As many of you, I’ve been on a number of publishing sites, and will be probably be on many more.

TWO

If it is published  resave it with a ‘clue’ so that you know where you put it.  When that site goes down,  or doesn’t pay, or a new site comes along, you republish it and add another clue.

You’re good.

FOUR

There is or will be another site on the horizon.   Prepare
