  1. So writing for Examiner.com can be lucrative?

    You seem very well-connected. When I tried writing as an examiner, I was not… And so I suffered from lack of traffic and soon forfeited any future effort in the column.

    Now that I’m faced with working from home again, I might revisit my options. Any suggestions?

    1. Have you thought about submitting any freelance articles to magazines? Or short stories? That’s a nice supplemental income if you’re working from home. You can try this site called duotrope.com it has search criteria you can input to find magazines that match your subject matter. It’s an amazing tool that makes life so much easier.

      As far as Examiner.com goes, at the risk of sounding lame – content is king. If you write regularly, stay on topic and just keep plugging away the traffic will eventually grow.

      In the beginning I just wrote about local events, and pretty soon record companies were contacting me with pitches. My topic was such a niche market at first that a lot of the people I wrote about all knew each other, and it kept blossoming from there.

      It took a little while, but with persistence (and word of mouth help from readers) gaining traffic works. What was your topic? If you were writing regularly and still not seeing traffic, maybe you could try writing about another subject that you like?

      Let me know what you think about duotrope. Hope that helps :)

      1. Thanks Kerri! Duotrope looks like a great resource. I will definitely check it out. :)

        As far as Examiner.com goes, I wrote about animal health and based most of my material off what I knew as a veterinary technician. I would cover local clinics, shelters, and programs, but in the veterinary care field, news was sparse in my community.

        It didn’t help that I was barely interested in what I was writing and quickly became bored trying to stick to such a specific topic everyday. I think the quality of my writing suffered because of this, too.

        Thanks for the advice. If I do return to Examiner.com, I’ll choose a better subject and, if I enjoy it, I think I’d be more likely to keep up with publishing content regularly.

        Thanks again!
