With this knowledge, the traditional system of sitting in the office is no longer dominant, as many organizations are turning to the internet for a variety of things ranging from sourcing for employees, and online CV submission, to online interviews and meetings. This emerging trend has presented online writing as a critical employment opportunity for talented writers. Some advantages of online writing are listed below.

3) Adaptability

It is not difficult to begin writing online. All you're likely to be expected to do is enroll in advanced writing classes that will expose you to the technical aspects of writing, depending on the niche you choose. Unlike other online jobs such as graphic design, transcription, programming, and so on, online writing is simple to learn as long as you're familiar with the present tense. If you were a student, writing compositions was probably part of the curriculum, so you've had plenty of practice arranging your thoughts and making sense with grammatical errors. Therefore anyone with literacy can adapt and work.

With so many freelance platforms available, the policies are robust enough to keep scammers at bay. These policies have also improved payment reliability.

5) No need for papers

To become an online writer, you do not need anyone to induct you as a writer and present you with a certificate. All you need to do is set up an account and begin your writing career. In fact, no educational institution offers online writing as a course. So you don't have to be a graduate to take on this job. As a result, no certifications are required to begin writing online. A special qualification is not required for an online writer. However, in order to gain more exposure, it is necessary to begin writing training along the way. This is necessary in order for you to stand out in a crowded field.

6) Convenience of time and place

Online writing is one of the jobs that allow people to work from anywhere in the world. One can write from the convenience of their own home. Nobody cares if you do it in bed, on the field, or while traveling. This flexibility allows one to spend enough time with loved ones, which is not possible in office jobs.

Furthermore, you are working for yourself by accepting contract work from multiple clients and getting paid without being committed to any of them. You choose which jobs to do and when to do them. When you work is determined by your schedule. You have the freedom to manage your time and participate in other activities on the side. What matters is that deadlines are met.


Overall, online writing is a lifeline for many unemployed Kenyans, but it is only temporary. It is a company that pays well for hard work. As you begin your journey, keep the future in mind and prepare for it by working hard and saving for alternative investments.
