Writing On The Internet
I began writing on the internet a few years ago by accident. Since then, I have been writing by choice and making money and contacts doing it. I have become better at writing on the internet over the years.
I can on the fly write articles about any topic I know about. However, for topics I am not conversant with, it takes me a while to do it. I hardly compromise on my standards since most people will know me and associate me with my articles they have read. Therefore, I do my best to write articles that are of the highest quality and not copied content.

The first types of articles I started writing online are blog posts. You see, I was introduced to affiliate programs and I thought I could make a lot of money without promoting my affiliate products. The reality dawned on me when after several months I had not got visitors going to my affiliate websites.
My research on the internet revealed that the way to go was to write blog posts to draw attention to the affiliate websites. I went to blogger.com and registered a free account. I also went to wordpress.com and did the same. I started posting articles at my blogger blogs as soon as it was registered.
The blog posts drew attention to the affiliate products I was promoting and I made a few sales. The number of visitors ending up at my affiliate website increased and kept increasing on a daily basis.
As the visitors increased, so did my blog posts also increase. Because of the attention my blog was getting, I was motivated to write more since I was anxious to keep my content fresh and continue to appear on the Google search engine results page.
I was making money through my writing though not directly. My blog posts were promoting my affiliate products and I was making money through commissions received from affiliate products sales.

In time I started writing for money on the internet. I started by writing articles and submitting to articles directories where publishers could pick them up and republish them on their websites and blogs. Some of the republished articles helped me make affiliate sales through the websites where they were republished.
Many article directories, especially the small ones, invited me to write and submit articles on their directories. Some republished my articles on their directories. They were all good for me since they were actually promoting me on the internet as a writer of repute.
Eventually, I went and registered at Elance as a freelance article writer and proofreader. The success story so far changed.
Writing For A Living
It was a different ball game at Elance when I registered. I had the notion it was going to be easy writing for a living on the internet. How wrong I was.
It took me a few days to get my first project at Elance. The job was to write 5 spinnable articles using a predefined syntax. The topics were varied and most were in niches I had never heard of before. For instance, one of the articles was on bimini tops. That was the first time I was hearing that word bimini. A quick search on the internet revealed that it was a type of top for pontoons.
Well, I wrote the articles but could not meet up with the agreed time due to unforeseen circumstances. The owner of the project was understanding and accepted the project when it was finally ready and also paid me promptly and recommended me on the website.
Due to time, I could not take up more projects and I have not visited the website for a few months now. However, I could have been making a decent living writing articles for a living if I had promoted it.
