I first decided to write articles for magazines targeting disabled readers and their families when reading about the high unemployment rate among people with major disabilities, even highly educated ones. I discovered that there was at least one magazine, Careers and the DisABLED, targeting these disabled readers by publishing articles on job-hunting and inspirational success stories. Later, I became frustrated in trying to sell travel articles in the highly competitive newspaper and travel magazine market.

This magazine targets mobility-impaired readers.

Instead of focusing on “just” writing humor, the wise freelancer should find ways to integrate material capable of inducing involuntary grins into articles for niches that aren’t strictly focused on being funny…
