You Too Can Make Money As A Writer

Money 3

Many contact me on LinkedIn’s platform if I could suggest or introduce a website, whereby they can write articles to be paid. As a matter of fact, there are hundreds of websites that accept articles from writers, but most to promote your articles, thus; someone may hire you if interested in you as a writer, but gaining recognition as a writer to be hired doesn’t come easy.

It seems when the mind is occupied with various plans and ideas, we ignore or forget the places where we need to explore to make money online as a blogger or writer. Many bloggers, including me, make money online. Bear in mind, the significance of this article has got nothing to do with pride or to boast, it’s an article revealing how many people can make a lot of money monthly by blogging or writing interesting articles as a hobby.

There is nothing which is impossible in this modern time, especially when the advancement in technology has no limit. There are so many tools to create free blogs without paying a cent. Online are lists of free websites and blog hosts, including Blogger and WordPress, which you can make a lot of money every month, by registering for Adsense.

Google AdSense is a free, simple way for website publishers of all sizes to earn money by displaying targeted Google ads on their websites. Apart from Google AdSense, there are other adverts sources that generate money on blogs, depending on how interesting the blog is and the number of people that visit the blog.

There are many books on this subject, including numerous articles online, but as a writer, I maintain certain principles to make my articles worthy to read and generate my money. You don’t need to go to the university to earn a degree before becoming a blogger. An illiterate can blog in his or her mother tongue if he can’t speak English to generate money on his or her blog.

When one wants to write an article that can easily be accepted by the print media for publication, choose topics like teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, crime or any other social problems affecting the society to write about. The print media don’t like them but love them.

Choose good titles for your articles and when writing, let readers know the effect of the chosen subject you are writing about. You could even suggest how the government should tackle the problem by reducing or permanently eradicating it.

Don’t try to impress the publisher by writing long articles; else the article may lose its significance. Let your article be short, with all the ingredients that make it interesting to read. You will be happy to sit by your dining table reading your own written article or getting paid for the customers your blog attracts.

 

Scams, Frauds And Publishing Frauds Lurking On The Internet In Search For Easy Prey

“Every aspiring writer who wants to be successful author should keep away from Dorrance and RoseDog publishers”- Author Joel Savage.

In a world dominated by crime, greed, selfishness and less love for people, don’t expect to be the beneficiary of someone’s wealth if you don’t know the person. There are philanthropists worldwide, they know where their money go, to gain back and if you are poor and dream of becoming rich through a rich man, then that dream is a dream of illusion, because that rich person wants to get that little money you have to add to his own. The reason the greed of rich people is stronger than the poor man.

Dorrance 9

Dorrance publishing. They say “Publish Your Book with America’s Oldest Publishing Services Company” but they are America’s oldest publishing criminals.

Despite the warnings online, every year thousands of people fall victim to internet frauds. Thieves, rogues and bad companies, cleverly work out schemes with the intention to defraud the public and they do succeed, because they know that lack of investigation enables people to fall victims to their  online underworld activities. You may think you are clever, so it may never happen to you, until you are swept of your feet.

As an aspiring writer, with the desire to become an author, despite all efforts to avoid publication frauds, I ended up in the same hot soup I was trying to avoid. I lost close to $4,000 to bad publishers, Dorrance and RoseDog Publishers, without getting my two books published. The two publishers are under the same management. Since then whenever, I get the chance to write, I keep warning, especially up-coming writers and authors to keep away from such publishers, because their intentions are to defraud.

Rosedog 2

Rosedog

Rose Dog is owned by Dorrance Publishing, a subsidy publisher. Rose Dog is expensive, charging a lot more than most POD publishers: $1400 for basic publishing services (not including distribution, marketing packages and copyediting). They do have a marketing package for $2400 which includes the mailing of promotional pieces to about 300 addresses and sending out 25 review copies of the books.  They do provide proofreading services (which they call copyediting) at $2.50 per page plus a fee of $25.

Another online social platform designed to defraud is ‘Fanbox.’ http://www.fanbox.com/socnet/. They preyed on Asians and the vulnerable. Calling it ‘Social Experiment’ you are deceived of earning large amount of money. To protect that amount you pay commission on that earned money, which they deduct monthly after giving them your credit card details.

fanbox

A social platform which has defrauded thousands of its members with false earnings.

People need to be smart, if you have earned such an enormous amount, perhaps $2,500, deductions can be taken from that amount. They have gone far by adding comments of members who claim of cashing certain amounts, just to lure you onto the platform.

The Writer’s Conclusion:

When you receive such mail, ignore it completely. However, if you want to investigate further who the person is, for example Karen Carlson whom the letter came from, just try to find out who she is. I did it and the result was:

Karen Carlson was born on January 15, 1945 in Shreveport, Louisiana, USA. She is an actress and producer, known for The Candidate (1972), The Octagon (1980) and Days of Our Lives (1965). She was previously married to Devin Payne and David Soul.

From every angle, you can see that the intention of the writer is to defraud. Be careful over such friendly mails. They are destined to harm you.
