A New Website Name... A New Beginning...

As you may have noticed, this blog has gone through a substantial change. It is now called Residual Internet Income and will no longer be focused on just eHow. I, like many other eHow members, have diversified my "Residual Income" portfolio and this blog is going to reflect that.

Thank you to all those people who have supported me on my journey to earning consistent residual income. It has and will be a fun ride!

You're Hired! (Update to "The End is Near... Maybe..." Post)

Well after having a substantially large scare, my application was approved and I am now an official Demand Studios writer!

So what does this mean for me? Well, only time will tell but I do know one thing... I have not lost a source of residual income and I have GAINED a source of fixed income.

Although I plan on writing articles that earn income residually, Demand Studios has several different writing jobs which writers are paid per publish.

Well... Now I need to get back to writing... and earning...

I hope all is well with my fellow eHow'ers... Have a great day!
