I’ve got about 20 or so articles published to eHow under the discontinued Writer’s Compensation Program, which pays a share of the ad revenue generated each month. Usually the money trickles in a few cents at a time, but so far this month my How to Prepare for an Early Retirement article has earned me a few dollars already! Don’t know how but I’m not complaining. Based on my article earning stats, I doubt this is a trend but it’s kind of fun. Anyway, I reviewed the article page to see what kind of ads were there and they look the same as usual. So I guess I just got lucky.
The article is pretty good, if I do say so myself – simple and to the point. It’s actually good advice for anyone, not just those preparing for an early retirement. In a nutshell, assess your current situation, cut expenses, pay off debt, start saving, be frugal, and practice being retired. That’s it. Easier said than done, I know, but you’ve got to start some time and the best time is now! Retirement will be here whether you’re ready or not, so quit procrastinating and take some positive action, ok?
