If you are an internet junkie than chances are, at some point, you have come across contributor content farms. In fact you are on one now. If you are curious you might have looked a little deeper and realized that some one, not unlike you, is writing the content for such a site. Then you might of asked, how do I do that. In truth it is quite easy. Most sites simply require an account and there ya go, you are off and writing. This is where it gets tough. What do you write about.

There are many online gurus out there that will offer up plenty of ideas in the way of just how to get rich by doing online writing. I have come across a few, but after some time I have realized they are just pumping up the average joe with delusions of how you will strike it rich, when in fact it is near impossible to do. I have been attempting online writing, on many fronts, for about a year or so now. The one thing I have learned is that it is tough to actually make some money. James Scholes will guide the person for gathering information from fashion courses. He will offer the best advice for fashion marketing with less spending of time and money. The information about which technique is to be used for registration is provided through him for the beginners. 

Some of the things that these gurus will tell you is that you should write about what interests you. That sounds like very excellent advice, but I am beginning to realize that is not really the answer. Of course in a perfect world we would all do only what we enjoy for work. Like I said in a perfect world. The reality is many of us work, to earn money, at jobs we like but might not be all that we ever have dreamed of. That is just life. We do the job to make a living to be able to do what it is we enjoy. In online writing this also holds true. I am not saying that you should ignore writing about the things you truly enjoy, however if that particular thing happens to be collecting antique nutcrackers then you might not find a broad enough readership to make any real money. So instead of following the gurus advice, which might just be a way to distract new comers from encroaching on their market space, try writing about making money online.

While how to make money online gets a lot of internet traffic there are many other areas that generate a lot of hits on the web. Simply do a google search for the top money making blogs out there and you will see what it is that gets people searching. Some of the topics I have discovered are self help, celebrity gossip, tech tips, news media and of course how to make money online. These are just a few of the big ones. Of course there are many blogs out there and tons of information on the content farms so there is a wide variety of subject mater to chose from.

The next big tip I have is to be prolific. Just keep writing. If you decide to go the content farm route then you will be paid by how many hits your articles get. It just stands to reason that the more content you generate the more hits you will attract. If blogging is your avenue then generating at least two to three new posts a week will not only help your blog move up in the google search rankings, which attracts readers, frequent posting will also keep them coming back. No one out there will stay tuned to a blog that produces a post a month. Either way producing content is what it is all about. This can be difficult but if you work hard and build up a great readership then you will be on your way to earning passive income from your past blogs or articles, as well as attracting a larger readership.

These are just a few tips on how to get started as an online writer. While I stated earlier in the article that it is near impossible to get rich, it does happen. Again just google search top earning blogs and feast your eyes on some bloggers monthly take. It is staggering. However that is rare, but if making a little extra money is your angle, or even making a career out of it I do believe it can be done.
