Many content share sites put topic restrictions on their contributors. Some sites require a contributor to write about their local area, and only about a certain niche, like places for breakfast. While this can work in the writer’s favor, by making them write the piece no matter what, it can also limit the writer’s creativity and become boring. The budding contributor moves on.
Writer’s who want to spread their wings and write from inspiration or experience, or have a question to ask or answer to share, will often spend time building a blog when they’d rather be writing. But their purpose for the blog is to establish themselves in the digital world, to build a portfolio and a following. The reasons for building your own blog are endless when growing a career.
Is Your Own Blog Necessary?
As a writer, you want something that allows you the freedom to follow your creativity, be it in a niche market or a sprinkling of what ever you’re feeling at the moment. Something that doesn’t put a looming deadline over your head in order to keep your gig. And, something that helps grow your audience.
But you don’t want to deal with hosting, WordPress, widgets and URLs. You just want to write.
While owning your own piece of virtual real estate is an important piece of a writer’s online presence, it doesn’t have to be a blog. What if you don’t want to post every day? How will you keep your audience engaged? How will you drive traffic to your blog posts?
Give Wizzley A Try
I’ve found Wizzley to be a unique revenue share site for a couple of reasons.
- The Article Dashboard. The layout works to keep writers focused, turning out interesting content.
- The Community. If you become active on the site, there are others there who will support you by sharing your work and help drive traffic to your pages.
- Growing an Audience. As your connections on the site grow, so will the number of shares your content receives. More people will see your work!
- Write What You Want! Share a review of your favorite breakfast joint or the fabulous breakfast brunch you enjoyed while on vacation in Spain. There are no restrictions to what a contributor can cover. (As far as decency is concerned, I’m sure. Please read their rules!)
Be a part of my group by joining through this link. Write your first article and spend some time following other contributors. Like, share, tweet and stumble their work. Leave a comment. You’ll enjoy the articles and learn how to write better ones too. You’ll be sharing interesting content that isn’t yours (a top 5 rule in social media!) to your audience. You’ll drive traffic and begin to see earnings from this new income trickle. Keep at it and this new stream has the potential to grow into a river!
Wizzley is a Revenue Share Site.
This means as a contributor, you earn a portion of the revenue generated by your work.
YES! This takes time. This takes commitment. This takes work. You must write articles. You must share your work. But, this is what it takes to build the career – write, promote, write, promote. Commit to writing two articles a month for a year. Once you get used to their dashboard, which won’t take long, you’ll see how easy this task will be. Hopefully, it will inspire you to write more than two articles a month. Remember: The more you write, the more traffic you drive to your pages earning you a bigger piece of the pie.
