As a writer, do you need to have a website or blog?
It’s a question I’m asked pretty regularly by coaching clients, blog readers, and other freelance writers.
My response? Well, I can’t speak for all editors out there but, during my time fielding intern and blogger applications, and freelance queries, I always did the same thing.
If a website, blog, or Twitter URL did not appear as part of the writer’s email signature, I immediately googled their name so as to find it myself.
And if I didn’t find it?
I immediately questioned the abilities of the writer.
