My name is Simon, and I'm a big cat fan (hence my profile avatar) – who lives in the South Yorkshire area of England. I am predominantly a feature article writer, and was first published on an unpaid basis in a leading U.K computer fanzine at the age of 14, before starting to earn reasonable money from paid assignments in my late teens.
Over approximately the past 15 years, I have witnessed the massive rise of the internet and its associated impact on the way that most people obtain information. The halcyon days of print media seem to be gone forever, with the online world now clearly the dominant resource for the vast majority of British (and also overseas, I rightly assume) people seeking further knowledge on most subjects. Likewise, the way in which an individual as a writer must manage their working life is a fair bit different to what it was when I began submitting to mainstream magazines in the late nineties as well – but whilst there are certainly negative aspects to the digital revolution, overall it is far more convenient most of the time.
My goal as a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate is to begin utilising my quite considerable writing skills in a newer capacity, by infusing high quality article material with accurately targeted keywords. In doing so, I aim to subsequently earn revenue via this specialist niche – as an ongoing creator of high quality website articles, I will hopefully start creating a stream of real income through the affiliate commissions that are gained because of them.
