In response to a lack of understanding about Web publishing, I'm writing a new series of articles for Pro Write about monetizing your Web sites -- about the Web publishing revolution.
The first article in the series will be online shortly.
The Web publishing revolution is a deep dark secret to many (most?) writers, it seems.
I've been posting on this blog recently about online writing, how you can make money as a writer by:
* writing for the online market (HUGE, hidden);
* creating your own Web sites and monetizing them. (An alien concept for many writers. :-))
I couldn't believe the HUH??? expressions I'm getting from writers in response to my Web publishing/ online writing posts. :-)
Then I took time to mull it over. Why can't (most) writers recognize what's in front of their noses -- or on their computer screens, anyway? I think it's because many writers see one way of writing -- for others -- and don't realize that they can make MUCH more money writing for themselves by creating Web sites and monetizing them. And also, they have no idea about the amount of money that Web publishers make, ARE MAKING, essentially by writing -- by monetizing Web sites.
Hence, the new Pro Write series. I'll post a little more about the series once the first article is online.
