It is a shame to spend all this time, money, and work going school only to throw the papers you have written away. Why not take a few minutes to publish the papers you have worked so hard on?
You may not be able to fund your schooling through the articles you publish, but it may outperform the income you are earning from your savings account. Who knows, over the course of your lifetime, it may even offset the interest from college loans.
It probably isn’t a good idea to publish your papers prior to getting a grade back. This could cause some problems if your teacher finds an identical copy of your paper online. There may be other papers that you just don’t feel comfortable publishing. I would also recommend checking with your school counselors to see if they feel this behavior would in any way be a conflict of interest. If they don’t have a problem with it, then why not?
While I was in school, I found myself constantly giving other students similar computer advice. After walking several people through different tools available to them online, I finally wrote a few tutorials and published them online.
Now when I find someone struggling with a computer problem that I have a tutorial for, I simply send them a link to my article. I can help a friend out, and earn a passive income from my knowledge at the same time.
Take a look at some of my other articles, and let me know what you think:
