Remember that song? It’s been stuck in my head ever since I made the decision to come back to internet writing professionally. I started this site in 2008 and at that time,I was supporting my family of 8 with the revenue I made from write-for-cash sites,revenue sharing sites,content mills [...]

How to Write a Roundup Article

Roundup articles are a little like “freebies”for web content writers. Presumably you’ve been writing in the same niche for a while and have several articles about a few very precise topics.

Mini Touchscreen Laptop –irrelevant but awesome

A roundup article is basically a compilation of all those articles,with links to several [...]

note to self:never publish this

I keep a page with this title on each one of my sites,saved as a draft or password protected. I use it as a general “things to do next”and a place to document the invisible work I’ve done on the site. It’s amazing that I can remember what each of my six kids [...]

Writing for Bukisa,One year anniversary

If you haven’t heard of Bukisa as a writing site,it’s probably because it’s not taken very seriously as a source of income. The site pays on a monthly $/1000 which changes,based on the previous month’s earnings for the entire site. Consequently,crappy articles are paid at the same rate as good articles,and [...]

Textbroker…nevermind

I haven’t been over to textbroker for a while. There are a few reasons.

Right place at the right time- SWEET

I know you skim over marketing emails,too. 90% of them are just spam- designed to remind you that you once thought something was interesting enough to add yourself to an email list. But the fact is,for me anyhow,that if I don’t buy it right away,chances are that I won’t even open [...]

OMG I’m writing for DS again

So,much to my surprise,I’m currently registered as a writer at Demand Studios.

Again.

If you don’t know the back story,here’s a link to the drama:OMG I got fired from DS

When Eve originally informed me of their decision,I sent a response,stating my side of the story. I sent a [...]

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 [...]
