How The Info Barrel Family Helped Me Make My First Penny

      Have you ever heard the saying, "Where there is a spark a flame will follow?"  If you have, do you know what it means?  Well if you haven't come on over to Info Barrel and you will have a clear understanding of it. Info Barrel is changing my life, one article at a time.   My tenure here has been less than two weeks and with the help of this incredible group of people I made my first $.01 today.  I know many will not understand the significance of this penny.  But for those on Info Barrel that can remember their first time, they know what that first penny stands for.  For me it means “Keep Going.”  

     When I initially came to this site, I had never done any real writing online.  I published my first article and got excited about being able to share ideas with others.  My goal was to share with others the things that I've learned in my life.  I worked my way around this site and read as much as I could about how to come up with article ideas, back links and keyword research.  The amount of information was almost overwhelming because each writer went to great efforts to make sure that the articles were easy to understand.  Although, I was enthusiastic about the possibility of making passive income I still didn't believe it possible.

    After I published my first article, I eagerly awaited approval from the staff.  After my approval, I continued to write more articles.  Any questions I had were quickly answered in the forums by other Info Barrel writers.  Everybody here was playing a part in helping me to be successful.  There was ASKFORMORE who provided me with my very first comment.  Then, DREAMMAKER and many others that gave me advice on providing back links to my articles.  VICDILLINGER, who told me that my avatar was “killer” and the numerous others that welcomed me here and told me I would love it.  Most importantly, everyone continued to support me by reading my articles and letting me know that I was well on my way.

      I would like to extend an offer to anyone looking for a great place to write and wonderful people to write with.  Come to Info Barrel, the article writing site where people care.   I would love to have you as a referral.  Just sign up today and start writing.  I know to many people, a penny is nothing but the power behind the penny for me is priceless.  Consider the spark officially a burning flame.  Thanks Info Barrel.

What a great experience you've had with IB, and the great thing is that you're not the only one. A majority of InfoBarrel members, including me, love this site. Good article.

As long as you do good work and write well, you'll have my respect certainly. If you're a grinder, I don't have time for you, but the newer people such as yourself, crazygata, Etcetera, who show major promise are worth my attnetions and support (and you should friend both of those women if you have not already, you will find two incredibly talented new writers in them and they don't care a fig). Oh, and poor Introspective has the dubiuos distinctino of having received my first comment on the site for something excellent she wrote -- she is one of the better "old timers".

Woot! I just signed up under you!

Good Luck suivi! I'm new here and having so much fun. The research that I do for my articles are expanding my knowledge base so much. I cannot thank the other writers enough for allowing me to stumble upon this great site.

@tkmcdonald how about an update? I too have made my first penny (two actually!) and was wondering how much you are making now, about 3 weeks after this post. Thanks!

Hello Jisawesome,
Thanks for the post! I am going to wait until the end of the month to post my update so that I can see what a whole month looks like so far. Tune in for my update and I appreciate your support. I look forward to your update as well.

I just made my first .02. Inspiring to see anything come in. Thought of this article when it did too! Just wish I had more time to get all the writing done. So many ideas, so little time!

I just made my first .01 and yes, it seems that infobarrel is a good place to write articles (forum full of people with positive attitude, fast and yet serious approval of articles, ...). Quite curious about what will come next (was it just a one-time .01 or will they keep coming, ...).

adragast....Keep writing and the money will come. At the end of the month when we all give an update hopefully everyone will have a few more pennies to talk about. Keep the faith. Let JC and all the others inspire you to keep going.

@aberdelle< I work full time and write whenever I can. What works for me is to set a little goal and just keep to that. I look forward to making my dreams of passive income come true here at infobarrel.

Great article! Congrats on your first penny. Where do you see how much you have made from a single article? I too have only been here a couple of weeks and am still learning the in's and out's.

Check the forum and someone should already have answered that question. All of my information goes under my entire account so I can only see that information. I go to google analytics to see what key words are used to find my articles and what sites they are coming from when they search or are referred.

Congrats on your first penny! Yes, we all understand the significance. Pennies turn into quarters, which turn into dollars if you just keep writing.

Mommymommymommy, I will continue to write because my dream is to be able to make my living writing online. I am working hard to make that dream come true. Thanks for the additional encouragement.

Conratulations on making some coin. Bet it's a good feeling!

It really is a good feeling!!!

Wow! This article and all these comments are very encouraging! I have started just a week ago and plan to put in many hours and dedication going forward! :-) Cheers to all the good work here :-)

Thanks for the info. Great article! I loved it.

Thanks for the comment. Finding InfoBarrel was the best thing that ever happened to me. It allowed me to launch a writing business and leave my 9 to 5. I had no idea what was possible. That penny has truly changed my life.
