Article Writing Sites - Passive Income Update

Hi, eBayers, I just wanted to give an update on my article writing ventures. If you haven't tried article writing as a way to earn money from home, it is definitely worth looking into.

The Examiner. This was my first month's payment - $76.08 . The Examiner is looking for writers! Everyone is good at something, what are you good at? Maybe it is cake decorating, gardening, interior design, vegetarian cooking, crafts, bargain shopping, physical fitness, healthy living, or fixing things around the house. The Examiner will pay you to write for their site.

The Examiner is a highly indexed site - Google does the work for you by sending traffic there - all you do is write short (300 word) articles, 3-5 times a week. The more you write, the more you make. I shoot for 5 articles a week. You are paid based on traffic and advertising revenue. You can even include your affiliate links, links to your blog or website, or other links that benefit you - using discretion of course. Want to give it a shot? Here is what you do.

eHow. I have been writing for eHow for just over 2 years. (Has it been that long?) I have about 250 articles there. My August earnings were $377.70. And check this out, I didn't even write any articles in August! (Click here to see my articles by date - nothing for August 09.)This was 100% passive income. Like the Examiner, eHow is a highly indexed site that generates its own traffic, so all you do is post articles. Here are two great manuals that explain how to maximize your eHow earnings. I have read both of them and they are both very helpful.

Maximize eHow Earnings (by eHow's top earner)

One of my goals for 2009 was to generate $500 a month through writing online. As of August, my monthly total is $453.15. That's pretty good money for sitting at your computer a few hours a week and typing.

I hope you will check out these opportunities, they are definitely the real deal.

Happy Selling,

Hmmm, food for thought. I do know a lot about growing roses. I'll have to give it some thought.
