I know that there are many writers on here who write quality content for clients and have experience in this regard.
I am a Nigerian and a few minutes back, I got talking with a fellow Nigerian. I told her that I have a friend( another Nigerian) who could help her with her article writing needs. The next thing she would ask is that; does the guy have any online presence? I told her the person I am referring to her wrote some of the articles used by Abayomi Aje who sold websites for profit but she refused to accept my words based on the fact that he probably wouldn't be a good writer because he has no online presence.
She later said that there is another Nigerian who earn more $5000 per month from article writing !!! She claimed that the guy write articles for $50/article. I went to the said BIG money earner's blog and all I could see is just words stating that the he makes that kind of money BUT no screenshot to back up that claim.
Now, I ask, do people single handedly make $5000 per month from article writing and do you easily get client who will pay $50/ article?
While this lady does not want to believe that it was all made up to deceive people, I strongly believe that he does not make that much, except I missing something.
Another question is, not having a blog or website make one an incompetent writer?
