GET PAID FOR POSTINGS NEWS STORIES

Getting paid to do the following:
ORIGINAL MATERIAL YOU WRITE
The Oregon Herald does not pay for your original stories. There are no exceptions. We pay a small amount only for posting part of stories from other sources with a link back to the source and under Fair Use guidelines.
After registration and email verification, use our templates to publish a story. If you can read English fairly well then you should have no problem. But for some it’s going to take practice to get it right and be published. Others can get published in just three minutes. If you can follow simple templates and have a good eye for what looks good, this will be easy. We need to write help files and make videos to help you better understand the process.
We are a non-profit, non-commercial news publishing business. We will not lower our journalistic standards just to publish. The ability to publish includes the following kinds of people:
MAKE MONEY BY POSTING ALREADY PUBLISHED NEWS STORIES
Those who want to post stories from other sources and be paid for each story published. We don’t pay much, just a few cents per story but it’s a way for people who have nothing better to do to get involved with the latest news stories. Just find a recent interesting story anywhere on the net and post it on our online newspaper. We give you links to existing news sites.
Maybe you want to post mostly inspirational stories from the last few years, or stories about covid, global warming, and history. Or perhaps you want to be our BIOGRAPHY expert and post biographies. There are tens of thousands just waiting to be published.
PUBLISHING FOR MONEY
In this case you are NOT required to actually write stories. You simply gather news and stories found on the internet and post each one using our templates. You can practice so don't be worried. We use FAIR USE guildelines so we generally post only a small part of the news story. That helps the original source and also helps us.
We will pay you to post stories. You do this online, from your home. You do not need to be a writer. But you do need to read English and understand English fairly well. You also need to follow our prepared templates. And that will make your job easy. We pay after you have earned at least $20. We pay by the story you submit and if it is published. Each time your story is published, the score and amount you have earned will be displayed to you.
In most cases, you will use only part of a story from an outside source and automatically provide a link back to the story source. You ALWAYS need to add the source and give credit to the author, and image credit as well. Our templates make it easy. Those original story sources get more traffic and we get to post interesting stories and links to the original story for our readers. We follow Fair Use guidelines. We require you to be professional and accurate; and to use standard journalistic practices. We all make mistakes, even the editor, as you will find in some of our stories.
You will be required to post the entire story and save it. However, we will automatically truncate it at about a third or so, depending on the story category and source. That’s an option we have yet to write but it’s not difficult. Once the story has been cut and pasted into our template from the source or if you write a story well by reading several sources and give credit when needed and check everything for accuracy and you are totally satisfied, you can then submit it for publication. We will approve if we are satisfied. If not, you can continue to work on it. By default you will include images for the story. That’s easy. All you need is the image source and paste it into our template. Our templates do all the work.
Those who wish to post announcements and news releases. As long as the story is real, well written with the correct information then we will probably publish it. This includes political and legislative announcements, meetings, gatherings, etc. In fact just about any kind of announcement for your area, anywhere.
Perhaps you have a complaint about something. Maybe you what to write about global warming, climate change, politics, COVID-19. There is so much.
BLOGS are popular. Get yourself published where your history and ideas will be saved for future reading.
Writers who want to publish a news story or blog. So here’s your chance to become a writer. And get your name published. However we will not lower our journalistic professionalism. If you can’t spell or know how to write a decent sentence then do not choose this option. It’s only for good riders. And people who will follow our basic guidelines.
We have written a comprehensive set of templates for you to use, to make it easy for you. As long as you can follow those guidelines you should have minimal problems. However at first you are bound to make mistakes. If you make too many mistakes and this is not for you then we will let you know and block your access if you are here to cause problems. That may sound harsh but we are serious about quality.
As an example, perhaps you only want to write biographies. And post them. We will offer a specialized template just for biographies. In all cases we need to follow posted copyright notices. If the story is copyrighted by the source then we may not use it. For biographies we use Wikipedia mostly and each biography story has a full legal notice of the source from Wikipedia.
Please understand that we are now just getting started for the first part of September 2021. There will be bugs and errors and changes. So consider yourself somewhat of a beta tester. Just report errors with a screenshot back to us.
We plan to write comprehensive instructions and later perhaps provide videos for those who would like to more easily understand what’s going on and how to do it. We will also need a volunteer manager to sift through submissions and approve or not.
