How long does it take for articles to be reviewed at daily article? I have submitted three just to see when they would show up. Two are in the same category and the third in a completely different category. None of the articles have been reviewed and displayed. Is this a legit website? When do you see your articles for sale? I was hoping to start writing there and if the articles didn't sell after a couple of weeks to put them on another website. Any suggestions?

Hi Mommaj, I post this question in AC forum, under other writing gigs. I was told that the norm is a week, but it took a whole month before my articles appear for sales. You can check out the discussion thread in AC for more information. Many writers post the articles rejected by AC and sold them in Dailyarticle. I heard that once you sold a few articles, DA would not moderate the articles anymore, so the articles are put up for sale instantly.

Hi Scheng! I actually looked on AC before I posted here because I knew some of those guys were writing for Daily Article. I found a couple of discussions but I didn't see yours. I didn't find any info about Daily Aritcle I needed. Are you writing there as well, now? Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous, almost makes me wish I lived there. I'm glad to know it's only a week, but realistically I believe the month. LOL Heck it takes me a month just to decide to look at my articles. HAHAHA

Hi Mommaj, have you done a search in the forum for DA or Dailyarticle? There are some old discussion threads. Plus there are many articles in AC about writing resources. They do provide some information about DA. I think DA is overloaded with articles. They have to process the articles manually to make sure that the articles are really unique and not plagierized. Actually I have more than 60 articles, and only 6 are displayed for sales.

*hammer Mommaj* How do you manage to get your articles approved so fast? I can see your articles display for sales already. The camping article has more words and selling for less, and the wedding articles has lesser words and sell for $25. Hope you can sell and buy ice-cream for me! *sob* my articles took about a month before appearing for sales, why are you so lucky!

hi i have tried associated content(AC) and Bukisa and i think they are pretty good-but others like Constant Content, Helium are not good at all for international writers.i havent tried daily articles-i dunno whether it is open for international members.but i think if u r a passionate publisher-u shud go for either AC or Bukisa.

I have been on AC for about a year and a half. I am starting to look at other possibilities now. I wrote on Helium and I am not very successful there. It is my own fault because I don't devote my attention to Helium as I have to AC. The reason is I make a lot more on AC. Being from the States on AC has its advantages. I earn upfront payments as well as the monthly page views. I keep seeing Bukisa. I haven't looked into it yet, though.

hi yeah u r right-AC is more beneficial if u r an US citizen.I wrote 5 articles for Helium and one fine day-they abruptly suspended my account since it is no longer available to citizens of our country.

Hi Amirev777 and Mommaj, there is a great difference between Bukisa and AC. Articles published in Bukisa are under Creative Common License. That means you are allowing anyone to download the articles and use in their websites or blogs, provided that they give credits to you. If you do not want anyone to use your articles for free, keep to AC.

So have there been any new developments with your articles on this site yet? Any thing picked up for sale?

Unfortunately, no. No more articles have been released for sale and the two articles that are for sale have not been bought. I guess no one is looking for those articles. lol

I haven't had time to pursue anything at daily article but if I did I would keep everything short; nothing over 300 words until I saw what was what. The reason is you can sell stuff upfront at AC and possible still get page views or at Constant Content if your writing is up to par. You should think in terms of short filler like the sidebar articles you see in magazines on travel or shopping or fitness or whatever might be popular. Decide who your audience is and specialize in writing for that demographic. You write a lot of wedding oriented stuff. Chop those big articles up into smaller ones for $10 or $20 and see what happens. Summarize and generalize and save the longer more specific articles for sites that pay more or sites where you have a track record.
