Suite 101

Learning from the Suite 101 Google Smack Down

Let me start this post by admitting I’m not an Internet expert. I’m just a woman who liked creating websites, playing around with images and writing. My website creation, writing and photo hobby turned into a full-time career. Those are my only qualifications when it comes to this Internet beast. That being said, I learned [...]

Serenity Now

Serenity Now!

I had to interrupt my 4-year online writing recap to inject this minor vent and wake up call. For those of you who watched the TV show Seinfield, you know what I’m talking bout when I say “Serenity Now.”  For those of you who are not familiar with the show, here’s a clip of what [...]

Suite Making it Sweeter

As I was going through my year end numbers, I was seriously considering dropping Suite 101 from my freelance writing arsenal.  Well, let me rephrase that. I wouldn’t drop Suite entirely, but I was seriously considering stepping down as a Feature Writer because the financial return for meeting the once a week writing obligation was [...]

Re-Evaluating My Suite numbers

For the first time since I’ve been writing for Suite 101, I took a look at my numbers.  More than just the total PV’s and total revenue and percentage drop or increase from day to day or month to month, I finally looked at my progress (or lack there of) by topic. Unfortunately, I haven’t [...]

A lot of Suite 101 old timers are experiencing a bit of fluctuation in their Suite earnings and page views. The Suite powers are experimenting and making changes to the site. Of course when one thing changes it affects other things. I’ve shared before, that my Suite 101 earnings have dropped. It went from just [...]

Suite Just Got Sweeter!

Suite 101 recently made changes to their writing guidelines. For folks who write for Suite should take a moment to review the new writing guidelines. Cut to the Chase I’m guilty of being the typical online reader. I scanned through the announcement and pulled out two things that were of interest to me: We no [...]

Two Different Paths to The Same Spot

OK, here I go with the numbers again. After Suite posted their top 10 earners and top 100 page views, I had to take a look at my own stuff. It seems that I took two different paths but ended up in the same place. There's the Google path and the Suite path (which aint [...]

Drum Roll Please…

As of June 30, 2010, with one more day’s worth of numbers to go, I have officially reached the $2,000 residual income in one month mark! Touch and Go I’ve been close before, but didn’t quite reach it. My plummeting Suite 101 numbers didn’t help very much in reaching my goals. If my Suite numbers [...]

What’s Going On with My Suite Earnings?

I’m growing increasingly disappointed with my Suite 101 earnings. I would think that by adding more articles the income would go up, but it’s either stagnant or dropping. As you know, I keep pretty good income statistics and review them often (probably too often) to see if I’m expending my efforts in the right place. [...]

Let the Poaching Begin…

The eHow upheaval is causing a feeding frenzy. Just imagine how happy some of the other, less popular (or even popular) content sites were to hear that there are so many disgruntled eHowers. They stand to gain an influx of new writers, content and hopefully readers. I found it interesting to receive an email yesterday [...]
