Home Based Opportunities for Writers to Consider

Anyone who has ever been laid off, dismissed or had to accepted an early retirement, knows that there is no such thing as job security, the only thing that is secure is that the cost of living will continue to rise.  The lack of jobs and/or the possibility of losing a job have caused quite a number of people to seek an additional income.  And if you’re fortunate enough to be able to put scribe to paper, then…

The opportunities can be plentiful when you have writing skills. If you are a skilled writer and are looking to ditch the commute and cash in on your talent, or you need to supplement your income, you may want to consider a few of the home based business opportunities that are readily available.

As an online writer, you can publish your own electronic magazine or ezine. The Internet essentially levels the playing field for writers as you don’t have to wait for a publisher to discover you. If you have the desire to publish an ezine, you can get started with very little upfront money.    By using various self-promotion techniques, writing your own ezine can become a very good home based business opportunity.  Alternatively, you could publish your own weblog or blog, pick your own platform or just write to get your name out there. The possibilities are limitless.

Blogging, Lazier/Easier Than Writing an Article???

In today’s seriously more developed (or is it) blogosphere world, the viewpoint of most journalists, is that blogs are basically a laymen’s non-fact-finding opinion of their own views, or merely a journal entry.

This post is still under-development, the meat and potatoes of this topic is still resonating in my head. Once it’s fully developed I will of course serve it up and share it with readers, I suspect since it is a blog post, it is my choice to do so. BTW, this wasn’t as easy as it may appear.

Stay tuned…

Blogging the News Stories As They Happen

Blogging news stories as they unfold can be one of the most exciting and debatable applications of technology that bloggers have discovered. One thing that makes the blogosphere so active is the fact that it is possible to update a blog instantaneously, so the news on blogs tends to be more current than the news in the paper, or on television. Unlike news delivered by these other media, news that appears on blogs does not have to travel through a series of editors and administrators before it reaches the public eye. Of course, this has some advantages, and some distinct disadvantages.

One of the most notable cases of news hitting a blog before appearing in other media took place in July 2005 when terrorism struck London. As passengers were evacuated from a subway car near an explosion, one man took several photos of the scene with his cell phone, and within an hour the images were posted online. First-person accounts of the disaster began appearing on blogs soon after these photos appeared, and people all over the world learned about the events in London by the information posted by bloggers.

The fact that these stories and images were being spread directly by individuals operating without the added filter of a reporter helped to make the crisis feel very immediate to people across the globe. When it comes to blogging, news often appears in a very personal context. This has the potential to be an exciting era of reporting, one that takes “Journalism” to its logical next step by putting the power to shape how the news is written and read directly into the hands of the public.

Many bloggers and cultural commentators who are champions of the weblog movement feel that this growing trend of individuals getting their news from blogs is a good thing, because it makes the flow of information more democratic-‘freedom of the press’ at its best. By decentralizing the control of news, blogs allow more voices to enter the field of debate about important current events. However, many people are adamantly opposed to the use of blogs as news outlets, and there are plenty of good arguments on this side of the debate. Unlike newspapers or television stations, few blogs have fact-checkers, and there is little attention paid to journalistic accountability on many blogs. This can lead to the rapid spread of misinformation, and more than one falsehood has taken the blogosphere by storm. The questions about whether blogging news as it happens is ethical or not are very complicated, but no matter where you stand on the topic of blogging current events, you are almost sure to agree that this movement has the potential to revolutionize how many people get their news.

Making Money with Articles: Use Search Engine Optimization Techniques

SEO image

Learn to use search engine optimization techniques when writing your articles. If hiring a writer to write articles for you, you can choose one who already knows about SEO or you can supply them with a list of keywords and let them know where they should be placed and how many times they should be repeated throughout the article. Optimizing your articles for search engines will help them rank higher when someone searches for a keyword relating to your subject, which means that you will receive more visitors because more people will actually see your URL. It is a fact that most visitors don’t look past the first search engine result page and by the third search engine results page there is practically no audience left for you to promote to. What this means for those on the third or high page is no traffic. This is why it is very important for you to make sure that your articles are prepared in a way that will eventually get them to that first or second search engine results page.
