Article or blog writing is a job that anyone can do. In fact, there will always be a high demand for it and that is why competition among writers is not usually an issue. It only is when it comes to multiple writers applying for writing jobs offered by a popular publication. However, even though it is disappointing to writers who don’t get the job at the publication where they had applied, there are other jobs waiting for them.
