If you want to make money online writing articles, there is something you must never stop doing...

Making Money From Home Writing Articles

If you are one of those making money from home writing articles, consider yourself blessed and favoured. I call you blessed and favoured because you have an opportunity to make money all the time without let or hindrance.

Well, only you can hinder yourself in this business of writing articles for money. You can hinder yourself by the number of articles you choose to write daily. You can also hinder yourself by the number of websites you have chosen to publish your articles, poems and short stories at.

Yet another way you can hinder yourself from making money writing articles from home is through the number of ways you have chosen to make money with your articles. You can choose to write just articles of interest to you and publish in your websites and blogs and also publish at wikinut. Others may choose to publish at other sites including those I have mentioned above.

Limiting Your Potentials at Articles Writing

Some article writers also choose not to limit themselves to just writing what interests them but to outsource their article writing skills to others who need these skills to provide content to their websites and blogs. Some writers are now writing school theses and feasibility studies for those who need them. I have also come across clients requiring program proposals to be written for them for submission to donors for possible funding.

You can see from above that you are limiting your potentials at articles writing from home.

Article writers are also writing short stories and whole books for themselves and for others as freelance articles writers. The choice is yours as you decide how far you want to go to market the skills set available to you as an article writer.

Many other article writers register at freelance article writing sites to provide their article writing skills to those who need them. I have included poems as part of article writing since some content clients specifically require rhyming poems for their websites and blogs.

Quality of Articles Count

The quality of the articles you publish should be important to you if you want to make money from home writing articles. If you are noted for writing shoddy articles, you will quickly lose readership and you will, in time, discover that your articles do not get many page views. If you are a freelance writer, you will discover that those you write articles for seldom require your skills again.

To overcome this, take time to write, review, edit, rewrite and then, publish your articles. This is difficult as you start writing and publishing your articles. However, with time, you learn to do the above even as you write your articles.

Article Writing Compared to Bread Making

If the articles we publish are bread, many people will stop eating bread. Our articles undergo the same process as making bread. They are also consumed as bread is consumed. When you want to make bread, all the ingredients you will need are kept handy.

There is a process of making bread which has not changed over the years. You get the ingredients, mix them as they should, cut the dough into sizes and you all them to rise before baking. After baking, you let the bread cool down before cutting(if you wish) and then packing for distribution and consumption. If any of the above processes are truncated, the bread that will come out will likely be unwholesome.

In the same way, if you just throw in some words together and publish, you would have written an article, but, who will consume it? even you, the writer, will hate to read it after it has been published.

Therefore, prepare and then write your articles and read it before you upload to ensure that what you had in mind to write was actually what you had written and published.

If you want to Make Money Online Writing Articles

If you want to make money online writing articles, there is something you must never stop doing; never stop writing articles and never stop publishing your articles!

If indeed article writing is your business, there is no way you can stop writing articles online. This is because, just as workers go to work whether they like it or not, so, you have to write articles in season and out of season.

Therefore, continue writing good articles and never stop writing and your income will never stop coming from writing articles.

If you are not yet making money writing articles, join Wikinut and make money online writing articles.

I agree with you about quality of articles. The writers who will comment here will actually be those who write good quality contributions, those that need to learn will not be looking at your article. The amount of junk I see in the moderation queue is unbelievable, a large percentage is rejected but many other are not so poor as to cause rejection.

That's not a very encouraging indictment, Peter, knowing you to be an author of inspirational series here. The result is most, likely those whose English is second to their mother tongue will pack their bags and leave, further reducing the number of writers on Wikinut. And that negates your purpose of inspirin people here. So sad you say that.

Actually Buzz, I give most leeway to those whose first language is not English, but sadly there are those who do not improve - daily they provide badly written articles that are republished from another site about subject they know only little about. I wish to encourage and inspire people to improve but there are some that show no inclination to do so.

Well taken, Peter. But we've never heard harsh critique said from Mark and Johnny like yours . It was off-putting considering the Chief nut has not been fair to all writers, native speakers or otherwise. You only have to look around to see how many familiar faces have left and how few remain. Sorry, Peter, this is how I am, frank to a fault.

Buzz, I consider you a friend, but in this case I must come to Peter's defense. I am a CE (Copy Editor) on a couple of sites unfortunately Wikinut is not one of them although I have asked to become one many times over the last few years) so I understand where he is coming from. I always go above and beyond the call of duty when working with writers who have English as a second language. For many of them, I spend as much time editing their articles as I would have spent writing it myself. I even go as far as sending them back their original article, showing the changes that I made and going on to explain why I made those changes. Many appreciated my efforts and studied the material I sent them, and those writers improved with each article they submitted. Others didn't even make an attempt to improve. Writers that were willing to make the effort to learn didn't deserve my time and effort and I reject their work as submitted. That may seem harsh, my friend, but an editor has to draw a line somewhere. One thing that Peter didn't say was that we editors get as much badly written submissions from native English speakers as we do from those who are not native speakers.

I do not honestly believe that it was Peter's intent to drive any aspiring writer away from writing for Wikinut.

As for comparing Peter to Mark and Johnny, I don't think that's fair because Peter's background and experiences are completely different from either Mark or Johnny.
Sorry for the long, drawn out reply, Buzz. Let's just say that I have been there and done that, and I can feel Peter's frustrations.

Jerry is absolutely correct. I have members of my own family that fall into the category of people for whom English is a second language, so I am well aware of the problems involved. Remember Wikinut does not give me any opportunity to edit the posts, so if the English usage is so bad I have no option but to reject it. That said this morning I had a note thanking me for rejecting the piece as it gave the writer an opportunity to correct and resubmit the article with corrections in place.

I do not consider myself as being harsh. I told my son (who publishes here) that one of his articles demonstrated such bad use of the English language (and he was born and went to school in England) that I would have rejected it, but I also told him why. He learned, so why can't other writers?

I do not wish to drive people away, I wish to improve their writing skills.

There is no reason to drop the guards and lower standards because English is someone's second language. The articles are to be published in Engllish. If it is similar or close to English, it is not English. People should learn their trade if they want to belong there.

How would you allow a trainee driver to drive you just because he came from a disadvantaged town? Those who want to write should learn the skills which is not very difficult and the process of article review is a learning process that all should embrace.

Peter, you are right. Otherwise, the standard at wikinut will dwindle and advertisers will look elsewhere, followed by those writers who caused the problem in the first place.

I bow to Jerry and to you too, Peter. Thank you. I love American English and British English. Only that, Peter, there must be a way to put the your statement in some sort destructive criticism but in a way that inspire confidence in every writer. That always works, and very constructively than how ydestructive tone you put it.

A little care will make our articles better. Just re-reading our articles before publishing will help us produce better articles.

Well, anyway, no matter how many hours you spend making yourr articles pretty here wirh images, however grammatical they may be, regardless of whether you are American, English, Canadian, or Asian English speaking peoples -- YOU DON'T GET PAID FOR YOUR WORK, AND ONLY THE CHIEF NUT5 GETS THE LION'S SHARE FOR THE WRITERS' WORK! AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!

Writers do get paid, Buzz. I get paid, maybe not as much as I do on most of the sites that I write for where I average $25 up front for 500 words, but I do get paid. The thing that we all must keep in mind is that the writer who are writing for Wikinut are doing so by choice and the writers that stay on with Wikiut do so of their own free will. Every writer who stay here have their own reasons for doing so and for most of us it is not money because for those of us who are full-time writers we are earning the money that pays our bills elsewhere. For me, Wikinut is the place where I can relax and write about the things I want to write about instead of having to write about what my clients/editors want me to write about. Wikinut is also the place where I can help new writers get their start. My point, Buzz, is this--if money is at the top of someones list of reasons for writing an article, then Wikinut isn't the place for them to publish it.
I also want to point out that by you shouting, and that is what your 'YOU DON'T GET PAID FOR YOUR WORK, AND ONLY THE CHIEF NUT5 GETS THE LION'S SHARE FOR THE WRITERS' WORK! AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!' all in caps is" is that you are doing exactly what you accused Peter of doing, scaring new people away from writing for Wikinut.

Sorry,my friend, but that's the truth.

Actually all with patience you all get paid. Trouble is we may EXPECT to get paid more than we actually are and that may be a different problem. But in time we are paid. Scaremongering helps no-one.

The answer is clear; you get paid when it it your time. You may write the best prose but, if it is not read and ads clicked, you may get nothing. Learn the workings of each group you belong to and your expectations will not be wishful thinking. As Jerry said, one can write what he likes at wikinut in a relaxed atmosphere. That's why I am here. Why are you here?

To start off with i enjoyed your article and wish that others sites moderated like you do.I am not perfect but I double check all my articles and let the set for an hour or over nite and reread and then make corrections if needed. then i publish it. I want it to say what i meant to say. Yes you are right it should be a matter of pride to write a good article, I iwant to be able to tell my friends to read my article.

Thanks Joseph. It will be embarrassing for me to set out to write "opportunity is now here" and end up writing "opportunity is nowhere". Same words but just one space bar has made a world of difference. Write, edit, proofread, revise and publish your articles. It pays in the end.

As Peter commented on a previous page, the disgusting language used by Jerry detracts from his supposedly knowledgeable comments. Fortunately, I have the resilience and confidence to ignore his remarks, but surely they must cause new writers to be detered from our otherwise intelligent, insightful and talented work.

Ivy, I appreciate your thoughts as written down above. We all need to learn what we want to do and then go out and do it. Those of us who write in a second language should do our best to learn how to write well in those languages. Otherwise, we may end up writing "opportunity is nowhere" instead of "opportunity is now here". Same words but different meaning.

For the ESL types, the only way out is to keep on writing. Here, there are some excellent writers, who in their comments may suggest improvements in the article.
Unfortunately, I do not find anyone pointing the mistakes. Also, when I point out any mistake, I find the writer taking offense.

GV, Sir - you make an excellent comment. part of the problem here is pointing out people's errors, yet doing it in a way that encourages them to continue writing.

When I moderate submissions that come either from new authors I do give general advice about how they may improve. Sadly 90% are not listening - they are just satisfied at having their article published.

Great article.

I would add that you also need to promote your work - I've seen a few articles on this site where people are complaining that they have loads of pageviews but have earned very little.

Well, Wikinut does not display ads to members - so if you have 80,000 pageviews and 79,000 are from other members, you are only really earning from the 1000 pageviews that come from people outside the site.

People need to tweet their articles, post them on Facebook and generally get into the habit of promoting.

Our livelihood surely don't depend on Wikinut. I doubt if there is one person who is earning a living writing for Wikinut. However, I would say almost all of us here are writing and contributing because we have a few minutes to spare every day and we enjoy banging on the keyboard. How well Wikinut can do will depend on whether the representatives are willing to pay the writers fairly and honestly. Good writers need not be searched. They come to you naturally.
