Why Writing Online is so good for me
Life has many challenges
My life changed quickly. Working as a chambermaid, in a foreign country was my most difficult time living in Croatia.
I quit and decided to work for myself.
I had a schedule of twenty eight rooms daily, that was just too much. I know, I deserved better than that, and at that time I had no choice.
In the beginning I had many issues to live in Croatia.
The six years wait for documents was frustrating.
I felt at my worst, and didn't feel part of this place for a long time. The strict laws I fully understood the law.
Though, married to a Croatian my chances of earning the opportunity to become a citizen should have been an automatic response.
One of the reasons for the long wait, I had to let authorities know I am capable of speaking the language.
The process from living on visas, then temporary to permanent residency was stressful.
When I did receive my citizenship I was free of any mishaps and continued living, the thing is I never stopped living in the first place which made life for me much easier afterward.
My work was exciting at times, communication was my priority, but as a foreigner in this country or any country it can be difficult to have a job you really enjoy.
It was a seasonal job but there were many hard days, and during that time, I had wished I wouldn't work that way. Life for me was tough, and with a second salary my life was slightly easier.
The difficult times made me go forward with my writing.
I worked during the summer and tried to keep up with writing when I had the time. Working was a great experience, talking to guests was great. Just I an English speaker in a five star hotel was a good experience.
I worked there four seasons and had to put up with an abusive boss.
I was thrilled to have started work. I was very happy.
I looked looked forward to work with each day ahead, including on Sundays. I started feeling unhappy after a year.
I had to get out of that miserable life.
I did not know what to expect when going to the office every morning. The boss's moods were unexpected.
An abusive boss who would shout at other chambermaids for no reason. She would yell and others were silent when going into the office every morning.
The short woman spoke with a hoarse voice and would make most of the Chambermaids feel less intelligent and insecure of their thoughts. I did not let that happen to me.
I didn't give this woman the chance of treating me that way. I felt bad for the others who were used to that lifestyle.
During the winter I wrote for other writing sites and earned fairly well. I don't regret leaving that job.
From then on, my life got better in so many ways:
I got up with a smile every morning.
No more body aches.
I felt easy with myself.
The daily chores weren't hard to cope with at home.
My life was finally back on track.
I got rid of the colds that I had more than once a year
I didn't miss anything about my work, not even the coworkers.
I no longer needed to answer to an abusive boss or any boss.
I didn't have to get up at five in the morning and wait on the bus in the cold and rainy days.
Everything for me felt normal again and I chose to work for myself not only writing but also village tourism.
The many challenges I faced has made me who I am today, courageous and much stronger at heart.
My personal experience.
What is great for me about Online Writing?
Why is online Writing challenging?
If you want to create superb content you got to be smart in what you write, and do it with great pride.
Be clear about what you write online.
A good writer doesn't lack ideas and a good writer doesn't have bad ideas.
Readers want information, and quick detailed information.
If you are an average writer on line it works well enough the main point deliver a good article with all information required.
Be the best you can be when writing on line.
Good writing is important just as good grammar.
However, not many writers have the best of grammar, and it is understandable that most writers on line are trying to write in the English language. In some cases English is not their first language, and mistakes made that are often not noticed. Amazingly enough, the article is published and read by many on line.
I learned more of the requirements for an online writer.
The writer must be to the point, write an informative article, and have a good presentation.
Avoid bad grammar, or spelling mistakes.
The problem with online writing, there are many articles published with major errors.
Those with the best grammar are our editors.
Ideas don't come through easily if you are not a good writer.
Readers are plentiful on line, and readers will continue coming back until one day they realize your work is not good enough.
Why do readers read on line?
Content on line is more entertaining, and they are looking for something different, and more of other genres.
Do you think a writer can be successful on average writing?
The answer, YES.
If you are an average writer, you will always be an average writer.
Th readers who care about what they read, require good content. There are readers who don't care what kind of content they read.
The wonderful part of writing on line, if you produce great content you will impress both kinds of readers.
If you are the average writer only some of the audience will be interested in your content.
Don't let this point slip your mind as I have learned, quality content doesn't necessarily mean great achievements.
The amount of effort you put in counts for the best success as goes to show of how you market your content.
Be proud of your work, instead making your focus on earnings, think about the great content presented to your readers. Something that one can talk about.
Great quality doesn't die out, it is here to stay.
My life allowed me to go forward by writing on line, and sharing my personal experiences. The more I write of what I know, the more I want to share my knowledge with my great supporters.
Can you be Successful in On line Writing?
Do you sometimes think of giving up writing?
Certain days can make a writer feel down and insecure about going on with writing.
Don't let anything get in the way of your writing.
You must write if you want to show great achievements.
I once got myself wondering if writing is for me?
Is writing for me?
How can I find out more about writing?
You don't need to put yourself on the spot or doubt yourself as a writer.
Writers stumble and fall and pick themselves up very fast.
Before you think of yourself as a great writer know the meaning of real success in writing.
Sometimes a writer needs to be inspired or to be focused on a specific topic before attempting to write.
Ideas come and go just relax all can workout out if you know your direction.
Write When you feel at your best
