eHow Writers Actually Make Decent Money

I haven’t posted too much in this blog this month for a couple reasons. The first was my initial hesitation to continue branding a blog about eHow when I hadn’t made any money on the site and wasn’t sure if I would stick around. I did touch on the subject of the earnings issues in a post earlier this month but didn’t go into details. In summary a small group of people who signed up for eHow during a window of approximately three weeks spanning late July through roughly the 20th of August were improperly enrolled in the Writer’ Compensation Program (WCP) and thus were not getting credit for the money they made. Naturally I was in the group. In about 15 days writing for eHow in August I wrote 36 articles and as September progressed I slowed my article writing not being sure that the problem would be fixed or not.

Of course it was and now I and everyone else from our group of newcomers were back-credited for earnings earned but not previously recorded. It turns out I did quite well for a first month and a moderate sized article library in it’s infancy. In fact as I write this my eCPM is approximately two-three times that of my longevity blog which is nearing five months old now. I am quite happy with those results and will have to renew my effort to contribute to the eHow library in October. This month, I have only written 15 articles and I have fallen short of my original goal of hitting 100 articles by the end of September. I feel, however, the earnings hiccup was an adequate excuse and I will extend this goal out one more month and try to hit 100 by Halloween.

So, to all the zero club members out there congratulations to you for sticking it out and to those of you who have befriended me I appreciate it. Good luck to you all.

In closing I thought I would put a shameless plug in for my most recent article: How to Lower Prostate Cancer Risk With Better Nutrition. This last article was written just a few days after the earning bug was fixed and thus it was the first article I had written having known that eHow really does pay it’s writers. :) I will remember this one.
