I've been writing online for eight years and full-time for three. From that, I've learned to write lighter pieces during times of stress. When I'm already carrying heavy burdens, the last thing I need is serious or controversial topics. I can't take it. And that's the beauty of freelancing, and especially blogging.

I might write about holidays, crafts, children or poetry--guaranteed to decompress. Freelance Tip Write Lite on Heavy Stress Days
