I recently graduated and want to set up a career in freelance writing. In fact, I am thinking of doing freelancing through internet. Can anybody suggest me how to go about it? Which websites are reliable enough to start writing for? And most importantly, nationality shouldn't be an issue. I mean one should be able to write from any corner of the world.

The first question I would have for you is do you have a paypal account or not? If you do then there is a site that you can start on right away and the payout is low. So let me know if you have paypal or not. I may be able to help.

Hi Pranka! kindly research on Amanda Hockings. She's 26 and doing so well on her writing. It might serve as an inspiration for you.

Ooops! I forgot to mention that she's into writing stories but she doesn't use publishers.

I have joined Triond and Helium. In Triond it is more easier to get articles published, while in Helium, it is a little harder, But the earning in Helium are much high.
