I was wondering why I had to many comments come in through the email notifications and when I went to the site I saw a review on polyamory but it has a different title than the one that I submitted. My title is "Polyamory: When One Love Just Isn't Enough" but on the main page it is " Polyamory: How I Shared a Boyfriend". When I saw the title and the image (the one that I submitted with the article) I almost fell over thinking that someone else 'stole' my review. Imagine my surprise when I clicked on it and saw my article about the subject and my experience. Anyone else ever have an article land on the front page?

Wow!! Congrats!!! :) I signed up for the site quite a while back but I still haven't gotten around to really checking it out or writing anything there yet. Do you make anything extra there for comments and such left on your story or just a flat fee when you submit an article? I haven't written for any sites except Epinions, so I'm not really sure how this one works yet.

Lisado, They make you an initial offer a few business days after you submit your work (story) that is a flat fee, but you also earn $1.50 per every 1,000 page views you acquire so if you're writing content that is searchable and gets read you can also accumulate a solid page view bonus.

I haven't landed on the front page in terms of the showcase articles. I have been on the page for the top rated articles a couple of times (and they have significantly helped my page views), but anyhow ... I did actually read your article out of curiosity. Can't fathom doing it myself, but I respect different choices by a wide variety of people. It was a cool/interesting article. Thanks for sharing.

That's terrific, it must have been a real buzz. Unfortunately it will never happen for me as I don't live in the U.S. Good work.

Its shocking to hear this and i think you have to monitor a report and make sure that your article is not misplaced just like that. Such things does happen but on a rear case.
