How to earn a bit from your blog

Since writing about the plagiarism problem most of us face, when our blogs are lifted , copied and pasted on other websites or in the press, without receiving credit or cash, I have received several emails suggesting solutions.
Scooptwords is a new service that can help you to sell content or pictures from your blog
to other media .They promise to broker any cash for content deals for you. I have still to see any results since adding their button to my blog but it has been just a week.For those who want to try this as an option here is a link to their site www.scoopt.com/words

Thanks for the plug :) I'm helping run the Scooptwords service. For those of you who don't know me, I write noodlepie, the streetfood blog from Saigon.

We beta-launched ScooptWords a little over a week ago, but we're already getting approaches from media buyers who want to buy blog content.

Anyone can join ScooptWords and we hope you do :) We'll soon be highlighting the best of the bunch in niche areas, inc. food. And we'll be pushing these bloggers to editors who are interested in buying.

If you've got any queries about the service, drop me a line.

Oh and deccanheffalump - thanks for signing up :).

But, you'll have to give it more than a week. We're currently aggregating. This is NOT a quick fix route to the published page. It is a paying route, but there are no guarantees anyone will want to pay. That's the big unknown, that's the bit we're finding out about more and more each day...

Dont suppose you can talk to the people at feedburner to get your buy button added automatically through the feed burner service.

Nice idea :) We have thought about it and we are talking to a few folk about things like this. Hope to announce more soon. The only thing I would add about feedburner is that very, very, very few editors - or anybody really - use RSS feeds. However, the idea you suggest would work well with feeds, both RSS and email, spinning off our aggregated site which we plan to put out within a few months. Still in beta, as they say, so bear with us :)

Sam:

Does that mean we're not getting married?

*sigh*

Sam said...

David, my love - if ever there was a time for us to get married it would be now. xx

estimated 9 million out LGBT people in the US alone. That estimate reflects only a slightly less thคาสิโนออนไลน์an 4% of the entire population, yet we hear that more than 9% of the population is actually gay. Our community is still struggling for equal rights, to marry legally, to be out without discrimination and all the other legal rights afforded to straight people.
