List My 5 - Ground Floor Writing Site Opportunity

Hey there ehow friends! Since I posted about an ehow related topic on my other blog I thought I would drop the link here for those that may be interested. You may already be onboard with LM5 or this may be something new to think about it. If you're looking for another site to write for that will help drive traffic to your ehow articles check out the following link.          

Welcome to Mom's Online Money Makers!: List My 5 - Ground Floor Writing Site Opportunity

How to Shop for FREE at Amazon.com will show you how to earn Amazon rewards and make purchases without spending any of your "real money." Hope to see you there!

P.S. October is still looking great for me...will most likely make payout again with $8.70 as of today! Hope you're having a good month as well.  LM5 may deserve some credit for my recently improved ehow earnings  : )

Beware of Ehow Member Offering to Buy Your Account (or take for free)

I received a bizarre ehow message today and wanted to share it with you. Be on the lookout for similar messages and please report them to ehow. The username of this person is relicon but it sounds like he may have other aliases. Here's the message in red below. The comments in black is what was going through my mind as I was reading it.  

Unfortunately, according the responses I got in the forum regarding this message, I'm not the only one he's contacted about doing this. Have you had any contact with this person or anyone else making a similar request? If so, did you respond or report it to ehow? 

"As you already know, ehow.com is no longer accepting new articles. Good intro...stating the obvious when you don't know what else to say.

I was wondering if I could have your ehow account for free. BAM! That's the sound of my jaw hitting the keyboard.

If not, I can buy it from you with a satisfying price. Hmmm....how satisfying?

I'm doing this because I would like to own your account and promote your ehow articles for residual income. Of course you would.

I'll just try to promote your articles and hope it'll make some views. Wow, now I'm really impressed. I'd never thought of doing that before!

If you don't use your ehow account anymore or you've given up already, you can give me your account for free or I can buy them from you. Given up? Does he not understand the concept of passive income?

If you do decide to give it to me or sell it to me, don't forget to change your personal stuff like your paypal and social security in your ehow account details. Of course, how dumb do you think I am?

I bought ehow accounts in the past 3 months and some people don't change their personal stuff in their ehow. Just 2 let u know. I really hope this is not true. Why would anyone leave their personal info on the account if they did sell it to him?

I'm really good at promoting articles, I hope you'll make the decision. I'll buy your ehow account even if it costs me $100. Hey, big spender...where've you been all my life? 

please let me know your decision. thank you." Oh no, kind sir, thank you! Thank you for this ridiculous proposal that gave me quite a chuckle. So who's the prankster? Anyone want to confess?

I Finally Made Payout! How About You?

When ehow shut down the WCP I was left with 30 articles and very discouraging earnings and not much to say about ehow, so this blog sat neglected since.....WOW....June 11th?....has it really been 4 months?

Time flies when you're not obsessing over ehow, I guess  = )

Anyway, I thought I would add some positive comments here about my earnings. I hope to hear more of the same from you so please go ahead and brag about you're Sept. earnings or feel free to vent if you're discouraged.

Although only a few of my 30 articles are making money consistently every month, I've been sooooo close to breaking that $10 minimum several times in the past. Well, last month I finally did it! I closed out September with $11.30.  I had only made payout one other time and that was in June of '09.

I would be very pleased if this became the norm going forward. Although 11 bucks won't even pay the internet bill, it would serve as a monthly reminder that the time I put into ehow was a good investment in my future. I'm going to think of any future payments I receive as interest on a savings account that I opened last year and forgot about.  I haven't been making any deposits to it but the amount I've already put in is slowly paying off.  

My earnings so far for October are $3.35 so it looks like a good possibility that I'm on track for another payout in November.  We all know it's too soon to make that assumption so I'll let you know how things turn out at the end of the month.

How are you doing with your articles that remain on ehow? Was September a good month for you too?

Note: If you'd like to be added to my friend list in the left sidebar, just leave a comment and follow or subscribe to this blog. Then send a note on ehow to bestmommy asking me to add your ehow profile link to the list. Hope to hear from you! There's always room for one more!
