I am interested in article writting. I personally feel that I can write good article if I get little experience about it. I have come to know that article writting is a good source of earning on internet. However, I do not know how to start and which are the finner points which I should be careful about it. I seek the guidance of some experienced members here. Thanks in advance.

Hi. there are actually a lot of sites where you can share or show your skills in writing. but it is very important that you are aware of the sites that can really be trusted so that you will not be wasting up your time. Now, i just want to share to you a great site where you can have a potential income.I have earned 140 dollars in 3 months. I am actually a good writer but i was able to earn that amount. it is a great site.

That's really good that you are interested in article writing. I too love writing articles and I have written numerous articles for Helium. I also write for Triond and I have one piece of fiction published with Associated Content. I think that if you love to write then you should get writing! The more that you write the better you will become. Check out my profile page and you can see some links to my writings there. The companies that I have mentioned, they are all free to join and hopefully you can earn a little income in the process. Good luck. Andrew

Hi there, you can start with whatever you want. Do you have some knowledge in any particular area? It doesn't matter if you don't. I love creative writing and I'm trying to focus more on that in relation to Helium. I guess you should practise writing on a regular basis though as you will become better without a doubt. Good luck my friend. Andrew

Yhanks arthi. I am sending you my email address through pm. Have you been paid by the sites you are talking about? I am asking you this because I have heard that many sites do not really pay as per their offer.

Just checked your profile, saw that you do not have a web site. First step would be to start a free blog at blog.co.in or bloggers.com. Once you have 20 posts, you can apply for payperpost or helium.com, which will pay you per post or pay you to write product reviews. A good starting point would be to start blogging about your hobby or passion. Hope to read your blog soon.

Hi there, I have been working for home for about 2 years now and I do freelance writing and also article writing for websites on which you get paid when it is viewed by others. By doing both of these things I manage to earn around $200 per week and more if I put more work hours in. If you need advice or the best signs to sign up to for both writing for websites and also private writing for clients then take a look at my blog fom my profile page. It is a work in progrss really but on there I have mentioned the best sites from my experience on which you can earn, the best sites to get freelancing writing jobs and also some helpful hints and tips that I have picked up along the way. If you need any help, please just ask! I hope I have been helpful, Kim

Having spent many years writing articles for various websites there are a few tips I have picked up on the way. 1) make sure you read any sites terms & conditions you plan to post on as they may only allow unique content (no posting the same article on other sites). 2) Read other peoples articles on these sites so you get an idea of the level of detail both on information and personal experience which is required in an article. 3) Grammar and spelling, without a doubt one of the most important aspects as to make serious money from the better paying sites you are expected to write clearly with very few errors. 4) To get the most out of some sites you need to contribute in other ways, such as reading and rating articles, other than just posting your reviews. Most importantly have fun and learn something new everyday along the way.

Yhanks for the tips. I hope that this tips will go a long way for me if I make some career in article writting. One more thing is that if you can share the names of the sites on which you have been writting.
