On average, how many articles are you writing each month to earn some extra cash? How do you think of your topics for writing your articles. Do you go to message boards to find those topics? Or do you sit down and think about different topics and then think about how many different things you can write about on that one topic?

I belong to different sites, not only in writing articles and reviews, so its not easy to me to write plenty of articles. Anaverage of 10 - 15 articles or reviews per month.That is already from three reviews that I belong. I am just upset and disappointed that one of the best review sites blocked my account. They said that I did some spamming in the site. I have earned a big amount in the site, around $120 just in two months. I sent them an e mail and waiting for their response. I will focus here for the meantime. This site gives me a better income. I will be receiving my first pay out in the site.

I write within a specific niche and I have clients who order articles on that topic from me directly. I tend to write perhaps 8-10 of these each week. The keywords are supplied for me, so I find it easy to write what they want. The clients pay me directly once the articles are complete. Easy.

Sometimes I just get an idea from something I've done, my life, or something I happen to glance at that gives me an idea. These are usually opinion articles or how to articles, but otherwise is likely a fiction story. For other articles, I look up information. I usually just write about what I want, unless something I see somewhere inspires me. Most of the time I don't brainstorm either, I just write and most of the time don't need to revise articles. Brainstorming is usually reserved for me for something I have to write about instead of something I choose to write about.
