This is the blog of the feature writing class at the University of San Francisco for Spring semester 2015. I'm leaving some of the old links up for awhile.
When I was hired by a jewelry company as the head blog writer early freshmen year of college, initially I was happy to gain the experience. I started writing 2-3 posts a week but was constantly nagged to write more and more, despite no compensation. After I started writing, I realized I was being exploited. My passion for writing was something that the jewelry blog needed and I stupidly gave it away for free! Cherish your writing, it is always valuable..i mean if it wasn't why couldn't they have written something blan on their own?
Nothing writing for free. For awhile. If it builds your portfolio. But as soon as possible, one moves on.mr
Meant "nothing wrong with"
agreed, everyone seems to be having to work for free these days. You have to have experience to get experience sadly.
