I have been brainstorming and researching and thinking and analyzing all the ideas i've had for ways to earn money independently, for many years now. In the past I have tried creating a few websites and blogs, but always lost interest, didn't have enough time (or maybe just didn't have enough interest to create the time? lol) I know I'm not cut out for anything that requires constant attention, or even attention on a regular basis, in order to be successful. I have researched all the ways to earn money online including arbitrage, affiliate marketing, and probably everything else under the sun. I think the only thing I would have the ability to stick with is writing e-books, or possibly normal length books, but with my short attention span and lack of perseverance, I think e-books would be my best bet. Besides, I LOVE to research information and collect it and organize it and share it. Even if I can't stick to something in the meantime, eventually I will have completed my information compiling and could release an e-book. Also, I like the idea of earning passive income from something that is FINISHED. No needing to come up with another blog post again or anything that requires maintenance. So e-books it is. Now, what would I write about? I am what is called a scanner, or renaissance person. That is someone who has MANY interests and hobbies, so many that they can't ever devote all or even most of their time to just one. I have counted somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-30 interests and hobbies. I usually spend an hour or two diving into each one, some more often than others, but I always bounce from one to another rather quickly. I usually go back to the same ones, sometimes adding new ones, but generally the pattern is the same, a few hours here, a few hours there, for all of them. I have tried picking just one and focusing on that, but if anyone out there is also a scanner, you know how impossible that is. It's like picking one of your children and keeping them and giving the rest up for adoption. So my business idea/goal/dream is to write e-books about all of these subjects. I could even combine some and write e-books on those combinations. The possibilities are endless with this many interests! And it seems do-able for someone like me because I could skip around from one subject to another anytime I get bored with one, save my work, and eventually all my e-books would get written. As for marketing, I have heard about email generators, only recently though, so part of this post is to ask for advice about those. Do they really work, which ones are the best, are there free ones, etc. I would create Facebook pages for each of my interests/e-books, gain a following, create a landing page for each e-book, and make FB posts about each subject (delivering content!). Is this a viable plan? Is there something I am missing? Anyone have any suggestions or feedback on this? I look forward to your replies!
