  1. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out with this. As far as I know, many writers on eHow have automatically been selected to write for DS- check your email.

  2. I received this same email and being new to Ehow, I am really not sure what it means! I'm not a part of Demand Studios, just Ehow and I want to continue earning money with it and writing articles. So, what should I do? Thanks!

  3. @ ApachesPrincess:

    I would suggest that you apply to write for Demand studios like I did. If you are approved (hired) you will be able to continue doing what you are doing :)
