Making Money Online Isn't Easy
If someone tells you it is, either they're doing well and they've forgotten how hard it is in the beginning, or they are lying.It can be easy once you have a passive income stream (or better yet, set of streams) set up and flowing nicely. But this can take years to establish, and for most people who make money online, it does take years.
If you want to make money online, look forward to hours and hours everyday of working, and being bored with the tediousness and frustration of doing the same things day in and day out.
There's no one to keep you motivated except yourself. It's all up to YOU to get yourself going every day, and do what needs to be done.
If you write articles for residual income, eventually you will start to see a steady flow of income from work you've done in the past. But it really is worth it, especially when you see and article you wrote two years ago steadily making you five or ten bucks every month. Not all of your articles will make this kind of return, many will make a dollar or less a month, some pennies, and the occasional article none at all.
But if you figure that the average article makes about a dollar per month, you can estimate how many articles you will need in your library (over many sites if you are smart!) to make a decent, livable residual income. If you need 5000 dollars a month to live comfortably, and you can regularly write 5 articles a day, then you can easily reach a livable passive income withing about two and a half years.
I've been writing for three years, but I don't make even close to that, only less than a thousand a month. The point I'm trying to make is that no, it isn't easy. It's boring. But it certainly is doable, and there are many people out there doing it.
