Writing for Bukisa,One year anniversary

If you haven’t heard of Bukisa as a writing site,it’s probably because it’s not taken very seriously as a source of income. The site pays on a monthly $/1000 which changes,based on the previous month’s earnings for the entire site. Consequently,crappy articles are paid at the same rate as good articles,and [...]

Design Your Writing Career

Everyone in my “real life”doesn’t know what I do for a living. It’s not that I’m secretive,it’s just that people assume a homeschooling mom of six is plenty busy enough,right? In fact,about 6 months into this business,when I was working several hours a day to build up my body of [...]

Break Studios Review

OK,so I’ve been writing for Break Studios for almost 2 weeks now. I promised I’d write up a review once I had them figured out. They’re really laid back,compared to Demand Studios. The titles are also really different. the pay is also significantly lower.

So far,it’s balancing out,though. I’m able to [...]

I got a message from a facebook friend,asking me if I knew anything about Hubpages. here’s my lazy-@$$ pasted answer:

I have an account there but I haven’t written anything yet. It’s very similar to Squidoo in the way it’s laid out. I have an account at Squidoo,too. Both of those sites have [...]
