that seem to pay a little, what are some others you suggest? I am a member of Associated Content, and Helium, and was wondering what else is out there, and do they really pay? In the future I would really Love to be a published author some places, and just continuing to look for sites where I can get a head start.

I highly suggest trying Constant Content, here´s my aff. link http://www.constant-content.com/?aref=9303. The reason I like this site is because I earn between $200-400 per month on it, with not much writing. They don´t pay you right off the bat, it is really a data base for writing. Webmasters and others come there to look for content and buy articles from the writers. You set your own price and although they take 33%, I consistently earn between $20-35 per article. You do have to be a good writer, though, because they have pretty strict grammar guidelines. Plus, your work has to stand out for other people to buy it. I usually write health pieces and those seem to sell well.

I really need to check this site out, and see if I can make anything from it. I just seem to never have enough confidence anymore to submit the stuff I have written to other sites anymore. Plus I need to find some time, but thanks for the link.

Aside from those you mention, the only other one I know of is http://www.constant-content.com, which seems like it could be a useful site for some writers. One of my friends has had a good deal of luck with it; I, on the other hand, have only submitted one article, and no one has bought it. :) I think whether Constant Content works for you or not depends partially on your willingness to let an article simmer there for an indefinite amount of time or your willingness to write articles that are requested, and hope that yours gets chosen for purchase. Whatever you do, I don't recommend DayTipper. I have had six of my tips accepted there, but I've only been paid for one. I've heard from some others that they have seen their tips (with their name on them) appear on the site without being paid for them. Sounds suspicious, to say the least.

Ack! I can't believe I forgot to mention RentACoder: http://www.rentacoder.com. A lot of the jobs you can bid on there are programming jobs, but if you change your filters to only show you the writing stuff, there's a lot less to try to wade through. I've gotten a lot of good writing work there.

Well, I have been hearing a lot lately about Constant content, and might try submitting some of my stuff there and see what happens. I get turned down lately or they want my Work with NO PAY on AC so I give up on that site for now. Thanks for your response.

There are good sites out there and not so good but Associated Content is definitely one of the better freelancing sites, I am also a content producer there since 2005--also Helium but aven't submitted anything yet- and I have a few more to enlighten you on . . . http://www.authspot.com/writers/Enlightenedpsych2.964 http://www.espressofiction.com/writers/ http://www.writers.net/writers/34032 My first published book, published under the POD (print-on-demand conditions), is available here and perhaps you could check into getting some of your stuff published . . . http://www.authorhouse.com/BookStore/ItemDetail/~bookid~16058.aspx sharing the light, Erica, the Enlightenment Advisor,M.A. Transpersonal Psychological Studies Counseling/Author&Artist freelance http://www.livejournal.com/users/mindful_walker/

Thanks for sharing these with me. I might check into at least one of these and see what happens. It is always interesting to see and learn from others what is really out there.

Someone else above mentioned Rent a Coder, located at www.rentacoder.com. I also use that website. I have recieved quite a few projects off of that site, as well as long-term writing projects. Scriptlance is like Rent a Coder, but you need to be careful because they do not require money to be escrowed; therefore, you need to make sure you are doing business with a client that has good feedback. The website for Scriptlance can be found at www.scriptlance.com. You can also try submitting to magazines and books. That has always been a goal of mine. I am planning on buying the Children's Writers Market book (the new edition comes out in August). Good luck!

I have signed up for gather, but have not really done anything much with this site yet. It does look like it could be promising though.

Hello KrauseHome, if you are a pretty good writer, you can try writing reviews? It is easy and I've been a member with this site since 2006. Minimum payout is $50 and payment is through paypal. You can reach payout less than a month. In fact, by a month, you can gain more to your account. For instance, I wait until I reach $100 and more to request payment. But sometimes, I just request after it reaches $50 spot. It is easy and there is no registration for you to fill in. If you are interested, do pm/msg me and I'll pass you the link. Take care and have a nice day. ;)

One great online community site is http://www.onestopwriteshop.com It's fairly new--but it has a great potential since you can post your writings there & get critiques for it, as well as join contests & enroll in their online classes...they also offer from free to paid memberships & you can also earn through referrals when those who sign up under you will get paid memberships=) hope to see you there, if ever you do join just say that raenie referred you, thanks!!
