Cupid flew around the world
To find the perfect friend,
For Goopy, who was shy and kind —
And loyal to the end!
(“The Goopy Ghost at Valentine's Day”)
Rather than post covers on social media, writers should learn markup language for websites and blogs to attract attention to their work and to get paid to write as freelance web writers.
Book Writer Incomes: Reading has moved online. Unless book writers also move online, their gross annual average incomes likely will remain $500 for self-published books and $5,000 for traditional books. Those who write about books tend to get ignored in this day in which technology rules. Few people are interested in books. For this same reason, the posting of book covers on social media is not compelling. Covers are readily identified by those who are skittish of writers' promotions. Unless writers use stealth in the mention or depiction of books, many people will flee them. With the use of technology, writers can attract potential readers to books. And, to extend their practice to web writing, writers should acquire a knowledge of markup language (HTML). Basic tech skills are all a writer needs to learn the markup language used to produce Web content for websites and blogs. It generally is not necessary for a Web writer to provide the digital layout and graphic design. Website Designers often work in specialized teams consisting of skilled Web writers, layout designers and code programmers.
There is a huge market for skilled writers of commercial, industrial and professional web content. Few professionals, organizations, agencies or small companies produce content for their own websites, which presents an ongoing demand for freelance Web writers. Large companies and government offices often provide career positions for the writers of content for their websites and blogs. For those book writers who are unwilling to upgrade their skills, the Web lists lower and middle income countries in which to seek temporary or permanent refuge. Writers also can research the important lifestyle considerations and immigration policies of these places online. While book writers attempt to stretch funds, interesting outside ideas might surface with which to get paid to write. Freelance Web Writers can add the needed markup language to a book writer's creative foundation of human language. However, to develop web pages for a living, to create a website, or to gain greater control over comments on websites, it is critical to have an understanding of HTML — the predominant markup language of the web.
