I’ve been writing online since about 2005/2006 β€” almost 15 years. Even when I wasn’t doing it full time (and I’m not right now but I am working back to that and I am taking new clients), I was learning and honing my craft.

I started off on a site called Writing Up. Does anyone remember that site? It was one of the very first sites where you could write whatever you wanted and earn money from Google Adsense. It is the site that got me my Adsense account, too. It was populated by people who just wanted to do the same thing as me β€” make some money while doing what they loved.

Over the years, I started writing for clients. I wrote mostly for private clients and that is still my preference but I did work for a handful of writing companies over the years.

There are a lot of misconceptions about writing online. In fact, some people just think it is easy money. Others have no idea that it can ever be a career! But it can. I know many people who make their living by writing content online.

If you’re considering making a living from writing online here are a few things that I’ve learned that you can benefit from:
