make money as a writer even if you suck at writing

When I tell people that I write for a living, that I make money writing content online, some think that I’m a very good writer. They think I write some of the best content on the internet. On the contrary, that is not the case.

If you go through my blog, through my content, you’ll see that I’m not the best writer in the world. You’ll see that I don’t use the best grammar, I don’t use the best vocab. Sometimes, I don’t even use the right words to say what I want to say.

But what I do know is that all I have to do is tell my story, in whatever way I can.

As long as I could tell my story or stories in whatever way I can, people will identify with my story, and I’ll be able to connect with them, build an audience and start making money as a writer.

So, even if you suck at writing, here’s what you must do to make money online as a writer.

You don’t have to be the best writer in the world

Some people think for you to make money as a writer, your writing have to be perfect. You have to have a very good vocabulary, you have to be a wordsmith, you have to eat words for breakfast.

The truth is, you don’t have to be. You just need to find a way to tell your story in whatever way you can.

As long as people understand you and the message you’re trying to pass, you’re gold.

Write about what you know – your story – be you

If you go through this blog, you’ll understand what I mean when I tell you to write about what you know.

I’m not the best writer in the world, but when you go through this blog, you’ll understand that I only write about what I know. I try to tell my story through my articles.

I don’t tell you things I know nothing about. I relate to you my experiences and what I’ve learned from them.

That way it’s easier for me to write, and pass my message. I’m here to tell my story in whatever way I can.

I’m not writing about astronomy, or anything like that, because I don’t know about that. That’s not my field.

What I do have to tell you is how to write for a living. I’ve been doing it for a few years, and I know about it so much, that I now tell people about it.

Writing about this comes easy to me because it’s what I’ve done, it’s my personal experience. I don’t have to study anything, or do hundreds of research before I can write.

I can just wake up one morning, think about something important about “writing online” I feel you should know, and then write about it.

That’s it. Only write about what you know, your personal experiences, tell you story.

Do that, and you’ll never have any issue being a writer, and actually making money from it.

You don’t need to be a grammarian – the simpler the words you use the better

Some people think you need to use big words as a writer. The contrary however is the case. You must use simple words, as simple as possible, so anyone can understand what you write.

The internet is not full of intellectuals. It’s full of ordinary people like me and you with average education.

Don’t try to look or seem impressive by using big words to convey your thoughts. Try as much as possible, to use simple words. Words that are easy to understand.

This will make it easy for you to attract all types of people to your content or your message.

Have a core message you want to pass to people

If you want to make money as a writer, it’s very important that you have a core message, and let people know what they stand to gain by heeding what you say or listening to you.

For instance, I’m telling people that they can write for a living. That’s my core message. I talk about a lot of things, but it all culminates in “writing for a living”.

The action is writing, the benefit is earning a living from it. Making money online. That’s what they stand to gain by writing online just like I do.

My main message is simple and clear. So, that’s what you must strive for. So, ask yourself what is it you have learned personally that you have applied in your life, that has benefitted you greatly that you can share with others that will give them the same benefit?

The answer to that should be what you write about. It is your core message.

Be Consistent

Finally, you want to be consistent with your writing. It’s not one blog post today, then another next month.

If possible, you want to write every day. You want your message consistently in front of your audience.

When you’re consistent, everything happens fast. You grow faster, you make money earlier than someone who’s not consistent.

Every of the platforms online like Google, Facebook, X(Twitter), Instagram, Tik-Tok or favors creators that posts consistently.

The more frequently you post, the more serious they know you are, the easier it is for their algorithms to identify the type of content you’re creating, and who they should show your content to or your target audience.

So, if you want to make money as a writer, you must know that you don’t have to be the best writer in the world or even a very good writer for that matter.

You just have to write about what you what you know, have a core message for your audience, and be consistent.
