Have you ever had a really good article get a low offer and a not-so-good article get a higher offer? I had this happen to me today. I submitted two articles and one was given a higher offer than the one I thought was good. Yesterday was a bad writing day for me. My words didn't come smoothly and my articles jumped instead of flowed. I guess everyone has days like this but yesterday I was pretty much upset with everything I wrote. I noticed today that the article I wrote yesterday that didn't flow and jumped around the topic got a better offer than one that flowed smoothly and made perfect sense. Who would have thought? Have you ever had days and articles like this? Do you just think it was the mood of whoever was reading my article to offer me more? I write on AC if you have any enlightment. LOL

haha so funny, think you write better when you are moody oh. Hope you have a lot of lousy days when words jump about. Maybe AC will give you $20 per article oh. Maybe they dont really care about the sentences making sense or not, they just want high paying keywords in the article. Hmmm, mommaj, how about writing a senseless article with good keywords, see how much AC pay you!

I thought I already did that.You've read some of my articles. HAHAHA. I have started the article already it's called "Stupid Keywords". The 1st sentence is keywords aren't stupid. Search engines look for stupid keywords. Search engines stupid,keywords may be stupid... After that the sentences are blah blah stupid keywords and Stupid Keywords blah blah. I don't know how many blah blahs I can get away with until my article becomes spam. I figure the article has to be 400 words for AC to consider upfront payment and I can't use blah blah more than stupid keywords. HAHAHA

haha Mommaj, you are a fast learner!! So now you are writing keywords, and fill in the blanks with blah blah blah. Well, back to school days of making sentence using "disaster", "accident". Except that the teachers in AC wants 400 words oh, not just a single sentence. Maybe stupid keywords article become your highest earning article!

Who knows what goes on in the minds of AC editors? Maybe they were looking at the content versus the style or maybe they were critiqued by two different editors. At least both were accepted for payment.

It's good they got offers. I am still trying to decide if I will accept the one. It's horrible what we write for. LOL. As for what goes on in their minds, I wonder if they have minds sometimes. LOL
