I started working online about five years ago. I really had no idea what I was doing or what was going to do! All I really knew was that I needed to earn an income from home. That was because I so desperately wanted to stay home with my newborn baby boy.
I was lucky enough to come across a women on a forum who was offering writing services in her signature file. I followed her link and a lightbulb went off. I knew I could do that too!
At that time, unfortunately, there really wasn’t much in the way of training on how to have your own freelance writing business writing web articles from home. I had to feel my way around in the dark. Well, not totally in the dark! There were some awesome writers along the way who helped answer my questions whenever they popped up. Other than their kindness, it was a process of trial and error.
Once I got my footing and started making a really good income with my writing (which didn’t take long at all, thankfully!), I decided to help other writers get their start as well. I’ve been lucky enough to mentor several writers who’ve gone on to become very successful.
But, I don’t feel that my work is done.
I know there are an incredible number of people out there who have lost their jobs, want to stay home with their children, or need to earn extra income from home, but aren’t sure where to turn. This may be the case with you. If you’re a good writer, or you’re willing to take the time to learn how to be a good writer, freelance writing and web marketing might be your answer.
I will caution you that this takes work! There is no true pushbutton method that will send thousands of dollars streaming into your bank account – sorry. But, it’s also not as difficult as you might think to start making a great income with your writing or web marketing.
This is huge part of the reason I decided to start a writing and marketing web magazine. There will be two editions per month! These editions will contain several articles, “mini” products, and even surprise full products to help you make your way online. It’s a monthly subscription, and I hope it will become awesome system of support for writers and web marketers out there. There’s simply no reason to go this alone, so I want this to be a resource you can turn to at any time.
As with everything I put out, feel free to e-mail me whenever you experience a hurdle you just can’t seem to get over. My main goal with what I do on this blog and elsewhere is to help other people achieve their goals.
I’m just a mom working from home in her spare time, and earning a great living doing it. I feel incredibly blessed by my lifestyle, and I want to give back in some way.
It’s also important to realize that things change very quickly on the web. Trends and methods that worked when I first heard started, no longer work. Staying on top of things as a writer and web marketer is very important, which is another thing I expect Writing That Rocks, the web magazine, to help you with.
The subscription price is incredibly low, because I want it to be affordable for everyone. I want you to think of this as the gift that keeps on giving! My goal is for this to become the best value on the web for writers. I hope you will always feel free to give me your feedback and make special requests for things you would like to see in the magazine.
Over time, I hope to grow this into a community and full support system for writers, so the magazine is a starting point. Join today – you’ll be thrilled that you did!
