Online Journalists

History

One of the greatest things about the World Wide Web is that people can gain access to information from around the world with a click of a mouse or swipe of a finger. Whether one wants to know about international news, current events, fitness trends, or recipes, the Internet has a wealth of information on the topic. This would not be possible without the work of writers such as online journalists.

As newspapers, journals, businesses, and organizations continue to make their presence known on the Internet, job opportunities will continue to open up for writers to create, edit, and update the content of sites. The popularity of news sites such as the Wall Street Journal Online (http://online.wsj.com), New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com), and CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com), many of which have been successful in establishing paywalls that generate considerable revenue, prove that there is a market for dependable, timely online news outlets.
