Blogging is just the same as attending a language class back in high school as you are giving a task of writing 500 to 1000 words composition. Back in those days I could hardly produce 500 words of composition no matter how sufficient time was given. Now I can easily write 1000 words of blog post in couple of hours if my mind is clear and focus. Unfortunately there is always something there to distract us even if we are sitting comfortable blogging at home.
One of the most common distractions is having too much things in our mind while blogging. In other words, sometimes we just can’t focus while blogging. Most bloggers tend to fall for this after blogging for years. When we have too many things to consider and too many ideas to blog about, we kind of lost our way when blogging. A simple sentences can be written in several different ways but still able to maintain the same meaning. Bloggers will tend to consider the best way to construct the sentence in such a way so that it favors either readers or search engine. This is one of the examples of distraction. And if the blogger try to do research on the best keywords to fit into the sentences, it can take hours to write a simple short blog post. When it takes longer than usual to produce a blog post, it increases the chances for other distractions to jump in.
The best way to overcome this problem is to write your blog post fast. Write your first draft of your blog post by only focusing on the ideas or content. Work on the keywords, grammar, sentence structure and research later on when you go through your first draft. Try to complete the blog post within an hour. Of cause this method is for short blog post with less than 1000 words.

Depending on your writing skills and popularity, you can set the price of your service as high as you want as long as there are people willing to pay for it. It might take some time to promote your writing service but it shouldn’t be a problem if you provide good services to your customers. If you are just starting to make money online by providing writing services, try not to accept too many tasks at once. It is better to focus on maintaining the quality of your writing and services instead of trying hard to make as much money as you can. The goal is to build a good writing service reputation so that you can increase the price of your writing services in future. It is obviously better to minimize the writing work and maximize the earning potential. In order to achieve this you need to produce good quality writing work, provide good services and maintain a good reputation online.

The idea is good but they will have to register on several similar websites to reach out wider range of customers.

The site pays $2 per article for a minimum of 300 words and $6.5 for a minimum of 1000 words. Honestly, I can get a lot higher price for my writing service and I already give a very good example site above. The site did offers to pay an extra 5~10% for articles that are urgently needed within 24 hours, but I still don’t feel excited about it. Payments are done every Tuesday and Friday via PayPal or Payoneer.
You may give it a try and submit one or two of your writing work just to see how things go. But be sure to take a look at the FAQ as there are some rules that you are require to take note. The site will close your account without paying for the work you’ve done if you are not a native English speaker. There is a risk if you are an international writer not from US, Canada, England or South Africa.
