Having been an online writer since Christmas 2007, I can only say the experience has been entirely positive. I discovered an online publisher quite by accident and I'm so pleased I did. This was Helium.com which closed in 2014. I also wrote for Triond which closed too.

Many writers would never have the opportunity to write to a worldwide audience if it were not for reputable sites such as HubPages. It offers some of the best possibilities to progress as an Internet writer.

Any real remuneration from being an online writer is practically zero and will likely never put bread on the table - except for a select few who will miraculously meet all the right people in all the right places at all the right times! It's never happened to me yet, so do something else if the accumulation of money is your only real objective for writing.

There is great satisfaction, however in knowing that someone on the other side of the planet can read an article you've written. The fact that they will gather knowledge and gain some benefit from it, is heartening. Writing for HubPages provides the opportunity to change lives for the better in some small way. The spread of knowledge is in a category all of its own - quite apart from the acquisition of money.

Much of my writing had been sitting in a drawer gathering dust, so becoming an online writer has not only given me the chance to publish my writing but has also provided me with the inspiration to write more.

If you like one of my articles and feel others may benefit from it, feel free to place it on social media or any appropriate sites and forward links to friends, family and business associates. All feedback is most welcome, both positive and negative. Response will be given by me in all instances within a reasonable timescale.

I think everyone can do something useful in the world by passing on relevant information that's helpful to others. The main thing to remember nowadays is that with the Internet at your fingertips, you can really make a positive difference to someone, somewhere by sharing your knowledge and experience of life.
