Internet Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ:INET), is an Internet media company, meaning they publish websites. Actually, they own and operate quite a lot of community and ecommerce sites and it turns out they have some writing positions open.
Writing is a great way to test the telecommuting waters, working part-time to get a feel for what it’s like to work from home and be compensated for your work instead of your attendance. Lots of telecommuters are either writers by nature or have turned to writing to supplement their work-at-home income. If you’re a writer by nature, it’s easy, but if even if you’re not, it’s still possible to find something that truly interests you and hone your skills. Given the wide variety of subject matters Internet Brands, Inc. deals with, it seems like a great place to look for open work at home writing jobs.
