Making Money

I certainly haven't made my first million yet, but I sure am trying! I even find myself dreaming of new ideas to write about (yes, really!). I have always been a vivid dreamer, and can even lay claim to coming up with a new crochet design in my sleep.
Every great recipe is a possibility, and I find myself analyzing everything that I do, like to do, know about, etc, considering if this, too, could turn into a how-to article that will earn money on the Internet.
In addition, if you are going to "win" at this game, you also need to educate yourself, because there are certainly a lot of tricks to succeeding. I see so many people around me who are not, and wonder what the difference between them is.

Writing Articles for eHow

I've been writing madly, and covering a whole array of subjects. I once heard a wise person say (or rather, I read on her blog) that women have a word limit they are trying to reach, and I think that perhaps I am getting close!

You have to know, when I stagger out of bed at 6:46am, I do not have a clue what that idea was, and so I need to jot it down promptly!

Working At Home

I've been writing since I was in fifth grade. I've written fiction stories, poetry, real-life stories, and I've written for the local newspaper, The Leader Herald. My claim to fame was an article about the Chimney Swifts, which got me just a wee bit of national attention!
We live out in the frozen tundra, and working from home to get my paycheck is the ideal situation for all of us!
Check in often, read new articles I have written, and feel free to comment!
