    Hey guys,

    I worked as a full-time content writer for the past few months. Owing to personal reasons, I had to quit my job, and move-in with my grandparents.

    Now, I'm living in a remote farm area, and am running out of my savings at a breakneck speed. Before I find myself in dire straits, I'd like to land an online writing gig of sorts, to keep my expenses running.

    Could you guys recommend me ways to monetize my writing skills? Preferably something with a short pay-out time.

    Thanks in advance!

    Warmest,
    Partap

    Get jr VIP membership and post a sales thread.

    Don't try marketing your services here.

    Fiver, upwork and a bunch of other places exist for you to sell your services, as well.

    You can opt for following techniques:
    1. Start getting "Content Writing" projects from Freelancing websites like Upwork, PeoplePerHour, Fiverr, Freelancer etc.
    2. Start your own blog on Blogger, Wordpress or Weebly like blogging platforms. Later use Google Adsense to get some paid ads displayed on your blog.
