DotWriter Review

Actually, this is going to be short and sweet.  I started putting some articles on DotWriter because they weren’t selling on Constant-Content, and some that I wrote for DotWriter.  It became obvious that their traffic is quite small compared to Constant-Content, as articles languished on the site for ages without selling, even at low prices.

DotWriter takes a smaller cut off the top, but it’s more than offset by the lower prices offered there and the light traffic that depresses sales.  When I became concerned about some articles on the site having long lifespans and becoming somewhat out of date, I realized that, unlike at Constant-Content, I couldn’t edit or download them for updating.

Worse, repeated requests to support for some explanation or the ability to remove them were greeted with silence.  I can’t get them to respond to requests to remove or reduce the price of out-of-date articles.

I would recommend sticking with the more highly-trafficked Constant-Content site, even with the higher fees.  At least there you still own your articles, can remove them, or you can edit them as necessary to make them more saleable.  As far as getting any response to a serious challenge to  DotWriter policies and procedures, you’re more likely to meet Santa Claus at the North Pole.

Great Bluetooth Keyboard for Android

Actually, the Logitech K480 works with the iPhone as well.  I was using an Apple keyboard with my Samsung Note 3, but it began to act erratically, so I went to BestBuy and found this Logitech K480.

I’ve always liked Logitech products, especially their wireless and bluetooth mice.  This keyboard is no exception.  It was a fast setup and functions perfectly.  I’m writing post using it now with my Note 3 propped in the slot.

Cover Article for Washington Gas Magazine

Jim Kimmons Articles Washington Gas Magazine

“Energy of the City” is a magazine published by Washington Gas, a natural gas utility serving more than one million customers in the Northeast.  I appreciated the opportunity to write for their Spring Issue, released in June, 2010.

One article is a cover feature, “Top Reasons to Remodel,” and the other was “Change Your Focus When Looking for a New Home.”  I’ve taken the cover and the articles and placed them in this PDF, as this is a really nice magazine with some wonderful images as well.
