    Please don't consider this another "How do I make money online" question

    Background:Howdy :) So im trying bring home an extra $1000 Dollars a month on my online earnings. Im currently doing some CPA stuff and that is working well for me. Im having trouble scaling up, and im doing less and less with it. Im trying to "diversify" my online income. Now, i figure if I want to make an extra 1k a month I will basically need to bring home 33$ per day. Also, im not doing this goal alone, my girlfriend is also helping me out. So basically I can convert the workload in 1/2 to reach that goal.

    The Plan: So since my girlfriend wants to help, I have been researching different money making ideas. The one that just pops out as the "easiest" , would be article writing. Theres so many different sites that will pay you for content (ie, textbroker) and many different websites like microworkers and such that have people looking for content as well. This seems to be the easiest option for now.

    What I need help on: So I am fairly new to the article writing scene. I think i wrote maybe 3 or 4 articles years ago for AC, but nothing major. I just have a few questions.

    HOW DO YOU WRITE AN ARTICLE?! LoL

    Seriously tho, what are they looking for exactly? Im kinda lost there. The topics are generally kinda vague, and im just lik huh?
    For instance, i just got accepted to text broker. And there was an article that needed to be written about "Playing Online Bingo" . The only instructions there were to make sure you use the keywords "Bingo" and "Play online bingo" . Ok, so yah I understand what the article is for, someone is obviously wanting to generate traffic to a bingo site or blog or whatever, but.. what would you write that on?

    Ive already submitted the article i have written, waiting to see if they accept it. but like, all i really did was write about What online bingo is, that lots of people are doing it, its really fun to socialize with the other players in these virtual rooms, and that you can play for free or play for money , yadda yadda.

    Is that it? i mean, i understand that there not looking for award winning articles, but , i wanna make sure i can do this! Im fairly smart, i know for the most part when to punctuate and start a new paragraph, but other than that am i doing it right? (side note: lol i know theres probably tons of spelling errors and punctiation errors in this post, but thats cuz this is informal)

    So anyways, Im not asking for someone to do my work for me, but if someone would be so kinda as to show me an example of a good article. Im not gonna steal your content and use it for my own, id just love to see how you took a keyword topic and wrote an article and how you structured it.

    Anywho, id appreciate it, or any other advise given. Thanks

    :)

    The thing about article writting is that you need to become a "mini-expert" in your field.
    For the most part you have to be fairly knowledgable of what your writing about.

    How do you become an min-expert on each and every niche you write about?

    Easy. It takes all of 5 minutes... You read.

    1) Go to any article site, ezarticles (for instance) is the mother of article sites and find
    an article under the niche you need to write on.

    2) Read the article line by line or paragraph by paragraph and either rewrite each sentence,
    or rewrite each paragragh in your own words.



    The best part is....


    You will be amazed out how quickly you get better at writing your "own" material after you
    have a little experience using this method. Thoughts will come to mind on different directions
    to take the article, using your own past expeiences and your own ideas.

    Soon you will be re-writing paragraghs in your own words, then you will be able to read a
    whole article and come up with your own unique thoughts and completely unique articles.
    All 100% Authored by you.
