But out of the clear blue, had a Dr's office webmaster email me and request a 1000 word article on plastic surgery. Told me to send a quote. Told him $75 and sent it via PP, was paid in 10 mins. Sent the artcile over the weekend and they loved it. Works to $.07/word or so and hopefully a future client if they want more.
Just showing that a little luck and some hard work pays off. Not expecting to land those types of articles all the time, but its a start.
