Nowadays information is power, the more information you have, the more powerful you are. This is what I believe. People are always looking for information. The net is considered the most user friendly, trusted,and also the most easily accessible source of information.
Many writers whether the professionals or the amateurs use this information gateway as a tool to disseminate their ideas; that is through writings.
Advertisers also take this chance to promote their products. Through popular websites where people gather their writings to be read such as the e.How, Squidoo, Ecopywriters and Life123 , companies are willing to pay the authors for the adverts banner posted on these webs. This is where writers who love to write or people who love to share their thoughts are being paid! This is also where side income earnings will flow in their pockets every months.
Earnings through writing is quite easy. Just write what you know most, spell check your writings and submit to those websites. Plus don't forget to promote your articles so that people would come and read your articles!
