Turn Writing Every Day into a Business
Rebecca Matter here — encouraging you to start the habit of writing every day.
How are you doing so far?
If you haven’t started yet, there’s never been a better time than today. It’s a habit I’ve wanted to pick up for a while now, because it’s the one consistent tip I hear from the most successful writers.
And along with helping you become a better writer, it will also make you a more efficient writer — which in the end makes you a more profitable writer.
See why it’s a habit I want both of us to pick up?
But there are other things you can do with this habit, including making money and turning it into a business.
One way, of course, is by writing an information website about a topic you’re passionate about. (We also call them Money-Making Websites at AWAI.)
If you’re not familiar, these are websites that contain content related to a particular topic.
For instance, if you’re into cooking gluten-free food, you may choose to write a site dedicated to recipes and cooking tips for others interested in cooking foods without gluten.
You could also write about green tea, furniture restoration, extreme sports, growing organic vegetables, scrapbooking, digital photography, knitting, traveling in Africa, dog training … really anything you’re passionate about.
Along with always having something to write about every single day, you’ll be building an asset with each page you write.
[By the way, if this is something you want to do, you should check out Nick’s program, How to Write Your Own Money-Making Websites. Until tomorrow, you can get in on his live 7-week training program where he’ll walk you through putting up your own site step-by-step, plus you’ll save $150.]
The other thing you can do with your new writing habit is to turn it into a business.
I remember reading this article by Mark Ford (aka Michael Masterson) when we published it back in 2007 and thinking — wow, what a really cool idea. And now I’m thinking I may give it a shot.

And let me know what you think in the comments!
And then tomorrow, check back in with me so we can make a plan for continuing to keep each other accountable on our new writing habit throughout the rest of the year.
