Hi there,

“Can You Really Work from Home?” This has been our topic for the last 3 weeks. We’ve been giving you ideas on different businesses you can easily start from home. The internet is filled with opportunities and if you’re willing to put a little dedication and hard work into a business, then you definitely CAN make money.

The opportunities are there for the taking, and we’re hoping our business ideas will give you a good feel for those opportunities and how to make money with them.

Moving on this week, we want to talk about another great and actually quite cool business – Writing. If you enjoy writing then you can easily start getting paid to write. And if you think writing online is only for people who have a “gift” or are born writers then let us put that myth to rest right now – writing for the internet is very different to writing a term paper or a best-selling novel.

Writing for the internet, which is a very high-demand field, involves the skill of writing in a friendly conversational tone. If you can talk and tell stories than you can certainly write. However, you will need to be able to do a little research, have good grammar and spelling skills. Adapting to different writing styles is also important.

A good way to get started writing for pay is to build a simple website where prospective clients can go to learn more about your services, rates, view writing samples and learn a little more about you.

Once you have your website set up, the next step is to visit a few online forums and promote your writing services in your signature line. Please make sure you read the rules of the forum you’re joining before doing this. It’s also a good idea to participate and get to know people rather than just advertising your services (this won’t be received well).

By joining an online community you’ll start to meet people and once you get your first job, providing you do it well, you should be able to grow your writing business through recommendations.

You can also write articles and distribute them to the online article directories with a link back to your site. In the articles you can give writing tips, tips for providing a good service, what ghost writing is, etc. Make sure your expertise stands so that when someone reads the article they say “this person knows what it takes to be a good writer”. Establish yourself as an expert and people will start to see you that way, of course, you have to deliver the goods to keep your expert status.

There really is a big demand for writers, visit any online forum and you’ll see a thread or two of business owners looking for writers. You can also find writing assignments at places like and There are lots of opportunities for quality writers online.

If you’re serious about getting started and building a profitable writing business, we’ve put together a Moms Talk Biz Guide to Writing for Pay. The guide covers everything you need to know to get started making money as a writer; you’ll learn what the different types of writing are, how to find and keep clients, how to land the best jobs and how to hire writers to help you as your business grows. To learn more about writing for pay go here:

We’ll be back next week with another great work from home business idea. In the mean time if you have any questions or have a topic you’d like us to cover in the newsletter, please feel free to share your thoughts on the forum. Speak soon.

All the best,
Alice Seba & Mila Sidman

WAHM Talk Radio Notes from Kelly 

My guest this week is *Jennifer Gniedecki* of Marketing Curve and A Typical VA. Jennifer is a work at home mom with two small daughters and a husband who also works at home with her business.

Jennifer and I talked about how she has changed her business to fit her skills and interests. Jennifer shared about having the confidence to charge what your worth and building a business around what you know.

For the WAHM & her Family,

Week in Review

Have you checked your website in alternative browsers, particularly Firefox? While Internet Explorer users are still in the majority (nearly 59% of Internet users), there are a significant number of Internet users browsing with Firefox.... 31% of us. And sometimes websites that look just fine in IE have issues when viewed with other browsers.

Think about it... if your site doesn't render properly in Firefox you could be putting off 31 out of every 100 visitors.

No matter which browser you use, you can find new friends and new information in the chat rooms. Stop by this week or schedule your own online party or opportunity presentation.... there's no charge.
