freelance writer

I am looking at starting my own freelancing writing business. I am a student and want to create it within the next few months. Can you think of any great names to call my business and what would be my usp?

I guess its best to create a website and promote my work on it. what do you think?

what areas should I cover as a writer?

Its for you to decide what your usp is, people can't tell you that, and if you are a writer you should be able to come up with a name eh?

keep the blog going, if you get serious traffic then you can look at other options.....

The best thing to do would be to create and submit articles to popular blogs and magazines. I have found that this is the best way as they want to see evidence that you can do it. I'm looking freelance writing as well but it's pretty difficult to break in.

Would you be interested in writing for an online blog I am looking to start? It is totally concept at the moment, but something I have been interested in for a while.
