Your 12-Step Roadmap To Becoming A Well-Paid, Working Web Writer: Module 8


How To Master Productivity and Move Forward

Floundering Around Versus Actually Moving Forward
(Hint: You’ll Never Be Perfect)

Many extremely talented web writers never get their careers off the ground for one simple reason: they over-think every step.

Maybe you can relate. Maybe you worry you’re not ready, or that your copy just isn’t good enough, or that you picked the wrong niche.

Regardless, this kind of worry creates a huge roadblock.

Fortunately, there’s a way to move past that problem. It starts with acknowledging that no web writer is perfect. In fact, no copy is perfect. Even the highest-paid web writers still make mistakes or write copy that can be tweaked to boost effectiveness. Many of them rely on peer reviews and editors for suggestions that improve their work.

However, all of them — all of the most successful web writers, that is — continually practice and study their craft. They acknowledge success is less about having inborn writing talent and more about understanding the industry.

If you’re worried about your writing skills, we recommend this article from Mindy Tyson McHorse: Not A Born Writer? That’s Okay. It’ll tell you what you need to know versus what you shouldn’t worry about as a web writer. After that, read her post titled You Don’t Need Talent As Much As You Need This. It talks about why getting noticed as a web writer is more important than any other thing — including writing ability!

  • Hi Dale,

    Those are anchor tags. They should bounce you down to the heading within the article rather than take you to another page. It’s meant to make it faster for you to find the stuff that interests you most. Sorry for any confusion.


  • Hi Heather,

    The anchor tags don’t go to anything in particular. It looks like this article has been truncated.

    • Hi Courtney,
      I tested the anchor links and they worked for me. If the article looks truncated, it may be that you are not logged in.
