    Is there a writing site that emphasizes quality over economics?

    I wonder if you could be viable if the criteria was not Google but rather quality of the writing.

    I have no desire to submit to Google and get the mark of that particular beast on my work. I am looking into starting a site just for Indiana writers.

      I am afraid we have that mark by publishing here. Too late.

      I, sir, remain unmarked. I do not have Google ad sense. Google readily cooperates with oppressors around the globe. I want no part of that.

    Maybe you need to start up such a site Eric. I don't know of any. There are a few other creative writing sites but they either charge you a monthly or yearly fee, or fees for anything other than the basic access.

      I think John that I just might look into that. My thoughts tend toward a non profit run by donations.

      I understand that "Seekyt" is a really great site......free to join, friendly and pays well.  You should research/investigate.

    I've never signed up for Google AdSense.
    I simply enjoy writing and reading items on HP. I also write for Examiner.com which has more of a process to become accepted as a writer. However once you are accepted you do not have any dealings with a  third party such a Google.
    Having said that the purpose of launching a website or forum is to generate income from advertisers. The owner of the site informs advertisers exactly how many clicks and views they get daily as well as the typical readers age/income demographics. Writers who write for profit realize they get paid based upon the number of times their articles are clicked on or read.
    In most instances both the owners of the site and the  writers want to increase their revenues/incomes above all else.
    It's a balancing act to maintain quality/reputation and popularity. Generally speaking the writers who are the most social media savvy and have a network of contacts, followers, or fans that read their postings regularly and whose articles are frequently highlighted/promoted by the site will earn the most.

      Thank you for a great comment, it really adds to the discussion. I am thinking of a publisher that does not "sign onto" ad sense.
