Your first step towards getting paid to write online will probably begin with lower earnings while you perfect the craft and looks for that potential job fit. If you have been writing for a while, you can readily agree that making a living with writing depends on the writer having skills necessary to provide the work needed by the client at any given time.

As you begin to explore your options, you will begin to realize that the flexible writer has an advantage over others. You must take your writing job very seriously, just like you would any other job if you are to see yourself succeed as a writer. It is important to know that writing can be hard or as easy as you would want it to be, for only you know what you wish to accomplish.

Writing online offers you the level of freedom that no other job can. Apart from freedom of hours, working when you want, online writing jobs provide freedom regarding topic on which to write. The only challenge you will have as a beginner, is the ability to produce perfect, finished product. When that is out the way, high paying clients will find you with ease – you don’t have to go digging in the mud for better paying clients if your work is of high quality.

Years ago when I started writing, I was paid $3.00 for a 300 word article, and that was okay with me. “Why did you get paid very little”? You may ask. Well, I was still working on building my portfolio. Once I established my worth, I had the ability to receive as much work as I could reasonably complete without compromising the required quality guidelines. You must write to perfection in order to find clients willing to pay for your craft.


“What are they,” you may ask? They are, perhaps, the most ignored aspects of human truths. Instincts are some kind of a natural GPS system that tells the mind whether or not to do something, but in most instances, are ignored. If you have ever done something that your instincts did not approve of, and ended up getting in trouble, then you know what I’m talking about.

Human instincts and curiosity are worst of enemies, why? Because curiosity is the blind side of the human brain that knows no truth, right or wrong. Curiosity does not know when or where to draw the lines, also known as boundaries. And because of poor curiosity, most people find themselves in situations they wish they never put themselves into, in the first place. It’s almost as if you’ve reached a point of no return.

Human instincts, on the other hand, are like the good guys who are always looking out for you – keeping you out of trouble. Although, in some cases, humans do not have the ability to access or even listen to their own instincts, most of it is just pure ignorance. And we, as humans, know what ignorance does; it leads to fattened, endless trouble that knows no end.

If you are, in fact, one of those humans who do not have the ability to access their own instincts, it’s about time you learned how to. In order to develop access to these instincts, you must first learn to listen to voices within your mind before you attempt to do something. Usually, those voices can be as conflicting as they come – one will say don’t even try it, yet, the other will say, big deal! Now, that’s curiosity at its best. The best way to distinguish instinct from curiosity crap is to listen to the first word that comes to mind when you are attempting to do something; if the first word says don’t, then don’t do it! It’s not good for you!
