    Read leading blogs that focus on content writing such as Copyblogger. My formula to be a great content writer is to write simple, clear, and elegant.

      Copyblogger is a very helpful site. Do you know about any qualifications required for professional content writing in India?

      Thanks!

    Great reply, sandeep15r. I also want to say, as long as you combine your interests with something others will want to learn or read about, you will have a future in writing. Of course, consistency and a passion for what (or why) you're sharing is important. I've only just begun, but I have plans for combining groups and a ton of article ideas based around my interests. Much luck to you!

    You have to master basic grammar skills.  If your grammar is not top-notch; you will struggle.  I recommend everyone who speaks English as a second language (or their first for that matter), take advantage of grammar courses online.  There are many resources for improving in this area.

      ankush0809, I second this answer.  I just helped a doctoral degree candidate from India edit his thesis.  From that experience and what little I've seen of your writing I suggest paying close attention to articles and prepositions. 

      I'd also recommend reading hubs from hubbers with high scores.  Don't plagiarize, but learn from them.

      @ChristinS Learning basic grammar skills is one thing which I like doing! Learning is a never-ending process. smile

    Usually Master's in English or Journalism is preferred. But any bachelor degree will do as long as you have flair for writing.

      A degree of any kind is irrelevant.  To write good online articles, you need to write English as fluently as a native speaker. That does not mean grammatically perfect - it means using idioms and colloquial expressions correctly, and writing in a natural, engaging way.   It is unlikely you will learn that in a purely academic atmosphere.

        But Academics + Motivation + Interest + Proficiency in English can bring good results, right? smile

    "Content" generally refers to low paid writing. To do his full time you need to transfer over to copy writing, technical writing and other general freelancing.
