Freelance Writing Gigs

Are you a writer? Do you have the desire to become a writer? Do you need help writing? Do you want to get freelance writing gigs? Then this article is for you. I'm going to explain how to create a decent and worthy article in no more than an afternoon's worth of work. This article is the kind of thing you can submit to those article submission sites or put on your own website. If you get enough interest, you could put an advertisement or two on the article page and make some money. The sky is the limit. Well, maybe not the sky, but the ceiling of your bedroom might be just as good.

First things first. You need to find a topic. There are lots of subjects out there, so it's not going to be difficult. As a matter of fact, you might have already written about some things that are interesting to you. Do you still have copies of those term papers you did in college or high school? Maybe you think I'm kidding, but I'm not. You might find some real gold in them thar hills! I know I've written some clever papers in the past, mostly about film or Scandinavian things, and sometimes about Scandinavian film subjects.

For the pupose of this article, I'm going to create an essay about aurora borealis. I know absolutely zero about it except that they are pretty and happen somewhere up north. As a matter of fact, I couldn't even be sure of the spelling of borealis until I typed "aurora b" into the Google search box and it presented "aurora borealis" to me. Neat. Now, if you want to go through the process with me, visit the Google Adwords keyword link:

https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

In the "Word or phrase" box, enter:

aurora borealis

When I do this, I receive a bunch of Keyword Ideas. Sort the list by Global Monthly Searches. Pick six or seven of the ones that sound good, such as "where can i see the aurora borealis" and "what is aurora borealis". See that many of the keywords listed appear similar. That's OK. Just choose ones that are at least a bit unique from one another.

No, visit Google and enter your first keyword. Look for a page that makes sense. For example, for my first keyword "where can I see the aurora borealis", the first website that pops up is "10 Best Places To See The Northern Lights". Click on that URL and check over the information. Depending on what you find, you should be able to rewrite a paragraph or three of information. Do not, and I repeat, do not copy the information you find on a website verbatim. Not only is it plagiarism, it will come back to haunt you one of these days. Instead, try to paraphrase, and if at all possible, gather your information from several different sites. Also, refer to these sites in your writing, just like I'm doing here, so readers browsing your piece can find links of relevant information. By doing this, you make the Internet a kinder, gentler place. It's a karma thing.

Find all the information that you need in order to write up a short piece on the topic. About 500 words will do for your write-up. The point is, at the end of your exercise, you will have a sufficiently good article that gives readers enough info to entice, so that they might click on an included link to find out more. Don't give them too much, as you want them to have a reason to want further details. It's a balancing act, but I think if you err towards too much information, you'll be better off.
