What a week! It has seemed to be a flurry of writing, and rating on Helium. I wrote 2 articles for their Marketplace. This is where publishers make requests for certain pieces and allow submissions from the site’s writers. Because the publishers haven’t made a decision on which articles to publish, I cannot provide links at this time. If mine are chosen and published, I will do so. And if they are not, they’ll be transferred to Helium and I can link you then as well. I am also planning a few more articles for the Marketplace this week as well. They are supposed to be a guide to the most interesting and haunted locations in San Diego, California and Charleston, South Carolina. It should be interesting and I am working on my research for those now.
I finally managed to complete all the requirements for the Reward-a-Thon and have been writing up a storm for that. I did 3 articles just under those categories today, and plan on doing more tomorrow. I have a little over a month to get as many of those titles done as I can. It will be a long month, but hopefully it will be rewarding in the end. They promise rewards, so I will work like hell to get them. I cannot wait to keep writing for the reward-a-thon, so many of the titles are right up my alley. They have about 8 titles on sharks, which as many of you know I am a complete shark fanatic. I can easily name a hundred topics that I can write on, if only I can find the time.
Also, if any of your know of somewhere that is looking for a part-time proofreader or copywriter, please let me know. I could always use more opportunity to ply my trade, and this would be a great opportunity. And a little extra spending cash can’t possibly hurt either. The two stipulations I have for this are that i must be able to work from home, and it cannot take up more than about 20 hours a week. Other than that, send me the info, I am always interested in new opportunities. So, now for the shameless self-promotion that I seem to be getting so good at…my newest articles:
Physical Attributes of the Goblin Shark: http://www.helium.com/items/1155456-goblin-shark-appearance-of-goblin-shark-biology-of-the-goblin-shark
Eating habits of the Great White Shark: http://www.helium.com/items/1155844-great-white-shark-feeding-habits-great-white-shark-prey
Physical characteristics of the Hammerhead Shark: http://www.helium.com/items/1155844-great-white-shark-feeding-habits-great-white-shark-prey
And again, I will get you a link to those other two pieces as soon as I can. I think you would like them, the topics are: How dirty talking improved your relationship and the etiquette of a one night stand. The first I have personal experience with, the second not so much. But regardless, both articles were very fun and I am hoping that they get picked for publication. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I will know by Friday. ~Stef
