This is true not just in terms of information access but also in earning livelihoods. And what better example of that than being able to share one’s thoughts and being able to make money from it. However, we are not talking about running blogs or other such ventures. In fact, we are talking about the noblest of professions; being a book writer. With E-books becoming an overwhelmingly real phenomenon, a lot of people are putting their ideas into motion, writing their thoughts and publishing them on a multitude of forums.

Among these is the ever-popular book store known as Amazon. The days of when you needed to get your work read and approved by a publisher are long gone. Nowadays, you can publish anything you want as a book and sell it online. Amazon is home to millions of potential customers and if you think you have what it takes to attract an audience, we will help you figure out how you can earn money by publishing E-books for Kindle on Amazon.

The basic concept

When it comes to publishing your work for Amazon’s Kindle, things could not have been any easier. The steps involved are minimal and there are no complications in the process whatsoever. You do not need to pay to register, there are no long waits and reviews, and you do not need any endorsements to become visible. Amazon does not charge any upfront or subsequent costs from you either. The only payment they get is a percentage from each time your book is sold. Everything else is yours to keep! So the question that really remains is what you need to do to start earning?

Write on a sellable idea

You may be a great writer but your topic is something that people don’t want to read then it would be useless to write about it. Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and write in a way that attracts maximum audience. Do research on the most-read about topics on the internet and see what you can write on effectively. Your choice should primarily target audience that uses kindle for reading. A lot of information can be found online for that specific niche and you can use that to finalize a topic. Once you have done that, it is time to start writing on it and creating something unique and sellable.

The following are opportunities which pretty much just require you to  sign up and start earning .

After doing a lot of research into crypto currency and even  setting up an Etherium mining rig I have finally bitten the bullet and purchased a small amount of Etherium.   The path I followed to get to this point was a bit  of a winding road but I got there in the end.  

At this point in time I have made nearly 10% ROI in a day so I'm feeling OK .. Hopefully things keep going this way !

One of my favorite quotes in the world comes  from  Calvin Coolidge

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. "

This is up on the wall in front of me in my office and serves as a constant reminder.

After searching at length  for a Joomla component that automatically adds  links and tooltips to keywords  in articles I couldn't find anything that suited my needs so I decided to develop the extension myself and learn a new skill  at the same time.

Over the last couple of weeks I have focussed on building content in livetocook.com and getting this content to display in search engines. This is not a quick process but I am starting to see some good results with traffic steadily building from essentially nothing to a couple of hundred page views a day. 

The basic approach I am taking is to write a blog article for everything I cook on a day to day basis and optimise these articles so that they attract traffic for the most popular keyword searches relating to the recipe I am cooking.  To help me achieve this I've started to use the keyword research tools at Jaaxy.com to save me a heap of time working out what people are searching for and how much competition I am up against for the keywords/phrases they are searching for.

I've been busy over the last few days bringing www.livetocook.com  back to life. 

Cooking is my passion so I have been making my favourite foods and adding the recipes for these dishes to my website along with photographs of the results which were also added to flickr.
