I've never heard of Yuwie.com. Is it another writing site or a bookmarking site?
I'll check out the yahoo board to see what you posted.
I like AC's new look. I think it looks more professional and I am so thankful that they got rid of the top rated articles section.
It's not that I am not writing for them anymore, I am just stepping back from there and focusing on Suite.
I think writers need to consider their needs and desires when choosing a company. For me, Suite matches my needs so much better. I never started writing because of the money. I was looking more from the aspect of self-improvement and building self-esteem. For me, Suite meets those needs in a way AC never has. I learned more in publishing just a few articles at Suite than I ever learned for the 2 months I was at AC. Honestly, I had NO CLUE about web-writing when I first started out. (I wish I could go back and edit my articles at AC! I cringe when I read them now. I am proud of my writing style, but really it wasn't writing well for the web, KWIM?) And I have to admit that I was hurt by some of the mean-spirited nature when all of my content was down-rated. Even though I knew that ratings mean nothing, it did nothing for my already low self-esteem. The editors at Suite have provided constructive criticism while also really complimenting me on specific aspects of my writing. I am a much more confident writer because of the support of the editors and my fellow Suite writers. I have a great deal of respect for the type of business Suite is running.
My intention is to learn as much as I can through the resources and ever-so-helpful editors at Suite, and then start applying what I learn to AC. I don't want to start writing for them again though, until I feel like I am a *good* web-writer, and not just a mediocre writer. Since you can't edit at AC, I want to write when I can produce quality web-written pieces.
I'll say this again, I don't want this to sound like a bash against AC. AC and Suite are just very different businesses, and Suite is meeting my needs better than AC at this time. I will be back eventually.
