In this week's edition of Friday Fresh, we're doing a little something different. You may have noticed our banner touting our Love. Earn program, and a new section called New Articles By You. New articles on topics as varied as snorkeling and transplanting papaya trees are appearing every day. If you have a subject you consider yourself an expert on, submit a how-to article to WonderHowTo. Once it's been reviewed and approved, you can start earning money from Google AdSense ads that appear in the article. All the revenue from the Google AdSense ads go to you. If you're interested in contributing, all you have to do is get started.
This week, we're featuring a few of the user-contributed articles that we're really excited about.
