Writing, Writing, Writing!

I'm getting ready to buckle down and start on my work. There are a bunch of assignments to choose from on Textbroker. I already grabbed one from a writing team and another from the job board. On top of that.... this other client, who usually adds a bunch of work once a month, has just added their batch of work. It's usually a couple thousand, and I enjoy writing for this client. Sooo... I may have my work cut out for me tonight. There's a few assignments on Zerys and Writer Access; but I'm not into the topics on WA today, plus I'll have my hands full with those two clients on Textbroker. I'll do the really short ones during WWE Raw, since it's easier to do those while trying to watch the show. I'll do the longer ones beforehand. Raw doesn't come on until 8pm so I have a few hours. :) I don't know if I'm going to hit my weekly quota this week, as I am only writing Monday through Wednesday due to the holiday. It's okay if I don't hit it though. I did really well last week, had some last minute work over the weekend and it's a holiday. If I really buckle down though, I may at least come close. :) Sooo, now that I am finished with this rambling mess we call a post, I'll get back to my work. Do any of you do freelance writing for websites such as Texbroker, Zerys and Writer Access? I'm just asking. You all take care. :)

Textbroker didn't have anything I could write for, and the topics I saw on Zery's were all about the east coast area and I know nothing about the east coast and the real estate market there which seemed to be the topics I saw when I checked daily. So I never wrote for either, though it would have been nice to have been able to write for them.

Gotcha. Are you at level four on TB? There's a lot of work on there now, including a bunch in the shopping categories. The best thing to do is to check back daily/weekly. You never know when work that will catch your eye will pop up. :)

@tammys85 Only level 3. I did see some nice stuff for level 4 when I started, but couldn't do it.

@just4him Ah. I'm sorry. :-/ I would say to try the Textbroker University thing. They didn't have that when I got bumped down to level 3 a few years ago, so I don't know how it works. The client who posts "Write article about..." -- and it's about a person or company, they usually post in level 3, and they post a lot at times. I can message you their client ID if need be.

I failed the BlogMutt test. They told me I could re-take it by responding, so I did, and never heard anything back. I'm glad you're on it though, I hope you like it. :) And good luck on your 2K for NANO. :)

@tammys85 It takes a ton of work, good money but when u factor in time, not sure worth it.

@Jessicalynnt I only wanted BlogMutt as an egg for in between work; like on slow days. But I'm not sure when or if I'll hear from them.

No, right now I only write for this site. Do you write for many sites? You must be very busy.

I do most of my work on Textbroker, Zerys and sometimes Writer Access. I write on here and Persona Paper for fun. I have accounts on Daily Two Cents and iWriter; but I'm barely on DTC and I don't really use iWriter anymore. When there is a lot of work, it does keep me busy, especially since I don't usually start until after I'm off babysitting duty.

I am a freelance writer but I don't write for those websites. I think you mentioned those to me before. I'd like to try them but my problem is I will have less time for MyLot

I may have mentioned them. It can be good money, and you can work as little or as much as you want.

I can see that you are a busy lady . Imagine having to write for those sites amongst the other things you do to earn . You must have lots of saved money already . And at least you still find time to be here .

I earn from mainly writing, and some from babysitting, but I always try to budget. I'll try to be here as much as possible. :)

sounds like you a busy writer, it's all I can do to keep fresh stuff on here to write about but hey as long as you get paid that's the # 1 thing right? & you have fun at it then that's ALL that matters right?
@tammys85 (8295)

Yep, but I have to make sure the editors/clients are happy with my work of course, but most of the stuff I have written about were fun. I enjoy writing on here as well! :)

@tammys85 I love writing I'm just glad to be on here from all the other places I've been online, this is so much better to interact with & meet new people & make friends with & learn a lot from each other too.

@sugartoes Oh definitely! What I do on Textbroker and such is different than sites like MyLot and Persona Paper, but I love coming on here and earning a bit just to write about whatever I want (you can't do that when you write for clients lol). I'm also glad I found a lot of my former bubblers on here, as I always enjoyed the interaction!

@tammys85 Yeah they don't use a star rating. They use basic and standard rating. The articles you do is called copywriting, and they also have translation too. But if you have a lot of revisions they kick you off the site. I already had one revision so far.

24 Nov 15
Heyyyy! Good to see you on here! :) I've been okay, same old-same old, sort of lol. And you? I was irritated at first about Sheamus, but I think I was also blowing off steam at the PPV stream not loading properly. I'm surprised I even saw him cash in when everyone else did at that point. It kept buffering during Reigns' celebration, and then backing up, so I finally had to exit out and go back in. -Smh-

@tammys85 i kept telling people in chat, dont be surprised if Sheamus cashes in, no one believed me. the raw with Sheamus, Rusev and now apparently Barrett being in union with one another and perhaps with the authority, didnt quite make sense. i guess the wwe writers/creative is throwing crap on the wall to see what sticks.

@Plethos I think a lot of the people I talk to on Twitter expected it, but hoped he wouldn't. I don't mind him, but I didn't want him to cash in either. Yep, I'm thinking they're all in The Authority now. Rollins is injured, Big Show may be injured (plus he moved on), Kane moved on, Orton moved on - you really didn't have anyone else from the Authority. I guess they're not ready to get rid of the group yet, especially since they need to start pushing guys. Cesaro is now going to be out for several months for a shoulder injury.

No, I've never done that kind of writing. A lot of the sites won't accept people from South Africa and the one site I tried never offered me any work. Then after a couple of weeks they closed my account for inactivity

@tammys85 I'm not sorry about that one. After I signed up I discovered that I didn't really like the look of the site anyway. And I've never been keen to sell all rights to anything I write, so it's probably for the best that it worked out that way.

I had forgotten all about Texbrokers. I think I signed up years ago and never really did anything with it. I wonder if I ever even wrote anything. It might be interesting to look and see.

I think I was going to try Merchant Circle, but I was too late. I was on Bubblews up until the end, but by the end it was mainly for connections/something to do.

I don't write on any other sites. I am hoping that I will get to the point where I will find time and energy to work on my novel. I could use the money but I can't start on another distraction.

I used to do Textbroker, but my rating was only average and I often did not get to the site when assignments were available. They had some kind of change and I just chose to quit. At that time my personal life would not let me do a good job. I do not know if I have heard of Writer Access and I am positive I have never heard of Zerys. I may look at them, and/or reapply to Textbroker.
@tammys85 (8295)

Ah. What level are you, if it's okay to ask? I know they started Textbroker University for lower levels. I wish they had that when I was bumped down to level 3 years ago. Granted I was back up in just a few days (it was in the midst of my ratings), it still shook me up at the time. You should definitely look into the other ones. I am also on iWriter but mehhhh, I don't care for that one all that much, so I'm not active on it.

I could never get interested in the sites you mentioned because I enjoy writing about personal things and what I want to write about. I'm not as good of a writer when I am being told what to write about. I enjoy my time here.
@tammys85 (8295)

Gotcha. It's not for anyone, but like I told someone else, anyone can sign up at a later date. :) I never thought I could do it either, as I used to write on websites like YCN, where I'd try to come up with article ideas that would lead me to upfront payments. I'm glad I finally mustered up the courage to try these websites.
