My blogs accept advertising, ads and links Writing for more than 40 years Winner of Sunday Times Literary Award for Confessions of a Gambler

Is it worth writing articles for the net?
With this writer it has become an addiction. I make real money writing novels and in fact a publisher is waiting for me to start writing my eleventh novel. I don’t know what it is, but I love checking my cents growing daily. It is pure pleasure and an addiction and I don’t know why I continue. Depending on the site the instructions are easy to understand but after a month of trying to get Ad Sense and Chitika earnings it is virtually impossible.
Experts Column pays decently and shines way above five other sites I also write for. However, the downside of this kind of writing is that it is not your writing alone that makes bucks. You have to figure out how to use links and back links, how to place widgets, and how to navigate your way through a maze of information. You also have to search for things as some sites are not so easy to understand. Today I contacted tech support at one of these sites and asked when I was going to see earnings. I was told that I had to wait. Finally I was approved as a publisher and was instructed to write until I realized a lot of time had gone by and that I still do not have ads running on my site. When I did get approved for an account with Chitika which includes revenue from ads running on my blog, I am writing and writing and just today was told by a friend that the site would not even respond if you had below a number of clicks. Worse, I had not gotten any instructions that I would have to pick the ads and place them or that the ad running process had even started.
Out of frustration I am writing to all of you to say that I am not going to waste my time anymore and will start working on my next novel. I am busting my brain to write great articles every day and the sum total of my sweat resulted in only twelve dollars if I add revenue from all the sites. Pony up, Chitika. I am close to walking away. I mean, how can you write all day for eighty cents? A frustrated writer.
Is giving birth at ten years of age acceptable
When ten year old girls give birth, it is surely something to make you think and ask what the world is coming to and where we are headed. It is not a normal society when rituals include wicked practices. And there is great secrecy around the event of the girl who has recently given birth and the questions have to be answered. Was she raped? Was it consensual sex? Is it a custom of a particular tribe and therefore acceptable?
It is not acceptable when a ten year girl whose body is hardly developed has to give up her dolls and her childhood to take care of a baby – and the parents are not mentioned at all and the man can hide behind the double sided fabric of his culture. It is unbelievable the kinds of rituals young girls from different tribes have had to participate in, even young men, just to satisfy elders. If someone from a ‘respectable’ tribe asked you to perform fellatio on old men of the tribe to please your elders, would you do it? Yet there is a tribe in South America that requires this for a young man’s initiation.
According to the Guinness Book of Records the world’s youngest mother in a medically documented case was in 1939 in Peru when Lina Medina gave birth to a baby at the age of five years, eight months. The girl who gave birth a few weeks ago was ten and is from the Wayuu tribe which has its own justice system and refuse to co-operate in under-age sex investigation. Under Colombia law sexual relations with a child of fourteen or younger is a crime punishable by at least nine years in prison. Sex with an under fourteen year old is all right? How’s that for morality? Not only does the offender have the tribe’s protection, because he is fifteen he cannot be identified. When the ten year old girl had the baby, the doctor said she barely understood what was happening when she gave birth. He added that he had to go with a caesarean because at that age the pelvis was still growing and too small for the fetus to pass through the vaginal canal.
