Don’t feel pressured to churn out content daily. Start a writing habit you can sustain: think long-term
Writing online is the new career leverage. It’s a great way to share your knowledge and expertise. You don’t need permission to get started. There are no gatekeepers. Writing online has changed my life and career.
I landed a book deal without pitching an agency. I’ve published content on Inc.com and Entrepreneur.com as a contributing author. Businessinsider.com, getpocket.com and many more popular sites have syndicated my work. They found my writing on Medium. I’ve travelled to speak at a top online travel business office in Spain.
The exposure has been incredible.
Writing advantage isn’t unique to me. Many people are leveraging the internet to share what they know. Your words can spark conversations, inspire change, and of course drive revenue. Successful online writing online is an art. With each word, you’re shaping your digital leverage.
In a few minutes I will tell you the most important successful online writing habits. You don’t even have to be an expert to share what you know.
This post isn’t just another guide — it’s a personal mission to help you become the best online writer you can be.
The habits we’ll explore are tried and tested in the real digital world. We’ll draw from my experiences, as well as those of successful writers, to bring you practical wisdom you can apply immediately.
Whether you dream of becoming a full-time writer, a part-time sensation, or just want to improve your online presence, these writing rules are your secret weapon.
Of course, there are no universal writing rules. But common principles can help you thrive. In the words of the prolific author Ernest Hemingway, “There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”
Online writing is different from traditional publishing. The medium is different, the audience is different, and the purpose is often different too.
