Confessions of the Professions Now Supports Contributor Accounts
December 9, 2019 – Since our beginning seven years ago, we began soliciting articles through several sources to obtain unique articles, as well as wrote them ourselves. In our first year, through Craigslist and Fiverr, we received a few dozen articles that helped solidify our vision for the website. We then discovered MyBlogGuest and MyBlogU which helped escalate us to even more articles. After we began to slowly relax our posting, we began receiving emails from contributors weekly, equivalent anywhere from 5 to 10 posts per week, and as much as 50 per week. Over all, we have received over 2,000 articles from all over the world.
The processing and scheduling of these articles takes time, as this is not a full-time job for anyone (and certainly not me), as there is no payment involved, although we do charge for priority publications, less than 5% of our contributors are actually in a rush to have their articles out. Fortunately, there are those few that do need priority and are willing to pay. This compensation allows us to rush your article so that it is published immediately.
The emails are plentiful and great, and for now, our plan is to keep Confessions of the Professions free to read and free for contributions, while also charging a fee to those who wished to have their articles out faster. We have been looking for a way to make article submission even easier for our contributors. We feel that by allowing our contributors to submit their articles and do the work of formatting and editing, including uploading any photos that are needed, we will be able to push your articles out faster. While we will still be accepting your articles by email, we do plan to inform you about the ability to sign up for an account.
We understand that you have many other sources you can go to for free or you can publish on your own social media accounts, but you have chosen our website to host your article, at least for the next 50 years or so, as we express our own thoughts and words, and seek to understand our purpose of working, going to work, being at work, and working for… something.
Hope to keep it going. We are happy that you understand our vision and are contributing to our site. This is why we cannot, in good faith, ever charge anyone to publish on the site. Therefore, we will keep it going for as long as we can. If you choose to help us by paying a small fee for immediate publication, we appreciate your contribution to Confessions of the Professions very much.

An overview of the new Confessions of the Professions service:
We are always looking to improve and make Confessions of the Professions an interesting and unique service that everyone enjoys reading. We feel this method of handling articles will now serve a great community who wants to see their articles published in a more timely manner. Free will not be given immediate publication and will still be placed in the queue, while the proriority publications are now immediate: they will be published before we’ve even had a chance to review them! So please make sure you format your priority articles the way you want them to look as WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), with the ability to edit your articles for up to 48 hours!
We hope you enjoy this new service which is currently in beta for us!
