Challenge Accepted


The DPChallenge wants us to sharpen our writing by removing needless words. I chose to edit a paragraph from “How to Leave a Comment.”

 

Old Version

First, I will deal with leaving a comment. If you can’t leave your feedback on a blog’s main page (mine or anyone else’s), please click on a particular post. Each post has its own distinct link and you can always write a comment at the bottom. In order for your feedback to be accepted (at least on most blogs), you must supply a link to your website. A person who isn’t a member of WordPress.com must also give an email address on a WordPress blog.

New Version

Let’s discuss leaving a comment first. If you can’t remark on a blog’s main page, click on a title. Each heading has a distinct link and you “Reply” at the bottom. Supply your email address and website with your opinion.

 

My Feelings

There are 85 words in the “Old Version.” I surpassed my goal of halving that number with 40 in the “New Version.” The main question is if the shorter version is still “my style.” Yes, I would choose the shorter version if I were writing actual instructions instead of a blog post.

HubPages information needed


I’m thinking about writing for HubPages, but I want all the information I can find before I make this decision. I had a terrible experience writing articles for Examiner.com as Evansville Genealogy Examiner and as Evansville Pets Examiner. With them, it took me three years to earn the minimum payout of $10!

I need to know, does anyone here writes for HubPages? If yes, please leave a reply or send an e-mail to jewel(dot)ammons@gmail(dot)com answering the following questions?

  • Do you make money on every post?
  • If yes, how much do you personally make for each piece of content? What is your monthly average from GoogleAds and other advertising?
  • If no, what draws you to HubPages? Does what you’re earning from advertising make it worthwhile?
  • If you write for HubPages and another organization, which do you recommend for a writer with three years of publishing experience who wants to make a decent amount of money ($6 or more) per post?

Thank you all for any assistance you can give me. I’m also open to your suggestions of where to publish my writing whether non-fiction or fiction. I’m currently working on several short stories and 2-3 novels in the fiction department.

Bye for now.
