Last week while I was researching for my mother on kidney disease and diabetics I decided to write an article on it and submitted it to AC (Associated Content) it was my first submission there and I got an offer. it was the best $4 I earned yet.....I was so excited so I just wrote another article last night. I will see how this one pans out on there in a couple of days. I like the fact that the send you the payments per article for the up-front payments. Do you prefer up front payments on AC?

Well done. You are so lucky you get upfront payments. As I am not from the US I only get pay per view payments. I do get upfront payments from Helium though but they are not as much as what AC offer. When you start earning money from writing you just want to keep going. It is relatively easy money, and in my opinion freelance writing is the best way to earn online. What is your name on AC, and we can read each other's articles, which will help to bump up our page views.

You are lucky to get upfront payment for your articles. I have more than 60 articles in AC now. Losing a bit of stream already. Now that I got a new digital camera, I'm going to "shoot" everything and post the images up in AC to earn page views bonus. I think "shooting" pictures are much easier to earn money than to write articles. I will not stop writing. Maybe just cut down on the frequency of submission.

I am considered a foreigner as I live in Canada. I thing I will write some articles to see how it turns out. I like the fact that there are residuals literally forever or when to universe ends whichever comes first. I only have one choice, the residuals as the do not pay up front for non-residents.

It is very exciting to get paid for writing. I like the upfront payments for Associated Content. Lately, I have been doing mostly re-posting articles that I had already written for another site. There is a wide range of topics and writers there on AC, and lately, I have gone back there after some time away. I really enjoy reading things as well as writing them, but there are just not enough hours in the day! Good luck with your writing!

I have just recently started writing for AC, and I love the upfront payment. I have only done one of those so far, as most of what I have posted are articles I wrote for other sites. I really like AC and I plan to write a lot more articles for them in the future.

Hi taface, i too am a member of AC and this is one more site that distinguishes between members by region or whatever, i have 5 published articles and they dont pay upfront for our (read0 Asian region...we earn a pittance given out for views, so i have stopped contributing, it is such a waste of time...
