A Pram Finder Can Save You Loads of Time and Money – Find a Safe Pram For Baby

After buying and selling 21 different prams, obviously for different reasons, I decided that ‘enough was enough’ and I was only going to have 2 prams in the house. (From time to time there have been up to 5 prams here at once – driving my better half almost crazy!)

The first pram was a 3 wheel jogger, but I didn’t realise being my first baby (& pram) that it wouldn’t take too long for my son to reach the 17kg weight capacity. I just thought it looked nice & seemed to drive well in the shop.

The second was an umbrella stroller that I bought so we could go on a plane & not be taking the big 3 wheeler on board. That one never steered straight – I really should have tested that out with my son in it. It seemed to have all the features I wanted, but spent at least 3 months back in the factory over it’s lifespan to try to get it to travel in a straight line.

The 3rd was a tandem (one seat in front of the other) and I probably would have kept that if my oldest had have stopped turning around and throwing things collected from supermarket shelves onto his new baby brother, because he thought it was funny to see the shocked reaction when said baby brother was fast asleep & being scared half to death!

Now, I could continue to bore you to tears about my 6 year pram finder career that has seen me spending more money than I can account for and using some less than safe prams for my poor little babies. But I won’t – LOL! I don’t know how much time I have spent surfing the internet reading pram reviews, or writing pram reviews of my own for that matter, but I do know I would have been far more productive had I been doing the housework.

I am pleased to tell you though that now I actually do have just 2 prams – a single and a double.

And I’m keeping them!

Writing Articles for Money – Write Fast, Write Well and Sell

The web has a huge appetite for content. This means that thousands of people are making money writing articles from home. Some are scratching a living, but others are making a great income. This is a viable business if you can write quality articles, and can write them quickly.

I’ve been writing articles for websites for 15 years, and nowadays focus on creating content for my own sites, which I monetize in various ways.

Over the years, I’ve seen many writers making unnecessary mistakes. Here’s how you can avoid them, so that you can create a successful business.

1. Treat Article Writing Like a Business, Because It Is

This is a business. This means that you need to have inventory (content to sell), you need to have a place of business (a website or blog), and you also need to make sales. The more professional you are, and the more you treat your writing like a business, the more your income will rise.

Don’t stop writing while you’re trying to make sales. I’ve seen many writers who write 10 or 20 articles, and then stop. They want to make sales. That’s fine, but your initial sale may take several weeks, depending on how effective you are at promotions.

If you keep writing, once you start selling, you’ll have 400 articles to sell, rather than 20.

In this particular business, you’re creating product, you’re promoting it, and you’re selling it. Those are the fundamentals: stick to them, and you’ll do well.

2. Quality Content Is Valuable, So Don’t Give It Away

There’s a huge range of fees which are paid for this type of web content. At the lower end, writers are making $5 or $10 per article. At the higher end, writers make a dollar or more per WORD.

Over the past year, I’ve seen many of my writing students start off selling articles at low rates, and gradually establish themselves until they’re making very high rates. At that stage, they have a list of clients who regularly buy articles from them. They don’t need to advertise, they have more work than they can handle.

3. Got a Portfolio? Your Portfolio Sells

Do you have a blog? I encourage my students to create a blog, because it’s the simplest way to create a portfolio of work. Every post on the blog showcases your talents. Blogging is an extremely low-cost form of advertising, and it works.

The big benefit of developing a blog to showcase your portfolio is that it builds your credibility online. Within a month or two, clients will start to find you via your blog, and will hire you.

The gold rush for online content doesn’t show any signs of slowing down soon. Therefore, if you want to develop a great home business, try writing articles for money.
