I have been trying to develop my online writing career since 2010. I have written on number of writing sites in the past and I continue to write for couple of writing sites. I also sell my articles on freelance writing sites.
I earn good money by publishing online, however, what I am looking for is steady income.
Let me explain what steady income means.
I earn substantially on Postloop, however, I will be earning on Postloop as long as I’m active on the site. On the day when I post on the entire forums and sites I have subscribed and spend about 2 hours, I make approximately $7. However, on the day when I don’t log into the site, I will earn $0. Being active on the site to make money is tiring.
Apart from forum posting, I also write articles on social blogging sites and writing sites. However, this is also not working for me. I spend 20 minutes writing a post, publish it on a social blogging site and spend about 40 minutes on interaction. I come back on the site after couple of hours, what I see is my post has accumulated just about 10 cents. I work 10 hours in a day and I cannot spend couple of hours making just about a dollar.
In order to make good money from writing sites, I have to spend more time marketing my articles than writing it, which is very frustrating.
I’m looking for other ways to make steady source of income.
