One of the things that I love about article marketing is that I can just leave my computer on, with a Microsoft Word document open and if lightning strikes, I can stop for a minute at my computer and jot down a couple of notes for later. Now you could just as easily do this with a note pad, it is definitely a matter of personal preference. The point is, don't let those moments of inspiration go unrecorded.
Here is the problem. You are home all day taking care of your children, but prior to this; you have always worked, and felt good about your financial contribution or just having your own money. It doesn't have to be much, but you just want to contribute something financially to the home or have a little spending money that you don't have to account for. Yes, you are completely covered up with all the demands of raising your children. Yes, you know this is the right choice to stay home with your children. But!
You want to have something of your own. You want to feel the satisfaction that even with all this; you are doing something that brings money into the home. You may not even completely understand it yourself. You just know that when you get these little breaks here and there, when you get to sit down in front of the computer, that there has to be a way that you can make some money. I mean, heck, there is only 7 billion ads on the Internet screaming that it's possible right.
I know you have tried a couple of things. The problem is that you can't schedule appointments. You just never know when the next crisis is going to begin: when one of the children is going to require your undivided attention. Heck, you can't even be sure, that when you do have a free moment, that you will have the energy to talk, much less conduct an appointment.
That is what is so great about article marketing. You contribute the time when you have it. No effort is ever wasted as long as you write it down. There are no deadlines, and everything you do will build on your previous work. And it doesn't cost anything to start. Here is an example.
An idea crossed your mind in the middle of making PB and J's. You walk over to the computer, lick off your finger, and write one or two sentences with no punctuation and then walk away. Two hours and 38 minutes later, all of the kids have finally fallen asleep. You sit down at the computer and you punctuate your sentence and you start to expand on the idea. You look up a couple of websites that you had seen earlier in the week, and refresh your thinking on your idea and you actually get 3 paragraphs written. You hear the baby crying, you are off.
Next time you sit at the computer is two days later. The website and the article you started are still up, and you have to read it all again to get your brain started. About 10 minutes after that you are typing away, and 30 minutes after that you have added two more paragraphs and you now have 378 words. That is an article. You get up and go get a drink, come back and do your final proof read, submit it to your favorite directory. By the next morning, it is published, and you have had 13 people read it, and one of them went to visit your blog.
