Wrote a small piece on where to see Spring Wildflowers in Atlanta...some picturesque locations here so read up!
The last I remember this was a fairly easy process. You set up an account on Yahoo to contribute to their growing number of articles. You can choose to write your own topics and have the editors review for publication. Or you can check on the assignment desk and see what types of articles they are looking for, and submit content in keeping with their requirements. Most times this is something very easy and requires just your personal experience or some very basic searching online. The articles almost always get published right away unless you did something terribly wrong and did not follow all instructions. Sometimes they can even get rejected or sent back for corrections but most times they get approved right away. Some of them you get paid for on publication and some you get paid for based on views - either ways once the article is published, there is infinite opportunity for it to be viewed and read so it is always fun when out of the blue, you get a few dollars deposited in your account for performance pays for these articles you submitted long long ago. All you need is an active PayPal account and this could be an additional course of surprise income for you :) Read my latest here or see other articles I have written and sign up for your own account.
Beginning of the year beckons an update of all records, and that includes your resume. Even if you have an online version on LinkedIn, ensure you have a nicely formatted word document or pdf version of it as well that you can easily send as an attachment to prospects and clients. Once you have this in place, it can serve as a master document for updates you want to make elsewhere, such as a portfolio website like mine or other online resources where you have a resume requirement.
These articles I wrote on achieving email efficiency are good resources as well:
Part 1 and Part 2
Hope it helps, do share your tips as well.
PS - If you need help with a resume review or formatting your resume, just email me and we can work on it together.
I began writing for Associated Content, now Yahoo Voices, out of the sheer need to write and see my work online in the days of 'when I was unemployed'. It felt nice to jump on their article suggestions and submit work which they accepted...I even got pay per view money so why not?! I continue to write articles there ranging from Atlanta attractions to small business, vacation and travel to going green, networking even. Here is a link to my latest article -
