    I see articles online all the time and some are quite interesting. Since I’ve written quite a few articles myself, and even published a few books, it could be helpful for me to get my name out there by presenting my articles. How would I go about putting them online for everyone to access, and could I make money posting them? This may be a silly question but, do people generally seek copyright for their online articles? Thanks..

    In the awesome scheme of things you actually receive a B+ for effort and hard work. Where you lost me was on all the details. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more correct at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did do the job. Your text is rather convincing and this is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily notice the leaps in reason you come up with, I am not confident of just how you seem to unite the ideas which in turn help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I shall subscribe to your position however wish in the foreseeable future you connect the dots much better.
