Sites To Publish Your Work (Other Than Fabulous OS)

Rate: 6 Flag

 Hi Everyone, 

I haven't been on OS in a while becaue I've been working, working, working! But, I wanted to share a few sites I've discovered where you can publish your own pieces (of course, OS is our top choice, but writers can always use options!).  

 Yahoo Associated Content. Post your own work. They also have an assignment desk looking for writes to write pieces on specific topics like "Poetry- Write A Haiku For Winter" and "Write A Short Western Story" and "Write A Guide To Local Christmas Parades."

Technorati. They revamped their site. It's not very social, but sends blog traffic your way. People looking for content will share your work.

BlogHer. A site for women bloggers. If the editors like your piece, they will feature it and can get thousands of FB & Twitter shares. If the editors REALLY like it, they will syndicate it and pay a small fee. I've been lucky to have several Featured Posts and two syndicated pieces.  

Divine Caroline. A very mainstream, friendly site for women bloggers. Owned by Real Girls Media Network. Categories include "beauty", "style" "parenting." 

 I've had success with all these sites. If you have any to add, please comment!
