Freelancers: should you ever work for free? It’s a difficult question, there’s no doubt about that, and it’s a topic that I’m super passionate about for oh so many reasons. If you checked out my story, you probably have a good idea what this post is about. I recently received an email asking me to write a considerable piece for free. It referred to a famous influencer who they said wrote for them for free multiple times (which I discovered later was only once and to promote a personal project), and proceeded to make me feel like I was lucky to “get my voice out there” and contribute simply “for the joy of sharing content,” insinuating that contributors more famous than me were doing it, so I should do it for free too. It wasn’t the first time I’ve been approached for something like this. As a freelance writer and photographer, it’s an issue I face on the regular, and it occurred to me that many freelancers out there will or have likely faced the same grueling question: Should I do this for free? So, you Google it. Articles pop up like, “Why Writing for Free is Better than Writing for $20,” and, “Why You Need to Write for Free,” and it kills me. Yes, I’ve done it, and I occasionally still do. There’s a time and place for it, but I’m frugal with those I accept. I always ask myself these questions before accepting an unpaid offer: 1) Will it help me explore a new niche I’d otherwise be unable to infiltrate? 2) Would it be a valuable learning opportunity? 3) Will it do wonders for my marketing and outreach? If I answer yes, I might do it for free. But, it’s important to know your worth! You deserve to be paid for so many reasons. One being that you’re providing a service that will likely benefit the company you’re contributing to and you should be compensated appropriately, just like accountants, hair stylists, social media strategists, and the like are paid for their work. Not only that, but think about your fellow freelancers. They want to make a living doing what they love too, and if we’re offering our expertise for free, that lowers employer’s payment expectations and hurts others’ chance to do what they love. Something to think about.

Utah is the only place I know that has so much cool stuff already that they nonchalantly put a volcano next to a major highway and didn’t even put a sign or anything to mark it. I stopped by here for sunrise, and it was funny to watch people pass by on their way to work, seemingly not caring at all that they’re literally driving past a volcano. Just an ordinary day for your local Utahns.

For the past week several weeks, I have been making moves that I want to be proud of. Even though some of my work doesn’t end up on social media, it has still made me feel fulfilled in many ways. As time goes on, I’ll be able to share what I’ve been up to. Stay tuned. 🤙🏼

Cliffs and waterfalls. As many of you know by now. Faroe Islands rains a lot and you’ll see a great show while driving the Faroese roads of water falls coming from every where. This cliff is very special because of the many waterfalls and bird life you can find. #roamthefaroeislands

Rainy day vibes | 📷 @lfhbento | Whenever it rains, it leaks in my car. But not too badly because it only leaks into a cavity in the steering wheel. (Who knew the steering wheel was a great receptacle) So after a rainy day, I'll forget to empty the wheel and when I try to make a turn, I get a cold bucket of water dumped on my lap. 👌Despite that, the rain ain't too bad. the sound of the raindrops on the metal of my car makes a very nice white noise that makes you feel like you're sleeping in a ⛺ and one with 🌲.

Sometimes the conditions are less than favourable and with need to keep moving, you don’t always get the shots you had pictured. What can ya do! 🌚 We wanted to swim in the pool at Angels Billabong but after an intense rainfall the normally aqua blue tidal pool had a ton of dirt and debris clouding the water and creating this icky brown colour. Maybe next time! Haha. • • • #brokenbeach #exploremore #exploretocreate #liveauthentic #takemoreadventures #nakedplanet #ourplanetdaily #instagood #epic_captures #angelsbillabong #wildernessculture #wildernessculture #optoutside #destinationearth #lifeispeople #lookslikefilm #visualscollective #liveoutdoors #nusepenida #travelstroke #artofvisuals #letsgosomewhere #ourplanetdaily #bali #awesupply #livefolk #loveofyadventure #goexplore #bali #indonesia

Back to one of our favorite places in Southern California. This photo is from our visit 2 years ago, this place is a photographers paradise! We love all the vintage vibes here with all the island cottages and the magnificent casino. This island has served as Hollywood’s playground over the years and where Marilyn Monroe was discovered in our Norma Jean days at her first job ever as a taffy puller downtown Avalon, Catalina. Stay tuned on @boboandchichi for more updates! 🖤 . . . . . #widenyourworld #pathport #artofdestinations #getlostnow #traveladdicts #lifeofadventures #borntotravel #travelcommunity #globetrotters #shewhowanders #wandergram #exploringtheglobe #awesupply #traveladdicted #living_destinations #postcardplaces #travelphotooftheday #travelforlife #exploringglobe #letsflyawayto #instatraveller #travelgrams #justtravel #travelaround #travelingourplanet #exploreourearth #passportcollective #travelandexplore #passionfortravel #travellust

"You're really lovely Underneath it all" _No Doubt (Underneath It All)_ ➡️Underneath it all: in reality; actually. _ 📷: @hari.abri 🏞: Tuk Mudal Cempaka, Bumijawa region, Southern Tegal, Central Java. _ "Tuk Mudal" (Javanese): Spring water bursting out so strong that it creates current from underneath. Initially, Tuk Mudal was built as a water reservoir for Cempaka Village. With its clear & fresh spring water, the locals realize its potential thus developing it as a destination for tourists.
