    A guy in France found an old article I wrote about William Blake, and he wants to use it as part of his musical stage review, "An Ode to William Blake." He wants me to write more, too. I thought that was pretty cool! You just never know who's reading your online stuff! We haven't worked out all the details yet, but I'm definitely interested.

      That is one thing I have to say is going well for me on HubPages - I have picked up freelance work after using my subdomain(s) as reference. smile

        Cool! I've picked up a lot of jobs via my hubs. As a matter of fact, I need to go write an article about saltwater fishing for a client now.

      Have you ever had requests from magazines to publish any of your hubs?  I received one yesterday and am pondering the situation.

        I've sold articles to magazines, but I haven't sold any of my hubs. Last year, I was contacted about selling all my beauty pageant hubs, but I refused the offer. I figured the residual income for the hubs was worth more than a one-time payment.

          That is my dilemma.  To be able to say that I have had anything published would be  a goal achieved.  I do make nice residuals off of the articles that are wanted.

          My concern is that if I allow the magazine to publish four of my hubs, will that somehow create duplicate content warnings?  If the article is not online, I am not sure of the danger.

          I would not sell my hubs.  Actually I am not even concerned about the money, I am concerned about my property and the effectiveness of continuing to earn from them.

          If I knew for sure that there would be no problem on the internet side, it would make me proud to have them published.

          Thank you for the advice.  As soon as I read the e-mail, I thought of you.  You still are the benchmark of success in my book  wink

            I'm curious what those answers are myself. Isn't there a policy here at HP that says we can't publish or sell the rights to a hub or its contents? I would think duplicate content warnings would show up, unless there is some kind of timeframe where HP doesn't scan your stuff vs. internet anymore...

              The article will only be in print within a magazine.  I have been told that in no way would my content appear anywhere on the internet.  I will receive a link to my profile page on the magazines website.  Other then that there is no payment involved.

              My goal when I started writing was to have something published.  I am excited at the thought that something I authored will be available on newsstands!

      Many thanks, Hudson! LOVE your avatar! You really haven't changed much from when that photo was taken.

      BTW, Hud, is it okay if I pin your Bonaventure hub? The pics are hauntingly beautiful!

    Congrats Habee and good luck to you. I have gotten a couple of email inquiries but was always skittish and wary of them because they did not seem legitimate. I never followed through with such prospective partnerships but this one sounds very good for you and I hope it works out.
