Wait, hold up; location is important? I live in rural Canada. There isn’t much of a writing market here, besides local newspapers (most of which do not have websites). Do you really need a local marketing company to hire you? I thought the whole point of writing for the internet is you could ‘do it from your own home’. I’ve lived here all my life and never heard of any online agencies ‘based’ nearby. What defines ‘local’ anyway? The same town? Riding? State/province? Time zone? I want to write for the sites which are popular and interest me, not only local sites. Or am I stuck? Can anyone give any advice to the more secluded writers?

Most articles fetch roughly $50 each, depending on the length and depth. National publications may pay $1,000 or more per article. If magazine writing is your dream, it’s a great work-at-home job for writers.

And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”

2. Be a Freelance Blogger Now, how many times did I have to do this? Maybe a handful? Is it risky? Of course. You’re now opening the door for the job to not be seen through to completion, which could mean you don’t get paid for all of the time, or maybe you get paid and receive neutral or negative feedback.
