Interested in Writing for the Web?

Travel With Lamb

How I found The Writer’s College

My love of writing only became apparent to me in August last year whilst living abroad in Thailand. I realised I was experiencing the most amazing things and felt the need to get my stories heard.

Coming across The Writer’s College was the turning point, after signing up for my Writing for the Web course I discovered just how much I needed to learn. Writing a Facebook post or Tweet requires a lot more than FB’s motivator “What’s on your mind?”.  Slightly overwhelmed, I began working through the coursework with my helpful tutor, Karen Lotter.

Motivation for a career in writing

Like print media, there are many different careers within the scope of online writing. These branches were clearly introduced throughout the course which allowed me to explore the options to pursue online journalism. What surprised me was how many jobs were available for online writers and how beneficial my decision was to take my writing career to the web.

I had never considered blogging, this has now turned into my favourite hobby and hopefully soon, a successful venture. You learn the possibility of earning money through blogging and writing content for the web, perfect for those who prefer working for themselves or from home.

Further your writing skills…

I ain’t done. Through The Writer’s College I have learnt the ropes to Writing for the Web, but I plan to take my love for travel blogging further by taking a course in  Travel Writing. The courses on offer are all connected and help you get started with a career in writing and the option to study further in a specific field.

You will need to dedicate time and you catch a glimpse of what it will be like to write full time. I didn’t battle to motivate myself, this is my passion and my first experience of enjoying whilst learning.

    Your language should not be full of jargon. Likewise, do use philosophical or academic language. Just use ordinary language. Keep the format of your writing in report form and do not write as you are selling or advertising something.

    You truly mentioned the burning topic here. Making a career in web content writing is truly challenging one. However, there are several institutes who can guide aspirants to make affluent career in this domain. I would appreciate if you bring some ideas to improve and hone content writing skills.
