Web gems: Online writing resources

There are a ton of websites with free information for making money writing online. These are some of my favorites:

No Job for Mom

I love NJFM for its candor and variety. Felicia, an experienced web writer, offers insights into her writing journey and tips for staying on track intertwined with her experiences on writing online for pay. No Job for Mom also has a small directory of links to revenue share and upfront pay sites. While the link database is a bit outdated, there are a lot of really great job leads.

Write Jobs

Write Jobs is a fantastic resource for web content writers who are looking for a feed of writing job leads. This blog publishes sets of leads twice a day and offers reviews of several online writing sites. Because this site is so dynamic, by best suggestion on how to get the most out of Write Jobs is to set a subscription either through RSS or your follow list through Blogger.

Real Ways to Earn Money Online

Real Ways to Earn Money Online is a fairly comprehensive resource for anyone looking to make money online in various ways, from writing content to performing tasks to bidding on freelance work. The writing site directory on this website is pretty up-to-date and one of the most complete resources I've come across for web writers. The reviews on content sites and job opportunities are also fairly candid and insightful.
