Have you faced this dilemma?
I haven’t, but I was thinking about this the other day. What would I do if I didn’t believe in what someone wanted to write about? If I had a moral stance against it? Would I do the work, trying to keep my personal opinions to myself? Would that even be an easy thing to accomplish?
The decision I made for my freelance life was not to write for anyone, or on any topic, that I do… Click To Tweet Anything that seems completely wrong to me is off limits. I want to be proud of the writing I do, of the projects I work on.
Also, I do not wish to promote anything that I do not believe in. For instance, I see many affiliate links on sites I visit. I wonder as to whether the people who own the blogs believe in the product or service they are sending people to. If they have tried it themselves, and know it is worthwhile.
So when I decided to add some affiliate links to this blog, I knew they must have something to do with products I like and people I find inspiring. They must lead to something I believe in.
What is your stance on this? Or, your experience. Please let us know in the comments below, or take a few minutes to email me. I always respond to emails.
