Alternative to Ehow? Evaluating InfoBarrel

Continuing saga from previous post.....So when I got the news of my articles (including my highest earner-GRRR!!)being deleted on ehow I was a little miffed. Okay, I was more like, "What the @#%&!!" Anyway after reading some posts in their forums from other writers who had been through an article sweep before, I settled down and told myself it would be okay and I should just consider this a learning experience and move on--sort of like the way I felt when my 401K shriveled up. There was nothing I could have done in hindsight but in time things will get better, so just have patience.

Just as we are told to do with our finances, we need to do the same with our writing efforts. Don't put all of your articles or content in one basket since that basket may tip over and leave you with a big mess! So, as I was digesting the wise words posted in the forums by a fellow ehow writer I decided to sign-up for another article writing site and see how it would compare to ehow.

I was referred to infobarrel by an ehow friend and have so far submitted only one article. It was a rewrite of my most profitable ehow article that got deleted. I had to do a rewrite because as mentioned in my previous post I had not saved any of my ehow articles to my computer. Let's not go there, again...see earlier post for details. Anyway, I'm still trying to navigate the infobarrel site and I must admit it seems cumbersome compared to ehow. I'm willing to give myself some time to get acclimated and post a few more articles. Infobarrel says they share 75% of the ad revenue with the writer and they also offer a referral system that I'm really excited about--you get 2% of your referrals ad revenue as well. I'm not sure what percentage ehow shares with us and I know they don't offer referral commissions so that aspect of infobarrel interests me as well.
