One of my little-known side projects is writing "How to" articles on Ehow.com.
I would love for you guys to check my essays out. It doesn't cost you anything to look and it pays me money when people click on my stories. It's not a lot of money, but it's sort of fun for me and whereas my first 5 stories were just informative essays explaining how to do things, my writing has now taken a turn for the silly. (No one will be surprised about that, I suspect.) I'm having more fun with Ehow.com because of the silly factor and I plan to amp up my efforts.
I had this great idea to write an essay about something really silly, like how to survive a zombie apocalypse... I wrote the article, posted it in, and then found that several other people had the same idea, as evidenced by the list of similar articles. It's ok though... I put my own spin on it. It's kind of funny. One of my tips for surviving a zombie attack is to "Try not to smell delicious". Let me get you a link:
How To Survive the Coming Zombie Apocalypse
My name on Ehow.com is "Scribenik". Do please read my stories one and all. OR if you hate to read, just click on em and then close them out. heh
Yes, I did write one titled "How to Stop Stinking." I giggled the whole time I was writing.
There is a search bar at the top of the home page for ehow.com and you can put "scribenik" in the search bar to find my profile and links to all my other stories. If you're feeling froggy, rate my stories! I'll tell you something else... my nephew is writing stories under the name "evinknows" and his are hilarious. He is 14 years old now and his how to articles are really very, very good. He has written "How to Deal With Your Little Siblings" and that one cracks me up. He tells how to torment your younger sibling without getting in trouble. He has other must-have knowledge nuggets, like, "How to Get Away With Anything at School". and "How to Fake Sick". I told him about Ehow.com and that he could join and get money by writing articles and he was all over it. He's very creative and funny and it shows in his essays.
But read mine first.
