Hello fellow mylotters. Here I am again. Have you signed up to any writing earning sites? I'm so excited to write my first article. However, I can't start. LOL. Would you give me any suggestions or useful ideas? It's different here in myLot. I can easily form discussions here compared to that writing site. Can you remember your first article? What was it all about? Feel free to share your thoughts. Happy mylotting everyone.

It is harder to compose a story especially if you are just a newbie in the site.Here is is very easy to make discussions and respond to other topics.I always like to start a topic to proper waste management because most people here just throw away their garbage just anywhere they like to throw it.No self respect,not mindful of the current situation,and not mindful of the climate change.I will be delighted if you can make a wonderful story about this problem here in our country with people very hard headed.

Thank you very much for supporting my pleas because I am so ashamed being around these people,even if they know they are doing the wrong things just throwing anywhere they go.The bad thing is that when they happened to work abroad,why are they so law abiding in foreign countries?Why can they not do it right in their own beloved Philippines?That is why I am so angry with these people.When do they do their share to make our country clean and beautiful and becomes a prosperous country?

Oh, I agree with you. That's why we experience floods. I guess we have to be more disciplined in throwing our thrash properly. If our country is very clean, maybe there will be more tourists here. They might like investing businesses here. I hope someday, we'll become prosperous too.

Hello I am agree with above response from downwindz.. Better you go for your interest related content. By this way you will able to think about more topics and write well on that subject as it will be your interest related, otherwise you will be bored soon with your writing. I wasn't in article wring when I started online earning. Than I got suggestion from few friends, and now I am doing good in few sites. Best of luck for your writing.

I am currently a member of a few writing sites and some are working better out for me than others. I best recommendation to you is to write about a topic that interest you, or a topic you would like to learn more about - since this can help motivating you to do the research and writing. This is what I do in the periods where I dont know what to write about.

you are most welcome, I hope you get a nice first article written- but do not pres yourself and do not do it for the money as it may give even more pressure on your shoulders, look at the financial aspect as a bonus point to write, then you will enjoy it more and the ideas will easier come to you :)

I've been a storyteller/writer for nearly all--if not all--of my almost sixty years, so writing and being otherwise creative have always been like breathing to me. Even so, there are those times when I'm running low--or even on empty--when it comes to being fueled up to be creative. This is just part of being a writer. One thing I've been doing is trying to get my online life more organized and easy to navigate--both to myself and others. Here's a link to a page I'm creating that will take you to various writing and social sites of which I'm a part. http://ajville.blogspot.com/2012/08/find-me-at.html In most cases, the links will take you to my profile pages at the various sites. Hopefully, you will find inspiration by visiting them. Each one is unique. Most of them are open for reading whether or not you're a member of the same. Some (if you're thinking about participating) have a combination of free and paid memberships. Some are absolutely free. Some have options of paying for your membership by the month/part of a year/year. Some don't pay for what you write; some do. Some pay in cash. Others pay in points. Some have contests where you can win cash and/or points and/or gifts/gift certificates. I find that--at least, at this time--I will be more active at one or more sites than I am at others. Generally, I'm pretty much active on a daily basis at Facebook--and find that various things I stumble across there will inspire writings from me. Again, check out some of the places I've listed (with more to be added from time to time), and see if you'd like to make them your places as well. If you have any questions, feel free to message me here.

that would be the hardest part in other earning sites because you need to do it well to earn and sometimes it will be returned to you as being rejected for some reasons. that is why do not stick on there. ahmpt.. hmmm.. pertaining to your first time in there... think an interest that you feel like expounding at. what intense feeling you felt as of the moment. is it about politics, marriage, friendship, love, religion, etc. or you can make your first time to write in their site a discussion and your feeling towards about it. enjoy in there and good luck...

Hi Angelkarah, you can write very well, and i think you just need to overcome your inferior complex. Join an easy site to start with, once you have more confidence, you can go on to other sites. Maybe you can take a look at Articlegate dot biz, Expertscolumn and Redgage. You will find that most people do not even have your command of English language, yet they dare to publish for whole world to see.

Oh, thank you so much for boosting my confidence. Yes, starting to write causes me difficulty. Just like here in myLot before. I didn't have any idea of what to write because I often fellow mylotters' discussions. I'm afraid I'll post similar or exactly the same discussions. LOL. I'll do my best. Thanks for posting and happy mylotting.
