After reading so many posts that Article writing is the quickest way to start making money, and having lost my business in the last year due to economic downturns, and a recent struggle with an "offline cash cow" start up..., I am thinking of also getting into freelance article writing to both generate some extra cash, and also for the purpose of showing my teenage daughter how she can make money as well.
In an effort to "just take action" I wrote the sample article earlier today, in about an hour. Please offer your critiques of said article, and tell me is this what they mean?
Are these the types of articles people pay for?
This one (first attempt) is based on the following keywords
1: Career in online article writing
2: Online article writing
3: Article writing.

“Pursuing a career in Online Article Writing”
Thousands of people all over the planet, young and old are seeing new hope by turning to a career in online article writing.
With the Internet booming, and with so much room for growth, online article writing can be a very lucrative career choice.
If you have been to Elance lately, or any of the freelance job sites on the Internet, you can hardly avoid noticing that there is a huge, and growing demand for good article writers.
There are literally millions of web sites out there being promoted that can only stay competitive by constantly adding new content.
Adding new articles to a website regularly is important because search engines determine a website’s value largely by the amount of relevant content on their site.
In short, this means that “There are literally thousands of website owners out there paying out cold hard cash every day to have ordinary people like you and I write hundreds of 3-500 word articles for their sites! There is a huge demand!
Another Benefit of choosing article writing as a career is this:
It doesn’t take a ton of experience, in fact; the writer of this very article you are reading didn’t graduate from high school. It’s true.
Here’s another interesting fact:
Probably 50% of the article writing community, your competitors… don’t even speak fluent English, and are from countries abroad, even though the demand is primarily for “English written” articles.
Even if you are not the best, or do not yet have a wide reputation… , you can start a career in online article writing, as long as you can write relevant content that’s fairly interesting, and that an English reader can understand.
It’s amazing to think that some people actually make $100. per day regularly whose articles , in many cases (not all), don’t even contain correct grammar.
The reason these people are able to make a living is simply because the demand for articles is so huge that there simply aren’t enough writers to fill the gap.
Chances are that you can place an ad for your writing services on the internet, and land a professional article writing assignment more quickly, and easily than you can land a regular brick and mortar job in the newspaper. Many people start out to do this, and then find that they never have to report to a regular day job ever again.
If you want to try your hand at online article marketing, all you have to do is START NOW.
All it requires to succeed is a willingness to work hard, and a commitment to strive for constant improvement.
There are many places to start learning about a career in online article writing, such as the warrior forum, where you can learn and read about the success of others like yourself who started from right where you are right now, and have done so with great success.
So what are you waiting for? Why not get started today?
It only takes a moment to decide to start right now and you could be well on your way to a lucrative career in online article writing industry!
