I am a member of associated content, but as of yet I havent made any friends on the site. I read an respond to some of the articles, but I don't really know anyone on there. Are you an associated content member? How do I go about making friends on there?

Making friends is actually easier than what it use to be on there.I have been on there for over two years now and have made a ton of friends. You asked how to make friends on there and the best way that I have found is to leave valuable comments on articles that intrigue you. If I am in a hurry I will often leave a smile face instead of a comment since this is like a calling card that lets them know that you were there reading their article.My pen name on associated content is Rosa Hayes and you can look for me there. I have also found that the more you published and get noticed, the more that people will befriend you. Good luck and I hope that everything works out for you.

I write for Associated Content now and then but until the last few months didn't have but 1 or 2 friends. I've started stepping out and reading other writers articles and leaving comments where I can - I've started following more authors and have started getting more following me. I think like any place else you just need to work at 'developing' a relationship. Hunt me down over there and we can follow each other if you'd like.

I am a member of assosiated content, but they are making me a little upset with their claiming that my articles are too 'common.' It's upsetting because I won't see an article that is on the same subject as mine, but when I post it they claim that it's too common. Grrr. I don't know. I think I'm dismalgrin on there, but I could be wrong.

Maybe what they mean is common to the internet. I submitted a task to myLot and was told it was too much like what was already out there and I just didn't have anything else to say on the subject. (There wasn't much you could say.)

What is the point of being a writer then? I thought that as writers we were to bring a unique perspective to what we write about. If I was brilliant enough to come up with topics no one else had pursued, I probably wouldn't be a writer... I'd be an inventor of some sort, that is where the real money is! Haha.

The friends I have on associated content were friends before I joined associated content. But then that is true of all my writing friends, I met them (or know them) in non-writing circles, became friends, then learned that they were also writers. Honestly, I can not think of a single writing friend I have (people that I actually talk to, not just icons on a profile) that is not true of. Perhaps someday, I will break this pattern.

Wow, I can't believe this discussion has been active for 4 weeks and I am just now seeing it. I signed up at AC a while ago but I haven't devoted much time to it other than one article on the New Orleans French Quarter Festival and a few slide shows of New Orleans related events. (There is one of Bourbon Street.)

I recently started writing for them, but actually have not had time to really develop any friendships. I'm pretty much focused right now on trying to discover the best internet medium for my interests - and trying out Associated Content, my own blogging, Hubpages and the like (and now MyLot). Am less interested in the money and more interested in what is a good fit for my interests. I suppose once I've found my medium, I'll be able to develop some friendships. So far, most of the new people I've met has come through blogging and interacting with other blogs through traffic exchanges. But hello from another AC writer. I think most of the newbies like myself are still drifting around, but once you're established, the social networks will probably develop.
