How do I find a writing job online?

Recommended Posts

wa 'alaykum assalam,

You will have to be a little bit creative I think to make money from writing, because even mainstream newspapers publish articles that are submitted to them, they give some exposure to the author and they get a free article.

You should probably write about something that you enjoy - or better still from a financial standpoint, something that you think that a lot of people want to read about. Once you have a blog or a website that has a lot of traffic, you can make some money from advertising, or by doing affiliate marketing for a shop (you get a cut of the business that you send their way via their site).

I read recently that in the Uk, the sales of books, particularly children's books has been increasing over the last few years. The children's book market is a massive market with a lot of potential, if you can find a way to tap into that it could be quite lucrative. For example, I have an interest in the history of the monarchy in Britain, and was thinking of writing some educational children's books to teach history. Etc (heck that Harry Potter woman made millions from her nonsense kids' books)

Good luck in sha' Allah

* Also remember that as a French speaker, the French world is always years behind the English world, and whilst not everything that is popular among anglophones will necessarily be popular with francophones, you can still get some good ideas of future trends.

    • Because your god(self/mind) keeps reminding you of its limits. It keeps you in search of "there is no god, but The God".  
    • As far as I know, in that time Arabs didnt have books similar to the ones we have nowadays. There were not even enough papers so sometimes they wrote on animals' skin and sometimes just used their memory. So kitab can mean something written.
    • Is it true that isis soldiers even killed babies?
    • Remove "knowledge" & "power" from the scene.
    • If you mean about Moses speaking to God (which I probably think this was the story, though never knew the bush was not consumed), then it was a miracle. A miracle is : An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. That is what we call "Tawaqqu' al-mustaqbal" predicting the future, and it is haram/Forbidden to do, and the nice thing is they mostly don't work, unless it was a "wild" guess, as some call it. Though the Prophet (sawa) once predicted future events more than 1 time, and all of them came true, you interested? Again, if the "angels"(which I think you mean) were to appear they wouldn't appear from their own will, God wants them to appear. Again, God is: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. So God can basically break the laws, which he himself created, when he wants, as they don't apply to him.   Though angels in Islam aren't the winged angels, they are some sort of "Spirits" of  unknown nature. The word "Mala'ika" means the "heavenly" ones, or the ones who always obey. So again not the winges creatures like the Christian/Jewish thoughts. Though they could possibly lift themselves through the means/ways of aerodynamics. Only God knows.   This one happened, I think it was by Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), he basically puts the amputated part, on the other, and joins them together.  I have seen the name "Allah" once through a cloud, not sure if it is going to help though. Well, it is pretty hard to do so.
