Here we are at the start of 2008, and looking around the online world, a lot has changed for writers since the start of 2007.
The most important change is that the move to the online world has accelerated. The media world is much more Web-based: magazines and newspapers are online with a vengeance, and they’re putting more resources into their online presences. Advertising is moving online, so where the advertisers go, the media follows.
New media networks are growing and are hiring more writers.
So where do you fit into all this? I hope you’ve created your writers’ Web site and blog, and that you’re building your presence online: this is the only secret to writing success in 2008 and beyond.
The biggest benefit for writers of an online presence is that your target markets (the people to whom you want to sell your work) are already looking for you online. This means that they come to you – you don’t have to go hunting for writing gigs.
