Obligatory first post

Hi, welcome to my blog and my very first post.

I'm going to be using this to document my online writing career as I thought it would be a cool way to keep myself accountable. I'll be posting reviews of the different sites I use to sell articles, and generally musing on ways to make money on the internet by selling your words. From my research on how to earn money by writing articles online, I found a lot of websites guaranteeing that you can easily make, $5,000 a week by writing for a penny a word. I have a feeling the people who write things like that would do their very best to sell coal to Blackpool too! In saying that, I'm sure you can make quite a comfortable income from writing online and I hope to find out how.

I've been content writing for a few months now, but I've been writing in other areas for much longer. Here's the skinny on my past, present and future writing ventures:
  • I've just started my PhD
  • I have one trunked novel
  • I have published academic articles and will continue to do so.
  • I have published short stories and continue to write them.
When you add content writing to the list, you can see that it adds up to a lot of writing! So this blog will be a place to relax and take things easy. I'm looking forward to meeting other writers on here, so drop me a line in the comments and tell me about your online endeavors. What sites should I watch out for? And which ones treat their writers well?
