While it’s too late to sell Christmas articles to magazines, some websites and blogs may still be interested in your seasonal ideas. As you drink a frothy hot chocolate, feel the warmth of the crackling fireplace, and gaze at candles and twinkle lights, grab a small notebook because it’s the perfect time of year to create a list of seasonal ideas to pitch to magazines, blogs, websites, and book publishers – all year long!
As life brings me more trials, I’ll “digest” them and turn them into spiritual articles and essays for others just trying to get through the day on this difficult path we call life.
I encourage you to try your hand at writing for God. Examine your life. Read the Bible–or whatever religious guide to which you aspire. Pray about it. I’m sure He will assist you.
When it comes to popular human interest topics, pets will always rank high on the list. Their eccentricities, shenanigans, aggravating and heartwarming ways make for many great stories. So, why not write them up, share them with others, and make some money at the same time?
After writing for secular publications, I was looking for a new market to tap into. I knew that having a wide net of markets to write for would increase my chance of publication, and add to my income.

I love the outdoors and writing about the outdoors. I did so for several years for The Milwaukee Journal, now the Journal Sentinel. How can I find paying markets for these types of topics on your website?

Each year about this time, a new set of graduates with fresh, new academic degrees embarks on post-academic life. Especially among those who majored in a humanities field, or who earned advanced degrees in creative writing or literature, the road to graduation was likely paved with plenty of course papers and presentations.
