Maybe you’re a writer who is struggling to earn a decent living.

Maybe you have a certain flair for sharing your favorite products and services with friends via Instagram, Pinterest or otherwise, and adding a catchy caption.

Maybe you’ve honed your writing in a field like marketing, PR, or advertising, but you want to earn more.

Maybe you simply want to make money from home.

If you want to get paid to write online, you are in the right place! I fit all four categories, and I want to help you as I’ve been helped.

What do you want to gain from work and from life?

Do you “work to live” or “live to work”?

For a long time, I “lived to work.” I found meaning and purpose in work itself.

I still do, but today I enjoy work and I see fruits from my work that will help me enjoy life more with my family and friends and pursue my personal goals:

  • Travel
  • Lifelong education and learning new skills, particularly languages
  • Surfing exotic locations (gotta have outdoor fun!)
  • Being my own boss

To get more out of life…to achieve my goals of being my own boss and being able to spend more time with family, I joined Wealthy Affiliate, so I could write about what I wanted and make money doing so. Now I want to help you do the same.


“Affiliate marketing”? What’s that?

I’m pursuing my goals through an affiliate marketing program called Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate is an income-generating online platform called affiliate marketing, which essentially allows me to write about WHATEVER I want to, advertise almost any product I want to, and get paid to do it.

Sound “too good to be true”?

Well, at face value, it is.

There is some hard work involved. There is an optional expense. But essentially, you can use Wealthy Affiliate to write about your passion and make money doing it through affiliate marketing. You can work 5 hours per week or 60 hours. The more you work, generally speaking, the more you’ll make.

NOTE: there are scam sites out there, and here’s an independent article on Wealthy Affiliate, its legit competitors, and those that are actually scams.

What Wealthy Affiliate offers and what it doesn’t

The independent marketing site, InvestBurundi, says this about Wealthy Affiliate:

“Wealthy Affiliate is a good choice because it helps businesses grow. Premium membership gives you access to features like website build up and training on how to get niches.

“These are platforms that if used positively will increase the online presence of your business which in turn increases customers.

“Building a business to great heights is not always an easy task, but with consistency and the right training from Wealthy Affiliate, it is easier.”

Before I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I looked around at my options.

Here is the rest of the review by on Wealthy Affiliate and other “affiliate marketing” programs.


Some of the advantages of Wealthy Affiliate are:

  • It’s the world’s leading affiliate marketing platform
  • FREE, or LOW-COST options:
    • FREE to join, OR
    • $19 for Premium (first month)
      • $49 for following months
    • Price break for yearly membership
  • A community of over 300,000 members at any one time helping one another succeed.
  • Top-notch training.


No “easy money.”

I’m not going to tell you it’s easy. It involved some hard work.

But it is simple. It is straightforward. And after 20 years of writing online, I’ve learned in eight weeks all I need to know to write effective online articles and get ranked on the first page of search results on Google, Bing and Yahoo. This is not easy, but Wealthy Affiliate helped me get there.

In 8 weeks.

How does it work? It’s straightforward…

Here’s the good part. The really good part.

You can write about ANYTHING.


You can write about women’s health, getting rich, sex and relationships, gadgets and electronics, spirituality, cars or beauty products… Literally anything. And you can also write about Wealthy Affiliate itself.

I have a site about small town travel and also this site about Wealthy Affiliate. Because Wealthy Affiliate has allowed me to be successful writing about what I want to — travel and food — I want to invite you into the community that has helped me actually helped me to make money writing online.

“What if I’m not ready?”

The good news about the Internet is that it’s here to stay. This opportunity is always available. So I’m not going to tell you that you have to do it today or you’ll lose the opportunity.

You won’t.

But I’ll ask you the same question I asked myself: why wait?

I’m not going to win the lottery!

I don’t mind hard work if I know that I can enjoy the fruit of it. I worked a salaried job for years, and while I’m grateful for it, I wanted the opportunity to have no ceiling to my income.

Today I have no limit!

Are you ready?

Only you can answer that.

There is a FREE version of Wealthy Affiliate that you can sign up for…no obligation, no strings, etc. Just to check it out.

I will encourage you with one thing: I was super skeptical when I first joined. In fact, I messaged the founder like three times before I paid for my Premium membership (which is only optional, remember), and he answered each time. I joined for free and 24 hours later, I became a Premium member at $19 for the first month.

I haven’t regretted a single penny over the last eight weeks. I’m starting to live my dream.

You can too!

  1. What an interesting article. Thank you for explaining affiliate marketing in an easy to understand definition. Also, your evaluation and discussion of Wealthy Affiliate is very detailed. It provides just enough information to pique someone’s interest.
    By listing your personal reasons for being an affiliate marketer, you remind me of why I came to this platform. I bet it will have other people thinking about why they would want to work from home and be their own boss. I assume also that since your website is, that you will help others to learn to do that. I am going to keep an eye out for more!

  2. Thank you Howard,
    I’ve been looking for a while of how to make money online so searched a bit deeper about how to do this writing and am pleased to find your review. I’ve thought about freelance writing, ghost writing and getting paid by the hour. Now you have given me an idea, to write for myself as a business on my own website.

    You’ve given me lots of ideas. I mean I didn’t think it was possible to write about small town travel. But that’s what you are dong and this website so that really gets me thinking that anything is possible – there are so many topics, hobbies and interests that I could choose.

    Thank you for the inspiration and sharing your journey.
