I've done a few writing gigs, but I'm not a really good writer and cannot charge the fees needed for it to be worth my time. I'm just looking for something that I can teach myself in a few months and start taking small projects and working my way up from there.

I've found that PHP, HTML and CSS to be the most demanded skills on sites like Elance, but the talent pool is flooded with overseas workers and Americans with so much more experience than me. Even when I was offering writing and virtual admin services on Elance I was having a hard time against them.

So, I figured that I'd ask the good people at slashdot, because I think most of you may have a good insight on this type of thing as an employer of freelancers or as the freelancer themselves. Thanks in advance."
