Making Money Online As A Writer
Lots of Bang2writers ask me how they can make money as a writer. The good news is, this is easy nowadays. The bad news – you may have to write stuff you don’t actually want to!
I started as a content writer waaaaaay back when I was still a teen single mum. This was before social media and even before blogs because virtually no one was online … I actually got my start writing ‘advertorials’ for newspapers!
I’ve written about everything under the sun … Incontinence pads, dog breeds, arguing with your teen, how to change a tyre, what you can find in hedgerows, National Trust properties, exam and course prospectuses, poisonous mushrooms … You name it!
