Has anyone heard of or applied to write for Channillo [dot] com? It sounds like writers will release work in the form of a series and get paid based upon the number of subscribers their series gets. Do you think this idea has potential? The website doesn't launch until March, but they just started accepting applications from interested writers. Has anyone been accepted yet? Just curious to hear other writers' thoughts on this new opportunity...
If you want to read anything on the site (when it launches) you will have to pay a monthly subscription fee. Personally, I wouldn't subscribe to a brand new site with no history or track record, whose content is a total mystery hidden behind a pay wall. Would you?
I would not want to be any early adopter of any of these sites. Wait and see how it goes. A new great way to make money writing content is getting invented every day of the week and 99.9% of them are not going to work out.
When you can get entire books for free on Amazon for Kindle, why would you pay to read anything like this online? As a writer if readers feel this way, you won't earn anything. It doesn't sound like a good idea to me.
And not to be a total bitch (okay, maybe I am) I do not think it will be superb quality control that makes it worth the fee. The material will be all genres and almost all comers. The writers accepted already show... a range of ability.
That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard, people are not even paying to see those beneficial videos on Youtube to watch. How would you expect them to pay for a newly created site as such and for the purpose of reading articles? There are plenty of other free articles on the internet. The site is down before launching lol. If even celebrities join this site, they would be hardly getting people subscribing for their content so how about random people and writers? No, thank you. I'm passing. Next?
I think it could be a valid model, especially as they are working to target fiction and prose. I know a lot of creative writers that will be willing to take a shot at get 80% of what their writing earns.
I suppose the quality of work on the site would have to be high. I hate ads and I like the idea of directly supporting writers, so I wouldn't have a problem paying subscription fees for a site like this (assuming great content), but perhaps I am in the minority...
What makes you think it would be only maunderings? I buy books all the time. I subscribe to magazines. What's the difference? If good writers were on the site, I think their work has value, and I would pay for it.
The difference is that they are soliciting absolutely everything from pretty much everyone. a.k.a. what is already free on the internet. If they were targeting a specific affluent and underserved readership or genre at least to start they might have a snowball's hope.
Thanks for the reminder on wattpad. I don't have an opinion. I don't know much about it, but I think it's free to read, and write. I know one of Canada's best known writers publishes there, (Margaret Atwood) and her stuff is free to read.
It is free to read and write although they own everything you write I believe. In other words you can't move it, if I am correct. It appears to be the best forum for writing continuing books. You write in chapters or parts. You can write short works, but I don't believe it lends itself to that. I was just wondering if anyone knew any more than that. I wrote one work, a short work. It's had 19 reads total, but I have only been following ppl who follow me first... I can't seem to find anyone I would want to follow strictly for their work yet, though I haven't spent enough time actually reading like I should. I heard about someone having great success there. Ppl really got into her book. I think when I am ready to do something with my book, I may give that a try.
Do you really mean that? The meaning of "throw a spanner into the works", is to do something to disrupt or sabotage. It comes from the idea that you have a large machine running, and you throw a spanner into it, which will cause it to jam.
Sorry, I mean, I may not help them with writing as I'm busy somewhere else. Just like a spanner, a small handle tool, may not be helpful in a large industrial work. I can't sabotage other people's plans Marisa.
Do you guys who have 100 hubscores pay for ads for a site that leads to hubpages or hubpages themselves? And how do you do this?Also, June seems slow, can't remember if that is how things worked last year.

Just curious. I did meet someone who used to make a living writing on Squidoo before they made some changes. I know some people on Bubblews who live in some "third world" countries that make enough on there to...
