Are there similar sites like iwriter.com?

I had been a member of iwriter.com however requesters of the site are sometimes "unpredictable". They may refuse to accept the article you wrote if they do not "feel" like accepting it no matter how good the article is. This makes writers get tired of the site. I am looking for a site with the same paid writing service if anyone here had been a member and had been paid.

textbroker has a creepy rating system, and they seem to be especially pricky with commas. You ratings depend on your last five articles but they don't evaluate your articles until it builds up to about 20 or 30. So if you have 25 good articles and the last two or three articles are below par for some reason, too bad, you slip in ratings. The problem with such content sites is that you live by the day. Doing a good job and being appreciated for it is no guarantee that you will still have a job tomorrow.

Irene, textbroker have long existed before iwriter. Iwriter is just a site that acts as middlemen between individuals who run sites get content since they are not a firm who can afford to hire writers personally. Textbroker has a uk version right now, but from what I have heard it hasn't gotten so many work posted yet, feel like it is having problems with recognition from individuals and companies that post writing jobs. It took a long time before it was launch so am guessing most work are on the us version.

I get what you mean, i have been doing the same thing in iwriter and sometimes get piss with them, as we took the effort writing those articles yet they can reject it as and when they like. Well, try odesk.com, or freelancer.com they are kinda like the same thing, only the fella will accept you first before giving you topics you write, so whatever you write, they will have to accept it. What plays the most important role in getting a job here is they your cover letter. Odesk is a really good place. I could earn up to usd1000 a month. Not promoting or anything here, but seriously. And besides, some ppl they pay up to usd10 per article, and you don't have to be what premium writer, this and that stuff. So good luck! Hope you can find what you are looking for. =)

You are absolutely right jeslin. I am also pissed one time when I read the reason for rejection that says "no paragraphing" It really pissed me because such reason of rejecting an article is unreasonable . How could you break topics when you do not paragraph and it was not even mentioned in his instruction ? I tried odesk as well but I cannot get bids

Requester are so paranoia on iwriter. Some are even unbelievable with the reasons they give. One problem of iwriter is there's no site editor to go through your work first before sending it to the requester in a viewing form. Some requesters are scams, they take long to approve or reject articles, reasons for these are they take your article and spin it into their taste and use but still reject you. Why couldn't they just ask the writer for a rewrite with specific directions. Iwriter also puts the requester ahead of the writer, which is supposed to be opposite direction. This privileges accorded the requester makes them feel Godly over writers.
