Why I'm writing on Wizzley
I'm writing new articles on Wizzley to help diversify my online income sources, creating a new stream of passive income. I also want to connect with other entrepreneuers online!
Welcome to My First Wizzley Page
I haven't really decided what to write about here on Wizzley, so I though I'd start out by introducing myself and writing about why I'm here on Wizzley in the first place! Hopefully, this will be read by many new writers who stumble upon Wizzley and wonder themselves why they should write on Wizzley.
First of all, Hi my name is Kim. I'm a work at home mom who lives in Arizona, although I'm a transplant from the midwest, growing up most of my life in Nebraska (go Huskers!). I have three children, ranging in age from 1-15. Between taking care of 2 preschoolers during the day, and shuttling around my teenager to all his activities in the afternoons and evenings, I also do online website marketing for a local swimming pool company here in Arizona. I'm their marketing manager, and basically in charge of getting them all their new customers.
Beyond that, I love to look for ways to supplement our family income. Although my husband works a regular job, his pay is never the same from paycheck to paycheck, so any money I can earn online from home helps us to pay bills if his paycheck isn't as much as expected. We also use any money I earn online to save for retirement and stash some money for our kids' college funds.
But more importantly, I'm trying to plant seeds. What do I mean by that? I'll use an analogy of farming (remember, I grew up in Nebraska). A farmer diligently works for weeks preparing the soil, then planting the crop seeds, fertilizing, and praying for rain. Weeks go by without any sign that anything has been accomplished. But the farmer DID the work. Then one day, a plant emerges from the soil, and continues to grow. The farmer continues to tend to the crop, and at harvest time, when the crops are ripe, the harvest is bountiful, supplying his family income for the next year. For me, writing articles is a way to plant seeds! If I never write an article, I can't sit back and enjoy the harvest. Will the growing season take time? YES. But if I don't start writing, and planting seeds, I won't have any crops worth any money! Each article I write is one seed. I need a field of crops!
In addition to the online income aspect of Wizzley, I want to meet new people and socialize online with others here on Wizzley. I think we all have value and insight to contribute to one another, and we can all learn something from others, appreciate and repsect one another, both in our similarities and our differences.
Writing Articles is like planting seeds
