In Case You Haven't Been Paying Attention--Ehow's WCP Has Ended

I just wanted to post this notice for those that have moved on from ehow and may not have logged in to their accounts in awhile or have not received any emails from ehow regarding some recent changes. In case you haven't heard, ehow has abolished the Writer's Compensation Program as of May 5th 2011.  Some of us  have gotten offers from ehow to buy out our article libraries for a flat fee. If you haven't received an email (just as I have not--AGAIN!) sign in here and check to see if a buyout offer has been made to you.  You have until May 31st to accept any offers.

We all knew this would eventually happen. I've decided to accept the offer I received and leave my ehow worries behind me. I certainly will miss my small monthly ehow payments. With only 30 articles left in my library the payout was a welcome boost to my Paypal balance even if it wasn't enough to cover any monthly expenses. I was thrilled to be consistently making more than the minimum payout for the past 8 consecutive months and viewed that money as a small stash to fall back on in urgent situations like car repairs or other unexpected expenses.  For those of you that depended on your ehow income to meet monthly obligations I sincerely hope you were offered a fair amount that will allow you to meet those obligations for months to come. If you chose not to accept the buyout I hope you find another home for your work and will continue to earn from your efforts.

Since this may be my last post on this blog I'd like to thank everyone who visited, commented, vented, subscribed and contributed in any way to the ehow discussions posted here. It's been great to know you all, read your articles and learn from your shared experiences in the world of ehow and freelance online writing.

Ehow was just one of my ventures in earning money online. I'm involved with other sites and opportunities that I've posted about on my other blog. Hop over to Mom's Online MoneyMakers, if you'd like to investigate other income producing alternatives. I'm sure I will see many of you on ListMyFive, Twitter and other places in the future. Best wishes to all!

  1. As a person who has been frustrated by the vast preponderance of absolute GARBAGE that makes up most ehow articles, I say I will smile at the site's demise. Google has recently penalized ehow hard for the degradation ehow brought to google's search results. It is poetry because ehow probably paid writers more than ehow will now benefit.

    At times one had to go to the second page of google search results just to find a real article fom someone who actually knows their subject!

    Most of you former ehow writers would profit more by collecting links to actual authoritive sites rather than guessing and writing bird age liner material.


If you're here to spam this blog with links to irrelevant sites please move on. Chances are I will delete them.
