Does anyone have any ideas on how to get started with freelancing? I am thinking I want to go the magazine route but truthfully, will pursue anywhere...I have no idea what I am doing or even where to begin so any advice or resources would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Natalie: I'm in the same boat you are and curious if you have progressed much in your freelancing efforts? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I am so glad I found this, I just started freelancing myself. My first article will be in print January 2011. And I am still trying to figure it all out. So thank you for asking such a great question and thank you to all the others for the great and insightful answers.
that is great. Where are you getting it published at?

I know of an opportunity. If anyone lives in one of these cities, email me:
Berkeley, Charleston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Honolulu, L.A. - Inland Empire, Louisville, Memphis, Nashville, OKC, Raleigh, Seattle, Toronto, or Vancouver.
I dont live in the Inland Empire but I live in Orange County? would it apply to me? if yes please email at aysha.iqbal19@gmail.com

I believe they already have someone in Orange county. How close are you to Inland Empire? It's writing about kids activities and events in that area.
