I’ve been writing articles for some years, but it’s been a while since I last wrote a new one. Not that I haven’t had any ideas on topics to write on, I just haven’t got around to doing it.
I then visited Article Marketer, and article distribution service I’ve used for a while, to add it there for delayed distribution. When I logged in, I discovered that my distribution membership and expired. I was on a regular PayPal quarterly subscription, so it was a bit of a surprise to find it had expired. After looking at the renewal options, I discovered the reason was that the price had increase. A lot. Practically doubled, in fact, from $39.95 a quarter to $79.95. This is a huge increase, especially as I haven’t been using it much recently.
I also used to get articles from them for my Article Directory, but stopped when they started charging for that too. I’m going to have to think about this before renewing.
In the mean time, there are other services. One I receive a lot of submissions from is SubmitYOURArticle.com. This also isn’t cheap though, it’s actually dearer than Article Marketer at $47/month for Silver Membership.
