I just got a job posting on a disability website called Disaboom.com. They pay me $20 a post! It's my first real job, I plan to earn at least $200 on this website. I'm nervous, because it's my first real job. Any advice?

Sounds like a real good offer. Congrats. How long should a word post be? Is it a temporary job? Wishing you good luck.

It has two be at least 250 words in order to get the $20. I think I can stay as long as I want to do so; but my initial contract is for 6 months.

Congratulations on your job! I would like to find something like this that I could do from home and make that kind of money so that I could quit my job and enjoy my time with my kids. I am sure that you will do fine with this as you seem very motivated!!

I would like to find another job as well in a more traditional environment, helping disabled people and writing. That way I could keep the money from this job for pocket money and activism because I would have a real income from my other job. Still this is at least a start.

That sounds like great pay for posting. The usual pay for writing is often so low that it wouldn't be worth my time if I didn't enjoy it. For example I was paid $50 for a 750 word newspaper article. I enjoyed the research and writing it and it was fun to see my work in print but if you figure in all the time I spent on interview and research as well as editing, I was probably paid less than minimum wage. Writing is a tough gig for most of us.

Congratulations and much success. Hope you do very well and enjoy. Starting any new job can be rather nerve wrenching. You'll do just fine. Is Disaboom a writing site?

Yes, it's disability centered site, but I write for them. Original Content!

No, not everyone can join. You have to have a disability and audition of the site called Disaboom. It's a disability arts and culture website.

Congrats on your new job. That sounds like a good start you have going there. My advise would be just keep things fresh, and don't over work yourself. You want to have good articles, not a bunch of bad ones because you could use this to further your career in the future. Good luck to you. :)
