I've heard of Associated Content. I know that serveral myLotters write there... What I don't know is if Associated Content focuses on "informational" articles of if they would also want satirical and other types of articles. For those of you who have read my discussions. Do you think I have the writing ability to be able to write for Associated Content? I'm not looking for compliments here. I need some honest opinions. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hello, Personally, I like most of your discussions and contributions on this forum, so you should give AC a shot. I use AC, although admittedly not a frequently as I used to. I think you should just go ahead and give it a shot; find subjects that either you know a lot about or are passionate about. If you choose to venture off later on, it's fine, too, but stick with the subjects you are 100% comfortable with first. You really just have to submit to see where they are in terms of what kinds of articles they want. A lot of times, I have had articles I did not think would be accepted paid for and vice versa. Good luck!

I'm absolutely sure you could. I've taken on AC as kind of a part time job and have earned about $110 in under a month and I haven't been able to be as active there as I'd like as I am really busy with website work at the moment. Just do a couple of articles about a subject you know lot's about and don't get down if you get rejected, it may just be that there are already a lot of similar type articles....good luck. Let me know when you get started and I'll subscribe to your AC content and read and rate your stuff...good luck

I don't think it will earn me the amount of money that I need, but it should help me a little until I can get an outside job. I enjoy writing.

I, too, would like to learn some more about Associated Content. Not just A.C., but the other sites as well. It seems that we're quite limited on what we can write about, what styles we can use, and for the most part, it seems like pay is ridiculously low on all of these sites.

The pay is low, but I think it's all relative... If I were a professional, freelance writer I wouldn't bother with these sites, but I'm not either. I think it's worth it to give it a try. I have spent countless hours online for research and for fun, not earning anything. If I can get paid doing something that I enjoy, then I think it's worth it. At least until I can find something that pays better.

Your discussions here isn't really an indication of whether you'd be able to make money from AC. I suggest going to the site and checking out articles on various topics that are of interest to you. That will give you an idea of the type of articles that you can write. Not everything on the site receives payment, though. You can still get payment for getting traffic to your articles, which is good. Even if it's not something they pay for, if you can get others to read what you've written, you can still get paid.

I hear you. I wonder if A.C. is a good place, or if there is a good place, where people may get "discovered".

I have gotten paid once from AC and that was it. I do not get money for anything I have been putting on that website lately.

I have been writing for them for about a year. I am no great writing talent and have managed to get many articles published. You won't know until you give it a try. Writing is not my first or best passion. If you feel you have a special talent, then by all means try it out. Even if you don't write particularly well, it will give you a chance to become a polished writer. Only you can decide if it is best for you to become a writer. Don't let anyone change your mind or dissuade you from your dreams.

I had intended joining Associated Content (and still might at a later date), but they only pay for U.S. articles, (I'm not sure about Canadian), but don't pay out to U.K. so it's not high on my list of priorities right now. If you can take part in discussions here, then there is no reason you can't write for A.C. as well. Writing for profit can be very rewarding, especially if you can put you thoughts descriptivly. The best thing is to go to the website and look at their terms of reference for submitting articles, then read what others have written. It may be that the first couple that you submit may not be accepted, but with a bit of encouragement and extra knowledge gained from those then you should be able to succeed in the long run, even get a book published eventually.
