  1. I’m new to internet writing. I have a blog to start. From what I can gather you have to be a prolific writer (several pieces per day) with good content. That’s challenging.

  2. Writing articles on the web is a great way to earn residual income, but to be successful takes time as well as hard work – simply creating hundreds of articles will not work – you have to invest time in research, SEO and produce quality – with the recent Google Algorithm change Quality is far more important!

    • That is true. It does take time, research, and of course good quality content to really make money with writing.
