There are many people through the world that earn a full time income from writing their own work and profit from it – this is every writers dream. However, not all writers will find their big break soon enough that will enable them to make a life long career and profit from their writing. Writing on different topics, of different lengths, and for different people / companies throughout the world will leave the writer curious to what he has accomplished – noticing when you as a writer have done well can be difficult – this will be mostly based on comments on your blog, or where the writer's writing is placed. Usually, the writer ends up having to get a second job, which results in the writing he is doing being put on hold until he gets enough free time, something that might not happen without he makes it so.
Writers are able to earn revenue from blogging by displaying their writing to people who will read it. Many writers submit their writings with their own opinions or personal stories about happenings in their real lives – many also inject some humorous into their writings that they display on their blogs. A bonus for writers to blog instead of the traditional form, is that writers can write any length of article and post it up onto their blog; most posts on any blog do average between 300-500 words; therefore, the amount of and length of posts added to the writers blog will depend on the amount of time that the writer has to spend on writing articles / posts to his blog. He could also write other articles and posts for hundreds of other websites or blogs and earn revenue from each post that he 'sells' to other bloggers and website owners, thus he is earning his money from doing something that he enjoys – writing blog posts and articles.
The key here, for you as a writer, is to network with others at each opportunity you get. Initially, you will probably get some writing projects that are not really that good, and probably will pay you 15 cents for a full article, persevere and determination at this price will get you a reputation that you can build upon. Then, once you're established, you will be able to charge more for the work you provide to your clients as your work improve to a more developed level. Making a full-time income from writing blog posts for others can actually really easy when you are established and have a good reputation. You will need to attract many people to your blog and entice them to want to hire you to write for their blog, but, you will also need to establish a large client base for yourself who will want to hire you and pay a substantial amount for your quality written content – allowing for your 'big break'.
Many other ways are available to you to earn a full-time income from blogging as a writer – you could join a site or network that has a community of other like minded writers together that wants to share your writing and theirs own with each other, you could also swap ideas and stories about attracting clients, working with them and how you have lost them. You will need to meet some requirements to join some of the networks on the internet, such as:
1. The overall content of your blog should be interesting, informative and consistent to the subject which it is about.
2. You need to supply titles and content in your posts which is fresh and original, clean and crisp, so that readers are interested and want to read more of your blog.
To get the point where you are approaching a full-time income from writing for the online community will require that you make a full time effort on your writing projects and that you clearly focus your needs towards your readers. You will probably have to work overtime to finish a certain job, that may have taken you longer to complete than initially thought, or a client may have added something last minute to the current job you are working on, these are all aspects that you will need to prepare for. Writing and learning a full-time income from it from the internet can not be simply done with a few hours a week, as these hours would not be beneficial to what you could earn if you put the effort in.
There are lots of different blogging software around that allow you to place the same or similar information on a number of sites. So, you can create more interest in the online community and will be able to place your blog on a number of sites to create interest, links, traffic and readers to click through to your main page – this will hopefully create more traffic traffic to your blog, increase the number of hits that your AdSense adverts get and establish a positive reader-base that will read the writing you produce and publish on your blog.
Beginner (or newbie) writers could be employed on your blog to take the strain off your workload, but employing a newbie writer will mean that you will probably have to pay a flat fee to the writer for the content that they produce – there is a bonus here though, that if you generate more revenue (which you should) from what you paid the writer to write the post for your blog, then you should pocket the difference – not bad seen as you did not write that particular blog post.
Therefore, you can choose – should you write all day for others, producing content for their websites or blogs and earn a standard rate, or earn a decent income by writing on a blog that you own? Earning a full-time income from blogging is achievable, and a-list bloggers in their relative niches do earn a sizeable amount from blogging.
