Writing Online Opportunity: Do I Need To Pay Before I Can Find Such Job?

I have been looking for an opportunity to write online not only for me to get paid while at home but to keep honing my writing skills. There are various websites providing such opportunities. A lot of offers I have read are really promising so that makes me keep on clicking their pages until I reach a certain point that I have to make a purchase for coupon and that caused me to end my browsing to their website. Is that really part of the writing online job vacancy? I do not understand because at MyLot, I did not have to pay anything to start earning and writing. By the way, I am starting to enjoy sharing my ideas in the discussion section of MyLot.

There are lots of sites on which asks for pay initially before giving jobs, most of them are like fake. if you want guinuine writing jobs then you can try freelancer, elance and more sites which pay you after you complete the job and dont ask for any money, remember in online jobs you shouldn't give any money as far as possible. Think before you are got banged.

Welcome aboard "keshlois..." I too was a newbee to MyLot through a friend who told me about it. Actually you are on the right track. I, like you, was looking for online writing jobs as I am retired and living in Thailand when a neighbor told me about it. It actually is fun and there is never a dull moment. As for the money, as we say in Thailand "IT'S UP TO YOU". If you have time on your hands and are tired of looking at the "telly"this I would highly recommend. In answer to your question the answer is "NO". That's the best part. Don't get me wrong or mis-understand me, you don't make huge $$$'s but the potential is there if you have the time to put into it. Being retired I have that time. I have though at times gotten lazy or my neighbors bug me and I can't concentrate. That's another plus you can do some of the special things they advertse if you choose for additional revenue. Good luck in your new "Writing Career".
