My Story

I'm Helen a Christian, blogger and author I started writing 6 years ago online creating blogs with Google and Wordpress and writing on Ezine, Hubpages and Squidoo.

It was after I started my Wordpress blog that I discovered where my heart lay, it was in writing.

My background is a secretarial one.  Which comes in really handy when you're writing an article and transferring to a blog post.

At the moment I'm an example of how writing can change your life and how positive and therapeutic it can be.

I understand how hard it can be to sit down and write something, but that fear is gone once you get started and put pen to paper.

Three Posts to Get You Started

1. Can I Make Money Blogging (my most viewed post)

Make Money Blogging, 7 Steps to Creating Your Own Blog on a Shoestring Budget.

2. Start Your Life as a Writer with this Simple Guide
I started writing in 2011, writing on Ezine and Hubpages. I want to show you how writing can make you an income and change the way you look at writing on the internet.
The internet is a hive of information some good some bad. You can and join and be a part of the huge wave of writer's that populate the internet currently. If you can put a sentence together and want to make some extra money article writing is a great way to do it.

If you've got idea's to share with people it not only benefit's you but your reader's also.
The above statement is my thought on writing online and creating eBooks. Financially there is no cost involved especially if you're working during the day. There is no publisher or printer needed, any tool's you require to create and edit your eBook can be found online.

I usually publish two blog posts a week, and I'm always open to new suggestions.  If you have any questions or  blog post ideas,  just get in touch
