So now I'm taking articles and spinning them in different ways for different sites.
Here's my latest eHow article: How to Rent Homeschool Tests , which is a different spin on my Suite 101 article on Homeschool Testing.
I also sold an article for $5.68 upfront, plus $1.75 per 1000 page views, to Associated Content on Cheap Used Laptops . You may recall that I wrote an article for eHow last week called How to Buy Refurbished Laptops Online. That article has earned $1.28 with 40 page views. That is a $32 per 1000 rate!
Each article is unique, but has different spin or different keywords for a similar topic, reducing the amount of research I need do to and also giving me an opportunity to evaluate the quality of each publishing platform.
AC's upfront money is nice--how long will it take to earn $5.68 in residuals at Suite101 or eHow? I don't know. On the other hand, I'll only get $1.75 per 1000 page views at AC, while I've made $1.28 for only FORTY on my refurbished laptop article at eHow.
I have picked up some substantial set-fee freelance work for the next 2 months and intend to continue with my 10K challenge. Check back to see how I balance a 3 month old, 10 year old, 7 year old, husband, college teaching, and freelancing.
