More eHow Articles on Bukisa: How to Tell if Fruits are Ripe

One topic that I used to write about a lot on eHow were articles on whether fruits were ripe.  I guess this was one of my "niches."  It started simply enough.  One day, my boyfriend, who had recently purchased a mango asked me how to tell if a mango is ripe.  Neither of us knew and I figured if neither of us knew, there were probably plenty of people on the internet who had the same question.  So I did some research on how to tell if a mango is ripe and wrote an eHow article about it.  Very quickly it became one of my highest paying articles.  That's one of the tricks to getting paid to write, write about things people want to know.  You can have as many backlinks and sources driving traffic to your articles as possible but if no one cares about what you're writing about, no one's going to read your articles.

After I found success with my "How to Tell if a Mango is Ripe" article, I wrote several other articles about how to tell if fruits are ripe.  I have chosen to migrate these articles to Bukisa because Bukisa has their own "how to" format and I didn't think the articles were meaty enough to turn into Infobarrel articles. Also, as a way to create backlinks and also have a separate paying source, I created a Squidoo lens "How to Tell If Fruits Are Ripe" and linked to all of my Bukisa articles.  This will be useful to people who want an ultimate guide to whether different types of fruits are ripe and will send them to by Bukisa articles.
