Introduction:Writers need to protect their online articles and income. If something happen to you today, what would happen to all your online articles? What would happen to all the money made from your articles?
You should have a backup copy of all articles. A printout of each article would be nice, but that would also take up too much room. Articles can also be saved to disc or to an online storage like Google Documents.
Kept in a safe locked place, keep a list of the sites that you writ on along with login and password information. If something was to ever happen, loss of memory to loss of life, that list can help you or your family to access your articles and the money the articles make.
You have backup copies and a list of where and how to access everything but would family know what to do if something happen. Let them know ahead of time that if, God forbid, something would happen where to find your list.
Have instructions written down of what to do. Each site has rules of who to contact and what people have to do. Make an instruction booklet for your family to follow. This will help the family though a difficult time and make sure your money gets to your family.
When sites update or change the rules, make sure you take the time to fully read the rules and term. Although reading the terms and rules are not fun, it is very important. Update any need information in your instruction booklet.
Protecting your articles is very important. Many sites will allow family to collect from the articles if something should happen to you. By knowing the rules and keeping updated instructions your articles can continue to earn for your family even after you are gone.
