Balancing Time To Write Online

Better Your Hubs SEO Page Rank

Free - Write - Earn

What Free Time?

Hello Hubbers,

I'm writing this Hub to speak about time. How do you manage your time to write online?

When I first started to write online I wrote constantly. Any time I could find I sat in front of the computer and started to write but after I started writing I realized I had a whole lot to learn before I would start to earn money online.

OK, I spent endless hours alone trying to figure out what would work best for me. After researching and many trial and errors, I realized Pay Per Click Publisher Networks complimented my Internet Writing Business. I decided to put my focus on joining revenue sharing websites that let me earn Adsense, Kontera, Infolinks and Chitika revenue.

Writing at revenue sharing websites fits my personality and fits my lifestyle.

When I first started joining revenue sharing websites, I immediately organized. I would click on someones link which brought me to a revenue sharing website to join. I would then create a folder within my email account and place the confirmation email into the folder. When joining dozens of revenue sharing websites it's easy to forget usernames and passwords. Being organized from the get go is a wise move. I was new to writing online and I wanted to make sure I had everything at my fingertips when and if needed.

After joining dozens of revenue sharing websites, I took the time to learn how to navigate and get familiar with each website. I was a beginner at one time and a part of growing an Internet Writing Business is to learn how to use each website. It's time consuming but I feel it is something all article writers need to experience. Learning and researching takes up so much time but there does come a time when it gets easy and it becomes a whole lot of fun. It's now second nature to me. I cruise along daily.

Get Paid To Write

Time Management

After learning what I needed to learn in order to expand and grow an Internet Writing Business I wrote constantly. There were days I worked in front of the computer for twelve hours straight. No joke. I would take occasional short breaks, make some coffee and get right back to it. Why? The reason why I spent twelve hour days in front of the computer was because I finally understood what I needed to do in order to start earning revenue online and realized residual income would follow. It excited me. I knew the more I wrote the more of an opportunity I had to earn daily revenue. Yes, daily revenue and when I started to earn pennies I knew I could turn those pennies eared into dollars if I kept at it and so I did. It's 9/15/11 and I can now say I earn residual income whether I work online or not. I did the time and now reaping the rewards.

I kept up with daily writing for almost two years. I past up hanging out with friends and I past up working extra hours at my job. I feel it was worth the price to pay. Living without for a short time in my eyes was a small price to pay to making good steady daily residual income.

After spending two years working my Internet Writing Business for it to start working for me, I decided it was time to reevaluate how much time I spend in front of the computer. I don't need to work in front of the computer for twelve hours a day anymore. I don't need to pass up good times with family and friends in order to make my Internet Writing Business to work in my favor. So this is what I decided to do.

Once a week while doing laundry, paying bills or cleaning house I break up my day with writing online. I'll get up, make a cup of coffee and write for a couple of hours. Then I would go do some laundry, cleaning or other errands and come back to the computer to write some more. I'll write for a couple of hours then go back to what I was doing to get ready for the coming week. Then of course have dinner, make that last cup of coffee for the day and write for a few more hours. During the rest of my week I'll choose a few days to write before I head out for the day. I might not write for a couple of hours but I do some kind of writing. On days I write before I head out I'll write a few backlinks then shut down the computer. Sometimes I'll create a few backlinks, a Hub or a blog. Just like at your job you become better and faster at what you do. I don't need to spend endless hours in front of the computer anymore.

There will come a time when you don't need to work in front of your computer for endless hours each day. There will come a time when you can spend about ten hours a week writing online to continue the expansion of your Internet Writing Business. There will come a time you won't check your revenue until the end of the day. There will come a time your business starts working for you rather than you constantly working the business.

Teach yourself how to manage your time better. Program yourself work smarter not harder.

Good for you, glad you are being rewarded for all that hard work, twelve hours a day is a lot. I am still going through the organizing passwords and allocating time phase, and it's a lot easier to break up the day like you do. I'm just beginning to make a little passive income, not even a buck a day yet.

Hello All,

I'm so happy to hear that this Hub helps and gives hope.

I've have read so many Hubs sharing their experiences growing an Internet Writing Business and I put to practice what they have told me.

At first I thought writing online would be easy but after going through the motions for so long I have learned that it becomes easier.

Thanks,M, for the "hang in there" encouragement. I spend way too much time reading and commenting.I've got to make some kind of a schedule! When I joined, I was not interested in making money. When I saw how small my retirement check was going to be, I had a QUICK change of mind!LOL!
