    I filled out the application, got a writing sample, redid my resume.

    Guess I should have read ahead.

    'We are not accepting applicants outside the US, Canada & UK.'

      Based on what I heard of them, you did not lose too much. HP pays better over time, and your own sites are even better yet smile

    I was with ehow before they were taken over by Demand Studios. Everyone was so upset when the take over began. Demand Studios just went into peoples accounts and deleted articles. We never knew what happened to them. You are better off not being on that site.
    It was a very bad experience I left them and never looked back. That is when I found HP and this is sure a great place.

      Hmmmm...not sure what you mean about a "take over." Demand has always owned eHow. While you and others were writing RevShare articles there, there were thousands of Demand freelancers writing for them as well for upfront pay. They simply eliminated the RevShare writers that weren't a part of Demand, as was their right to do.

      Geez, I sure wish people would actually read the TOS for sites before they start writing for them...

    Never heard of eHow. Sounds like something you'd shout at a barn dance.

      Agreed smile  HP is much more versatile and there's no reason you can't do how to hubs on HP.  It might take a bit more promotion to get them to the top of the Serps, but heh, such are the lives we lead smile

    Re: ehow

    Been there, done that.

    Avoid ehow like the plague. Just must my personal, humble opinion.

    Thanks for the encouragement to not write there, anyway. big_smile

    Although I am trying to write on more sites, just so I can get more income sources and/or backlinks. Have multiple income streams and all that...

      They only pay pennies and it's a bit boring.  I couldn't maintain my creative flow and grew very bored there.    smile

        I wish hubpages would open up their own rip off site. big_smile I'd join!

          ironically I just posted an e how related item in the knowlege exchange forum.  demand studios was denying most people anyways no matter their credentials, skills, etc. so don't feel too bad.  EHOW said I could keep my remaining articles with them but I did not.  I took them all down---I was disgusted with them even though the money had been good.  I do wish I had gotten involved with EHOW several years earlier instead of so late as the money was good.

            It would look exactly hubpages but...

      What sites are you looking at or considering?  Just curious.

        No idea really.

        But the more income streams I have going, the better, I think

          After I get HubPages going well for me, I think my next major site would be InfoBarrel.  I have a few articles there and get the occasional ad click.  I think the potential is at least decent at that site.

            Thanks for the tip. I might check it out. There are plenty to choose from but few are as good as HP.
