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.'
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.
Been there, done that.
Avoid ehow like the plague. Just must my personal, humble opinion.
Thanks for the encouragement to not write there, anyway.
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.
I wish hubpages would open up their own rip off site. 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.
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.
Have you checked out WAHM.com? (Work at Home Moms) Plenty of sites and freelance jobs discussed. You can see if any appeal to you.

The free eHow publishing is vanishing to be replaced with Demand Studios. It seems some people who met certain criteria were grandfathered in to DS and everyone else has to apply to them. To write for eHow means one has to be accepted into Demand Studios who looks like they have a tough join...

I got in on EHOW towards the very end just a few months before it imploded. I was making decent money right away----MUCH more than what I make per adsense per hubpages, etc. However, I disliked a number of other things about EHOW. When EHOW imploded there were a number of other things...

Has anyone written for eHow, and if so, how was your experience with them? I am thinking about writing for eHow because they seem to be prestigious and unaffected by Google Alg. I will still likely write on here, and am looking at other websites as supplements too.(ones that pay upfront, and...

eHow is going to be using Facebook Login as the ONLY method of logging into the site, removing eHow member profiles and removing the forums. I personally don't use eHow but what are your opinion on these changes? To me it sounds like they're making the site even worse! (Never mind the fact I can't...

I am taking a four month leave of absence from work and really need to increase my online earnings to help cover as much lost income as possible.I have heard good things about Demand Studios - at least that they pay $15 upfront for articles and I would be more than happy with that. However, I hear...

Can anyone explain if there is a requirement or at least an incentive somewhere somehow that would force or cause Hubpages to keep being active in its current form for many many years to come? The reason I ask is that I went through writing a lot of articles and then promoting eHow (not just my...
