There is nothing like having a specific goal to help focus your work. I want a Dell UltraSharp 2407FPW 24 inch LCD Widescreen Monitor! I also want to get it using money I earn online using nothing but my computer, freely available Internet resources, and my writing skills. Lastly, I don’t want to work for peanuts and wait forever to make this happen. I want the monitor now and I want to earn at least $20/hour for my efforts.
I posted a personal challenge on the 5 Bucks a Day members forum today. That, and this post, are my official proclamation to the world that his will happen – I will have a new Dell UltraSharp 2407FPW 24 inch LCD Widescreen Monitor!
Dennis Becker, the author of “5 Bucks a Day” and owner of the members’ forum for owners of the book, has recently been adding a number of free download resources for the forum members that are related to article writing and selling articles. (Membership to the forum is included with the purchase of the “5 Bucks a Day” e-book.) Two specific e-books added to the members download area are Content Speed Writing and Increase Your Associated Content Profits. I plan to apply what I learned from these books to getting the money for my new monitor.
As a member of the forum I have learned a number of ways to earn money online. One of them is writing content articles and selling them to sites that pay authors for original new content. Usually, forum members focus on building projects that will earn them $5/day continually. But, one of the discussion threads introduced a way to sell articles for a quick profit.
Since I want my new monitor now!!!! I decided to use this short term article writing/selling strategy to earn the cash for my new monitor. I outlined the details of the plan in the original forum post. Basically, I think that I can write 30-40 articles in 20 hours which will earn me between $600 and $800 (enough to buy the monitor on eBay.) My target hourly income rate is $40 per hour. I would also like to have the work completed and the money in my back account within 4-6 weeks.

P.S. Of course, I will have plenty of pictures and video of my new monitor when it arrives!!!
