Do you frequently suggest your own articles? The ones that they have listed as available and wanted are WAY beyond me, like "How to Build a Robotic Arm."

(??????????????)

Those of you who frequently write on DS, do you do research or do you suggest your own?

Thanks!

Uh oh. I'm bumping this because I need help as soon as you can! My two suggested articles were approved today, and any help you can give would be very much appreciated!

Hi there!

I've been writing for DS since August..though not nearly as much any more due to the drop in price of suggested titles and the lack of doable provided titles.
My advice:
Be straight to the point. If there is something you can say in five words instead of ten then do so.

Be clear..add pictures if it would make things easier to understand.

Their template is super easy. Just break everything down into small steps...start each step with action; think verbs.

Add some links and info to the tips area at the bottom.

Good luck!

Thanks thanks THANKS!!!

What does your word count usually look like?

Yes, I noticed that the suggested title pay is only 5, as opposed to the 15 or 20 of the articles.
