Writers Wanted for The Writers Business | Where to Find Writing Jobs Online | Columnist Wanted

Updated on June 24, 2011

Writers Wanted!

Believe it or not fellow searcher, one can in fact make a sustainable living online by responding to the various writers wanted calls across the net.

Is it easy? No, but it is easier than you think.

Are you capable of writing about ANY topic ?

Can you quickly research an article idea?

Can you follow strict writing formats?

If you answered yes, to any ONE of those questions than there is always a way for you to make money from your writing online.

There are hundreds if not thousands of open opportunities saying WRITERS WANTED across the net, the trick is to figure out which model best fits your experience and capabilities and then select the best paying solutions out of those opportunities.

It isnt to easy, it is in fact the Writers Business, not writers play, but there are tons of opportunities, fun to be had and income to be made.

So what kind of writer are you?

Are you adept at explaining complex principles, particularly in the science and technology fields in simple easy to understand language ?

Technical writer wanted

A big demand exists for this small subset of writing, large contracts exist for writing user manuals and opportunities of all sizes can be found at most freelancing sites. A quick glance around any traditional job posting service will usually have a handful of these opportunities available at any time.

Content Writer wanted

Good Content Writers are always in demand, every site on the net is hungry for new content. In addition to the constantly updating freelance opportunities below many partnership companies have sprung up to help provide webmasters with a reputable and consistent supply of information for their sites.

If you can take any topic, research it and write concise text that is still enjoyable to read then content writing is for you.

A good starting point if you are new to online writing is Associated Content

If you are a strong writer and willing to work in a more speculative but higher paying field than Constant Content is for you. Constant Content can easily offer you 50-100 USD per well composed article, you can also exhibit your existing portfolio of writing and offer licensing and usage rights

Columnist wanted

Perhaps your previous experience falls into the more traditional model of columnist or newspaper writer. Do you freelance for your local paper, did you edit your college newspaper (I did) are you comfortable writing consistently within one specific theme or about a specific region.

Then The Examiner is your best bet, be a syndicated, respected journalist and get paid for it.

Open Writing opportunities

Perhaps writing to guidelines or deadlines isnt your style, well there are still plenty of opportunities for you. This site HubPages allows writers to select their own topics, profit from them and learn the ropes for bigger opportunities. There are similar sites on the web but HubPages has the most authority, shares the most pay and has the best support community of peers

Learn about the Top Ten Best sites to write for on the web

Closed Networks are best for Long Term Success

Open Doors limit Quality Control and cohesiveness, the following is my top recommendation. But, admission is limited. Its worth a try though!

Best HubPages Alternative

- For a short time, the Xobba Network is accepting new writers that are exiting the HubPages and eHow models. The majority of the opportunities are reserved for closed door discussions, but if you consider yourself to be a writer or marketer who puts forth their best effort and would like to move towards self sufficiency in your online writing career ... you should look into Xobba

The application process is informal -begin discussion about Xobba Opportunities, be prepared to show existing portfolio examples and converse briefly about marketing models you follow. Serious Inquiries will be rewarded, it is worth your time and the offer is only open for a very limited time. Traditionally, the network is invite only.

Xobba features

  • 90% In Post Impression Share
  • Geo-Locating Amazon Impression Share
  • Backend tools including link shorteners and image editing
  • Hyper Responsive Administration
  • A community of writers from DS and HubPages

  • Rewards that include Free Hosting and SEO tasks

  • ..more

Contact Xobba with your interest and background - the best opportunities are never public

      @eculligan, Funny Thing, I just got the new Writers Market in the mail today and I was reminded of this rather dead hub. I got discouraged with this hub as HP publishing rules kept me from using full feeds for all the jobs, so I was unable to actually make the good resource that I had imagined.

      What I ended up having to do was build a whole website instead. So keep an eye on, Ill add a Technical Writing section for you in the next week or so. Thanks for swinging by!

      @Les Trois Chenes, there are usually ways around such things, I mostly only write about that which I have first hand experience with but Ill see if I can figure out where your from and send you off regional opportunities in writing ops

      @Kartika You have commented on other articles in this series so much of the information will be familiar BUT this Hub is unique that it is constantly being updated with real job opportunities in the feeds. So if you check back on your bookmark you will always have job opps ar at least ideas

      @Aqua, in all online income sources, maybe just all income in general creating multiple sources and streams really ads to your security, an din my case I thrive on the variety

      Thanks for stopping by!

      You're right - there are tons of opportunities out there for those of us who like to write. I believe diversity is *key* when writing in the online world. The more sites one writes for, the better.
