Sharing Paying Markets

For a while I’ve been sharing the paying markets I run across on the side of this blog — see the line that says “Thursday’s Market Watch”

Well, that feed comes from del.icio.us, a site meant for sharing bookmarks. Since I’ve started using del.icio.us, other bookmarking options have appeared on the horizon. I’m planning to keep using del.icio.us, but I’ve been saving my bookmarks to another site, as well.

I’ve been using diigo for the past week or so for the same purpose as del.icio.us, although hopefully not with quite the same result. The difference between diigo and del.icio.us is that you can easily create groups, to which all members can share bookmarks — or, in this case, markets.

I’m inviting anyone who runs across a market for freelance writers to submit it to the FreelanceWritingMarkets group. For the most part, anything goes — magazines, websites, book publishers — anyone who takes freelance submissions (and pays for them!) is good.

You don’t need to be a member of Diigo, or del.icio.us, to look through markets, but to share bookmarks to the FreelanceWritingMarkets group, you will need to join Diigo. Joining took me maybe ten minutes, and is pretty easy to do. If you do run into trouble, email me — I’d be happy to help you get set up.

    I have to thank you for all of those bookmarks. I guess I never realized there were so many attainable opportunities just sitting out there! Now I need to buckle down and start submitting things….

    Glad to help. If I might be so bold, I’d suggest starting with the bookmarks tagged “movies” (based on your website). Tags are the only way I can avoid going crazy with so many bookmarks!
