Since we were in the house this weekend due to hurricane Irene, I got a chance to run a few numbers. Actually, running is the wrong word to use. I slowly and carefully raised my exhausted index finger to left mouse click on the Excel spreadsheet to quietly examine my numbers. You see, I needed […]

This post was inspired by Michael’s (Demand Studio Review) comment. His comment was regarding something I had written about the eHow writer’s compensation program closure. He had inquired as to why I did not take my eHow articles and place them on a newly created website to earn residual income off of the 300 or […]

It actually takes currency to make money. It’s up to you to determine your currency. I sometimes roam around the Internet reading how some bloggers/writers built their online empire (well not empire, but you know what I mean). Some people create sites, hire writers and earn money. Others purchase memberships to sites that help them […]

How Many Bloggers Do You Know?

In your offline world, how many bloggers do you know? This question popped into my mind the other day as I was running. I set up my first site in 1999 (as pitiful as it looked) and didn’t get started blogging until 2008. When I earned my first 63 cents back in 2006, I didn’t […]

Oh man, I remember when I first realized I could earn money as an online writer, I felt like I worked all the time. I’d get up early and write before the kids woke up. Once I got them up, ready for school and successfully on the school bus, I’d go back to work. Sometimes […]

I normally don’t post proof of my income. I don’t really think it’s necessary because you guys know that I shoot from the hip and tell you like it is. However, I think that showing you a screen clip of my earnings will help you see what making a few adjustments can do. Below I’m […]

I’m a big fan of Brian Tracy. For those of you not familiar with him he is a motivational speaker and a successful businessman. I was introduced to his teaching several years ago by my husband. My husband, at one point in his career, was involved in sales and Brian Tracy was an integral part […]

It’s very rare that I do guest posts, but when Tammy from Infolinks asked me to write one and share my experience with Infolinks, I couldn’t resist. Since it’s Friday (and you shouldn’t have to work hard on a Friday), take a few minutes to check out the guest post The Joys and Pitfalls of […]

4 ½ Years and 500 Posts to Achieve One Goal

It took 4 ½ years (I left my last part-time job on February 9, 2007 and today is August 4, 2011) and 500 posts later for me to reach one of my goals. Shortly after taking on line writing seriously one of my early dreams was to become self sufficient. In other words I wanted […]
