Another idea if you are looking to Work from Home is writing. You can write articles, blogs, stories, fiction or non-fiction, it really depends on the website and editor you choose to write for. You can write for magazines and online writing websites. Believe or not there are tons of writing websites, you just have to find them.
There is more to it than putting pen to paper and plugging away on your laptop, home or office computer. Firstly you need to read the guidelines for each website you are thinking of writing for and take note of other stories that have been published.
Also, do some research on your chosen topic. Once you chose your topic you will need to Pitch it to the Editor of the website, or the person responsible for writing from freelancers. Whoever it may be, make sure you give your pitch to the right person.
What is a Pitch?
A pitch is basically your idea of a story. You will need to explain your point of view and your argument for this story. Explain why you think your idea is great, important and unique, and of interest to readers. Once this is accomplished, you may or may not be offered the job.
If you are not given the job don’t give up, stay focused and try another website or try the same website when you feel more confident about your writing skills. If you are accepted great, go for it. It could be the start of things to come.

I have picked these particular websites as they all pay over $50 per article, post or story. Some of the websites listed pay $400, this is of course usually paid for a longer article maybe 2-3 thousand words.
It isn’t just the money aspect of website writing, you need to be proud of your writing work and feel self-esteem within yourself. Feel a sense of achievement, in that you have produced something wonderful. There is a lot of competition in the writing field but never give up, if it is a goal you have set yourself (which is a good idea) go for it and tell yourself that you can do this no matter what.
There is an array of topic choices to choose from among the 61 writing websites that are listed so I am sure you easily find a topic to write about.
To Your Success
