Hello East Coast Hubber!
Nice to meet you. I'm over 40-years of age. I hope I can help.
I started to write in 2009 and I still write to this day. I write articles, have a few blogs and a couple of websites. I do now earn residual income each month.
I do have written a few hubs sharing basic practices I do that helps me continue to expand online and each month I get a little bit better.
I can say that going through the motions of writing and getting past the learning curve is something I feel that all people who write online need to do. I knew nothing when I started but over time I learned what works for me.
You can visit my profile to browse and hopefully some of my hubs can help you along.
Here is one hub that I feel should help you.
If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me through Hubpages. You can visit my website that is listed on my profile to see for yourself how far I've come in almost three years. Best of luck to you and don't give up because it does get better.
