You guys know how much I like writing for Examiner.com -- in the past year I've made around 30k with them and therefore, I've urged lots of other writers, designers, etc. to sign up with them.
One of my friends is a very talented designer who runs -IZE ON DESIGN, a site that showcases her fabulous design work.
Naturally I thought she'd be a great fit for Examiner. She applied and was accepted as the Cleveland Modern Furniture Examiner at http://www.examiner.com/x-65785-Cleveland-Modern-Furniture-Examiner -- but last night I talked to her via Facebook and discovered that her articles haven't appeared since Thursday!
I don't know if this is just some specific problem with a few Examiners or many, and she's already sent a support ticket for help and I will update this site with more news as we hear it. But in the meantime, I wanted to know how the other new Examiner.com writers are doing.
If you just started writing for Examiner.com around August or September 2010, are your articles appearing online? I want to make sure the folks I tell about Examiner are having a positive experience, not a bad one. Since I'm still able to publish just fine, and I see lots of other Examiner pieces flowing through Google News, I assumed everyone else was still able to publish as well.
I don't spend too much time in the forums -- I find that forums can sometimes turn into a cauldron of bellyaching, with the loudest complainers sometimes taking over, so I usually spend that time doing other things. I only pop in every blue moon -- specifically, after the recent controversial switch to the Drupal 7 CMS platform.
Let me know if you just got in to Examiner, and please leave me a comment letting me know if you're able or not able to publish. Thanks! Just curious..
