Find Out If Your Work Was Published By Using Issuu.com


I stumbled across Issuu.com when I was hunting down my name and wanted to share it with you. It's a publishing service like BlueToad, only you can put in your name (best to put it in quotes), and magazine covers will come up that most likely contain an article of yours because you may have simultaneously submitted a regional parenting magazine. You can then click on the cover and see your piece! Using Issuu.com I was able to find a piece of mine that was published in 2010 that I wasn't aware was going to be used at that time. I usually find at least one piece per month that was used without my permission.

So you'd put your name in the search bar like this: "Kerrie McLoughlin"

If I find what I call “borrowed work,” I pop off an email to let them know I found it and I include my invoice, usually for $35-$40, because I think that’s a pretty fair rate currently. Of course I do check my book 1st (7th edition coming soon) because I don’t want to send a $35 invoice if there a publication that pays $50 for reprints! I make sure to thank them for using my work and ask them to please next time ask me first just in case there are competitors in the area who might have also snapped at the same piece only they were considerate enough to let me know first.

Happy searching!

  4. It’s exhausting to seek out knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
    It's best to take part in a contest for probably the greatest posts on the web. I'll recommend this website! An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I think that it is best to write extra on this subject, it won't be a taboo subject but usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers micro influencers singapore

  5. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.back pain remedies
