The Cost of Living in the UK Soars – have you thought of selling your story to make some much needed cash?
As if the covid lockdowns weren’t bad enough, now the cost of living is set to soar to add yet more insult to injury. Virtually everything is going up, if it hasn’t already – energy bills, fuel costs, food, rent and mortgages, you name it! The war hasn’t helped for sure, but there are other factors at work here too. The price of everything increases when inflation goes up, and inflation has already risen by 6.2% in the year up to February 2022, and this is expected to increase even more, reaching 8% by the spring.
Energy Prices Up
Energy prices have already been creeping up over the past few months, but in April the price cap which limits how much energy companies can charge customers is set to be lifted, which will result in a staggering 54% increase in energy prices. This is absolutely scandalous and will affect everyone in the country. Some people still haven’t recovered from the covid lockdowns, with loss of income and businesses going under, and having to resort to weekly visits to the food bank just to survive.
Because of all this, any extra source of income, I’m sure you will agree, is welcomed with open arms. But perhaps you have never considered this one – selling your story to a magazine?
This is not as scary as it sounds, and in fact many people have benefited enormously financially from doing this, and even if you don’t think you have a story worth selling, read on to find out more and you might change your mind…
Everyone Has a Story
If you think about it, almost everyone has a story, and whilst some are tragic or highly unpleasant experiences that people have had, many are also fun and uplifting. The more serious subject matters that qualify for a story would be if you have survived abuse, or a cheating partner – perhaps he ran off with your best friend, or maybe even your best friend ran off with your dad? Has your mum or dad had a sex change or come out as being gay? Have you been the victim of a romance scammer? Perhaps you had to take someone to court, or had health issues that you would like to share? It could also be a success story like losing a large amount of weight – these stories are always interesting and inspiring to readers.
On a lighter note, we are always looking for stories about people with unusual lifestyles, like for example the dog loving couple who have 19 greyhounds. Are you also an animal lover? Maybe your house is overrun with cats, or even exotic pets like snakes or lizards. Maybe you have an unconventional sex life. Anything could qualify as a story that magazines would want to put in their publications for people to enjoy reading about.
More Money For Your Story
Once you think you have a story to sell, the next step is to approach a magazine. This can be a very daunting prospect, so that is exactly what we are here for. When you go through us instead, we will approach all the top respected womens’ magazines so you don’t have to (with your permission of course), and you will also get more money for your story than if you went direct. As we are a totally free service you get to keep 100% of your earnings. So if you have been told that your story is worth £2,000, you will receive £2,000, it’s as simple as that. Another advantage of dealing with us is that we take a more personal approach and you will not have to deal with multiple different people at a magazine.
We will tell you straight away if we think your story is worthy of being published, so we will not waste any of your time. We are respectful and guide you through the whole process, making it as simple and painless as possible. You will feel totally at ease. It begins with a conversation with one of our staff members who will ask you questions, and your story will be written by a professional writer. You will of course be able to approve your story once it has been written, with any necessary revisions being made. We do require real names to be used unless we are unable to for legal reasons or there are children involved. Also, we would need you to supply us with photographs of the people involved to help tell your story.
So if you could do with some extra cash (who couldn’t?) – why not get in touch with us and see what we can do. You have nothing to lose!
