So I bought tons of original handwritten articles and invested in several proxies and accounts. This could have easily been my 5000$/month game plan when scaled up more. I was waiting to get paid on Yahoo contributor with over 80 articles up and then I see this message today. As part of our ongoing effort to sharpen our focus, on July 31, 2014, Voices.Yahoo.com will be shut down; on August 15, we will make the final Performance Payment before Contributor.Yahoo.com closes. Thankfully I don't have all eggs in one basket or it would have been a big blow. My learning and advice to everyone from this is that you got to be careful while scaling on commonly known methods.
