A while ago Ken Crawford (where are you Ken?) used a phrase that I liked. He said once you find something that works, ride it until the wheels fall off. Well, that’s sort of what I’m doing with Demand Studios. The Honeymoon is Over Before it began my honeymoon ended. Of the few articles I […]

In my hiatus from writing for money I was able to see which sites have been truly passive. Currently, Suite 101 and Demand Studios revenue share fall under the truly passive category for me. I haven’t written an article for Suite since May 4, 2011 and my last revenue share for DMS was written on […]

Demand Media Studios is making a few changes. I’m not quite sure how things will pan out but until the segmentation changes are fully explained, DMS writers are feeling a bit uneasy.

New DMS Format

I know that Demand Media Studios gets bashed around a lot on line. Despite the fact it is one of the few places online that consistently pays (and twice a week at that) it does get negative press. I’m guilty of bashing them a time or two (well not really bashing DMS, just airing frustrations […]

I’ve said it before, and I guess I’m not a quick learner, so I’ve got to say it again (more for my own benefit). I’m losing money by writing for Demand Studios. Here’s the Scoop As you know, I’ve been working on joining the Double O club this month. Because my residual income is below […]
