"Daddy, why do you write all those artices and then send them away?"
I answered my 11 year old son by telling him that I did it for more prospects, publicity and profits.
"What's that? I don't get it."
I went on to explain that when I write articles and send them in to EzineArticles.com and/or have them in my own newsletters and websites that people read them and then come to my websites and become subscribers, buy my information, and then tell others about me.
And then came the part that made it all clear for him. I further explained that when people buy my information the money goes to our bank and then I am able to buy him more Star Wars action figures.
"Daddy, please keep writing articles!" I think he got it.

I had made up the idea less than 10 days earlier.
