My original title for this post was "How To Milk One Subject For All It's Worth and Get Paid Twice" but I didn't think it would fit in the header box.
Once I got the hang of how to sell essays by using a current topic/trend as a jumping off point, I kicked it up a notch (thanks to the advice of some more seasoned writers than I) and learned you can get two distinct essays from that said topic. I thought I'd pass on the learning.
