3 Writing About Running... and Getting Paid for It! ;-)


In the midst of sending out cover letters & resumes in search of a full-time job, I've decided to simultaneously pursue freelance writing and other types of part- or full-time contract work, utilizing my management, writing, & technology background.

Of course, one of the main topics I'll be writing about is running, but also am planning to write about sports nutrition & health, and other general fitness-related topics.

So, right now I'm currently in the process of writing running & fitness articles for submission to various online freelance writing sites like Triond, Helium, etc.

If any of you have written for any of these freelance writing websites, I'd love to hear about your experiences and opinions. Which ones you do like best & why?

How many of you are currently making your living through writing -- either as a freelancer, full-time blogger, journalist, screenwriter, magazine/copy editor or writer, or another type of writing/editing career?

Any advice you can give on the above topics would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.

Hey Corey:

No experience in this area, but I'd love to see what your other readers say. I'm discovering I really like writing, and would love to make money off it...

I'll be following this thread!

Hi Jim,

It's great that you've discovered you like to write, & are considering making money from such a worthy pursuit.

Have you checked out the freelance sites I mentioned?

Thanks for your comments & for following my blog!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It'd be sweet to be a full-time blog reader; that'd take less effort than being a blog writer, but both are fun.

Good luck with the free-lance efforts. I'll be reading to see how it goes.
