Article writing is the easiest way to start making money online. If you can write, you can start making some money asap. The better you are; the more the volume of jobs that will come your way.
So many crappy writers have saturated the article writing niche these days but the good news is most of them are terrible writers only few of them have a good command of the English Language, so if you have a good command of English, you should be able to carve a niche for yourself.
Writing The Articles
Using Search Engines
Usually I simple use search engines like Google to check out the keywords.
For example if the article is about "dog training", that's the main keyword.
I type dog training into Google and check out a couple of the results. I then jot points on dog training from different article sources and write an article in my own words using the
Ezine articles is an article directory with lots of articles in a vast variety of niches [fields]. You can go to ezinearticles.com, type in the keyword of interest and you will have different article options, you can then list the major points and write in your own words.
Avoid Plagiarism like a plague. Plagiarism is simply copying other people's work. You must learn to avoid that otherwise your writing career will be frustrating and shortlived.

Another good place to start writing jobs online is now http://forums.digitalpoint.com and register there.
You won't be able to post anything in the Buy Sell And Trade section for the first 10 days of registering and you must also have a minimum number of posts, so you have to participate in the forums first.
But you can send pm to prospective clients if they ask for it. Never send an unrequested pm, you may be banned for spamming.
My personal experience has taught me that what works for some one may not work for others, so you may try other places for freelance writing jobs
