How to Earn Money at NASCAR Races (My FIRST Kindle Article!!!)
Amazon.Com ^ | February 10, 2012 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 02/11/2012 3:23:26 PM PST by PJ-Comix

A guide to how NASCAR fans can earn money while enjoying their sport. NASCAR venues offer easy ways to earn money which the author took advantage of for two full seasons and parts of several more. Detailed examples based on the author's own experiences are given on how fans can earn at least several hundred up to a couple of thousand dollars at each NASCAR race.

A bonus section is included that will reveal the "Ground Zero" for all wholesalers where the prices are rock bottom. Even if the reader has no interest in NASCAR this wholesale information can prove to be very valuable.

The best part of working at the NASCAR races is the fun and excitement. It's one big party so enjoy yourself AND earn lots of money at the same time!

My Amazon article is UP AND RUNNING!!! It was easy to do except I screwed up a bit on the format. The title and section section are left justified rather than centered. I reuploaded it in HTML format and the titles and section headings were centered but no paragraph spacing. I remembered from the article I read on how to do this that we should hit the return TWICE for spacing so I did it again and put it into an HTML zip file but when I previewed it looked terrible for some reason. Therefore I went back to just uploading the original doc. file again with the left justifications. It doesn't look perfect but it is passable. Plus I learned to hit the return TWICE (or more) for the spacing.

I did my writing in Google documents which is convenient because I can download from there as an HTML zip file. Main thing is that I got it done. It is fairly easy except for the spacing problem which I am pretty sure I won't have next time. And next time my article will be about the insider secrets about how I scored my FREE laptop computer via coupons as well as some other couponing secrets. I've kept these completely secret for the past couple of years and when I reveal them I think I will feel like Superman announcing to the world that he is Clark Kent.

Anyway, the mistakes were minor as to formatting and I should be able to get the next one completely correct. The basic thing is that the information is provided to the reader in I hope an entertaining manner. I was originally going to include accounts of some of the many eccentric people I met while working the NASCAR circuit but I think the reader is more interested in the meat of the matter...namely how they can earn money at the NASCAR races which is a real goldmine if you know how to work it.

FYI.

As you can see I had some formatting problems. It definitely looks like creating the file as an HTML zip file is the way to go but next time I need to remember to DOUBLE space. I originally uploaded as a doc. file and it looked good EXCEPT the headings were not centered. Then when I saved it as an HTML zip file and uploaded the sections were centered but not paragraph spacing. Then I double spaced my file and saved as an HTML zip file and reuploaded but that made it look even worse. I guess the secret is to first double space then save to HTML zip file for upload, right? Or am I missing something.

Anyway the article with its current spacing is readable.

I just got a Kindle Fire for Valentines. You need to write an article on making money by drinking beer.

BTW, you don’t actually need a Kindle reader to access the articles and books. Kindle software is available for FREE via the Web. Easy download.

Yeah, but I will be concentrating on Self Help books. My next one will be insider couponing secrets including how I scored my FREE computer with coupons a couple of years ago. This is stuff that I never even revealed in my Coupon Whisperer blog.

Also I am planning an article on how to overcome writers block. I used to suffer horribly from it and I developed techniques that work so well that, well, you can Google my name and see the thousands of articles I've written in the past few years. I never could have done that if I didn't learn to overcome Writers Block.

Super. I look forward to these articles.

But you know well that the best way to earn money in Nashville is not to play an instrument, but to sell guitar picks!

Or guitars. I once picked up a mint condition Gibson ES75 guitar at a police auction for just 80 bucks. By coincidence that same night I saw an old Elvis flick on the tube in which he was playing that exact same guitar. So a couple of days later I went to a music store with the guitar and asked for new strings for it since I decided to learn how to play it. However, the store owner flashed $400 in front of me for the Gibson so I grabbed the cash.

Maybe I should write an article called, "How to NOT Greedily Grab the First Offer Made to You for a Classic Guitar."

It was a tossup on whether I would write on this topic or a treatise on ancient Tibetan philosophy.

One fringe benefit of checking out the preview is that there is a link there to perhaps the GREATEST infomercial in history. And, no, it doesn’t star Billy Mays or Sham-Wow Vince.

Freepmail us the secrets.

Or is this like one of those how-to's, about how to make money placing tiny ads in newspapers, after which sending $5 the answer is "just place tiny ads in newspapers --- asking for five dollars"?

The way to make money in Nascar is to be a team owner.

Because 40% of the sponsor money comes right off the top for “management fees”

Well, my article is for the average NASCAR fan. I have a section in my article about how it is possible to earn while doing minimal work so as to enjoy the NASCAR experience. For me the most enjoyable part of the NASCAR experience was soaking the beer suds.

Ah, I see you are from Indiana. Indianapolis? I have a section in my article about how the town of Speedway is VERY vendor friendly. My favorite place to work. I was there for several Indy 500 races and Brickyard 400.

If you’re a tailgater then we might have met years ago. Remember a bearded guy bearing Viper style sunglasses for sale?

Viper sunglasses are from the 90s. Won’t help now. Plus I give detailed info for folks that don’t want to work the tailgaters.

How is the Kindle Fire for reading graphics? I would like to write Kindle articles chock full of graphics and photos.

I haven’t seen any graphics in a book yet, but today I will check some out for you. The thing I don’t like about the Fire is I get too distracted if I’m reading a book. The temptation to go on FR or to see what the newest headline on Drudge is something I didn’t have with my old Kindle.

Hey PJ - You might want to check out Vook if you decide to publish a MOBI/EPUB ebook. It's supposed to be better than Smashwords. I *think* they still have a free beta testing trial up. I signed up for it, but I haven't gotten around to using it yet. But, it looks promising! Good luck with your Dummies book!

I have two Kindle Touch’s and I just picked up a Samsung Galaxy S II last week, I immediately downloaded the Amazon Android app for Kindle on it and the 100 plus books I have on the Cloud Archive is now available on the Galaxy.

Just keep in mind the page as how it would look on a smartphone as although I do carry my Kindle with me in my coat the Galaxy is in my front pocket and I can read any Kindle book on that Galaxy even in the dark as its fully lit up like a Nook.

The graphics are great on the Fire and I find it easier to navigate back to a picture or map for further reference.

WOO! HOO! I figured out how to do the centering. What I did wrong was to type up my material in Google.docs. Then I copy and pasted into Open Office where I converted it to a .doc file and then uploaded to Kindle. That was my mistake. Somehow the centering got lost in the copying process. When I wrote up a test article DIRECTLY into Open Office everything work fine when I converted it to a .doc file and uploaded to Kindle.

Now my only problem is how to make articles available for FREE in Kindle. I tried to set the price of the test article at $0.00 but Kindle wouldn't allow me to do that and yet I do see a lot of books and articles at Kindle available for free. Does anybody know how to set the price at free?
