Do you have a passion for writing? Would you like to make more money? If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions then you have come to the right place.
In this article, I will show you the benefits of writing online and how anyone, regardless of writing or computer skills, can be successful by writing a blog for money. I will also look at some major concerns facing individuals and provide a solution to these concerns.
Writing Online … Obstacles To Overcome
What’s stopping you from writing and providing content on a blog? If you are like me, I could answer this question with a number of reasons that I am sure would be no different than yours. So what are the major obstacles?
1.) No blog or knowledge in building one
2.) Writing, grammar skills are inadequate
3.) No idea what to write about
Though not entirely inclusive, these three obstacles are major concerns of those considering the idea of writing online and specifically those entertaining the idea of writing a blog.
When I first started out as a blogger, these very same concerns kept me away from my keyboard until I decided to face these obstacles head-on and do something about it. In essence, I found a solution to each one of these obstacles which I will provide below.
Writing Online … Solutions
Let me now offer you a few solutions to the the three obstacles mentioned earlier in the article. You may be surprised at how these solutions can be applied and get you started with writing online in just a short time!
1.) No Blog Or Knowledge In Building One
To be honest, I possess very little technology skills or knew nothing when it came to building a website. No idea! Through my research, I found that there are a number of sites that you can find online that will be more than happy to build one for you. At a cost!
I really wasn’t interested in paying a lot of money to get this done, so I continued my research and came across a program called Wealthy Affiliate. If you are interested in learning more about Wealthy Affiliate, I have created a review post that you can read by clicking here.
One of the things that Wealthy Affiliate offers as a free member is the creation of a blog website that will be built specifically for you. No need to worry if you lack any website creation skills ( I had none) as it is built for you with little to do on your part. Once you enter a few small details, your blog website is generated in less than 30 seconds. See below:
So there you have it, obstacle #1 is taken care of without costing you a dime!
2.) Writing, Grammar Skills Are Inadequate
Do me a favor and go to your search browser and type in any subject of your choice. Scroll down a bit and select a blog pertaining to the topic that you have entered. Read the entire article and count the number of words you see misspelled or other grammar mistakes.
My point? You don’t need to be an excellent writer or have a degree in Journalism to write good blog articles. As long as you are providing quality content to your readers, they will visit your site. This article you are currently reading I’m sure has its share of errors.
Simply write as if you were talking to a friend, without trying to produce content that would resemble a legal document. Nobody wants to read something like this so just write in a natural and friendly manner. Tell a story about something you witnessed, used, or are a part of.
3.) No Idea What To Write About (Solution)
All of us have something in life that peeks our interest. Health, Fitness, News, Sports, Gardening, Cooking, Investing, Games, etc. I could go on and on. Writing about something that interests you or brings you enjoyment will flow naturally which makes writing a much easier task.
I am sports guy, so let’s use baseball for an example. What could I possibly write about regarding baseball? Here is an example: Baseball gloves, baseball bats, baseball hats, baseball spikes, baseball teams, baseball memorabilia, etc. I now have enough topics to write about for some time.
Perhaps you have just purchased a new car. You could always write about your experiences with this new car, and point out what you like about it and what you are unhappy with. A review of this specific car would provide a great deal of information to your readers and help them with making a choice. Good stuff!
Writing A Blog For Money
Now that we have addressed the obstacles involving writing online, why not consider making some money with our writing? Blogging has become very popular with individuals throughout the world and many are doing quite well in generating a nice income from home.
One way to generate money from your blog is serving the role of an affiliate. As an affiliate, you can generate a nice income by promoting, marketing and selling products that you don’t personally own.
By doing so, you can receive a nice commission and actually make this a business for yourself. For those not familiar with this process, Wealthy Affiliate provides excellent training in all aspects of affiliate marketing. Here’s a quick look at how this process works:
I hope this article has given you some helpful insights to online writing and how it can be quite rewarding. As I mentioned earlier, you don’t need to be an expert writer or possess any special skills to be successful with your blog.
Write about anything you like, and provide information that your readers can use to benefit from. By doing so, your readers will anticipate and look forward to your next article as you continue to gather their trust.
For those of you looking to make money with your blog as an affiliate, there are a number of platforms available to do so. I have written about these platforms in a previous article that you can read by clicking here.
