Online Writing Communities : HUBPages Earnings Can Be Inherited

A while back I read a complaint that someone had passed away but that the site was still earning income from the deceased writer's articles.

First of all, though that may sound not quite “kosher”, there's actually nothing wrong or illegal with doing that. If the writer did not make any provisions for the account to be transferred to a “beneficiary” then earnings go to the site owners. Who else?

Today, however, I found this detailed information that made it plain what the site's policy and procedures are. If you happen to be a HUBPages Contributor, “Your HUBPages Income Can Be Inherited”.  This is not "my story".  It is the journey of another HP Contributor, Amy (Happymommy2520).  If you're interested in my journey, see the links below.


Appreciate the clarification. Good to know and good to know what to do with my HUBs. The content is evergreen and my HUBs do earn income, slowly but surely. There's no need to delete them after I'm gone.  No doubt the residual income would be welcomed.

Kid Size Cooking: Rainbow Checkerboard Cake (YouTube Video Share)

Another wonderful foodie discovery found by accident. I heart rainbows. I heart desserts. Have had an affiliate marketing website since 2011. When Google Plus invited me to join the G+ social / professional network, part of the membership includes being able to create a business page to link to your official website. Used to be called “page”. Now it's called “brand”. Either way, setting up a business page or establishing a brand account is kind of like passing out an electronic business card for your website, only better!

Long story short. Back in 2011, a blogger on G+ started following my Everyday Exotic Spices page. On her timeline, she had shared a recipe for a rainbow cake. However, clicking the link led me to page stating that the blog had been discontinued. Thought to myself 'Perhaps there's a new blog somewhere else and the recipe has been published there.' So typed an appropriate phrase into the search box and VOILA! Never found the original blogger's recipe but the YouTube video with kids in the kitchen is just as good!! Awesome!!



This YouTube channel has close to 4 million subscribers! Impressive huh? Might as well join the fun. Clicked the subscriber's button, gave it a Thumbs Up, and decided to share the video via this blog.

Blogjob.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted? (Post Update #2)

Two years today I joined a blogging community called BlogJob and shared my first impression in this post:

A year later I published my revised first impression in this post:
Ah well! It's been a year and it's time to revise my revision of my first impression AGAIN!

Hey! My first impression was right and I'm sticking to it! Sure the site owners made changes. But they haven't SHUT DOWN!  They get an A+++ in my book just for hanging in there! They also get my sincerest thanks because they didn't delete my blog or ask me politely to move on. That is extremely gracious of them. Don't you think so?  Currently publishing two blogs via their platform (My Pain, Your Gain and My Shopping Channel) (post feed below); still being allowed to participate in the Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan; and also being allowed to use affiliate referral links and keep 100% of the earned commissions.  Also, ever once in a while, they let me share my opinion.

Who is Peter Ackroyd? Biographer, Historian, Poet, Novelist, Etc.

Who is Peter Ackroyd?


Hmmm ... let me think.  Is he the guy in the picture?



Nope!  But you're close!  The guy in the picture below is Charles Dickens.  Peter Ackroyd wrote a biography about Dickens.  He also wrote a bio about William Shakespeare, in case the mention about the Charles Dickens bio is not impressive enough.  :)  If that's not impressive enough, then if you like biographies or biographical notes about celebrated, it might interest you to know that he wrote a bunch of books about famous people like Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Isaac Newton and more.  His series is called Ackroyd's Brief Lives.



Charles Dickens (1812-1870)

Peter Ackroyd is an eccentric but well-established author in many genres:  biographer, historian, poet, novelist, etc.  Published a brief write-up about him at Daily Two Cents, an online writing community that offers a revenue-share plan for contributing short posts.  Good freelance opportunity!  Great if you work from home!

Cmoneyspinner on Over-Blog | My Pain, Your Gain

Using a free account at a site called OverBlog. It’s sort of like Tumblr or Pinterest, in that it’s really easy to share links, photos, etc. and write your own content. My posts date back to April 2015 and the last time there was any activity was June 2016.  Creating a blog was easy and the site does have visual appeal. However, my site does not get much traffic, so I don't spend a lot of time there.


More details at related link: 

Cmoneyspinner on Over-Blog | My Pain, Your Gain




Sharing a quick list of the most recent posts below and also some embedded content. This blog has its usefulness in that it creates a space on the Internet for a collection of random things that are of interest to me, e.g. news about world affairs which become history reference markers, food and drink, entertainment, etc.

Do you use OverBlog?  Would be interested in knowing your experience.  Feel free to comment and share a link.

Freelance Writing Opportunities : WWW : Wizzley Welcomes Writers

Online writing communities are mushrooming all over the worldwide web. The majority of them are free to sign up, have a revenue-sharing plan, allow you to work at your own pace and you can write on any number of topics. Some are pay-per-view. Some are pay-per-click. Some are based on actual product sales. Usually, the only stringent criteria is a certain number of words required to publish a post. The main thing is they are legitimate work-at-home opportunities.
 

Wizzley Welcomes Writers
Newbie or Experienced 
Join Today!  



This blog entry discusses one of those communities, Wizzley.com, which is based in Germany. Since the Internet is worldwide, where a company's headquarters is located is irrelevant. This post is the beginning of a series of posts which will showcase these different sites and my own experience.  Wizzley.com is not the first site that I published for, but it is one of the current websites where my articles are still live for public viewing.
 
My first article was published May 2013, so next month will be my first anniversary. To date there are 34 “Wizzles” to my credit. The site owners and the writers in the community are supportive. The publishing platform is easy to use and their revenue-sharing plan is reasonable and money can be earned via VigLink, Amazon, AllPosters, Zazzle, Google Adsense or Chitika. Text referral links from other affiliate advertisers like ShareASale or Commission Junction are also allowed. Those are the highlights. To learn more, just visit the site by clicking the banner below.
