I got a new channel on Examiner - Healthy Food!
What's new with you guys??????
I am sorry I haven't given many updates regarding Examiner. There was a reason for that.
Sadly, a few months back when I posted an update about my income I had a nasty comment left by a fan of another writer on Examiner. I did not post the comment; not because I was afraid of what she wrote, but just because I wanted to make sure I had my facts straight before I did.
There is a writer on Examiner that was featured in the news last year. She has a bit of a fan base. There has been a huge amount of speculation on the amount of content she produces and whether or not she contracts out. This is a clear violation of the TOS for Examiner. Whether this person that attacked me was just a fan or an outsourced writer is something I won't ever know, nor do I care to find out.
What bothered me most is that this person linked a name and a website. She apparently shares the name with a real estate agent. It linked me to their website. I emailed the real estate agent. She was nice enough about the mistaken identity but was upset this person was using her website. I ended up finding the poster on Facebook and that is how I found she was connected to one of the top writers.
I contacted Examiner to let them know. She threatened me. Examiner told me not to worry and that they would look into it.
Since then I have refrained from posting because I don't want my personal website to be used for a sounding board for angry people.
I went ahead and posted the comment so you can see how ridiculous it is.

As for an update, I am not sure I will be posting numbers anymore. But I will tell you that for being a full-time graduate student and working on writing a few hours here and there when I can and being able to make 1000s a month is a-ok in my book.
