Determination and persistence will give you a head start and will ensure that you are way ahead of the pack when it comes to PC gaming writing. If you want to get a bit of an edge then the tips below should help.
- You will have to have some examples of your writing on display if you hope to become respected as a PC gaming writer. The best way to do this is to create a blog of your own. Your website should look professional and the content in it needs to be of the highest quality.
Building up a loyal following and becoming well known means that you could end up having work landing on your lap. It will take time for you to build up your reputation so while you are waiting for this, you can use ads on your site to make a bit of money.
- You need to network in order to make it as a writer; this really is a business where getting to know the right people can be a huge help. Many people find it hard to break the ice in the beginning but flattery is a great way to do this. Leave some flattering comments on the websites of the big PC gaming writers but don't go over the top. You could also write posts on your websites that are linked to their work this is sure to put you on their radar.
- Send guest posts to popular gaming websites. You won't get paid for this (at least not in the beginning) but you will be able to build your reputation.
