Until now it really amazes me how much my blogging here has contributed to my freelance writing career. I never imagined that blogging would get me to where I am now as a writer.

If you will remember, last February I did a featured post on this website called, Raket.ph. Basically, it’s an online directory of freelance professionals or “raketeers” in the country. Companies use this directory to search for independent contractors whom they can hire for certain tasks. You can read the complete feature here.


Since then, I’ve received several offers from companies to apply for their job openings and from these I can honestly say that Raketeers really do get legit job offers through the site. The site continues to grow and it’s exciting to see how it will improve from what it is now.

Anyway, I thought that after doing the feature on Raket.ph that it would be the last I’d hear from them. As it turns out, I was wrong.

A few weeks ago, I got a surprise email from Raket.ph’s CEO and I initially thought his email would be about another blog partnership. However, it was for a “raket” instead. Because he thought I did a great job with the blog post I did for them, he decided to hire me to join their team as a writer. Yet another job offer I didn’t even apply for.

I was so pleasantly surprised! It was totally unexpected. Not only will this give me another source of income, it’s also going to be a way for me to help out other independent contractors like myself. I’ve always tried to help out other freelance professionals through the stories of my experiences that I get to share here on my blog. Being a writer for Raket.ph will be another avenue for me to continue doing that in a larger scale.

So you guys who are aspiring to be writers too, use your blog well to showcase what you can do. You never know who you will encounter as a result. You never know who’s reading what you write. They might turn out to be a future client as well.

So far, I’ve already written a couple of articles for Raket.ph and they’re due to come out real soon. I’ll be sharing them on my Facebook page, Twitter and Google+, so do follow me if you don’t want to miss the announcement. I, of course, invite you to create your own Raket.ph account and check their blog regularly for my articles. Thanks guys!
