Each day the amount of articles that are pending approval grows on our sites.  We check all articles by new writers – and some writers that are not so new, too.  Our rule is that you must have a minimum of 3 articles approved before you can self-publish but that is a minimum.  If we have to edit the article, send it back for editing, remind you of the rules, and other things, it’s going to take longer to get to self-publishing status. So, I thought I would put together some tips for you today.  If you’re not self-publishing[...]

My real name is Kim and I guess in a way you could say I’m a ‘refugee’ from Squidoo.com, which is cutting it’s wires because it sold out to Hubpages. I started writing there (on squidoo) around 2008 (or at least made the account).

Tips on Writedge After 100 Posts

Yesterday’s post marked my 100th on the site. I’m so happy to be able to say that. It’s taken me five months to get to the 100 post mark. I started on March 26, 2014 and today is August 27.

How many years you’ve been working late missing holidays? A nice house and a brand-new car: this is the price you gotta pay in getting a good education with a handsome diploma from a top notch university and burnt brows. But Robert Kiyosaki said this is not the price you gotta pay when you learn financial intelligence. I remember the book was introduced in Oprah’s Book Club. That was 2004. I was staring at the book displayed in the bookstore; I didn’t bother to buy it. I can’t afford it that time. But I had in mind the title[...]
