The Media Is Talking About Making Money Online

Ehow is in the news with a Wall Street Journal article (not linked because you have to be a paid subscriber to read it) and a local CA news affiliate interviewed an ehow writer.  Apparently the economic downturn has made people interested in and more willing to try home repairs on their own and ehow fills that niche nicely.

I found the ehow stats interesting: 600,000 articles and 150,000 videos.

The Wall Street Journal also published an article about freelance work from home jobs and this one is free to read without a subscription. It's a pretty good overview of where to find jobs and common pitfalls of freelance work.

First Post

I'm a stay-at-home mom in need of diaper money and I also happen to be a writer (a.k.a. starving artist). Serendipity sent me down the rabbit hole of web content writing. From week one, I was making $100 a week and I hope, with hard work and knowledge, to grow those earnings to $1000 or more.

I'll be sharing what I learn and what I know as I go. If you've ever wanted to start a freelance writing career or wondered how you could make money online, this is the blog for you.
