The Suite Smell of Success

I’ve been writing for Suite 101 since April of 2007. I’ve added new articles on a very slow and sometimes steady pace. I barely go above the minimum requirement of 10 articles every three months (14 articles now that I’m a Feature Writer). I added 5 new articles in January, 5 in December and 6 in November.

On one rare occasion I added 24 articles in a three-month period of time. So you can see that I’m not writing for them at a break-neck speed. Imagine my surprise when I found that my January earnings exceeded my December earnings by approximately $100. Not enough for my husband to quit his job, but a step in the right direction.

The Reason for the Increase?

I could sit here and come up with all kinds of formulas as to why the earnings jumped, but it would be nothing but speculation. I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. I’m going to take the money and run.

It’s amazing how an increase in earnings is motivation to write more. Who knows, I might actually post 17 new articles to my Suite 101 account in the next three-month period of time…or maybe not. Why fix what aint broken?

    Inspiring! Thanks for sharing. I’ve got one article published with Suite101, so I definitely need to get cracking. Lots of ideas, though!

    Awesome! My December and January were awful, but so far February is looking great!

    Oh, and my Bukisa earnings have shot up in the next couple of days, so that’s nice, too.

    Congratulations on your success! Yes, a little monetary incentive is a great way to get motivated. Sometimes I’ll get a random affiliate sale from a site I haven’t worked on in a while, and suddenly I am writing 5 new blog posts for it, hah. 😉
