There is an alternative site to post your work where you get far more views to your work, and thus a much bigger voice on the world-wide web.
There are those among you who might think that I bang on a lot about this, but it seems to me – as a writer – that the more people I can get looking at and reading my work, the better it is for me in terms of reputation and following, because you only gain fans through plenty of exposure on the web, so any way you can come up with to increase your online profile has to be a great thing, and a real incentive to keep going.
To put this into some kind of perspective that readers can relate to, let me say that on the site in question – wikinut – since the start of March this year, the past three months, I have accumulated just over FIFTY SEVEN THOUSAND views to my posts there, way more than my triond experience. Admittedly, the money at wikinut is less good than triond, but considering that you get to post the same content on both sites, then it really takes minimal effort to help yourself to extra views and earnings.
I find it difficult, to be honest, to comprehend why people would be reluctant to take advantage of what really is a tremendous opportunity to get their names as writers much more widely known. To give you an example of what I mean, on May 30th at wikinut, I had 1,572 visitors to my wikinut posts, and I have NEVER had that many views in a SINGLE day on triond – EVER. All you need do is log on to - http://www.wikinut.com/in/ughfl/
The site is very friendly and easy to use, with accessible admin types and a very friendly atmosphere to it. Add to this the obvious benefits of the fact that wikinut is much higher in the google rankings, and you can immediately understand the value, in writer profile terms, of joining up to wikinut. You need, realistically, to ignore the poor earnings potential there simply because of the other benefits of membership, because making your name widely recognized as a writer is a basic requirement for writing success.
I myself get a few points for your signing up, but that is not the reason for my recommending the site so heavily. In the writing jungle, every little bit of help and advice really does count, and I want to simply poinr people in the direction of an opportunity that is freely available and requires little real effort to be a part of. Get yourselves over there and check it out. Becoming a wikinut contributor could turn out to be the most sensible thing you do as a writer, if you want to get a career boost.
