Hi, Im sorry, but I am so excited. I just landed a freelance job writing for Examiner.com. Besides hubpages, this is the only one that I have been able to get paid for my writing since I came back from my sabbatical that lasted almost 4 years. I used to be a full time freelance writer until a life changing experience happened to me November 2006. I thank you all at hubpages for allowing me to get back into writing again. You all have been wonderful supporters. I know I have only been here for 5 weeks, but reading all your hubs and being able to express here just has opened my flood gates to my second start. I will not be leaving hubpages, as I am way too addicted. I just wanted to share. I hope you all do not mind.
Wittywriter, congratulations to you with CHEERS! I won't even be jealous, I am so pleased for you!
We don't mind at all-- I'm sure it gives many people hope. I have seen other such stories here.
We wish you the best.
OH! Thank you so much, Moonmaiden. Examiner.com does have more openings. If anyone is interested, drop on over and see if any interests any of you. Ill let you all know when I have posted my new article. I have to do it in 3 days. They just set up my page. I want to see if there is anyway to advertise hubpages on it.
Wow! Congrats! I'm excited for you and encouraged that there are people out there who get paid to write!
Please do give us a link to your article when its done!!
LondonGirl, thanks. I sure will let you know. Even with a terrible head cold I can not help my but yell my excitement. My husband is pretty excited too. He would love nothing better than to have me make the money I used to make when I was freelance writing. With this freelance job on Examiner.com, I am making only a dollar less than I already make an hour. So, if I can get the hits on Examiner.com and a couple of really good gigs, I might be able to go part time as a License Nursing Assistant. I am hoping in less than 2 years to go full time again as a freelancer and part time as a LNA instead of part time freelancer and full time LNA. Pray for me.
Cool! I love reading good news! Congrats and best wishes!
I too am writing for the examiner, so I am sure you will love it wittywriter. What city are you writing for by the way?
Oh, wonderful SweetiePie! At least I know someone there. I am writing on plus size fashions, Manchester NH. My name is April Godbout. They just finished setting up my page late this afternoon. Ill be playing around with it starting tomorrow morning and hope to have my first article finished by tomorrow night. I only have three days. Thanks! It is one more step getting me back to where I was when I was the happiest. How long have you been writing for them? Just curious.
Make sure you put a link on your profile so people can find you over at the examiner. I am the arts and crafts examiner for the LA edition. I started in March and I absolutely love the site, but Hubpagges is still my favorite .
Cool, I will have to check you out... ummm... that did not come out right. I will check out your articles on the examiner. I sure will put a link on my profile. Great suggestion. If you have any other little suggestions, I am open to it. Drop me a line... thanks so much.
Also do not forget to build links back to the hubs similar to the topics you write about at the examiner. That is one of the great ways to promote our hubs outside of Hubpages. The examiner says they actually are happy with self-promotional links to informative sites, and hubs do qualify.
Also check out the epicenter on the examiner because they have some great articles and videos on how to get started writing there.
congratulations for it,hope you always be there for long and you also spend your time here
Let me add my congrats too. Keep writing and sharing because your good news will spread to others in this loving Universe.
Congratulations. This examiner website seems like a really good one for hubpages writers. Shame that it hasn't come to the UK yet though.
well done..... do you mind me being just a teeny weeny bit jealous....
congrats that awesome
take advice from hubbers with excellent writing skills and averages of 100 to find out more
so happy for you
Thanks. I am not new at writing. I have been doing it for 16+ years, but I do always welcome good advice. With writing you can never learn too much and it is ever changing. New avenues, new places... oh my... its almost endless what you can do.
I just uploaded my new article on examiner.com. It will take them up to three days to examine and approve my first article. When it gets approved... Ill let you all know. The title is Hot swim suits for plus size women. I just want to say thank you to all that have posted a reply to me and any future hubber posting encouragements - I really appreciate them all.
my article is up on examiner.com, http://www.examiner.com/x-11576-Nashvil … ize-women, jump on and see what you think.
It says article not ready . Mine did that at first, so make sure to email your channel manager to let them know you wrote your first article, which means you will be live on the site much sooner.
It should not take three days if you email the channel manager to let them know you have written the article. It took twelve hours for my first article to go live on the site.

But if you're earning good money here, might as well focus on one or two things. examiner is also a great place to earn.

I have been on HubPages for 6 years now, and its been quite an interesting journey to say the least. I am so thrilled, because I noticed I had finally hit 1 million views, something I can't say I anticipated ever really! I am sharing this in part, to encourage people to hang in there,...

by Helen Cater 11 years ago
