As you already know I'm the Canada Wedding Examiner. How is it going UW? Are you gone live already? I haven't been able to find you there yet. What name are you using? I'm still Zsuzsy Bee. I believe Sweetie Pie is the Arts & Crafts Examiner for LA. However she must be busy as I haven't seen much of her around lately.
Great to find this thread! I am the LA Arts and Crafts examiner, and I just added Zsuzy Bee and Uninvited writer to my favorites. I will add some of the other hubbers to as I find everyone, which is not an easy feat. Just wanted to remind everyone to make the link on the Hubpages profile to their examiner profile clickable, which means you get a backlink to your examiner articles.
Hi Sweetie Pie, hope you're well. I too find it hard to find anyone on the examiner sites. I added you to my favorites when I first started up but most of the time your articles do not show up for me to read... just as UW's do. Are you happy with examiner.com? I still find it a bit frustrating. The eternal question here--->are you making any money? Is it worth your time? How do I make my examiner profile clickable? Don't you wish that navigation there was as easy as here on hubpages?
I do make money with them and I enjoy writing there, but I make much more with Hubpages. Mostly I like the examiner because it also means more links to my hubs, so for that it is good too! One thing I really did not like is how they think people should be out at events, so I just continue to write what is true for me in the world of crafting. You can highlight your examiner link on your Hubpages profile and click on the link button. That should make it clickable .
I'm a Grand Rapids MI New Age Examiner. I haven't written much over there this month with Bill in and out of the hospital.
I was doing OK there but I didn't get a payment this month, even though I met the criteria. It's not very transparent, the payment system--I mean, it's even less transparent than here--and the community is not that friendly over there either. But for a while the pay was pretty good.
I get a lot of snark in comments, but some nice ones too.
I also dislike their frequent emails about how to get fresh news instead of perennial content. Nice for them, if they can get people to do it, but remember when reporters had paying jobs? I mean, real jobs?
Sometimes the emails are so frequent it FEELS like I have a corporate job again (you get lots of generic emails pushing you to do more or do it differently or previewing new policies that seem to be constantly changing), only without the paycheck.
I just go ahead and write short evergreen content articles. Many other examiners do too, and I have reached payout a few times. Although I noticed lately it is getting slower, but my topic is not exactly the hottest one in the world.
I was considering applying, but then a guy I know through FB posted a couple months ago that everyone should subscribe to him on examiner.com because that is how he gets paid now. That didn't sound like something that was worth the trouble. And now that I'm thinking about it, I don't recall seeing him link to many examiner articles lately on FB, which used to be a daily thing.
Hey everybody,I recently started getting excited about my Adsense earnings as they seemed to be getting pretty consistent. Being new they are still low but they were getting pretty close to being $1 a day and sometimes...
This morning I was excited to see I just got my second examiner.com pay out! For me these have not been as high as adsense, but the articles I am writing there allow me to link back to my hubs here. Just...
Does anyone know any other site similar to Hubpages? I'm starting to like this site and I'm realizing that it's really better than all the other sites so, it would be nice to find another similar site.Anyone?
With the closing of Examiner I have 100s of articles that I have no place for as they do not fit any of my own websites, nor do I have the time to start more niche sites. I was thinking of bringing them here to...
Wow, just found one of my articles plagiarized almost word for word by a writer named Sharon Jones on Examiner.com. The funniest part in her bio is she claims to be a "devoted Christian"! Guess she missed the...
