Freelance writing can include a variety of writing requirements within its purview. When I began my journey into the web writing world, it was all about ghost writing. Sites have their content written by content writers and later for the purpose of marketing or site promotion there is something known as submitting articles in "article directories". Internet marketing like the real world is all about making your presence and creating links.For this article directories serve as a good platform for increasing you exposure. For me the beginning was all about writing articles for submissions to these directories. Slowly with me understanding the way things worked here, I began exploring greener pastures.
From articles for directory submissions to actual website content to my having my own blogs - the journey began. I have begun to enjoy blogging as a form of writing although still continue to do informational articles. From my own blogs, as I tried to make my presence in the online world, on my own name(earlier it was all about ghost writing), came in a few good blogging opportunities. Grab every opportunity that comes your way, analyse its worth both in terms of payment and also widening your exposure. Good sites would make a good addition to your portfolio. Thus,began my blogging venture and am glad to say that I am enjoying every bit of it. Blogging to me has been
- an expression to the creative side of my personality.
- an opportunity to be there with my family and at the same time provide wings to my flight of thoughts and aspirations.
- not to forget the earning potential (it feels great to be at home, do what you like and earn a decent income).
From here on I would take you along on how to blog and what you need to know to get started on blogging.
