In a world where journalism is constantly changing the internet has made it possible for the average person to blog about their daily activities as well as share interesting information on a variety of topics. My path started while taking college courses and looking for a way to practice my writing and research skills. In the process I found some really useful social blogging sites on the web that had an active community of fellow writers from all types of experience.
Once I got started I was able to really expand my subject matter to include things related to worldwide trends or developments happening on a local level. Now I like to show other people how to find sites to write for and other tips.
You can share your story
After I learned how to make pages on the internet I started to share my story with the community of writers and the interesting thing about that experience is that everyone had a similar journey of how they got started blogging.
There are many individuals who have made a full-time earning from their blogs. It is exciting to know that anyone can bring their ideas to the web and make a difference.
Most content farms will allow free sign-up and all that is needed is a valid email address, user name and password. It is that simple. The place I found most of my writing gigs in the beginning was on Craigslist, but there are many other job boards for writers where you can earn upfront pay for your article.
Compensation really varies depending on the type of site you choose to use. I prefer to have more freedom to write and create content that is editable. Plus I like being able to add affilliate links or earn from PPV (pay-per-view).
After several years of writing online I have realized how important it is to specialize in one type of subject.
Finding Your Voice
It is fun to write on a multitude of topics but it is harder to concentrate on one area, but you will find as you start using social blogging platforms that it will be easier to get views if you write about things you have an interest in or are knowledgeable about.
So before you write your first page make sure you are familiar with the topic because it will be easier to get your foot in the door of some really authoritative news sites. Being able to build a byline where others can find you and follow your stories is a great benefit.
