Busy time of year!

Wow, I think that trying to start up a new online career has been very difficult with the holiday season upon us. I have been so busy around the house that it's been very hard to find time to keep up with my writing. I have published a couple more articles though. I guess I hope to have 15 eHow articles done by January. Right now I have 9. I'm not sure I'll have time to accomplish this goal. Oh well, start small is what I have to do right now. That's what's so great about working from home doing freelance work. You can do as much or as little as you want, when you have the time. No boss breathing down your throat. I guess I'll just be happy with whatever I'm able to accomplish and whatever money I make. So far my surveys have been paying fairly well in the last few months so I'm pleased with that. However, my hope is to end survey taking in favor of writing full time. But there's so much to learn about being successful. I really am a newbie!

I managed to sneak in a quick ehow article this morning. Yesterday I was able to tweak my existing articles so that when I search randomly for my topic on Yahoo, my articles are now the first links that appear. I am so pleased to have gotten down the basics of SEO so quickly! I just need to keep researching and learning more and more ways to promote my articles. I really want to make this work. Once I have a good number of articles published, I'm hoping to move on to other writing sites and also other ways to make money online. So far surveys and writing are my only options but I'm hoping to eventually give up my survey days for good. Maybe in 2009!

I'm back!

I just got back from a trip to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. It was a good break from the computer, but now I'm ready to start making more money online! After I get the house in order, I plan to start up again and write several articles for ehow this week. I was happy to see that I made my first earnings with ehow last week. I can't wait to watch it grow!
