Morning thoughts on another bill to pay
I just noticed it's time again to renew my Gold Membership here at Author's Den. I checked my account to see when the bill was due and how much it was going to cost. Another bill to pay if I want to keep my membership! Nice thought along with my first cup of coffee this morning. Why in the world was I paying those prices anyway, especially now that I'm unemployed and the unemployment checks have run out?
I thought about this and looked through what Author's Den was offering me in return for my money for the next three months! We really need to do this from time to time. After reading through all the benefits I'm getting in return for my dollars, I was anxious to give them my money! Author's Den is doing so much for me and taking so much pressure and stress out of my life. That in itself is worth a lot to me.
Another cup of coffee and more reading! For less than 27 cents a day I have a place to display my work. I have a place to feature my novel so that the public can see it. I have my own little Website here and it's so easy to use! Authors Den does all the work and advertising for me. I have a place to store so many things in my storage den. This makes it accessible to me no matter what computer I'm using or where I am working from! I love that.
Authors Den makes it so easy for someone to view the first chapter of my book and they can purchase it right here if they want! I have found that listing such things here on A/D is so simple. I love working in a place that does all the hard stuff for me. I can zip right into my den and post a new work in a jiffy and it's there for the world to see.
I could go on and on about what this 27 cents a day buys me as a Gold Member, but that might get boring! One of the great things it buys me is advertising! I did a search under my name and was amazed, no shocked, at how many times my name came up under the search and most leading right back here to my Den! If any of you have ever tried to get into the details of how to get the search engines to work well for you then you realize how difficult it can be. Author's Den does it all for me and I just sit here, drinking my coffee and watch it happen!
Being able to view my page stats and my book sale stats and views is an added bonus that helps me tremendously! It's a feature I would not know how to work without.
Is that money worth what I'm getting in return from Author's Den? It's worth every penny to me right now as an author and I just realized I've spent more money on my morning coffee made right here at home than a full days use of my Gold Membership has cost me. I may give up my coffee but I won't give up my Gold Membership!

|There are many valuable aspects of being a Gold Member on the Den. I enjoy the viewing, the comments, the set-up, and the instant access as well. And it's easy to add new items to my library for public display.
However, the Den does not give out editing.
You might want to check a thing or two in your article above in regards to spelling.

|Well written article containing some valid reasons why membership here at AD is beneficial. Your 27 cents a day point is a good one for the money. Thanks Sherry.|

|Good read, especially when you spell out that the gold membership only costs 27 cents a day. Sometimes, we don't think about expenses enough that way. R|

|Well I thought about this too and decided that the friendship that I found here was invaluable. Sometimes I just read because I need to find something that piques my interest and enjoy. Like reading poetry especially on Sundays when you can't get to church. And some of my work is being noticed so I guess a year from now when I sit down it will be a matter of what level to go to.|
