I have noticed that if you are not active on the site your earnings may go down a little bit. Some people do not think so, but in my recent tracking it been true.
I did not go onto the site at all yesterday, so I feel that hurt my earnings. Even though it did, I made $3.40 without doing anything.
Even though my earnings are not great, I feel accomplished. When I began writing for Ehow, I did not expect much. I honestly believe that the site has great potential. If I continue to work hard my earnings will continue to grow.
