Do you write for print or strictly online?

Many freelancers make a serious living writing for the Internet. In fact, that is the main source that I write for. There is never a shortage of people who need work done on the Internet. With over a gazillion sites online- and growing- there will always be work online. I love the variety of working online. I can write articles one day, a sales page the next and then move on to press releases. It never gets boring- I always say I write about everything from acne to aerobics and that is certainly true.

I must admit, however, that I do have an itch to see my name in real live print. I've recently written an article to be submitted to a trade magazine. Now, granted, that baby was ghostwritten, so my name is nowhere to be found, but if it gets published, then I will have a bit more encouragement to shoot for another.

So, how about you? Do you write for the Internet or do you write for print? Both, maybe? Tell me about it- we all love encouragement!

Speak soon,
Teresa

Some writers choose to submit to both print and online markets.

I used to publish more articles in print magazines but in recent years have found I'm more Net-based. The convenience is so attractive.

But, if a writer is willing to wait to hear on acceptance and wait again for payment, print markets can be quite lucrative and it is a great feeling seeing your article featured in a magazine.
