Today I was researching new sites that pay members to write articles when I stumbled across Get Paid To Write Online. I read several of the articles on the site and have already fell in love with it. My favorite article is "Lessons Ive Learned from Getting Started in Freelance Writing." You can read it here http://www.getpaidtowriteonline.com/lessons-freelance-writing/ if you would like. How many of you use this site? If you dont use this site, what sites do you use to help you become a better writer?

Hello! I mostly use Associated Content. It is totally work it! I have made over three hundred dollars in one week with this site. However, I had to write a lot of articles to earn that amount of money. It takes a lot of time if you want to make a lot of money. Associated Content pays its members 3-20 dollars per article. You also get paid for page views. I normally make 18-28 dollars a month just in page views. I don't have to do anything for that money, just have my articles on the site. There are several other writing gigs online. A lot of people use Odesk. Personally I dont like this site because I feel that the pay is too low. If you are a really good writer I know a lot of people that would recommend Demand Studios. I don't have experience with this company so I cant tell you much about it. I do know that you have to get accepted to write for their company. I am thinking about applying soon. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Good luck!

Thanks to share that! I signed up with them some time ago and still I haven't make any article. I think I should give it a try.

Hi oscar6. Aside for Mylot, I also use Triond and E-zine. Hub pages is good too. But somehow, I frequent Mylot and Triond. I haven't received any payment for Triond though. Good luck to your freelance writing career. If you found any site that pays for articles, please share again. Thanks.

That's a nice site - one of the writers there (Sharon) is a mutual Twitter follower. She's a lovely lady. There are loads of great advice sites out there. I'm particularly fond of Anne Wayman's aboutfreelancewriting.com - she's very businesslike since she's been freelancing for years, but she's also really friendly and helpful. (And completely off-the-wall hilarious once you get to know her.) I keep my own blog about freelancing, so I'm always on the lookout for interesting new things to read and absorb, as well as putting my own experiences (good and bad) out there to help (I hope).
