If you are good in writing and enjoy it, then this is for you. Good English knowledge and grammar can make you a professional writer in the web world.

You can apply jobs as an article writer and start on. The plus point is getting a MasterCard for your payment.
Your next level should be submitting articles to famous and well known article directories. Write These articles on different topics and they should be well formed. These are to get you familiar in the web. You can call it article marketing. Some of them will be free submission and some of the sites will pay you. Article directory like ezine or eHow will be best to submit your articles. This thing will build up your reputation as an article writer.
It is best if you can manage a blog in this time. People will come and might want to get know about you and your thoughts. Again you can practice your writing in the blog and earn some extra cash from advertising revenue.
