How did you start writing?

Goodness, I’m a busy person this week. I have been writing as a ghostwriter for a while, but I don’t know that I’ve everhandwriting.jpg had such a busy week. I sure hope I can meet all of my deadlines. I have something due every day this week, except tomorrow, but I’m going to be working my butt off trying to work on everything that’s due.

One of the things that I love about ghostwriting is that I have an opportunity to learn about new subjects. So, this week I’ll be learning some new things – things that may be helpful in future business work, educational opportunities, and gardening. Luckily, I’m interested in all of these things.

You may be wondering how I got started as a ghostwriter, so I’d like to tell you my story. I started out, thanks to my friend, doing work for a paid posting company. You can do a search on any search engine for “paid posting forums.” There are a number of websites that hire people to do paid posting on forums. You won’t get paid a lot of money, as a general rule, but it’s a foot in the door.

If you have a blog, you might also be able to find work writing paid blog posts – search for “blogging paid posting positions.” Obviously, you would get paid more posting on a blog than you would on a forum. Or at least I would hope so.

From that point, I started doing editing, which then led to writing. The process hasn’t been a fast one, but I’ve been thankful for each step forward. I don’t know if I’ll make as much money writing for online sources as I have in the past as an administrative assistant, but I’m not complaining. I get to stay at home with my kids, homeschooling them, and I get to choose when I work.

If you’ve ever considered writing as a career, you might want to check into some of these same avenues. Let me know if this information is helpful. And, if you have questions, you’re welcome to ask. I may not know all of the answers, but I’ll do what I can to help you out.

Be blessed and have a great Tuesday!
