If you can earn three cents a word, then congratulations my friend you have just qualified as a writer online!
3 Cents A Word where did I find this measure? I was reading someone’s blog last night, I am sorry I just can’t remember the name right now(will get it for you and will put the link in soon. Sorry!). I found it to be an interesting blog on writing and earning from it on the world wide web. According to the blog there are people earning upto 3 dollars a word online!(WOW, I have still to earn that much for a single article!!!).
Further, the blog goes on to enumerate that most writers online, who are worth their salt, earn at least 3 cents a word. While the others(those who fall bellow 1 cent a word, I am not even there!) are not really writers they are mostly people who are trying to be writers because they have always wanted to write and the internet has given them the wonderful opportunity of doing it!(really it wouldn’t be possible for most of us to get published otherwise!).
The blog stressed on the need for quality content. According to this weblog, content is still king and if you have the ability to use words and are impeccable on spelling and grammar, you are a strong contender for making money on the internet! The same blogger narrates how he is quite happy that blogging is his profession. He earns, not only from producing quality content but also from residual income(what we call passive income! And sometimes handsomely!!!).
He affirms that there are individuals, companies, etc. always on the look out for people who can write(really write!There will always be demand for your services. Remember, if you do your research well and generate good material that is useful to people, a helpful how to, or tips which actually impart knowledge, then you could have yourself a gold mine! But if skills are poor, your knowledge limited, and writings full of errors, forget it!
The good writers are few and very much in demand. They will not write for cents(like I do) for their worth is weighed in gold(I wish to be like that, someday perhaps!). And this is from me, the thing for an aspiring writer is not to give up under pressure. Don’t ever surrender to the trials and tribulations of your vocation, keep moving and learning as you go along on the road to your goal of being a successful writer online. Have hope and you will succeed. Always!
