Well hello again after quite a while! Even though it's been over a year since I last wrote to this Blog, I thought I would drop in and let anyone who is paying attention know what's been going on in my Online writing career.
As many know, eHow went belly up for us writers quite some time ago. I personally was quite sad about this. Not because I loved eHow very much, but I really miss the regular money I was recieving from them, even if it was only $20 bucks a month or so.
I had to sell them my articles. It was really hard to give them up, too, but I didn't feel I had a choice in the matter. Either keep the rights and have all of my well searched and ranked articles removed from the site, or sell them off to ehow for a flat fee? Needless to say, I took the $75.00 they offered at the beginning of the Summer and ran with it. There was no point in retaining rights to articles that I couln't republish anywhere. It was sad.
So what now?
Well, I found a new site and I returned to an old one! I felt the need to start praticing my writing again, becaue the Hubby and I are interested in starting a Network Marketing business and I want to blog and write about it, but it's really back to the drawing board after all this time away. There are soooo many sites out there and soooo many people trying to do this for a living that I went back to basics.
The site I returned to was and old fave. http://www.mylot.com/?ref=ljbinkop MyLot.com has been pretty good to me. Click on the link above to join (tee hee). I started posting there again this week and have a little earnings to show for my effort, but the writing practice is very nice.
On MyLot, I found a link to another site. Postloop.com, http://www.postloop.com/invite/ljbinkop, is a nice treat for writers out there. I have not totally completed their rather severe application process, but I did do my first 10 posts, hopefully according to their strict guidlines. I see why they have the rules, though. I have been though so many sites and see so much terrible writing and TONS of spammers just trying to get people to be their referrals and such. I think this compnay might have it right (or write...) so I'll just play the waiting game and keep myself and anyone paying attention up to date!
Feel free to comment! It's always nice to know someone is paying attention!
