In my Year in Review post I said that I wasn't sure what I was going to do about Suite101 for 2010. While I like the prestige of writing for Suite101, I hadn't had a good return on my earnings considering how many articles I had written. However, after giving it a few weeks, I think I've had a change of heart.
Why I'm Sticking with Suite101
In order to stay within the conditions of my contract with Suite101, I added two new articles this month to try to stay current. I have to admit, I've been very lax since late November in adding articles, so I decided it was time to do so. While those articles didn't raise my numbers significantly, they did add to the fray and I noticed that my earnings were rising at a nice rate. Maybe like eHow, it just takes awhile and a certain number of articles before you start seeing a difference in earnings. I noticed at eHow around article 36 I began seeing the income add up. At Suite101 I now have 32 articles and the earnings are growing at a better rate. I think if I stick to it now, the earnings may increase to the point where I feel it is a profitable use of my time. I hope so.
So, What's My Problem?
My biggest problem over the next two or three months is time. While I am working on my novel, I only want to write articles for the sites that are the most profitable for me so I don't waste my writing time. Constant-Content, eHow and Examiner are my most profitable sites at the moment, and keeping up with three sites is enough work without adding another one. But since my long-term goal is to build a good residual income base, it would be best for me to stick with Suite101. Now, if only I had more time in my day...
