    I had written one article and I'm wondering, since english is not my first language, do I have enough skill to develop further, relearn grammar and write articles as part-time job.
    I'm asking you.
    Do I have it?
    How much would I get for this particular article?
    Here's my article:
    thanks

    The base of it's good. There is a decent amount of grammatical errors, but if you keep working on it, I'm sure you will be able to master it.

    sorry to say that but the article sux... What you can do though is to get a tool that scrapes content (unique article wizard does that) and rewrite or spin it using tbs.

    It's not horrible but there are a lot of grammatical errors.

    Why do you want to be an article writer? If I were you and I was looking for hourly work, I'd learn how to code. Start with something like Ubot and work your way up.

    You could also always hire somebody else to write the article for you, and charge a dollar more to your customers. lol. Driving traffic is where the value is really at, not doing the service yourself.

    Picked it up from the 2nd line.....

    Should have been
    You can again write the same sentence in a much better way. But overall, it was good but has scope for improvement. So, I would say you can sell a 500+ words article for around $1-$2.

    You missed out 'a', 'an', 'the' a lot of times. It's strange that you want to be an article writer but forget to insert the 'articles' inside the article.. :D

    I need some cash and it occurred to me this was the fastest way to make some.
    I know some PHP, but I feel it is easier to make 5$ with article than coding.

    btw, is there any grammar checking service?

    I wouldn't like to insult you because I am glad that you are willing to start writing articles. First of all, I would like to point out the positive aspects of this article:

    1) If I am not wrong, you have no experience of writing content and if this is true, then I must say, it was a good try. Everyone starts from the newbie stage and goes on to become an expert but in order to become an expert you will have to devote lots of time on your language. (+1) for your try.

    2) While I was going through the article, I could feel that somewhere down the line, you know what you to want to say but fail to express it perfectly in the form of article. In order to write a perfect article, we have to visualize, what exactly needs to be written and I think I would give a ( +1) on this point because you can visualize. Finally, as per me, you can get at the most $2 per 500 words for the article. Anything more would be a loss to the buyer.

    Before you start article writing, I'd request you to work on certain areas.

    1) Grammar: Since it's the backbone of content writing, so having perfect grammar knowledge is a must. Always remember that just thinking or willing to do something would not reap you results, because at the end of the day efforts matter. Hire an English teacher who can help you out.

    2) Sentence Structure: As we already know that you are just a beginner, so I won't compare you with some of the best writers on this forum. Still, I have to say this, your sentence structure sucks :D. However, I believe if you put in some efforts whole-heatedly, then you can improve.

    Hey, don't bother what people say. Don't listen to those people who say that you are not fit to write articles. Ignore the ignorant. Practice. Practice. Practice.
    Remember bro, if you want to get something then you have to be ready to give something. It's a give and take procedure. I would love to see you write flawless articles. Knock me for any sort help. All the best.

    It's not too bad. That is one hell of a lot better than a scraped and autospun article so yeah, you could make some money off of that quality, especially if you can sentence spin and keep the quality the same.

    If writing is what you want to do, then keep at it! :)

    Not too bad, but with some practice you can make it far better.

    You can keep on improving by writing more and more articles. Do check your grammar and sentence structure mistakes and let the content flow with a co-relation of paras.
    Good luck !!!

    Well as the old proverb says practice makes the men perfect. Keep on writing and you may be improving as the day passes.

    There are some grammatical errors, and you could have phrased certain sentences, much better, but all in all it wasnt a bad effort.
