The reason being that in wordpress, there are so many options which one can use. Further, wordpress is very user friendly and you can get any help instantly through online forums. On the other hand blogger platform is having limited options. There are many other blogging platforms also but I have mentioned here the two most commonly used platform. If you really want to become a successful blogger I will also suggest you to invest some money by purchasing a good theme for your blog as well as paid hosting from hosting providers such as godaddy. This will give your blog a professional look and better experience to the visitors.

Next activity through which you can earn money online is Content Writing. If you are finding it tough to start your own blog then another option which you can chose is content writing. For those who are not aware I would like to tell them that a content writer or web content writer is a person who specializes in providing relevant content for websites. There are hundreds of websites on various specialized areas. As a content writer first you have to choose your specific area on which you want to write. There are various popular websites which require publishing articles on various topics every day. Such websites require content writers who can write articles for them. As a content writer you can provide your services to them. A content writer can easily work from his or home. He or she can work anytime as per the convenience.
How to become a content writer?
To become a professional content writer and to earn money online from this profession you need very basic infrastructure such as a computer and an internet connection. However the more important thing is that you should have a flair for writing so that your articles can attract visitors. Over a period you need to develop your skills of writing original and SEO friendly article. The better you will write the more you will earn.
How much a content writer can earn?
A content writer can earn a very decent income which can vary from Rs. 10000 per month to lacs of rupees per month. Even a starter with basic writing skills can easily earn more than Rs. 10000 per month by working 3-4 hours in a day. If one can devote more time and can write better, the income will also go up with the time. However my personal view is that if you want to become a good content writer rather than focus on earnings your objective should be to write well. Once you develop good writing skills you will have lot of work. You can register with websites such as freelancer.com and many other websites to start working as a content writer.
Skills required for a Content Writer
One should develop his or her own writing style. Do not try to copy others. Try to provide exhaustive and complete information in your articles.
What I have learnt from my experience that to become successful in content writing one need to provide original contents. I too have hired many content writers but many of them started falling in the trap of earning easy money. They start to copy articles from here and there and modify them. Such approach is not correct. This may work for short term. However if you want to become a good content writer never copy anything. You may refer and research but write always in your own words. Provide only original contents to the person with whom you are working. Otherwise it will breach the trust and will also hamper the quality of blog or website for which you are providing the contents.
What is Online Tuition?
Online Tuition is another avenue through which you can earn money online. Few years back nobody could have even imagined that tuition can be provided through online mode. But thanks to the advent of new technologies that now Online Tuitions have become a very popular and big business. This has helped many students, housewives, unemployed people and to those who want to work part-time and earn money online from their home. You may not be aware but let me tell you that thousands of teachers are now-a-days providing online tuitions to lacs of students.
