    As we note elsewhere, external publisher “clip” content is available from simple RSS feeds that is added by our users and contain only the basics you’d find on other social networks and RSS readers, including things like a title, preview text, and maybe an image. This content is not monetized in any way by Outlit or any other source. This content is formatted and packaged so our users can discuss it, but the “clip” links externally and can be viewed in any web browser. This content is not monetized by Outlit and not used for any commercial purposes.

    RSS feed content is not in any way monetized on Outlit and RSS sources are added by Outlit users. RSS feeds of content are never available as full stories on Outlit and always link to the original source for the full story. You may request that an RSS feed of content you own be removed from Outlit, which requires evidence that the RSS feed is a violation of our terms of service, is spam, or other abusive content.

    Outlit is a new way to create and publish your stories, thoughts, and content online and earn from every reader and viewer. This article will provide an overview of how that works. 

    There are two ways to get started with publishing and earning on Outlit, but both ultimately require you to join Outlit free. Better do that first before proceeding onward, as you cannot publish and earn without joining Outlit. 

    Clip and Publish
    Outlit's clip and publish feature allows you to "clip" a story preview you see on Outlit and comment on it before sharing it to friends, followers, and the Outlit community. 

    To do that, click the scissor icon under any Outlit clipped story and add a comment in the box that says, "Why is this interesting?"

    If you add a title, you will publish a new clip that references the original clip. This will be formatted as your own story that references another story, with a title and dedicated page URL on outl.it.

    'Quick Publish' Your Stories Any Time
    Ideas and stories may strike you at any time, and it's impossible to know when and where that will happen. But many great story ideas come when you're reading about something. So, we created Outlit's Quick Publish space and nestled it at the top of your Outlit dashboard. 

    The idea for this is simple: we wanted to make it easy to get right to writing without having to leave your main reading feed. Contract and expand the space whenever you want by clicking the [+] icon next to 'Quick Publish'. 

    To publish, just add a title, then tell your story in the post text box. Add an image if you would like. Please note, your story must be of a certain length for earnings options to turn on. Once you meet that length, you can set your cost to view the story, or make the cost to view the story free. Outlit lets creators choose whether they want to earn, and Outlit lets readers choose how they want to see content they are interested in. 

    PUBLISH AND EARN

    You can publish and earn from anywhere on Outlit, but we recommend using our full page publish program at outl.it/publish for serious creators. This is always available to you at outl.it/publish. You can publish a story and earn from readers right from this page - and the enhanced formatting options, ability to edit your story’s meta data, and easy-to-use compose suite makes this an attractive option for anyone with anything to say.
