    I've begun participating in another revenue-sharing site. There are some legitimate writers there, but there's quite a few questionable practices by members; by this I mean much of what is posted  looks like copied content and I know the place is notorious for attracting schemers and spammers. Anyway, it's a bit like I walked into the bad district. So, someone comments on one of my posts over there, she has all signs of being honest and legitimate; she says she likes my writing and wants to see my other work. I'm hesitant as can be about this: I mean, on a site with a lot of people who copy content and use other scams, I'm worried about posting any links to my other content. Is this a legitimate concern that I have? Because my other thought is, How do I get exposure to my work if I'm scared of posting links for people who are honestly interested in my content? Any feedback is appreciated.

      I understand your hesitation. Having your efforts abused by others is frustrating to say the least. The way I look at it is like this:

      To put my work into a public forum is risking it. If I am posting anything online, I am risking it even further. It's just so much easier to steal. I do my best to keep my work protected, if I can verify the dates I post things, that at least leaves me with a way to say I did it first. 

      But above all, I get it out there. No one will see it if it's not published.

        Reality Bytes has the right idea. I do a lot with my Forex site and I've joined a number of good Forex trading forums.  It doesn't take long to spot the spammers and phony posts, and lousy forums too.  And, it's also a good place to pickup some ideas.  You can find just about any niche form by doing a 'google'  -->  ie:  forums: forex 

        Luck to you

        Yes, I definitely see your point that a person still has to get their content out there, that's the point of putting it on the Internet.

      Find forums related to your niche (martial arts), become an active part of the community.  When you are involved in a thread, and you have a hub that is relevant to the conversation, post a comment with a link.  The important thing when doing this is not to spam the forums, make sure your comment and links are relevant.  Do not post a link in every comment, like I said, become active in the community.

      Here is one forum that may work for you.

      I do this, I may post one link every two to three months, but I am active almost daily.  Not this particular forum of course.  smile If you are providing value to the forum, they probably will not mind.   I do this on several platforms.  I receive random traffic from threads that are years old.  I also receive shares this way.

        Very good approach and thanks for that link, I will definitely check out that forum. It seems I could join discussions there, it's a subject I'm familiar with.
