Tips for Kim's Creative Writing Group


This post is especially for Kim's Creative Writing Group. Thanks for having me share today (August 13, 2020). 

I mentioned a variety of things in my conversation. I want to share some links you may find helpful for trying to make money from your writing, plus a few other opportunities. 

If you have a question, feel free to message me at info@RosalieGarde.com or through Facebook Messenger. 


Non-paying

Actually, I started out publishing free articles to promote my life coach business on Ezine Articles https://ezinearticles.com/ 


Web Content/Online Magazines

1.   I write as Joy R. Calderwood on this site and have sold over 500 articles. Constant-Content  https://www.constant-content.com/freelance-writing-jobs.htm

My personal bio page on Constant-Content. https://www.constant-content.com/Author/34906-Joy_R_Calderwood-details-0.htm


Sites that Pay (various work from home jobs)

1.   https://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com/5-sites-that-pay-you-over-100-to-write/

2.   On the below link I have submitted to the greeting card companies. I didn't get any accepted. Rappers, poetry writers the greeting card submissions might be for you!

3.   I haven't used this but you can offer to write for $5 or more https://sellers.fiverr.com/en/

4.    I haven't used this before, but looks interesting. See *notes below. Problogger Jobs

* Some job offers require you work in the US. Remote means work from home usually. If you're from Canada, check if they hire Canadians and how they make payment.  Avoid sites that make you buy a membership. Be careful of sites that ask you to do a practice test. For Constant-Content, I did have to submit 3 articles that passed editing before I could sell. That was okay with me. 

Blog 

with blogger.com or wordpress.com, market your books on your blog.

Life Coach Training 

1.   I trained through Life Purpose Coaching Centres. Here is a Facebook Page. I didn't seem to get to the website. https://www.facebook.com/LifePurposeCoachingCentersIntl/

I've asked friends to let me know where they trained. I'll add it if I find out. 

2.   A friend trained here: Coach U 

3.   Another friend of mine trained here:  Life Purpose Institute 

4.   Check out The ChristianCoachingCentre

I will add to this page as I think of what else may be of help.

5.    Another friend studied with New Life Christian Coaching and did a refresher with Transformation Academy.
