What is happening on Ehow- Demand Studios?

It has been a while since my last ehow events blog post. Let me explain why it has been so long. I have been waiting for my ehow account to transfer over to Demand Studios. Finally I received a message stating the ehow transition was complete. For everyone who is wondering what it is like to be at Demand Studios, it is very confusing and frustrating at first.

I just submitted my first article for review on Demand Studios. Everyone cross your fingers that I don't have to re-write it over and over again. I heard that everyone's first articles that get submitted don't get accepted right away. The "How to" writing format is a little confusing on Demand Studios and it will take me awhile to get use to it. I highly doubt I will be publishing how to articles left and right like I did on Ehow. For those who do write several articles on DS, please share your tips and tricks with everyone. It may just be a publishing format that writers need to get use to. How many articles have you published on Demand Studios?

Ehow earnings are dropping dramatically with the new transition. I still have my remaining 123 articles posted on ehow and I have noticed that I will not reach my goal of $50 a month that I had worked so hard for. I have also noticed that my articles are dropping in the search engine listings. Could this be because they are re-writing everyone's articles? I feel like my ehow titles are being snatched away from me. Does anyone else feel or notice the same thing? Did you guys keep your articles published on ehow?

Ehow Events Featured Blog Visitor!
Some of you may have noticed that there isn't a featured visitor this week for my blog. This is only because I haven't been posting for awhile and therefore I haven't had many visitors. This week I will be posting more on this ehow events blog and will be looking for featured blog visitors for next week. For those who don't remember, the featured blog visitor gets there photo and link posted at the top left of this blog for a whole week. The featured visitor will be chosen by the most active and helpful visitor. Please let me know if you have went out of your way to provide a backlink to Also, if you are chosen for the featured visitor, I will post your photo with a link to your ehow articles. If for any reason you no longer have ehow articles, let me know if you would like your blog or website link posted instead.

Comments are helpful to other online writers. I am looking forward to hearing how you are doing with the ehow transition to Demand Studios. You can share your latest articles in the comment boxes and I will enjoy reading them.


  1. Getting ready to write my first article for Demand, but the site is down! Sound familiar?! lol The titles are not very inspiring, unless you are a mechanic. But I will give it a try. I need to work more on my one whole blog. I need to start more blogs! This is a terrific blog- as are all of your blogs. Good luck, Tammy and wish me luck too! : )

  2. Hey Tammy,
    Glad to hear that you finally got your sign in information and you wrote your first article. There is a learning curve with DS but I am sure you will do well. Just follow the guidelines. If you get a rewrite from a CE don't fret. Just do the rewrite and look at it as a learning experience.

  3. @AspiringFreelanceWriter- Good Luck to you to and thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. I wrote quite a few articles for DS a while ago before the big eHow change. The first few were a little traumatizing, but after I had written about three or four, I stopped getting rewrites.

    Also, my eHow earnings haven't gone down. I have been editing a few of my articles though and adding resource links to support them.

    Congrats on writing your first DS article.

  5. Thank-you CM and Alicia for the congrats. Hopefully writing for DS will be worth it. Good Luck!

  6. Tammy, I have 12 approved articles now and 2 waiting for review. I am worried about one of the articles because it was a bad choice because the instructions are confusing without photos. The one I am referring to is a rewrite and I am afraid they will reject this one.
    Still learning and when I get rewrites I feel like I will never learn enough. I am really glad to see you at DS and I love your blog.
