Which do you prefer -- AC, CC, or Helium?

I would like to do a bit of article writing, and I was wondering what everyone prefers/uses most often -- Associated Content, Constant Content, or Helium? Which gives you the widest audience? Which have you found pays you the most? Have you found any major drawbacks to any of the three? I would love to hear from anyone out there that uses any of these sites.

AC is not for me as I am not a US resident.CC i have not tried as i did not see any good reviews.Helium-I have been there now for months.Inspired me to write and I earn too.So my vote is for helium.

How much have you earned so far from Helium, and how many articles have you submitted? (If you don't mind me asking, that is)

I belong to Constand-Content and Helium. There was no pint in me joining AC as they can't pay me because I'm not a US citizen. I've been a member of both the other sites for about a week, and haven't yet submitted to Helium. However, I have submitted three articles to CC and have already had a usage sale. On the whole, so far, they're looing like useful markets for my writing. I have to say I prefer CC, because it's more writer driven than helium appears to be. CC's editors are STRICT! However, I have to say that they've made me tighten up my writing!

I have joined AC and Helium already, but I am considering joining CC too, but I'm not sure that I am that good of a writer. What sort of articles do people usually buy on CC?

I prefer AC because they pay upfront.

I don't write for helium or constant content. I only write for Associated content. I like Associated content upfront payments and some of the assignments are worth writing, especially the ones that paid you. I think is better to focus on one or two sites than to to try to write for a bunch of them.

I prefer the Upfront Payment aspect of AC too, because then I can get some money directly into my Paypal account, instead of having to wait for it. And I agree -- focusing on only 1 or 2 sites works best, especially since some of the sites won't post your articles/stories if they have been posted on the other sites.

I've been to AC, find it more diffucult for me to write there, then I'm also to HElium and have just submmited three articles so far, I got $.24 in my Helium account, and even if I leave it there it would continue growing. I can't stick into one site because I always wanted to try and test if what would give me more earning. Now I've just joined another site again which pays $5 evey article about products, this is called blogitive, I haven't heared from them though because I've just submit my blog. I haven't tried CC yet. But as one here responded on your post that CC is strict, I think I would just pick HElium. BTW, have anyone of you heared or have been working for Elance? Or any other leget site that pays you for translating languages?

I have not heard of any of those types of sites that pay you for translating -- did you ever try one out? If so, did you have any luck?
