This is not a subject; neither is that — 8 Comments

    • Thank you. I really appreciate your comment. I write all of the posts on this and three other blogs. I don’t want to get into licensing my content for other sites, although I’m not ruling it out in the future. It would require me to spend time that I won’t have in the near future on studying how to make it work .

      I suggest you look at Ezine, Articles Base, Idea Marketers, or dozens (hundreds?) of similar article directories. Some of the other content sites that I write for (Associated Content and Factoidz come immediately to mind) also offer some kind of syndication rights. I don’t really know how it works, but if you find content you like on any of those sites, you can easily find their terms. It’s a safe bet that if a content site does not have some prominent information about how to use the content on your own site, you can’t legally do it.

      In most if not all cases, you will be required to use the content without editing it, meaning your site will have duplicate content–and multiple other sites might obtain the same content. If you want to purchase exclusive rights to an article, look at Constant Content.

  1. Thank you, this article ended up being very interesting, We look forward to checking out more of this excellent website.

  2. This is wrong (see what I did there? And I bet the meaning was clear). ‘This’ and ‘that’ are also pronouns – that’s proNOUN, get it?

    • Pronouns are supposed to have antecedents, which your opening sentence lacks. So no, I’m not entirely certain what you’re referring to. My title perhaps? Or the entire post? Anyway, maybe if you had submitted multiple papers to Dr. H, you’d be leery of using those words alone as the subject, too. Thanks for stopping by.
