After my work on HubPages, my blog plus a whole lot of tweeting and twitpic'ing I have been approached by the editor of Rock Climbing UK to be a contributor, making this my first (albeit unpaid) online publishing 'job'
I just submitted my first post which will be published shortly, my profile can be found here:
if they ask you to become a regular contributor, that might be a good time to inquire about financial compensation of some sort. building a following on a visible site is good but you still need to protect your interests in the long run, including letting them know you have an interest in tangible rewards as well as intangible ones
Actually, I just had a look round the site and it doesn't seem to be monetised apart from selling climbing books - no adsense that I can see. Maybe you should ask if you can use your Amazon affiliate there or something?
it's always wonderful to get work published, i wrote two articles and got them published in a dog magazine...... my name was splashed all over the place, and i was delighted, but they did not pay me either.
Now i write more for pleasure, i do not agree with magazine using people though..... you should really be getting paid. Maybe it will lead to something for you in the future.
The world seems to be full of wanna be writers at the moment, the editors have a huge choice at their fingertips.
I thought this kind of job was myth. Crossed my fingers all the way up until receiving my first check of $630, working only 5 hours a day. I feel faint. I'm gonna cash this baby right now.Tomorrow I'll up my hours.
I finally published my tenth (actually, more than ten as I'm up to number 11) hub and got what looks like a bronze medal. Woohoo! I wonder if my achieving this milestone is the reason I see fireworks outside...
