      Most of us have seen and read one of those web-based magazines, e-zines or e-magazines, that you subscribe to and are sent on a predetermined schedule and delivered to you by email. The Briefme e-magazine will have about 6 to 10 reviews that have been written on a topic by several different editors. Those 6 to 10 articles would have been selected by the editorial staff from all that were submitted about a given topic and then put together as a e-magazine and then sent off to each subscriber. If there is a topic that has not been included in their list then you can e-mail them to suggest the topic:- info@briefme.com. If you are just joining and are worried that you have missed some important issues don't worry because they have an archives section where you can search out past Briefme issues. You can earn $5 for each of your reviews that is accepted and published. If you think you can write reviews of websites, write articles about arts and crafts or if you specialize in writing about food and drink, music or even law and legal issues? and you would like to be paid for your expertise then sign up with briefme.com and become a contributing editor. Good all round knowledge of a topic, writing ability and being committed to the art of good journalism are what is required to become a Briefme editor. They have over 2 million subscriptions with 1100 editors contributing articles and reviews on over 80 different topics. Briefme editors mainly review new sites but still find that some of the older sites tend to keep refreshing their content which some editors will want to keep updating for those that are interested. Each article or site review contained in each e-zine will only be as long as a paragraph hence the name Briefme. This being another requirement to being chosen as an editor, that is can you write your review or article, condense it down to about 75-100 words so that it is packed with as much information as possible but still be readable. <
      br>< br> Can you imagine the feeling you would get from having all those thousands of subscribers to Briefme reading each and every edition of the topic you write about. Why not find out what it is like? They will also let you increase traffic to your own website by including a free link at the bottom of every review that you write and get published. Make sure that you provide your URL when you are applying and that your website is related to the topic on which you are going to write about. No need to worry if you don't have a web address because Briefme will provide a free bio page, where you can list all your favourite articles and reviews, then in all your articles that are published a link, as well as your name, to your bio page will be automatically inserted for all to see. You will get paid quarterly by cheque, Briefme editorial staff may edit your submission if it is on the long side. They prefer it to be no longer than 175 words. They also think that you should just stick to one topic, and if your topic is new to their list then you may have to wait for a few weeks before that article is published as they want at least three editors for that topic before they launch. Copyright remains with you but, under the editor terms, you give Briefme.com the right to publish your work in any form. They pay $0.25 for each subscriber you find them and $.05 on a subscriber from an affiliate referred. So if you enjoy surfing and find you have a flair of writing on some, or all the new sites you come across, and you believe that the content of your reviews are what others would like to learn from, then fill out the form and get evaluated.
