      Writing for fun or creatively generally won't make you money online. smile

    I can hon my skills towards enlightening people, i'v gone through a whole lot and i'd really like to make a difference in someone by sharing my experiences and what not, so i don't really care about the money, if i make some or not, at least what i share may be able to make a difference and that is what matters to me smile

      If you want to make a difference, you need to learn how to generate traffic; and that generates money. smile

          It took me more than six months to learn the basics; most of them have to be learnt, not taught. You can start with the FAQ and the learning centre.

        If you want to make a difference, you need to generate traffic, yes. But you also need to write grammatically and well. So far, your spelling and punctuation isn't that of a good writer. And, yes, I'm the grammar police...

          I sometimes get carried away when writing because i have gotten used to writing rhymes and using short forms. That will have to change and that is  why the learning process comes in place. Thank you for enlightening me on that.

            I understand that, but they are not acceptable. The word, gotten, could have a more elegant replacement. Can you think what it is and rewrite that sentence in a more elegant and thoughtful way? Short forms are not acceptable!

            Anyway, would love to see something you have written...

            How about writing something today and letting us know. You can't post the link here. You can just say that your first hub is ready. smile

              I think that is more elegant, is it not?

              Given that i have not done this before, i would appreciate it if you corrected and gave me pointers if you come across any faults.
