All of us know that changes are inevitable in life.
The problem is that changes usually occur at a time when we are least prepared, and the changes usually are for the worst.
Take for example our online earnings.
In many cases, just when we are very comfortable and happy with our income, something drastic happens, and we get a shock.
Many people experienced that with many newer sites.
They work very hard, and manage to reach one or two payouts.
After that, they cannot find the sites anymore. These sites close for good. They cannot get their accumulated earnings anymore.
Many people have similar experience in writing sites.
Just when they start to enjoy a regular flow of income, the search algorithm changes.
That means a drop in traffic, and a drastic drop in income.
Sometimes the writing sites take the drastic action of deleting writers’ accounts. The writers cannot login to delete their articles.
At times, the change is not so drastic.
They suffer deletion of a few articles.
Way back in 2006, writers who rely on article writing for online earnings were making very good money. That was the time when many writing sites paid big money for articles.
They could get upfront of ten dollars per article, and enjoyed passive income from the advertising revenue.
Everything looked very bright.
With the economic crisis in 2008, advertising revenue dropped, and many writing sites closed down.
Online earnings are unstable.
If you are relying on a certain site for the bulk of your online earnings, you have to prepare for the worst. Changes can take place overnight.
You can lose the source of your online earnings in a matter of days.
Nothing is certain in life. Nothing is certain in cyber world, except your ability and skill to make money online.
Online earnings are unstable, but your ability and skill stay with you for life.
