Why is the date for this post set way in the future?

When I started this post back in 2008, I wanted this post to be at the top of my blog. Since the more recent blog posts appear higher at the top, I hit on the idea of setting this blog post way in the future. (In hindsight, this was a rather inelegant solution.)

What is Iakul's List?

I stumbled into online freelance writing back in 2008. Started complying a list of sites where I could get paid to write, and hence Iakul's List was created.

Is Iakul's List still being updated?

I used to investigate a site quite thoroughly before I was willing to put it on my list. It took a lot of time and effort, which at this point simply isn't worth my while to expend. However, I'm still unwilling to compromise on the checks I put a site through. I do still plan to update and add new sites to Iakul's List, but expect my updates to be more sporadic. Quite a number of the site descriptions are also outdated, and rewriting them is also on my update list.
