Freelance Writers Appreciation Week

Freelance Writers Appreciation Week falls during the second week of February and celebrates those writers who toil ceaselessly to provide companies, websites, blogs, and libraries with the content they need. Without writers, people wouldn’t be able to enjoy the top ten lists on their favorite blogs, the latest news, or even learn about their favorite holidays.

These writers work long hours, often alone in a room, and have to contend with deadlines, word counts, and coffee-induced heartburn. That’s why we feel that everyone who enjoys reading — whether that reading is done through a book, a magazine article, or a blog — should take the time to thank their favorite writer or at least buy them a cup of coffee.

The History of Freelance Writers Appreciation Week

This holiday is one that was first created in 2013, but who created it remains unknown. We’re just going to assume that this holiday was created by some overworked freelance writers who decided to create a holiday so that one day they would receive appreciation for the hard work they do on a daily basis all year long.
