Creative Writing Jobs Online: Can New Writers Get Paid As Freelance Content Writers?

Updated on February 1, 2010

Instead of joining millions of new writers who are struggling to find creative writing jobs online or offline, you can take control of your writing career and get paid as a freelance content writer.

Since traditional publications are becoming less profitable, they are forced to cut writing jobs as well as other jobs. Even if you manage to get a writing job, you really don't know if you're going to have job security in the future. Due to many print publications going bankrupt or closing their doors due to dwindling profits, many long-term writers have lost their jobs.

How do you keep this from happening to your own writing career?

By working in an industry that will just keep on growing, you can avoid or minimize the financial hardship that affects millions of people in a tough economy. The Internet is not going away -- it's only going to get bigger and bigger. Billions of people worldwide are dependent on useful information provided by the Internet. Businesses generate billions of dollars from the Internet.

Without quality content, the Internet will not stay useful for billions of people all over the world. So, people who can create quality online content will always be needed.

If you're a new writer or a seasoned writer, the Internet can offer a goldmine of amazing opportunities. Content writers will always be needed to write quality articles. Creative people will always be needed to create quality images, designs, applications and other content for many websites online.

This is great news for millions of new writers interested in becoming a writer as well as seasoned writers who have lost their jobs. Instead of trying to get a traditional job, you can work as a freelance writer. By becoming successfully self-employed, you can avoid the financial meltdown that millions of people go through when they lose their jobs repeatedly.

Freelance writing can be a recession-proof way of making money online. Why? If you're a skilled freelance writer, you can write articles for many individuals and companies that need quality content online. You can write about various topics, products and services -- you have many choices! If one particular freelance writing market slows down and is no longer profitable, you can easily switch to a more profitable one.

In addition to financial rewards, freelance writing has many health and psychological benefits:

  • You can have a flexible schedule. You can work part time or in your spare time. You can take some time off whenever you want -- for as long as you want.
  • You can work at home or anywhere in the world. You can stop commuting to work and avoid dealing with traffic jams.
  • You have more control of your time. So, you can achieve work-life balance and spend more time with your loved ones.
  • You can have a healthier lifestyle. You can get out of the 9-5 rat race and reduce your stress.
  • You can have more fun. You can write about topics that you enjoy and find interesting.
  • By writing articles that can help solve people's problems, you can make a difference in people's lives with your writing.

If you have good writing skills and you want to generate income from your writing, you don't have to keep struggling to find a creative writing job online or offline. You can get started as a freelance writer today.

Many people dream of becoming a writer, but they do not take action. Instead of learning by doing and developing their writing skills, they never get started. Instead of enjoying the rewards of writing, they just keep putting it off.

Have you been dreaming of becoming a writer? Do you want to get paid writing? You owe it to yourself to just get started.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can… begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
