With the earning potential InfoBarrel has, it’s no wonder that so many are turning to InfoBarrel as a source of income. Some writers on InfoBarrel have already begun to earn upwards of $1,000 a month. Of course, earning $1,000 a month in residual income from articles is no easy feat, but is it a reachable goal. The largest obstical is finding the time to write the articles necessary to achieve your monthly income. Below are some suggestions on how to find time.

Keep a Schedule.
If you don’t already, keep a calendar somewhere of all of your daily tasks, appointments, meetings, etc. This will give you a good idea of your available free time to write articles.

Time Yourself.
How long does it take you to write an article that is 400 words? How about 1,000 words? It will be helpful to know the answers to these questions. Keep in mind the research it may take you to write your articles in order to keep them current, and knowledgable.

Figure Out What You Do In Your Free Time.
Do you spend most of your time watching TV or playing online games? Or, do you spend most of your time cleaning in your free time? Some things (like cleaning and laundry) need to get done, while some are big time wasters and goal prohibitors.

Determine How Many Hours A Day You Are Willing to Write
Can you find one hour a day to write? Possibly two? Maybe you can watch TV via Tivo, and use your free time to focus on writing a certain number of articles every day. Think about how quickly you want to produce articles for InfoBarrel. Does it take you 20 minutes to write an article, and you only can find 10 minutes a day? That’s one article every other day. Ask yourself, “Is that what I really want?”

Set Goals.
Set daily attainable goals for time to write articles. Do you want to write three articles in one hour? Make that your goal, and stick to it for a week to see how it goes. If it works, keep going, but if you want articles faster, perhaps you can find some extra time such as during a work commute (if you ride the bus) or early in the morning to write. At the same time, don’t create a goal that causes burnout. Writing ten articles a day sounds fantastic, as you would then have 70 articles in one week. But is this an attainable goal? Is this a goal that would allow you to write quality articles and not suffer from burn out?

Finding time to write is the most important aspect to being successful on InfoBarrel. Without setting a daily time to write, you are setting yourself up for failure and frustration. By setting daily goals, after a while, your articles will almost feel automatic, and your writing will improve over time.
