If your computer had ears, you'd be hearing me scream right now! I've been writing for Yahoo! Voices for almost two years now and by a big surprise, my profile has been featured on the contributor's site. My whole profile, all 212 articles of mine!
I am super excited about this as I've been a featured writer for parenting topics and crafts & hobbies each month for a year now. I get guaranteed articles for pay and if the editors like what I write, they'll feature that particular article on another page of the community site. That spikes up my performance views which means more money.
Lately, I've been having heart-to-heart conversations with God about my role as a writer as I've not been motivated to write since September. I recently got an email from the Yahoo! editors stating that they are doing away with the featured contributor program starting in January. December is the last month I will be able to write featured articles. That doesn't mean I won't be able to write for them anymore. That just means I won't have guaranteed articles for higher pay. That means I'd have to write double the amount of articles to match what I was making in the featured program. I'd be crazy to pass this last month up but I'll be damned to hell if I can get motivated to write. I try to talk myself into it but I just can't seem to scrape up a topic, no matter how hard I think about it. I take it as a hint that this is not where I'm supposed to be right now, but it's killing me to pass up these last couple featured articles. What is wrong with me????
I just wanted to share my success with all my readers. So if anyone has a parenting topic or a craft idea I can write about, please comment and I'll see what I can do. Someone please kick me in the butt to jumpstart my brain!!!
