The future of content on the web – content that gets discovered, creates value, and builds audiences – is not cheap text cranked out by content farms. It's high quality, editorial and entertainment created by experienced journalists and passionate bloggers. The future is a social media world, where humans are the arbiters of quality, and search algorithms reward sharing and human readability. The Internet means publishers should no longer be confined to the limits of in-office staff, nor should they be forced to burn fuel to put reporters on the ground around the world. Creative talent lives everywhere; it can and should work from wherever it lives. And any quality publisher should have access to it. Though we may live far apart, the web can bring freelancers together into a community whose value far exceeds the sum of its members. This is the freelance revolution. The Freelance Writers Meetup is a community of freelance writers who are changing the way content is created, published and distributed. Quality is king. Freelance is the future.
