How much can I earn?

Payment is in proportion to the number of people who read your articles.

Each article receives a CPM value on publication, determined by the editors score.

The CPM value is the amount you will receive for every 1000 readers. You do not have to wait for an article to receive 1000 readers to be paid, it's just how the CPM value is expressed. Your account is adjusted each time someone reads one of your articles.

A typical CPM value for an article will be around $10, or 1 cent per reader.

As Her Haven grows we will be able to offer awards of $1, $5, and $10 for good articles which are well written with good photos. Extra income can be earned by arranging supporter links.

You can view your account balance on by clicking on "My Account".

How do I request payment?

On the first of each month, if your balance is over $50 (or 50 GBP) an account is created and placed on your Accounts page.

To request payment of a monthly account click on the "details" link, and then "submit invoice".

Remember, in order to receive payment, you must first enter your payment information on your settings page.

Payment is made on the 1st of the following month as long as the invoice is submitted on or before the 10th. This delay is to allow for the time it takes to receive payments from advertisers.

For instance your January account would be created and placed on your accounts page on the 1st of February. If you submitted an invoice before the 10th of Feb payment would be made on the 1st of March. If the invoice was submitted after the 10th of Feb, payment would be made on the 1st of April.

If your balance is less than $50 on the 1st of the month, then it will be carried over to the following month.

How do I make my text bold or italicised?

To bold your text, add ** either side of the word or phrase you would like bold.

i.e. The **box** is big.
The word box will appear in bold.

To write in italics add %% either side of the word or phrase.

i.e. Bourke Street Mall is the %%perfect%% place to go Christmas shopping.

The word perfect will be italicised.

How do I include a link?

To include a link in the text of your article use the following format:

[LINK www.thelinkurl.com The Link Text]

"The Link Text" will become the link that points to www.thelinkurl.com.

Do I need to include an image?

You are not expected to be an expert photographer, but getting a good shot (especially for the main thumbnail) is very important.

If you cannot supply an image of your own, please be very careful when sharing images without permission.

We suggest looking at https://pixabay.com/ to obtain attribution and royalty free images*

*Note that on https://pixabay.com/, images with a watermark are NOT attribution free. Look for images without a watermark.

NB: It is the editor's choice on whether or not to keep your image. We may change it in order to fit the aesthetics of the website.

How do I include an image?

Adding images into your article is a simple process.

First you need to upload the images. Click on the 'Add Images' link, you can then add up to 4 images at one time. Make sure you update any changes made to your article before clicking the link.

Select the images from your harddrive using the Choose File button.

You can then also add any keywords for your image.

Once you have added all the files, click submit.

To use an image copy and paste the [IMAGEX] tag into the text. Replace X with the image number.

If I wanted to place my first image into the article, I would write [IMAGE1]. Make sure there isn't a space between IMAGE and the number.

If you want to add a caption, you just need to include it inside the tag like so: [IMAGEX My caption goes here.]
