Queen Victoria and the First British Diamond Jubilee

There it is!  My 50th Wizzley article! 

I'm knackered but happy dancing like a mad thing right now.  I've been aiming for 50, as that is a good starting milestone. Write well, write often, was the advice that I read when I arrived here.

I joined up on December 16th 2011 and I had a few days off at New Year.  Other than that, I've posted at least one article daily.  I could see my goal in sight, so I wrote six in just the last two days.

And now I've done it.  *collapses* 

I'll wait until I've slept to see what my next challenge to myself will be. :D

One a day average article writing. Nice accomplishment. So many folk struggle to write one a week. The more output the better it gets.

Congrats Jo, you deserve every return on your investment here for all your hard work.

You are all making my head swell with so much pride here.  Thank you!  <3

I've already been seeing a slight upsurge this past week. My Amazon hits are still in low double figures, but that's better than the single ones. My Chitika suddenly went from 5p to 17p to 56p in the space of about a fortnight.

Early days.  Early days.

Jase, your reassurance is always very welcome!

Excellent stuff Jo. A lot of people don't get that if you want to make money by writing online, you have to actually put in the work. 

You seem to have that part figured out Smile

Thanks, Terri.  That's about the only part that I feel 100% confident that I've learned!

I've also gleaned that it's best to see how the masters/mistresses of success do things. I was actually lurking around your profile yesterday, seeing how you do sales pages. Mine are usually way too geared towards telling a story, rather than actually making any money. -.-

After scrutinising some of your articles, I came up with this:

Gifts and Momentos to Mark a Diamond Jubilee

Based on how you do things.

Not bad for a beginner or a big, red pen 'See Me'?  LOL

It's looking good Jo. I used to write a lot more background stuff, but then I realized that if you want people to buy you have to focus on the products.

I definitely think it helps to weave plenty of personal story or narrative in there too.  Just spread it throughout the article, which is exactly what you've done. 

The style I use should work well for you because I rely on lots of words being in my copy rather than a small number of keyword phrases. And you can write!
