I am a writer and an examiner for examiner.com specializing in grandparenting in Iowa, though my column is Des Moines. Des Moines is the featured city for Iowa and is our state capital. I have only been there since April of 2009 but have managed to climb to the number two spot for top examiner writers.
Remarks have been made by other markets of examiner.com and the low payscale but what many writers don't realize is that to build an online presence you have to start somewhere and writing is not always about the money to be earned but about finding your voice, your audience and a platform to launch a writing career. We all have to start somewhere and if you find a niche that fills the void and your muse soars than money should not be your main reason to write.
I have very strong opinions concerning big governement, grandparents rights, the economy and life in general and I am not afraid to say what I feel. I found a great place to write at http://bit.ly/1BWGI and have a blog at http://dragonladyspeaksout.blogspot.com/ where I just let her rip on subjects that have come up in my life, political circle, neighborhood, ect. Check it out and leave a comment or two, I love recognition that someone has read my stuff. If you go to http://bit.ly/1BWGI for grandparenting at examiner and subscribe for FREE. My columns are FREE, no cost, no signups, no passwords...just get ready for a wild ride of what is on the menu. Speaking of menu...check out my cookbook 'The Budget Gourmet' at www.createspace.com/3364981 or find it on Amazon under the title and my name, Denise Murphy.
