Slow going in earnings, but progress is progress, I suppose...
I don't think it's just me, as many others on the eHow community forums have been complaining that their eHow earnings are way done. Still, am on track to make payout this month too - at the moment, a bit over $15 for January. I've been managing to turn out articles at a pretty good clip - now up to 77 articles, which is not bad considering I started just before Christmas (less than a month ago). It's also hard to discern a clear pattern in which topics do well in terms of revenue and which ones do not - on the one hand, some articles on saving money or shopping or general financial advice have done well, but others haven't brought in a penny. And some recipe articles have brought in some earnings as well - not tons, but I was pleasantly surprised to see them bring in something, since I had assumed that people reading recipes were not looking to shop, just to learn how to cook something. I guess this goes to show that it's good to diversify the article base - you never know up front which article is going to be a big earner, and besides, it keeps things more interesting to write on multiple topics... Aiming for a 100 articles total by the end of the month, let's see how that goes.
