My name is Marsha Musselman and I’ve been writing articles on a handful of sites around the internet for a few years.
Many writers began writing at an early age and expected that they would have a career in writing one day. Some, like a friend of mine, went to college for a journalism degree and worked the past 20+ years at her local paper.
I don’t know what the percentage might be of those writers that invested their time into more schooling or work involving some type of writing (like she did). I, however, was not one who did. I’m different from the normal group of writers in that I did not do well in school with writing assignments.
In the seventh grade my mother began taking me and my siblings to the local library every two weeks. It didn’t take long and I began to read more and more. Since that time I’ve had a love for books, but it wasn’t until I was in my thirties that I began to consider doing something with writing.
Since then as my first blog post mentions briefly, I have had articles posted on various sites. I have made money off two of those sites. The better of the two paid me every time I accrued $10.00 in my account, which was about ever three months or so. All told I made approximately $125.00 there. Since then they have changed their payment plan to only have those with degrees in journalism write for them, one thing I do not have.
Another site paid me up front for writing five articles. They said they’d pay me thirty dollars and paid me forty dollars instead. That was last October. Even though it is expected to be a paying site, no more money has come to me from them.
So, this blog will mainly be a blog about places on the internet in which a writer can make money whether they want to blog, write articles, e-books or whatever.
From time to time I may write about other topics.
