Writing Gigs - "Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You" - Eleanor Roosevelt

I love the above-listed quote because it has become my mantra as a writer. Every day I find either a new writing site or a new challenge. I've started copy writing, which I never thought I would do, at Textbroker.com. My son would be proud, I'm sure, since that's his forte and his paying job. I've also signed up for Constant Content, which allows you to write articles and have customers bid on them. You can also write articles specifically requested by customers/clients, and it is possible to do that at Textbroker.com after you have written a few articles or copy.
I have to keep a list of the sites I'm writing for, since each requires different passwords and has different IDs. Likewise, I don't want to forget some of the sites that I write for, so I keep a small notebook of the sites I'm actively writing for.
I have two columns on Examiner which I had better get back to, but the changeover to the new Pub Tool has made it a little difficult so I've taken some time off from that. Will probably get back to both columns there this week.
Took a break from Suite101 for awhile but need to get back there too. Helium? Associated Content? Word Clerk? I am allowed to write for them--just never have. Maybe someone can tell ME if those sites are worth it.

If you can suggest a good writing site, please feel free to do so. I'm happy to share my finds. One of them is also http://www.myknowledgepublisher.com/, where I have also been qualified to write legal articles. I love that site and try to write a few articles a day. There are topics on that site other than legal. I think the legal pays the best, but there appear to be a lot of topics there and the copy writers are human and humane.

In the meantime, every day I'm trying something new as a writer. I love the Writing World newsletters I get in my inbox; they contain a wealth of information.

I welcome all suggestions re: writing sites and gigs. Please share your favorite sites.

Incidentally, if you are going to be in Camden, Maine on Sept 9, my favorite mystery author, Gerry Boyle, is going to be at the Camden Public Library at 6:30 p.m. promoting his new book. His site is http://www.gerryboyle.com/. His books are worth studying for crisp, clear writing.

All write,


  1. Hi Ronna, thanks for posting this.

    I tried visiting My Knowledge Publisher but it keeps redirecting to Log In page. Do we have to be invited to be able to test and, if we're good, then qualified?

    Thanks before!

  2. Hi Shirley, I checked it out and it appears that it goes to the login page which has nothing else on it. I found this: http://www.nojobformom.com/2009/08/06/another-freelance-writing-opportunity/ , but this is an old article. The pay is a different structure (for legal articles anyway) than it was in 2009. The company is Internet Brands, also known as Sequoia. See if you can try to find out how to get in that way. I hope this helps.
