Earn Money Writing Articles Online

Updated on January 24, 2017
viking305 profile image

L.M.Reid is an Irish writer who has published many articles in magazines and online.

Online Writing Sites

I always loved writing and so I decided to learn how to write articles online.

I now get paid a monthly income and I love it.

Don't get me wrong it is very hard work and it took me years to know how best to do it. I had been publishing articles for over thirty years in magazines and newspapers.

Using Online Writing Sites
Using Online Writing Sites

Writing Articles

But I found out that writing articles online was completely different. I had to learn about Keyword Research and Search Engine Optimization. How to upload photos and videos onto the articles. And lots more besides.

I have written a journal of 30 days during the first year of my writing experience online. I hope it gives you some encouragement to continue with your writing career.

Online Writing Site - HubPages

I joined a free online writing site at Hubpages. It was the best thing I ever did. The software is very easy to use with lots of tutorials if you get stuck. Every new article, poem or fiction piece has to be approved by the Hubpages staff before you are allowed to publish it.

This is to keep the very high standard of writing that the site is renowned for. If it is sent back for revision and you do not know how to improve it then do not fret.

You can go to the forums and ask some of the many writers there to look at it and give you advice and tips.

I am here four years now and make on average $80 to $140 a month. The second and third year I was getting paid on average $200 to $375 a month.

But that changed for all writers when Google brought out the Panda Change. It was a blow but we got over it. I have kept writing because I love it and i still earn some money every month too.

This journal is about my daily writing life for 30 days during my first year and how I got on. I was only learning about SEO and other internet rules and I needed the help and encouragement. I did not make my first payout of $100 from Google Adsense for around seven months.

You will see from reading this that writing online to earn money is not a get rich quick scheme. It takes a lot of work and time.

Journal of My New Writing Career for 30 days

On the writing site some members had set up a challenge to write 30 articles in 30 days.

Then spend the next thirty days advertising and back linking for the best Search Engine Optimization. How I got on every day of the challenge is written down here

There were days when I was able to spend 12 to 15 hours writing two or three articles and other days when I was so sick that I could not even turn on the computer. I managed to get the thirty articles written by the deadline. It was hard work but the feeling of accomplishment was awesome too.

I had online writing goals which I wanted to fulfill in those 60 days. The HubPages 60 day Challenge is now over for me. Would you like to join HubPages and take part in the next 30 day challenge?

This diary will help you decide. So if you are interested in how I did on a daily basis you can read all about my writing antics here.

Day 1.

Spent the last couple of days doing research for my Google articles. I have decided on the five related to Google that I am going to write

Day 2.

Just published my second article. You can read it from this link below.

Google Sky, Google Moon, Google Mars and GoogleOcean are Google applications that are amazing, educational and fun.

I have also spent a few hours reading, commenting and enjoying a few of the articles that other members of the 60 day challenge have published. I had started to read the hublogs again too and was enjoying reading how others were getting on. But I have to go to bed now for a rest, It is 5.55am here. So will finish reading them tomorrow.

Day 3

Not a very productive day for writing today because my Asthma was bad. So I didn’t get the third one published. I did manage to read quite a few of the updated Hublogs of the rest of the team to see how everyone else was getting on.

Day 4

Managed to get some more research done on my Google articles today, but still not able to be creative to write them. If my Asthma is not too bad, maybe tomorrow.

I got the email from Sunforged though and was able to access the forum. I read his thread on the importance of rss feeds. It’s amazing how things work out. I have been studying about rss for ages. The idea behind it and how to do it properly has evaded me.

When I read sunforged thread it just all clicked together. So I was able to add the rss feeds of other writers on the challenge to my hubs and onto the rss sites that sunforged kindly listed in his rss article.

Further down on that thread another writer explained how to set up an rss feed on to so I was able to do that for the first time too. Learnt a lot today, very grateful and happy about that.

Day 5

My Asthma still not back under control but better. I have managed to get my third Google article published finally. You can read it here.

Google Translate allows easy online translation of websites into 52 languages

I have read some more of the challenge team’s articles and left comments. I plan to enter the forum now and have a look.

Day 6

I have been learning lots more today by reading the discussions on the forum and enjoying it. Read and commented on more articles and checked in on a few of the hublogs to see how everyone is getting on.

Day 7

Where did this first week go to! Time really does fly when you are having fun. It is hard work mind you with studying and understanding so much information. Thank you to all the other writers on the challenge for help and advice received this week.

Doctor Who Articles

Day 1

Managed to get another article on Google published today. I always feel a great deal of satisfaction when this is done. All the research and time seems worth it then. Here is my latest article on Google.

Targeted Google ads help you earn money online

Day 2

I received a pleasant surprise in my email today. A reporter from the newspaper The Irish Examiner emailed me after reading my article about TB in Ireland.

There is an outbreak of TB in a primary school in Cork so it is in the news. He asked for permission to use two of the photos in my article and interviewed me about TB. The article I wrote included interviews from my two aunts who both spent years in a TB hospital when they were 12 and 19 years old.

Another excellent day for learning. Spent most of the day going back on my articles and changing things around. This was in order to maximise my chance of getting Google AdSense ads in the correct place on them. Well worth the time spent.

Day 3

I am enjoying the forum and learning a lot there too. I feel like part of the team and get lots of help when I need it. I managed to get another Google article published today.

I had to do quite a lot of research on this one though. Google really has so much to offer that I did not realise myself until I wrote this.. You can read it here.

Create a Google Blog, display Google Adsense ads on it and earn money online from your Blog.

Day 4

I have started another category for the challenge.

This one is Doctor Who articles. I love watching this science fiction TV show so these articles will be a pleasure to write.

Day 5

My internet connection has been cutting out all day and driving me mad. Managed to publish two new articles though so can’t be bad.

You can read them here.

1, The last complete series of 13 episodes that David Tennant played The Doctor in the Doctor Who Television series

2. Doctor Who DVD Box Set: The Complete Specials with David Tennant.

Day 6

Read a lot of articles from the challenge team. I was also on the forum, I seem to learn something new from there every day which is grand. I also managed to get my third Doctor Who article done and published tonight. The link is below.

David Tennant as The Doctor in the science fiction TV series Doctor Who.

Day 7

Have been writing all day and managed to get two more of the Doctor Who ones done. That’s the last of them now for the challenge. I intend to continue with more of these once the challenge is over. The time really does go very quickly when I am writing. Wish there were more hours in the day.

You can read the two latest Doctor Who articles here.

1. Doctor Who, the second Series with David Tennant as the Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose

2. Doctor Who, the Third Series with David Tennant as The Doctor and Freema Agyeman as Martha.

Writing about History
Writing about History | Source

Day 1.

I was going to leave the Irish history articles I intend to write until the other categories in the 60 day challenge were finished.

I tend to get carried away with this subject and could run out of time to write the other ones.

But I really want to write about the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland and the Arbour Hill Memorial Park here.

I have enough materiel for many articles but will limit myself to just six for the challenge and then write the others when it is over.

Day 2.

Have been putting together the research I have for the Irish history hubs. It is hard to take only a few incidents out and turn them into readable articles.

I decided to write the first one on the visit of President John F Kennedy to Ireland and Arbour Hill Memorial Park. I will use this as an anchor to explain who is buried there and why.

You can read this first Irish history article I have written here.

1. When the President of the United States of America was asked what was the highlight of his trip to Ireland he said. “The highlight? that was the memorial service at Arbour Hill!”

Day 3.

This is hard work but I am loving it. I worked through the night to finish two more Irish history articles. I intended to use the first one as an anchor and when I published it I realised that apart from the short summary of each of the fourteen men who were executed I had no articles ready to upload into the links capsule.

I should have waited really and published the hubs together but once I have written an article I usually can’t wait to share it.

Here are the two I published today.

2. James Connolly executed for his part in the 1916 Easter Rising and his body dumped in a mass grave at Arbour Hill Prison yard. This is his story.

3. Patrick Pearse and William Pearse, two brothers executed after the 1916 Easter Rising. They lie together in a mass grave in Arbour Hill. This is their story.

Day 4.

When I am writing about a subject I love I tend to get distracted when I am researching it. So spend many hours reading and enjoying myself

I did manage to get another Irish history article published even if it was into the early hours of the morning. You can read it here

4. Edward Daly. Executed for his part in the 1916 Easter Rising. His body was thrown into a mass grave. He is remembered in Irish history at ArbourHillMemorial Park in Dublin. This is his story

Day 5.

Spent the whole day writing three more Irish history articles. These had already been researched and only needed to be put together into a readable form. It took me ages though.

I need to concentrate on more commercial articles now. I intend to write five Christmas articles and then the last five on writing articles

One of my online goals is to earn more money online from my writing so I have to put away the Irish history articles till I have the other ones written. Mind you I am very surprised that an article I wrote on Irish Female Convicts Transported to Australia has been Earning me Money.

It is part of the other fifteen Irish history articles I wrote around March and April this year. The others do very well for readership but are not making that much money yet. Maybe the reason is because the article has aged. It is all good though.

Will upload the three articles tomorrow because too tired now and that takes a few hours to do.

Day 6.

Have finished uploading the three Irish history articles I wrote yesterday. I have managed to complete seven on the 1916 Easter Rising here.

I still want to write about the remaining seven men who are buried there and I have quite a few ideas for articles about the participation of the women and the young children who also fought in this Rising. You can read the hubs I have published below.

5. Joseph Plunkett was one of the executed leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. His body dumped in a mass grave at Arbour Hill Prison yard. Joseph Plunkett married his fiancée Grace Gifford and few hours before his death in Kilmainham jail. This is their story.

6. Sean MacDermott was one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising that took place in Dublin Ireland. Sean MacDermott was executed in Kilmainham Jail and his body dumped in a mass grave at Arbour Hill Prison. This is his story

7. Tom Clarke was one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. He was executed and his body dumped in a mass grave at Arbour Hill Prison. This is the story of Tom Clarke and his wife Kathleen.

Day 1.

Have to admit I slept most of the day and then had to go back to bed after just a few hours. And then I slept for a further 11 hours and 40 mins. Think it is called burn out lol.

Was quite annoyed with myself for wasting all that time asleep but sure what can you do, I suppose I needed it.

Day 2.

Still in burn out mode I think. My brain is refusing to work. I can’t seem to get writing again. This is not good at all. I am behind with the articles as it is.

I am doing the Christmas ones next so did some research on those.

Day 3.

I decided to jump in and write the writing articles next instead of the Christmas ones. I managed to publish my first writing one today which I was very thankful about. I really need to get back in gear now because time is running out!

Day 4.

Got three articles published today so very happy with myself if not exhausted. As a member of the Team we are required to complete a summary of each group of hubs we have finished. I did this one on the Irish History Hubs.

2. To read the Summary Hub of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin Hubs click here.

Day 5.

I finished the last two Christmas gift articles and have them published. They took a long time because I wanted them to look good. Getting people to buy from Amazon is I believe a lot to do with presentation as well as good information.

I have achieved that with all four of the Christmas gift articles.

Day 6.

I only managed one article today. I thought this one would only take me a few hours but took me nearly six. So I was too tired to do any more tonight.

I have five left to do and only a few days to complete them. Not sure if I am going to make the dead line.

This next article was the required summary for the challenge of the Doctor Who articles I wrote the week before last. I wish I had listened to some of the more experienced writers in the forum.

They said it was best to write the Summary Hub as soon as you finish the subjects in that category. That way they are fresh in your mind. I did not take heed of this advice and that is why it took so long to write.

7. To read the Doctor Who Summary hub for the 60dc2. Click here.

Day 7.

I have spent about 16 hours finishing the last 5 articles for the challenge. I had a lot of the text written beforehand so was able to publish the five Writing Articles last night and today.

So tired I can hardly think straight but it is a nice tired. I am delighted with my accomplishment on this challenge. The Writing Articles are below.

9. Getting targeted traffic to your articles by joining specific Facebook Groups.

10. How to write that ‘How To’ article.

11. Writing articles online: Keep the reader interested enough to click your Google AdSense Ads

12. The 60 day challenge Summary of Writing Articles hubs.

Day 8.

I was happily reading other articles from the team and visiting the forum. Then I read that the Summary should only be one article for all the thirty we had written during the challenge. And worse still that the summary does not count towards the thirty we are expected to write.

That meant I was five articles short for the challenge and only two days to go! I am working on them now.

Online Writing Classes

The HubPages 60 day challenge has certainly been well worth taking part in and completing

I have achieved all the goals I set out to complete at the beginning of the Challenge. My readers and targeted traffic has increased and so has my Google Adsense earnings. I am now selling approximately ten to twelve items a month on the Amazon online store.

With all I have learnt here at HubPages by taking part in the challenge I know now with complete confidence that my articles will continue to earn me money online here at HubPages.

I hope you enjoyed reading my writing diary and that it has been of some help to you with your writing career. If you like writing then this is the ideal way to earn money online.

If you would like to get paid to write articles online why not join one of the best online writing sites around - HubPages

      Thank you everyone for stopping by to offer me your welcome and encouragement in my commitment to taking part in the 60 Day Challenge. I appreciate it.

      Getting new readers for my Irish history hubs is one of my goals so I am delighted that you have shown an interest in reading them, thank you.

      Yes Lean Man I do plan on doing a hub on the history of Guinness because of their anniversary soon but not on the 60n day challenge, because it will be half history and half commercial, so you can relax for a while Lol.

      Johnyater The Irish history time scale I will be concentrating on here on the 60 day challenge will be for the period of 1912 to 1923. I will be writing about 5 men and women that took part in major events during that time and their personal stories.

      I look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you better.

For instance, The Pillars of the Earth. I want to write something like that one day, but history books can be dry and boring. Good luck in the challenge!

      Faybe Bay thanks for reading my hublog. I am delighted you love writing and reading history. I am leaving my Irish history hubs till last. Because I know I will get too immersed in the subject. Thought I better get the other ones done first because of the time restraint.

      I agree with you that history books can be dry and boring. That is why with all the history articles I write I always find the human angle and put people into the time in history I want them to experience. That way the reader cares about them and then cares about the historical events too.

    • viking305 profile image

      L M Reid 6 years ago from Ireland

      Thanks Pamela I have had a few days now without publishing a hub but got another one done today. Thanks for your encouragement I appreciate it.

      Very encouraging to read this. As I struggle to get views on my hubs, I become discouraged easily and after reading this article it motivated me to try harder, write more, and promote my work. It really helps to see how the process has worked for you and encourages me to keep at it.

      Voting up and sharing. Thank you!

      Thank you everyone for taking the time to leave a comment.

      Kim I am glad the site helps with research for your college work.

      asherruth. I wrote that hub last year and I have learnt a lot more since that time. I am earning a few hundred every month now even after Panda so it has really been worth all the hard work and learning process.

      The other hubbers on the challenge, especially the seasoned hubbers were a great help during my low points during that time.

      Definitely keep writing and learning. The rules especially were Google is concerned change all the time but the one thing that does not change is the more quality hubs you write the more traffic and earning you will get.

      Thanks for sharing too because since I start sharing other peoples work and they mine I have seen a big jump in organic traffic too.
