Yahoo Voices Ended their Service

As quoted from their email:  "As part of our ongoing effort to sharpen our focus, on July 31, 2014, Voices.Yahoo.com will be shut down; on August 15, we will make the final Performance Payment before Contributor.Yahoo.com closes."

It's a shame to see that part of Yahoo's Contributor Network come to an end. I've been one of their writers for several years and maintained 23 articles there. Now I'm in need to find a new place to submit my articles that vary greatly in topic: poetry, book reviews, travel, pets, etiquette and writing. I just joined Squidoo.com and I'm learning the ropes about how it works. Does anyone out there reading this know that online content service? Do you write there? Do you like it? Does that service pay well?

I also have my eyes on Hubpages, Bubblews, InfoBarrel and Constant Content. Any opinions or suggestions? I know this doesn't have much to do with Tiaera, but it does have a lot to do with writing. Please feel free to offer whatever advice you can offer about this topic. Thank you!

As I work to find a new place to submit my "non-Tiaera" stories and articles, I'm also removing my latest blog story "Add a Spark of Valor" because I plan to either make it into an ebook or add parts of it to my third book in the works. I hope you enjoyed it while it was up and will look forward to the new version of this story one day in the near future.

Lobita is growing into a fine dog and she is learning to give me time on the computer to write these days. She is now 7 months old and thriving despite the heat and the monsoons out here.



Keep cool and keep on writing!
