writing site. It has turned into more of a directory for me. I often look there to check sites I haven't been on in a while.
These are the listing pulled from that site that I use the most:
fireHOW is a
newer site to write "How to" articles. Once you join their WPP plan they pay per month for earning over
articles need to be at least 400 words long. You can earn money up front for
writing a contract articles on predetermined article titles. You also earn money
from rating articles and contests. Helium will pay through Paypal when your earnings reach $25. They also have
a market place where you an earning amazing amounts by getting a freelance
article. $12 to $280 per article on just the first page!
Those two listings are my favorites. Looking over the writing site, I see some changes that need to be made as things have changed since I have made that list. However it still a great place to start and I'll be making changes to it soon. It take a lot of time to check all the sites and changes. Now when I used to be able to do my day job and write online I had a lot more time and made more money. Now that my day job is more time consuiming, and pays much better, I haven't had as much time as I should and there for made less. Most importantly I'm still making money online.
When I took my new job, Ehow was the best online writing site. However they felt it was time to move on and had writer either remove their article or bought our articles. I sold out. I had to remake my library all over again without using anything from what I sold. I still find that hard to do as some of those articles where my heart pouring out on the page. It was a nice payout and just what my family needed for me to make the job change.
Still today many people are amazed to find that I'm a writer. I'm not the best speller and I'm sure grammar experts will go crazy with my articles, but I enjoy writing. Writing online has done a lot more then make me money. I learn a little more when I write and when someone points out an embarssing mistake. I have also made many online friends, some I have come to care for very much. For me the friendship is priceless.
Earning money online is possible and it doesn't need to cost you anything but time. Anyone can learn to write online. All you need to do is try. Fellow writers are often happy to help. Spell check and grammar checks are easily found all over the web. People can write about almost anything. I figure this is my kind of retirement plan. If I keep writing I should have thousands of good articles and I can even writing more when I'm retired and hopefully sitting on the porch in the sunlight.
