In The Beginning...

As this is my first post about making money on eHow and my experiences so far, I'd like to give a little bit of background.

I've been messing around with niche blogs for around 6 months and making maybe $20/month total. And actually it's less than that because both a friend and I work on them so we split it. During this time I've learned a lot about SEO, internet marketing, website promotion, article marketing...all that good stuff. While we haven't been overly successful just yet, everyone knows it takes time to build up steady passive income streams.

During my countless hours reading about making money online, I repeatedly came across people discussing I can (still) never get enough of reading about people's earnings history on they continually see it rising, how excited they get when they reach a major milestone or goal, etc.

So mid-June of this year (2009) I finally started writing on eHow myself. For the first few weeks I went pretty crazy, kinda just doing a general knowledge dump in "how to" format. I was impressed by how soon earnings started coming in. Only about $4 for the last half of June (at about 30 articles), but by mid July I had been doing it for a full month and was at $17. Then by the end of July I had made about $30 for that month, bringing it up to around $35 total. I have had some pretty high (for me) days of earnings in late July, around $2.75 a few days. My hope is that I'll see more and more of those so I've set an August earnings goal of $60 which I think is achievable.

Overall I'm very happy with how things have been going. For the amount of work I put in, the payout is far better at this point than that from my niche blogs (although as I said before, I know those take longer to get going). This is mostly because you have to write content for the blog, then promote it (article marketing, directories, etc.), all that stuff. What I love about eHow is you basically can capitalize or piggyback off of eHow's authority on the web (and Google's love affair with it). I'll talk about that in a future post.

My plan for this blog is to regularly update it with my earnings (monthly earnings, major milestones, etc.) as well as talk about tips/tricks/methods that I have found to be effective on eHow.
