Hubpages, of which im a member allows newbies (i was really a top newbie when i started out there) and because there is soooo much help from accomplished writers, i became good within a few months ( like 3). You will get better and better as you go along, but whatever you decide, START NOW. Every week as you go along diligently, you will see an improvement. And if you are patient, you will get there. I started about 11 months ago and have earned about $600 so far. Its getting better everyday. Goodluck matpeci.

Writer's digest.com is a good source fpr writers. The best way to learn is to write and publish articles that allow newbies. Write and get peer opinion from other writers. This helps to get feedback. You can check my mylot profile page for sites that allow online writers.

I do not think that there are sites where a person can learn how to write articles, and gets paid for doing it. But there are sites where they pay for well written articles. If you want to improve your writing, visit sites like MyWritersCircle.com, Writing.com, and Whitesmoke.com. Whitesmoke sells its own writing software. Subscribe to its newsletter, and recently the site has been giving writing tips. Writing.com is a site for budding writers. It has links to other resources, and the links are not the same all the time. MyWritersCircle also gives tips. IF you want to start writing and get paid for it, keep on writing on myLot. Then move on to Bukisa, since it is not as strict or demanding as a few other sites. Once you are successful there and have lots of spare time, you may start thinking of writing for other sites.

It is not really that difficult if you do not try to be at the top within a short time. To start of your writing journey start writing on something you know well, maybe on how to develop a strong and lasting relationship. Regardless of what language you choose do not try to make grammar corrections until you have finished writing. Some writers choose the path of spinning, that is changing, somebody else's article. If you do not know the topic your rewritten article may sound funny. Avoid this route. Read more to get the feeling of how other writers put their thoughts on paper.

I have been writing online for almost two years now. In that time, I feel I have become a much better writer. It all revolves around writing about something that you are very interested in - whether it is a television show, fashion or travel. Or you could write about a topic that you are familiar with. I started writing articles about diabetes on Associated Content, since I am a mother of two type 1 diabetic children and have a husband who is type 2. I wanted to tell others, who were in the same boat as myself, about experiences I have had and how I handled these experiences. After several months, AC contacted me and I began writing diabetes articles for their new site. These articles paid $25.00 an article which was a huge step up from the $3.00 to $5.00 I was getting previously. This brings me to my next suggestion. Keep plugging along. Put your work out on the internet through as many sites as you can. In doing so, you will become more recognized and may even get better offers as I did. Make sure that your grammar and spelling is acceptable - this means a lot. Also, try to keep your paragraphs short. That was a problem I had when I first started writing and it took away from the appearance of my articles. If you are happy writing, it will show in your work. This is what draws people to your work. Happy writing.

I used to write on a site, but it got shut down, so I don't have much of a suggestion. But I think it really depends on what kind of writing you want to do. I would suggest that you go over grammar rues and stuff, because I know they look for that kind of stuff.
