Default question about writing online

Hello everyone,

I've been using Hubpages for a while now and I have seen a decent increase in the new ad program they have but I was wondering what it takes to write for websites and private clients. I've written a few textbroker articles and earned some from there but it seems like the work flow is limited there. Do you have to be perfect in punctation and spelling to be good at online writing? I don't consider myself an expert. What are some other common websites that I can earn from rather than earning per article view.

HI there.

A lot of us spend a lot of time answering questions for new writers. I did a search for Textbroker on WAHM and here is a list of threads about Textbroker.

Search Results | WAHM.com

Here is a list of search results for private clients.

Search Results | WAHM.com

There is also a sticky at the top of the page for finding private clients.

You do not have to be perfect in writing because you only get better with time. I would suggest jumping in and getting started.

Good luck!

I would add that it can be very helpful to get a style guide to refer to while you write, and you can utilize the spelling and grammar checks available in many word processing programs to help reduce errors. If you choose to write for Textbroker, they use the AP style of writing, so an AP style guide would be a great $20 investment.

Personally, I think Textbroker is the perfect place to start.

If you pay attention to their critiques and read the suggestions in their blog, you'll be a grammar expert in a matter of months.

I agree with Sherryy. I started at a 2 and am now a 5. My punctuation sucked when I started. They are hard on you sometimes in their critiques, but it definitely helps you learn what you're doing wrong. They also post VERY helpful grammar stuff on their blog.

TB is my favorite too. Even though I have a wide variety of clients and eggs, I find that I spend more than 70% of my time working on TB every week. There are almost always lots of available articles in the topics that I enjoy writing about most.
