might mean I am able to run a fully free and a paid for blog side by side but that’s for the future depending upon how successful this will be.

Thank you for reading and I hope you continue to do so.
