About Gary McLaren

Gary McLaren

Gary McLaren

I am a digital entrepreneur and author living in Auckland, New Zealand with my wife and family.

Originally from New Zealand, I lived for many years in Asia. In 2009, I returned to New Zealand to live in Christchurch, several months before the city was devastated by two strong earthquakes. I relocated my home and business to Auckland in 2013.

My very first website was Worldwide Freelance Writer, which I started in 1999. Today, thousands of writers receive my Worldwide Freelance newsletter and use our database of writing markets.

I am very passionate about writing, blogging, and working as an online entrepreneur. I have been earning a living online, full-time, for 11 of the past 13 years.

Over the past 17 years, I have developed considerable experience in running an online business. My areas of expertise include newsletters and email marketing, building niche websites, running membership sites, and affiliate marketing.

In addition to this blog, you may like to read my posts about writing and publishing at WritersUnplugged.com. I have written and published a number of books including A Quick Guide to Social Media for Writers, The Indie Author’s Guide to Publishing Ebooks and The In-flight Magazines Report.
