I’m noticing a trend with regards to my writing-for-money endeavor. Specifically, the trend seems to be that when I put any real effort into it, at all, I write much more quickly than they’ll publish at TechRepublic.
I currently have five articles queued up for publication, presumably in my editor’s inbox, at TR. Four of those, along with another that was published almost two weeks ago, have been there since the middle of last month. Part of this delay can be attributed to the fact that the editor was on vacation for about a week and a half.
The salient point here, though, is that there are currently five articles waiting for publication, and it looks like there’s a delay of at least two weeks between publications of articles. That seems suboptimal. As a result, I’m looking for more places to publish. I’ve discovered that I like this writing-for-money thing.
Does anyone have any suggestions for places that’d publish my work? For an example of the sort of thing I’ve been writing (and getting paid to write), check out my growing list of Online Publication Credits. Specifically, the stuff under the “TechRepublic Articles” heading — since the PerlMonks tutorials weren’t paid, of course, and weren’t exactly aimed at professional publication when I wrote them.
Start making suggestions for places to go to get published. More to the point, if YOU, the reader, want to pay me to write stuff, let me know.
