A Funny Moment On A Saturday In March
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

After fixing my coffee one chilly Saturday morning in March, I sat down in front of my laptop. First, I checked my email. I was eager to see if I had any new Twitter followers or if I had emails requiring my attention. Finding nothing of interest, I then logged on to Street Articles.

After logging onto the site, I noticed that my rank had slipped one spot lower from where it had been. I laughed to myself when I heard Ryan Seacrest's voice in my head, as though I was a singer on the "American Top 40" chart.

"...And falling a spot to number 19 is Hollie Townsend," I imagined Mr. Seacrest saying. I love "American Top 40". I listen to the show each week, eager to hear the songs on the chart and hoping that my favorite songs, such as "Daylight", "Hall of Fame", and "It's Time", will rise rather than fall. Although I love the show, I am relieved that the Street Articles site works differently than the weekly countdown.

An author's articles go up or down in rank in terms of readership, but they will never disappear, the way songs on a countdown will. The author's rank also goes up or down, depending on how many articles he submits, but he will not disappear from the site.

Street Articles is an awesome site. I love the way I get direct feedback on my work and the way I can comment on the work of others. I also love the excitement and happiness I feel when I learn that my latest article has been approved and can now be posted to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I also like learning that I have another follower at Street Articles.

Writing for Street Articles has helped me. I have learned to strive to improve my work. I have learned to appreciate and learn from the feedback of others. I have also learned to push myself to work harder so that I can increase my author rank on the site and increase views of my articles. I am always interested to see the articles at the top of my list. Those, I know, are the ones that people are currently the most interested in.

I am always looking for ideas for new articles, and I never know what will inspire my next work. It might be a song I hear on the radio, something I see on television, or even a sign I pass in my travels.

Readers can look forward to seeing many more articles from me, and I hope that they will enjoy them. If I work hard, I might perhaps hit Number 1 on the Street Articles author chart one day.

Hi. I like SA as well because of the restrictions against advertising. This site is about writing authentic content and it's a great way to find your voice and have a discussion while imparting information.
