Happy Sunday to 5,693 motivated writers 👋🏼 

How’s everyone doing? Hello again! Ugh. Tech sucks sometimes

I’m so sorry if you missed the update last week. There was an error in the email provider and the update only went out to about half of your. 

It was a goodie, too. We had over 60 opps (!!) and I think it was the biggest round-up I’ve ever shared. 🙃  Give it a read here

But this is a new week. Onwards!

I came across this great thread about freelacne writing tool when looking for opps this week.

You know I’m a sucker for some good tech (when it works). The thread has a bunch of that. It's always good to see how different free writers manage their business.

Everything from Accounting, Invoicing, Meeting tools. Some new ones here I’ve not heard of before that I’ll be checking out! See if you like anything here

1️⃣ Resource of the week 

Work from anywhere, any time: Marker Content is hiring!

I'm always interested some of these different ways that businesses and publishers try to get their content out... and what it means for writers. This is a great opportunity

Marker reached out and have an interesting value prop. 

They help writers submit their work to their library, get paid, and manage payments. It sounds pretty flexible! Marker sells these pieces to agencies, publishers, small businesses & web developers and they're growing their writing team. 

Last time we featured Marker, there was a really good response. A bunch of you signed up!
