Here's an excerpt from the Editorial:
As you know, this ezine's mission (come to think of it, the mission for most of the things I write for writers) is to help you to make money writing in a fast-changing world. AND to have fun doing it…
By the way, I'm always reminding you that as soon as possible, you should transition from writing for others, to creating your own passive-income projects, which make money for you even while you sleep, and which go on making money for you for years, without you having to lift a finger.
Blogs are high on my list of passive income projects.
Blogging for fun: you never know what will happen with a blogI like to have fun while I write. You'll work longer and harder when a project is fun for you, but it won't seem like work, it's playing… and that play can pay off big-time.
Here's what can happen when you play with blogging:
* You can get hired to write on the blog's topic. This happens to me often, because I have so many blogs. Usually I pass the "will you write______" offer on to one of my students, because I always have more work than I can handle;
* You get an offer to buy the blog. When you blog, this happens constantly, because it's easier to buy an established blog than it is to create one. For example, Jeff, a member of Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) created a photography blog. It's his hobby. He started posting images he took with his new Nikon digital SLR. The blog was just two months old when he sold it for a four-figure sum. Not bad for a fun project. :-)
* Of course, you may create an outstanding project on your blog, which goes way beyond what anyone would have expected. For example, you may have seen the movie Julie & Julia -- but did you know that the movie started as a blog, then became a bestselling book, and then became a movie? Here's the original blog that started it all.
