Where to Find Writing Jobs Online

These times we live in are excellent for the novice writer. Years ago, writers were few compared to today’s thousands that can write on a blog, Facebook, and others places. They do not have to be a journalism graduate or an English major to be able to write with authority.

How to get started

The primary concern for the inexperienced writer is “if I want to create a new career as a writer, how do I get started?”  Facebook should be the first place to begin writing. Writing can be fun and certainly allows for practice. Other Social Media sites to post on will be Google+, Linkedin, About.me, Twitter and others. These sites allow for much-needed practice and should be considered just that – practice.

Develop a Blog

The next area that should be developed will be a Blog.  Blogs are fantastic for having space to write about any topic. Blogs can serve as your “Sunday Pulpit,” where you can “preach” on just about anything you want.  As long as your blog has no bad language and is clean in content it can be published. You can also share your blog with Facebook, Twitter, and other Social Media sites.  All of this will help you build your reputation.

  1. First, set up a domain name. You can get a cheap domain with a .info, .net, or .org at Namecheap. You shouldn’t spend more than a few dollars.
  2. Set up hosting with Host Gator. **If you are not technical  – they have a GREAT support staff – just phone them or use their live chat function and they will help you set up your FREE WordPress Blog with their hosting.

You need hosting with your own domain name. You can also set up a personal email once this is complete. So if you have a domain name like ‘CopywritingWithLisa.net’ you can get an email like Lisa@CopywritingWithLisa.net for example.

**If you need help with setting this up – email me at naterio1109@gmail dot com – I have a program for $97 where I will log into your computer and set this up with you. It’s a 1-on-1 consulting training to show you how to set up your accounts with Host Gator and Namecheap and get you blog initially set up.

Then you just need to start putting up blog posts!
