Is this normal? Five years in and I still don't know what I'm doing.

    I've technically been freelance writing since 2015. I say 'technically' because I never deliberately chose this profession. I just slowly sunk into it as I scrabbled for gigs to support my backpacker lifestyle. The write life chose me.

    It's gone pretty well, all things considered, especially as I don't need much to live on.

    But over the past year in particular, I've been exploring ways to grow my skills and business, and I feel like I'm only just now figuring out what's going on.

    I was a grunt worker, churning out blogs for peanuts for years, and I had very little clue where they went or why I was writing them. All I knew was that 1 blog = $8. Score.

    It was only within the past several months I got a more solid grasp on the whole concept of copywriting and digital marketing. You know, how the Internet works, and all that. Even the difference between content writing and copywriting wasn't clear to me until maybe a year ago.

    Anyway, after doing some research and self-improvement, I started branching out into copywriting and trying to work on a personal brand, but I just feel like such a newb, sometimes.

    And nothing makes sense.

    Freelancing can be sometimes very complicating. Considering all the perks of being a freelancing, it can sometimes be very suffocating. Growth can be tough and time management is hard so you think what's happening. And it happens all the time. Talking to people, being social and open about what's going on in your professional life helps a lot. Having a proper routine is very necessary.

    A young graduate will focus on answering this question in relation to their future and choosing the right career. A person starting retirement will ask the question in the hope of doing something that has value in their life. A young mother recently divorced will be asking this question in the hope that she can find an answer that will enable her to survive another day.

    In general, an editor is a difficult profession. I encountered this at the university when I finalized my dissertation. And then I decided to use additional resources, since nothing worked for me. When I saw the final version after the cheap assignment writing service I realized that I did the right thing. I'm not an editor at all.

    Copywriting and digital marketing are very broad fields to excel in. It is good
    when you still found new things while learning for more than 5 years. It means
    that you are grooming and polishing yourself instead of ignoring new things.
