If you haven't already heard yet, EHow announced they are ending the WCP and will be offering past EHow contributors a buyout of their articles. As of May 31st, if you haven't accepted your buyout, you will lose it and your articles will be deleted. So, if you used to write for EHow and you earn revenue share money there and you haven't yet received an e-mail about the buyout, then you need to go check your account there. Sign into your account and click the Articles tab. Above your articles should be a notice about the program ending. Follow the prompts to find out your buyout.

As for me, I am sad to see this revenue share program go. Since last November, my articles there were earning double their normal rate and my monthly EHow income doubled. At the rate I was going, I would have ended this year with twice the income without having to do a thing. While the buyout offer I received was good, it was about what I'd made in 2010 at EHow, so it's not as good as I probably would have made this year. I know there are a lot of people who will be losing a big source of income from this program ending, and I feel bad for them. At this point in time, I'm not sure I will trust placing my time and effort into any other revenue share program.
However, if you write revenue share articles for EHow through Demand Studios, then you will not be affected by this change. I currently have about 24 articles through there and they are doing fairly well. I doubt if I will be adding any more though.
Oh well, nothing lasts forever. On to the next.... :)
