Welcome to this month's newsletter.

If you've been reading my latest blog posts, you'll know that I've been talking a lot about making money as an affiliate marketer.

This is for two reasons. Firstly, it can be a really good way to earn money online from your writing, especially if you don't want to write books and prefere shorter pieces of writing. And secondly, it's my niche for this month.

You see, I've decided that because there are so many facets to online writing and self publishing, that it's best if I stick to one each month so that I can go more in depth with it.

Next month I'll be talking about making money from self publising.

I'm also going to be blogging more so that I can give you as much information I can on each subject. Plus each post will contain tips and useable information, which, if you act on it, will help you to earn more money from your writing and self publishing.

So don't dismiss what I'll be sending you. Read and absorb it and then act on it too.

And because this is the last newsletter for the year, I'll wish you all the best for the holiday season (which is summer here in Australia, so we'll be either spending more time outdoors, or if it's too hot, more time indoors in the air con) and I hope you have big writing goals for 2018 and that you achieve them all.

I've packed lots of information and writing projects in this month's newsletter including a free blogging course, a free PDF download of top copywriter, John Carlton's writing system and a writing opportunity with the TV company, Nickelodeon.

The Incredibly Easy Way to Get More Done and Earn More Money Online
By Ruth Barringham

Read it online at

When it comes to writing, you have to remeber the numbers. By that I mean that the more you write, the more money you can earn.


Because if you don't write much, or not at all, then how can you expect to make money from your writing?

So the more you write, the greater your income can be.

The problem with reading anything about how to make money online, is that it can make it seem as though there are short cuts to earning money online. But there aren't any shortcuts.

Yet this doesn't stop people from continually looking for the easiest and fastest ways to make money online. They waste days/weeks/months/years looking for the fast and simple way to do it.

While at the same time, the real entrepreneurs are simple showing up and doing the work.

Every day they pound away while others procrastinate, worry and generally let life get int he way of what they should be doing. And in the end, they achieve nothing or very little.

So if you're stuck in the "get rich quick" mindset and you've spent years looking for that illusive "secret" to making money online, what should you do instead?

How do you start to make money online?

You just start working. It's that simple. There is no big secret and there's nothing your missing.

The hardest thing about making money online is just simply showing up for work every day. Yet at the same time, it's THE most important thing you can do.

There are many people who work at home as writers making money online and the way that they do it is by making it a habit to show up for work every day - no matter what.

Just stop and think about it for a moment.. How much money could you be earning if you simply sat down and worked online for a couple of hours a day? How much would that imporove your online income?

And I don't mean sitting down and surfing the net looking for a quick way to make money. I mean sitting down, writing out what it is you want to achieve, writing out a plan of how to achieve it, and then getting on with working your plan.

How to make working from home easier.

Regular habits make tasks easier. It's easy to do something when it's something that you do regularly every day.

Daily habits are best because doing something so often and so regularly makes you not only better at it but faster too. Just think of things you do daily like brushing your teeth, having a shower, making dinner, etc. How easy is it to do them because they are a daily habit?

Stop overthinking everything.

Another problem that can stop you from showing up for work every day is to overthink everything and think that you have to have to know absolutely everything before you can start. This can lead to putting things off.

You don't have to see the whole staircase to take the first step. It's like driving at night. Your headlights only light up a little of the way in front of you, but you drive anyway, knowing where you're heading and trusting you'll arrive eventually, even if there are a few roadblocks along the way.

Overthinking (worrying) can make you put things off and not start. On the other hand inurtia helps things that are already in motion to stay in motion.

And don't think of things you have to do as a project. Break them down into tasks. You can't do a project but you can complete the tasks necessary to complet the project. So if you need to make a website, break it down into tasks such as "get hosting and a domain name, write web page content, set up email account, etc" because these are "do-able" tasks whereas "make a website" is too overwhelming if you don't know the steps you need to take.

You're not too busy.

You also need to stop putting of your online business until you have time to work on it. If you do that you'll never 'find' the time. You have to MAKE the time.

Being 'too busy' to work on your online business is just another form of procrastination. It's a way to be lazy instead of sitting down and doing what you should be doing.

Having short-term goals can help too. Have a daily goal of what you want to achieve, even if you don't feel you have a lot of time.

For instance, have a daily goal of writing at least 500 words. Or a goal of publishing something online every day (or both) whether it's an article, a Tweet, a blog comment, a marketing article or a short blog post.

Whatever it is you want to acheive every day (and it can be something different every day), just make it a goal to do it.

Stop being too busy with other less important things.

Do some work every day, even if it's just a small amount - it all adds up.

Sit down even if you don't feel like it and be determined to achieve something every day.

Most importantly, just show up every day and do the work.

You can earn far more money if you publish several articles in a month, blog daily/weekly, write and publish ebooks and more.

But how much will you earn if you keep doing nothing except look for shortcuts to earning more money online.

Instead, put in the hours to do the work that will earn you money online and watch how quickly things change.

See how much your online income can grow.

How To Make Money From Writing Quickly
If you want to earn money from your writing, then you have to write consistently. You won't make any money (or very little) if you only write now and again, or not at all. Bloggers blog all the time and authors write more than one book. And there's a reason for that. Not only are successful writers consistent, they also write quickly because time is money, and I'm going to tell you how you can do the same.

The Most Important Thing You Must Do To Earn Money As a Writer
If you want advice on how to be a successful writer you'll find plenty of it online. Some of the advice is good and some is better. But if you want to earn as much money as possible from your writing, then there is one thing that you MUST do. And if you don't do it, you'll never be successful. And if you want to know what that one thing is, I'll tell you.

That’s all for now. I hope you found plenty to help and inspire you to write more and earn more.
