Are you looking for ways to supplement your income? Do you currently have a blog that you update on a daily or weekly basis? Did you know that you can spend a few minutes each day to earn money writing online? You don’t need special training or a college degree to get started.

There are a multitude of opportunities that will empower you to earn supplemental income. You can write for different web publishers that pay money for your articles and content. There are no fees involved and you will earn money writing online. This is great start in getting a supplemental income.

Tips for Writing

You can earn money writing online. Your writing has to grab the readers’ attention. This is the beginning of a successful future if you have the drive and enthusiasm.

  • Quality-your writing should be of good quality about the subject you are writing about. Your readers should be drawn into the subject matter you are writing about. Stay away from trying to meet your minimum word count by adding words or phrases that are not directly related to your subject. You will lose the readers’ interest and your work will lose its validity.
  • Knowledge-Write about a subject matter that you are passionate about or that you have a strong familiarity with. This will make it easy for you to write and your words and phrases will flow smoothly. Readers will be able to connect with your writing because you have a strong connection with the subject matter.
  • Format-You don’t need a degree in English to earn money writing online, but you need to ensure that your writing has structure, is grammatically correct, and has a beginning, middle, and an end. It should have smooth flow and guide the reader along.


Here are some websites that you can check out. They have opportunities for you to earn money with your content.

  • SQUIDOO-This is web publisher that allows you to create a unique ”lens” (mini blog) to showcase your subject matter. You can add links, and monetize your Squidoo lens within the parameters of the publisher’s user agreements. Those who choose to write for Squidoo are called “lenswriters”.
  • HUBPAGES-Similar to SQUIDOO, you can create a mini blog relative to the subject matter at hand. This is a great place to share your ideas, reviews about a new product, or offer advice. They will guide you step by step on setting up your HUBPAGE and when a user clicks on your links and adds within your page, you earn money if they make a purchase.
  • XOMBA-You will need a GOOGLE ADSENSE ACCOUNT, but when you join XOMBA, they will walk you through the steps to get this set up. You can start earning money writing online with this site and you don’t have to worry about setting up your own web site.

These are just a few ideas to help you get started on how to earn money writing online. Again, none of these sites charge a fee and its completely free. Now is the opportunity to start earning that supplemental income you have been longing for. This will not make you rich overnight, but with the quality content you produce, it will provide a strong foundation as you continue to build your online assets.
