MILESTONES FOR MEMBERSHIP
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS

If you are good at math you will notice that at the 1,000 user level the total member-generated revenue converts to pretty much a wash meaning the upside potential from the first hire (Director of Donations and Philanthropic Support), will be towards supporting and paying the journalists - That's YOU!

COMPETITIVE PEER-REVIEW MODEL FOR WRITING ASSIGNMENTS

As of May 18, 2022, we have 1,473 memes and titled responsions in our quarterly publication alone. This is one repository of four currently available for writers, like you, to expand your thoughts and engage. Each one of these stub articles represents an opportunity to contribute and will be updated via trending topic tags. For new and inexperienced writers you may want to develop your skills and ranking by contributing to the topics that speak to you, that is if you are listing to your writer's voice.

Once there is a maximum total of twelve contributing authors per article, the editorial team circulates the articles among all twelve contributors to participate in a peer-review process of selecting the best article. That's right, you choose! You get two votes, conceivably one vote will be for your own work, but it doesn't have to be, and the other is for an article of your choice. Since you only have 11 articles to read, on a subject that you are already intimate with, one of two things will happen. First, the internal critique that you experience in relation to the other articles, will be your biggest teacher. Secondly, you have a one in twelve chance to earn an industry of $1 per word for your freelance journalist submissions. Wait it gets better. Subscription models work well simply because of the consistency of ongoing reliable income. Our payout model is no different, it's sponsorship-based and ongoing.

So, you contribute an article between 500 and 1,000 words, and it's voted among your peers as the best of the lot. Now what? How do you get paid? Remember that sponsorship page that we helped set up when you first signed up as a planksip journalist? The one where other people, businesses, community supporters, family members or fans can support you directly for your efforts? For each winning article, you receive $10 per month with no expiration date as long as you continue to meet the minimum submitter requirements of an article a month. I don't know about you but writing only two articles a day for a month with only a 20% success rate would net you $2,400 per year! Keep that up and double your success rate, which comes naturally with practice, and you will be well on your way to a full-time salary as a planksip journalist.
