It was in November 2008 that I started writing for eHow. Inspired by Pat’s eHow experiment at SmartPassiveIncome.com I planned to write a 100 articles in a month. Like many of my plans that didn’t happen but I eventually wrote six articles for them but two of them were later deleted so I only have four articles there now.
So far I have earned $74.71. I also earned about that much in affiliate income but I don’t have any links now. That might not sound too impressive but considering I spent maybe three hours writing the articles it is a pretty good hourly rate. I’m on pace to make slightly more than $35 from them this year and that should continue in the future. It is now a steady passive income source.
Ehow has changed the way their site works so I can’t submit any more articles and make passive income. There are other similar sites out there but I’m not sure if any of them are worth writing for. I wish I would have wrote more articles for eHow but I won’t complain about making $35 this year for doing nothing.
