Now, Success Magazine is a great resource but I did find things like advice from Doctors on how to stay healthy (shocker: exercise and lose weight), as well as closing the sale (three things I found I do naturally anyway). There was another by an entrepreneur, and another by a woman whose main topic dealt with her child's soccer game and jumper cables. The articles were approximately 400 words in length.
I know articles don't pay a lot of money. If they are accepted, most magazines send about 200-300 for your great insights, but if a soccer mom can get paid for saying shit like jump-starting a career is like jump-starting a car, or you need another car to jump-start your car just like you need help from another person when jump-starting your career, then fuck... I'm a wizard.
What bothered me is that SM (soccer mom) put all her career troubles at the feet of another person. I stand here (right. I'm sitting) and say, you also must HAVE a car in order to jump-start it. You must also do the work by turning the key in the ignition. Sometimes there's a lag, or a grinding as the motor tries to kick.
I could have written that article. Hell, any blogger writes that kind of article on a daily basis. Do you know what you make in a single day on your job? I do. If I were paid 200 for every blog I wrote, that would be a tidy part time gig, no?
So now I'm thinking, how can I get someone to buy my blogs every day for 200. I'll go on sale, even. Let's say 150. I can quit my dayjob, write a blog every day and spend the rest of my time doing full-time writing. It's a cinch.
