Design Your Writing Career

Everyone in my “real life”doesn’t know what I do for a living. It’s not that I’m secretive,it’s just that people assume a homeschooling mom of six is plenty busy enough,right? In fact,about 6 months into this business,when I was working several hours a day to build up my body of [...]

Your Free Work Number

Are you like me- do you HATE the idea of having your home phone number online for everyone to have access to,but you understand some of your clients might prefer to communicate via phone. They hire YOU to be their internet person because they don’t enjoy it. So like it or not,sometimes we [...]

If you've been writing online for over a year,do this NOW

OK,after you read this,you will understand why I think you should have an annual meeting with yourself,to knock out this important task. Ready?

So every year you’re writing these articles that are evergreen,yes,but also sometimes seasonal,right? You’ve got a handful of Valentine’s Day articles,a few back-to-school articles and [...]

Newest writing site that I love

OK,this one isn’t new and I can’t even say that it’s new to me. I signed up for Constant Content apparently in November of 2008. I’m not sure what the process was like (is it a sign-up or an application? I don’t remember) All I know is that I kept getting these emails every [...]

How to find new writing sites before anyone else

There are new websites offering opportunities for writers every day. It starts like a wave. One website is formed on the message boards of another website.

Work Today- Paid Tomorrow- awesome!

Job #1- you can scour the internet for terrible foreign websites. We’ve all seen them,they’re poorly translated [...]

New Freelance Writing Opp- On Facebook???

Imagine that- a freelance writing money-making application on facebook. It’s new,I can tell that there are conflicts between the writers and the editors (name a relationship more doomed?)

Anyway- here it is,have you ever come across a TERRIBLE WEBSITE? Where everything is spelled wrong,or the English is poorly translated? That’s what this [...]

Suite101 earnings

SO- last month,Suite101 nnounced that one of our fellow writers had just about reached the $5000 mark for August Earnings (or was it July?) Either way- that’s so darned inspiring. We all guessed and estimated and stalked eachother out,and finally they announced who the lucky lady was. She was definitely on my short-list,[...]

Sites that Pay Via Adsense

(meaning that your check comes FROM google,not the website)

The Google Adsense API is open for approved web developers,so that they can split the revenue from your articles with you. Every time a reader clicks on an ad,you get half (or another percentage) of the income and the developer gets the other [...]
