How do you begin a freelance writing career outside of HubPages?

    Hi there, I just joined HubPages about three days ago and I have published three hubs. I'm excited to get the opportunity to write whatever I want and earn money at the same time.

    However, I don't want HubPages to be my only source of writing income. I graduated from college a year ago with a BA in English and I competed an editorial internship at a print magazine. Since then, I have not been able to find a full time job so very recently, I decided to try freelance work.

    My question is this: How do you go about selling your articles to websites, magazines, etc? I only have four or five articles that have actually been published in a print magazine and that's about it.

    So do y'all have any advice for building a lucrative freelance writing career? Any information would be greatly appreciated! smile
