Please help me with this article idea receives over 30,000 unique visitors per month, yet the front page is severely lacking in my opinion. In addition there is a tremendous amount amount of wisdom and knowledge here that could reach more people and spur wonderful dialogue if it was created in article form. What I’m planning to do is create a place where members and guests of can submit articles. Articles that are accepted will then be visible on the front page of this website and be able to be commented on and discussed here in the forums. The first 25 articles that are accepted will receive compensation of $20.00 each via Paypal. Thereafter, authors will not receive any monetary compensation, only the benefits gained from the article which include but are not limited to:

  1. Getting your perspective across. Educating the public.
  2. Name recognition. As mentioned, more than 30,000 people visit this site per month.
  3. Each article can have a small tag line at the end which can include a link to your website. has a PR4 and is very authoritative in the eyes of Google.
  4. The first 25 accepted articles will come with a $20.00 compensation.

C. You may have a three sentence tag (bio) line at the end of the article saying who you are. It may include one link to your website.
D. Articles will be open for comment and discussion, so you must be prepared for any sort of feedback.
