Default Writing Articles Online

I'm interested in writing articles online as there appears to be quite the demand for this kind of thing. Does anybody know of any online tutorials that could help me get started and also any sites that provide regular work ?

I wrote a couple of articles for a company that hires people to write them a few years ago. I quit because I thought the pay was poor and I didn't get credit for writing them once they were submitted.

I've also written a couple of articles for Associated Content. You don't get much money per article, but you also can earn ongoing income based on the hits your articles get. If you write enough articles on subjects people are interested in, you might be able to make some noticeable ongoing extra income. You also keep the credit for writing the articles. There are other sites that pay for articles that you post on their sites, too.

Really, if you google search for "writing articles online" you can come up with a lot of different websites that accept articles. What I've heard (And in some capacity, experienced) is that writing online has a rather steep learning curve and probably won't pay very well at first. If you have a lot of time on your hands and are a fast writer it might be worthwhile to look into, but as a full-time job... well, some people can make it work but it isn't for everyone. I agree with Forest in that you should try to get posted on a lot of different websites- having a broader publishing base allows you to concentrate an a more narrow range of topics. And you should try to get a resume service to help you build an attractive-looking resume, since that's all that potential employers will see.

At first I certianly wouldn't rely on it as a main income as the pay is very low at first. However, over time if you are dedicated (and a good wirter) you can make it worth your while.

If you have a niche interest you could always start a blog. It is a difficult field as there are already millions of blogs out there but if you can pick a subject that isn't well covered then you could start to earn income through advertising on your blog.

Writing articles tend to not need any tutorials to be honest. Just write something that matches your preferred purpose (to persuade, inform ect) and then write something interesting that you can publish on your blog or another blog.
