Begin Earning Money Writing for Helium

Do you enjoy writing?  Many moms do.

Perhaps you kept a diary when you were younger, or maintain a daily journal now.

When I was a tween I always enjoyed writing.  That was back in the 1960s when the Beatles were the popular musical sensation, and snail mail was the only way to send a letter.  I had apenpal and wrote to a gal my age in England.  We exchanged letters about once a week, and I always looked forward to receiving mail from “across the pond.”

You don’t have to commit yourself to being a mommy blogger to begin earning a little extra cash for your family household expenses.

Helium, the world’s largest community for writers, has just launched a starter kit specifically for moms. The kit, which can be found at, is designed to make it as easy as possible for moms to get started on Helium and begin earning money for their writing.

Moms willing to write on topics in demand by Helium’s 500 magazine, Internet and newspaper publishing partners should dive into Helium’s Freelance Marketplace and check the new titles posted each day. Articles range from short lifestyle pieces to longer pieces that require research. Earnings average $70 per article, with ranges from $35 to $200. Additionally, Helium runs approximately 20 writing contests each week, as well as select journalism award challenges. Helium writers also retain copyright to all of their articles.

Start writing about your hobbies or interests, be it beauty, cooking, crafting, gardening, parenting tips, pets, social networking, shopping, or whatever floats your boat.

Here’s some tips to get you started writing on Helium.  What’s Helium?

At Helium, we believe that everyone can contribute what they know to share with millions of readers around the globe. … At Helium, great writing rises to the top. And great writing reaps great rewards.

Step 1: Establish your presence on Helium. Register and set up your About Me page. Present yourself professionally so you increase your chances for success.

Step 2: Get your first writing star with 4 sample articles. The writing star is your ticket to better pay for non-exclusive articles and your “premier writer” badge, for access to the highest-paying Marketplace gigs. Use the “write” button on the main menu to find titles that match your interests. Choose titles with 2-4 articles (not Creative Writing pieces) for your first 4 sample articles . This ensures your articles get rated so they count toward writing stars.

Step 3: Spend 10 minutes rating 3 days your 1st week. After you submit your first article you’ll see a rating screen, where you’ll be asked to compare 2 articles. Select which is better and move on to the next. Pay attention to spelling, grammar and punctuation errors so your rates count as quality rates. Once you get that first rating star, just rate 2 times a week — never more than 10 minutes a session — to maintain. Your rating star is the ticket to ad revenue earnings.

Step 4: Explore other opportunities. Check the new titles posted daily in Marketplace and consider weekly contests. Or just keep finding and suggesting titles, and write what you want, when you can. Consider journalism award opportunities too. Make a Helium Zone. Join or create a Helium Group.
