Writing Experiment Wrap-Up

I’ve been running this writing experiment for a year now, and it’s time to evaluate it. I’ll answer the questions listed on my About page. Did I have fun? Was I good at it? Did I make any money?

The Big Questions

Did I have fun even when treating writing like a job? Hell yes. . . . → Read More: Writing Experiment Wrap-Up

September Results

September was a complete success for me! I earned $105 by writing articles for Demand Studios. What an awesome feeling! I know a hundred dollars isn’t much, but it sure beats the measly $5 per month I’ve been making from eHow.

The really cool thing about September is I got a great idea for my . . . → Read More: September Results

August Results

I did not finish my goals for August, but I wouldn’t call this month a failure. I began writing eHow articles for Demand Studios, which is huge community of freelance writers. I was accepted to Demand Studios automatically because I had already written for eHow.

Writing for Demand Studios is much more structured than I . . . → Read More: August Results

May Results

May has been a disappointing month as far as my eBook is concerned. I had over two thousand visitors from Google ads and 0 sales from them. The only two sales I made were from newsletter subscribers, giving me a grand total of $10 of earnings.

March 2010 Results

March was a great month for my writing! I finished writing my eBook, which came out to about 43 pages and a little over 17,000 words of solid content.

February Results and March Plans

February Results

This month I made $4.98 from eHow. Not bad. I’m hoping eHow will give me a steady five bucks per month for infinity. Five bucks per month isn’t much, but it’s still extra money. I didn’t do a single thing on eHow this month, except complain about not receiving a 1099 so I . . . → Read More: February Results and March Plans

January 2010 Results

In January I came up with a list of 14 eBook ideas that I could write and sell online. I collected a ton of marketing data about each idea that helped me decide on which eBook to write. I decided to write my book about setting and achieving goals. See my last post for more . . . → Read More: January 2010 Results

December 2009 Results

In December I wanted to polish my eHow articles, promote them on other web sites, and expand my eHow community by adding friends and making comments on other writers’ articles. I proofread all 25 of my articles (the one article that was previously deleted by eHow staff has been reinstated), added images to the articles . . . → Read More: December 2009 Results
