A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about how you can earn money for your writing and work from home. For me, this is a major deal because, as those who follow this blog know, I am due in July with my first child, and I am really trying to figure out how to be able to stay home with him, even if it means working during his naps and when he (hopefully) sleeps.
Shortly after writing that post, I left for a trip to Spain and Ireland. When I returned, I set about the task of really making the most from my Examiner.com writing role. The first thing I did was take advantage of the resources that the website has available to help me improve my writing and tailor it to their standards. I discovered that certain types of articles and media include incentive pay, so I decided to make sure that I completed as many of those article types as the site allows each week in order to get that pay.
Next, I studied what the site defines as newsworthy content. For writers who consistently produce newsworthy content, the site will sometimes promote your content and eventually submit it to news partners. In the past week, I worked hard to find content that was both on topic and newsworthy. This included such articles as "Couple weds after 21-year engagement", "Bakery refuses to supply wedding cake for same-sex couple", "Former Facebook president's $10 million wedding raises red flags", and a personal favorite, "Wedding invitation blown up after police suspect it is explosive device". I am now eligible to have my articles promoted in the news section of the site, and with continued diligence, I can work towards even more exposure.
My earnings have continued to increase even just over the last week. I still have a long way to go, but the more I learn through the information provided by Examiner.com, the more I can focus my writing to maximize my full earning potential. I requested an additional title this week, and it is my hope that in a few months, I will be able to earn a significant income from my writing there, as well as here.
As I said in my previous post, Examiner pays a $50 referral fee for writers who apply through my referral link and are accepted. THERE IS NO COST TO JOIN. If you are interested in joining Examiner.com as a writer, please use my link to do so and then email me once your application has been submitted. If you are approved, I will share $10 from the one-time referral fee with you once it is paid to me.
