Examiner sent out one of those auto-emails informing me that I got a new subscriber and that makes 14. On the entire WORLD WIDE web, I got 14 and the auto-email states, "You’ve got quite the fan club going." Yeah, right. Man, that is so depressing.
FYI for all interested in writing: I have discovered that Examiner.com is a great place to publish articles and they are currently recruiting writers.
Think of it as a blog, except that the articles are to be structured more akin to a newspaper. They pay their writers based on amount of traffic, # of subscriptions (basically, people signing in for email alerts), etc.
