Hey everybody, I'm really excited because I just got offered $20 on a piece that I wrote about being a stripper. They even left me a note (you know where they usually leave one because your stuff has been rejected) that said: "AC rewards a handful of the strongest submissions each day with a higher than average offer, and your content has been selected for this honor. Congratulations!" It was even submitted as a Non-Exclusive. Please feel free to read it at its other location as Associated Content hasn't published it yet: http://www.epinions.com/content_4947288196 I would love to hear your comments about my piece and also would love to read anything you have submitted to Associated Content that you've made high dollars on.

Wow!! That's great!! I signed up but still haven't submitted anything yet. I just haven't felt like writing lately and even have let Epinions go. :( I need to get active again but for some reason I've been blocked lately. I have no idea why or how to get past it, either. :(

Congratulations to you. But I feel very sad after reading that. You seem a very bright young girl and it is awful that you are in a position like this. I hope that soon you manage to be in a position where you do not need to do things that you would rather not do. But well done you for being brave and not ashamed! I think that it's one of the most honest proffessions a woman can do and if accepted and regulated girls like you would be paid alot better. Take care honey. Keep up the writing it's really good. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Wow, that's great! I'm an aspiring myself so I really know how you feel when you get awarded with something like that. And it's always an extra bonus to get paid for your work. I've never heard of Associated Content, but they sound like a good place. I'm going to read the link right now, and thanks for posting it up so we can read it.

LOL, I had no idea that you were on Epinions!!! If you are going to sell that I think that you have to remove it from the Epinions site. There was a lot of talk about cross posting and stuff, would hate to see you get in trouble for it. Glad to see you are making some money from it ..

I don't think she has too. She sold it to AC as a non-exclusive article which means she still holds the rights to it and can sell it other places if she wishes.

I know, I'm going to take it off of Epinions, I was just waiting for it to go through on AC first. AC isn't the problem, it is Epinions, they're pretty strict on publishing something that you've published elsewhere on their site.

It wouldn't be a problem with AC, from what I can tell, but Epinions has problems with articles being posted in two places. You removed it from Epinions before I got to read it, so I'll have to check it out at AC. I am seriously behind in my reading online lately. Congrats again!

I've just checked the URL you suggest, but I couldn't find your piece. In fact there was written: "We're sorry, but this review cannot be displayed. This review has been deleted." Sorry, I was curious to read your piece, but it was not possible, maybe because too time passed (It's a piece written four months ago). I hope to read something else by you in future.

My highest was non CSO was an article on Pro Wrestlers who played Pro Football. I can't copy and paste here yet and it's a long URL. So if you are interested look up Randy Inman on there and read my "Which Pro Wrestlers were Pro Football Players" Nice article btw I will read it again and rate it when they post it on AC.

I am headed over there to read this. I use to strip up here in Oklahoma city. I got out of it after i ended up in a custody battle. I was thinking about going back because of the money and I could use some of it after paying my lawyers. You can check me out at http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/46831/rosa_hayes.html

That's awesome! The highest offer I have ever received is $14.00! I wish I could get a $20.00 offer for something. My $14.00 offer was just a simple 500 word piece on "Where To Buy A Wedding Dress in St. Louis", I suppose it was a much needed topic!

That's pretty cool. I like how honest you were about the entire thing. My highest offer on AC so far is an article I wrote for college students about planning for their spring break. I searched the internet for some of the most interesting websites that offered the best discounts for college kids wanting to travel. I got $15.88 for it..and I'm not sure why the whole cent thing came into play, but it did. Regardless, I'm pretty happy with it. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/138885/top_5_spring_break_planning_websites.html The above link is to my article.
