Lasitha is the former #1 Men’s single in Sri Lanka, with a world ranking of 112. Christine previously held world top 150 in world’s women singles.

Steemhouse Publishing has hit a significant milestone with the arrival of the proof of the first book they are producing – ‘High Kill’ by Diane Ryan…


@platforms launches a ‘Pay to Write’ service

Founded by @steemitqa and @jglake, @platforms is launching a new service where they will pay you directly for articles you write.

The idea is to potentially pay you a flat fee on topics you could potentially write about, or are already writing about. You can consider this “ghostwriting” as the topics will then be posted on the main account @Platforms and my main account as we build out the idea. There is no guarantee we’ll buy your posts! It’s on a first come , first see basis.
