Looking at Things Differently

In the good ol’ days (pre-panda and pre-WCP closure), I used to write articles based on what I was doing. When I was reformatting my computer and ran into a problem, I’d find the solution and write an article about it. When I figured out how and when to transplant a hydrangea bush, I’d write […]

In the back of our minds we knew it would happen eventually. We always wondered when eHow would no longer offer payouts for the user-generated articles written under the WCP. We no longer have to worry or wonder. That day has come. eHow has made an offer to purchase the existing articles currently appearing on […]

I had to interrupt my 4-year online writing recap to inject this minor vent and wake up call. For those of you who watched the TV show Seinfield, you know what I’m talking bout when I say “Serenity Now.”  For those of you who are not familiar with the show, here’s a clip of what […]

I finally tried it. Over the last two weeks I wrote two WCAs (Writer Created Assignment) for Demand Studios. After reviewing my eHow earnings and comparing them to my other writing venues, I figured that I should at least give it a try. Edits and Modifications As a general rule, once my article is accepted, […]

Life after eHow

Life after eHow

I often get e-mails asking how life has been after eHow. My only regret with eHow shutting down its writing program as it did is that I was in the middle of yet another experiment which came to a screeching halt. So rather than perform my experiment on the eHow website, I’ve decided to look […]

The eHow upheaval is causing a feeding frenzy. Just imagine how happy some of the other, less popular (or even popular) content sites were to hear that there are so many disgruntled eHowers. They stand to gain an influx of new writers, content and hopefully readers. I found it interesting to receive an email yesterday […]

I’m in the process of conducting another eHow experiment so I set up a separate eHow account. No biggie, after all I set up my original account about a year and a half ago, so I’m no stranger to the process. Imagine my surprise when shortly after setting up the account (within hours), I received […]

No, I’m not talking about the fact that eHow seems to have fixed the publishing problem (although that’s a good reason to celebrate), I’m talking about my first high earning article. I’ve managed to accidentally write an article that earned over $1,000! Wow. The article took about 15 or 20 minutes to write, another 5 […]

It seems that there have been quite a few problems recently over at eHow. The problem came to my attention when I attempted to publish a How to and realized after a day or so that I had not received the usual “Your Article was Published” email. For those of you who don’t write for […]
