The FTC as of Dec 1st has implemented new rules which affect EVERY web writer. It has to do with how you post reviews of anything at all you write up. You can be fined over $10,000 if you fail to follow their rules! I've been busy the past two days straight working on this.

I have posted a link at the bottom of every page on my LisaShea site, so my own site is covered -

The FTC page on the issue, with examples, is here -

If you do any web writing at all, make sure you are doing this properly on each site!

Absolutely the main key is to just start DOING IT. Set up your own website and start reviewing things you use a lot and have expertise in. Put a copy of every review on Amazon. Once you get a library built, the traffic will come to you exponentially and publishers will start to find you. Then you can go promote yourself at professional websites if you want - or sometimes they will come and recruit you.

By proofreading do you mean where someone gives you a book and you give them the errors you find? LOTS of writers on the web need this type of help. Again, set up a website that explains your rates, your offers and so on. Then start hanging out on writer's forums. When someone talks about needing help with their book, offer to be that help. I'd even offer to do a few for free to build up your references page, your testimonials page and so on.

Make sure you have a Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. page set up so you are getting attention in all the social media!
