I decided to edit this post and shared some more clarity about the topic. When I wrote it, I just wanted to share my opinion regarding the subject matter in connection with the questions asked by my trainee. That night, one of my trainees asked me what is exactly the reason why I love writing?
Actually, it is out of topic because we are tackling customer service management, I never knew he was reading some of my works. And he bombarded me, with so many questions about writing and online writing.
Is it a Good Source of Income?
Online writing to set the record straight is not an easy way of earning money just like what the others are thinking. Why? Because you need to consider the following keys, it’s not writing things that come from your rambling minds. If you want to try it as a part-time or full-time job whichever you prefer. You must remember these:
Basic things to know before you decide to work Online:
Research: If you decide to pass or bid an article to different writing sites, there are certain requirements from the clients you need to achieve. It is best if you do a lot of research for the topics, for the keywords, and for accurate information. Do not forget to ask permission from the sites and links you want to use and include them in your content if they allow you to use their contents for reference.
Study: Yes, you read it right! You need to study. I consumed 6 long hours in front of my computer not just reading and writing. Lots of my time used for studying how the content move in net. If I stumble to one of the sites, I am becoming more observant, with their writing style, grammar, interconnection with different bloggers, keywords use, style and layout. If you visit my About Page one of my way of learning is to listen, hear and read the skills of others.
Blogging is a perfect tool to enhance and develop your skills. There are sites and blogs where there is no hassle in sharing your words but you must have time to interact and share your opinions and comments on some of the topics with whom you find your passion and expertise. Blogging helps to develop and enhance your writing style, I can assure you that 100%.
And lastly, have a heart and passion to READ, READ, and READ… Do not just give time to read lots of information around the net. You MUST love reading it will become your edge for the times you feel satiated and find it boring.
For me, writing is not just a source of my extra budget but also a form of relaxation. I can share anything without tiring my mouth to talk and make a chit chat with some of my friends. It is my internal way out of all the things coming from my rambling mind. The best part of it, it suits a mother like me who wanted to spend lots of time with my child.
If you asked me, is it a good source of income? the answer depends on You.
