Writing for fun and money

So you like writing?

So you do?

Start using the World Wide Web as your surfboard to more experience and more views of your articles!

Oh... And the extra money won't hurt, won't it!?

I have read so many articles from and always respected those chosen to write for them. Like Hubpages they are a great place to find a gigantic flood of information!

I honestly would have never thought I would actually make it on there!

It's not quite as easy to write for them as it is for Hubpages! I myself have noted on a few articles that were just so poorly written that it hurt to read them. Or the text of the article was something that should border anybody with some standards.

And I am not talking about English issues. I am a foreign born myself and English is definitely not my first language!

If you like to write and know a little about your local area, here is your chance to shine! You start out 'little' by writing about just one subject. But when you show that you are a good writer and you know what you are talking about, your subjects extend to just about anything!

I personally picked feral cats; an issue that is dear to my heart! I don't have to be a total subject matter expert like some other websites require, but it takes a little more than just writing down your thoughts to come up with a good article!

BUT, I love a challenge! I want to grow as a writer and educate myself on those things that mean something to me! I want to become knowledgeable with those things that I talk about!

And maybe, my knowledge can benefit others!

Maybe I can make a difference in those areas important to me!

I read a ton of great articles on here and I became their follower! They have so much to offer and I am looking forward to reading more!

And I will use both pages to widen my 'audience'; both to give them information I may have and learn from their knowledge and feedback!

And maybe I can earn a few bucks on the side that will benefit my efforts in Animal Rescue.

Money doesn't hurt, does it?

      Great info about the examiner-I will have to check it out real soon. Money sure doesn't hurt at all. With the bad economy--money would come in handy no matter how little or how much it is. Great hub, and I voted up. The photo is really nice and colorful.

      Try it out. It's a little more for somebody who can write 'good' articles using proper ways of writing. But it also sets apart the good writers from those that just smear something down.

      I was hopping some hubs last night and saw some really awful stuff. I wish people would at least use spell check and think about what they are writing before they post it!
