I submit articles to Associated Content. They buy articles for their own use. You can offer them for exclusive rights if you want paid, or publish them for free if you want to keep reprint rights. In both cases you also get a performance bonus based on page views. Until recently they were also making payment offers on non-exclusive content; my average offer was about $5. I know they make higher offers on content that is more unique than my usual stuff. But they changed that policy recently and I have yet to find out if they are raising their offers for exclusive content. They pay within a few days of publishing. If you want to check it out, I would appreciate it if you would use my referral link: http://www.associatedcontent.com/join.html?refer=44927. Another freelance site I use is Constant Content. They accept submissions and then sell them to third parties who are looking for content. The nice thing about CC is that you get to set your own price, although they do take a commission. They pay in a lump sum at the beginning of each month. Sometimes you have to wait for an article to sell, although many of mine have sold as soon as they were accepted. They do have higher standards as far as writing goes. You have to proofread very carefully and avoid minor errors or they may not accept your work. The few articles I have had rejected were accepted once I corrected them. My referral link there is http://www.constant-content.com/?aref=8083. I have been writing for both for a year now and have made a good part-time income. I can guarantee that they do pay you!

I use getafreelancer. And freelance work is not as easy as everyone thinks. It is time consuming.
