Publishing Articles Online

I have been writing online for a coupe of years now, and found it to be work that is rewarding in a couple of ways. One is that the more I write the more I research. Learning about how to do research has been a wondrous journey because there are so many available sources on and offline. Mostly I write non-fiction articles and I have narrowed my articles to a main ezine (online magazine) that has a great forum and great articles. The administration is right on and willing to help in any way needed, as are the forum members.  If you look to the right of my post, and down, you will see my latest articles linked to the ezine, infobarrel. Please feel free to explore.

The second rewarding work result is making a bit of google adsense dollars. It hasn't happened fast for me, but I have received some income and hopefully it will grow. The more published articles, the more adsense money is made. It becomes a passive income for many writers who hit the jackpot immediately. Usually it takes a couple hundred articles to even start. So, one must enjoy writing, and not be in a hurry to make money from it because it doesn't happen that way. I am working on 200 articles at IB (infobarrel), and have 155 to date. I have articles on other sites, but haven't kept up on them since I started at IB. It's just that good of an ezine, so I have stuck with them.

Another reward is the online friends from all over the world that I have made. That is really exciting, and it leads to more possibilities for money and fame. An example is this - recently a fellow IB writer contacted me about using a photo of mine. He is on his 3rd book and was submitting my photo to his publisher to see if it would work. Unfortunately it didn't, but what an awesome possibility for an image to get credit in a book - all this from an online friend who happened to see my comment on another writer's piece about a photograph!

I have also have some wonderful connections with readers of this blog about an article I wrote about my dad piloting The Knockout Dropper in WWII.

Yes, publishing articles online has been a rewarding experience.

Lunar Eclipse Today!

 This fabulous video shows what is happening, courtesy of NASA. Love it!

The lunar eclipse today follows the May 20th solar eclipse and pre-empts the Venus transit. The cosmos is speaking. I have been "listening" by following my inner voice that definitely woke me up this morning at 4:20am and said, "Get up and look outside." So, I did. The cosmos is speaking. I couldn't take my eyes off the moon. What a beauty. Full moon tonite, in Sagittarius. Strange and graceful tidings for one day. The view just made me grateful, enhanced my knowingness

I love this quote from an email received this morning and thought I'd share it with you.

"Hold integrity in all that you are and all that you do. Learn to travel light. Know you are stepping into the veil and opening up the connections between yourselves and all the shifts about to be. There is nothing to fear. it is just new. You are ahead of the curve of many. So, you will be faced with many who don't understand what you are doing or why. You are not here to follow their paths or their fears. You are here to know what you need to do. You are here to be courageous and trust what your inner knowing tells you." Guardian Advice
