Indications are that as number of websites and blogs continue to grow at current rate, economics will swing in favor of online writing business entrepreneur and rates should go up as demand for good writers continues to far outstrip supply. Still it is unlikely that a rate of $3000 per article will be common in foreseeable future.
So best thing to do is to find a way to make a good steady income from your online writing business with current rates and current state of affairs. Actually this is not too difficult. I know online writers who comfortably make $4,000 on a monthly basis, without too much effort and that is by getting paid less than $11 on average for their articles.
The online writing business will favor kind of writer who leans more towards novel writing rather than short story or article writer. This is because a novel writer thrives on writing every day and trying to increase their daily output. This is in contrast to short story writer who waits for inspiration to write his brief piece at virtually one sitting. Or professional freelance article writer who will tend to spend more time doing research and sending queries to publications rather than actual writing work.
The huge advantage that online writing business entrepreneur has is that they can use power of internet to guarantee a steady and constant flow of writing jobs which will leave them with lots of time to do what every writer should enjoy doing most - writing.
