My daughter holding one of my first cameras. Up until recently, I had a Cannon Rebel EOS camera to take pictures for all of my freelance articles. Now, let’s just say I don’t have it any more. All I have is the camera on my smartphone. This got me to thinking, just how important is the type of camera you use for photos? Way back at the beginning of my freelancing career, I used a SLR camera, until it broke. Then I moved on to using disposable wedding cameras. Yep, you read that right. My husband took pity on me and bought me a […]

Disposable Wedding Cameras or a Cannon Rebel: How Important is Photos When You’re a Freelance Writer?

I signed up with Blog Distributor years ago and then forgot all about it. A week ago, I started getting emails from them with blogging offers. I scoffed at first, but then I decided to give them a try.  Here’s how the site works: You sign up your blog(s). The site checks you blog to make sure that it is high quality.

The test article is graded by editors […]

Make a Halloween Spider Egg Sac

A while back I made posted about Interact Media, asking anyone if they had used the site before. Well, I decided to give it a shot.  Interact Media offers writing work that pays $.007 to $.16 per word. On the high-end of the scale, the pay isn’t bad, but these jobs are few and are only offered to writers with a five-star rating. I figured this out because I started with a four-star rating and moved up to a five-star rating.  The site is a lot less user-friendly than some of IM’s competitors and the site is a bit old-fashioned. Otherwise, I […]
