Writing for the web can be hard to do and is not for everyone. Web writing has a whole lot of rules and regulations that needs to be followed to become successful at it. Here are for lessons that I learned from writing for the web:
4 Lessons Learned
1. Don’t Give Up – It is easy to get discourage when first attempting to write a blog or article on a website. Websites that are not your own has rules and regulations that the writer needs to abide by for your blog or article to get published. It is quite natural to get the writer’s blog or article rejected due to failure to comply with the rules and regulations of the website.
When I first started out getting my feet wet in writing for the web, I ran into a lot of article rejection for payment on Yahoo Contributor Network. The most recurring reason why my articles got rejected for upfront payment was simply that there was not a market on Yahoo Contributor Network for the genre I was writing for.
2. Accept Failure – When first writing for the web, there will be a lot of failed attempts getting published on a website – failure comes with the business. What will make or break a writer who wants to be successful at writing for the web is whether or not the writer is willing to accept failure.
When I first started out writing for the web, a lot of failure came my way due to various reasons. At first, I did not accept the failure well and gave up for a little while. But I finally decided that I would not give into accepting that I was a failure at writing for the web. I then decided to be determined to adapt to whatever way was necessary to receive upfront payment for my articles on Yahoo Contributor Network.
3. Learn from Rejection – Learning from the writer’s rejected blogs or articles plays a vital role in being successful for writing for the web. Being open-minded to the reason(s) why the writer’s blog or article got rejected will help in correcting future rejections.
When I first started writing for the web, I experience many rejected articles for upfront payment on Yahoo Contributor Network. But once I began to be open to why my articles got rejected, I began wanting to change the way I wrote and formatted my articles for a better chance to receive upfront payments for my articles.
4. Fine-Tune Skills – Fine-tuning the writer’s writing skills for web writing will help bring success to the writer’s writing endeavors on the web. Learning to adapt to the way the particular website wants the writer to write the blog or article will definitely help the writer become successful at writing for the website.
Once I finally was willing to adapt to whatever way Yahoo Contributor Network wanted me to write my articles, I began searching for help on how to do so. I searched the Yahoo Contributor Network website and found classes that would help me fine-tune my writing skills for the site – I have graduated from the classes and am successful because of it!
