Attention Writers! If you have a great place to eat, a wonderful hotel to tell everyone about, or advice on how to do something, Associated Content needs you! You can make money, by sharing your experiences with everyone. The site pays you for the articles they accept, and then once you've gone live, you can get bonuses for each time your content is read and voted on. I am including my content page so that you can take a look at what I've written about. Please be sure and vote for my articles if you like them! You also get money for those who join under you... I tried to post the link so that you could join, but since I'm still under 500 posts it won't let me do that yet. So! If you would be willing to join under me, please e-mail me and I will try and send it that way. I've made a bit of money since I joined. I don't write as often as I should on there, but so far there have only been two articles that they've rejected. www.associatedcontent.com/user/40177/paula_carpenter.html

I joined associatedcontent a few weeks ago and wrote one article for them. This article took me about forty five minutes to write and I got $3.61. Hope this helps. There aren't really any guidelines for making articles except that movie/book reviews don't usually get paid. http://associatedcontent.com/article/266716/violin_practice_tips_how_to_practice.html

how awful! I feel really bad for you. They didn't offer you any kind of compensation? I have to admit, that was terribly rude of them.

I have added you as a friend, but can't e-mail you until you accept. That's probably why you couldn't e-mail me the other day.

I was not aware that paypal was only a US company. So yes, unfortunately, they only pay through that company at this time.

I signed up for AC, too, but I have not written anything yet. I will look at your website today and maybe get some inspiration. I don't feel that I am a very good writer, and I think that is why I have not written anything. I can think of all kinds of things I would like to write about, but am unsure whether anyone else would find them of interest. Thanks for the info.

Have you joined Gather? There are several of us here at myot that are also on gather. That site is a bit better for getting sound literary advice from other writers. Of course with any online site, you're going to get negatives. But most of us try if we are asked to critique something, do so constructively.

Thanks for this discussion. I have signed up, months ago, and still have not done a single thing toward publishing on AC. I like your content, and it reminds me of things that I could easily write about.I have a huge smile on my face at this moment. I am needing some summer income, and have hesitated to take another job. I know I will not get rich, but I think I can make a go of it. When I finally get something published, I will discuss it on here. I know of at least one other of my friends who is posting on AC. I would like my daughter to, as well.

I have only published a couple of articles so far, but am working on a few more. My content page is here http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/47194/kelly60.html if anyone would like to take a look at what I have done so far. Like I said, it isn't much yet, but hopefully I will have more articles to share soon.

I have added you. I'll have to read your articles later since I lost track of the time and stayed up most of the night already, but I did glance through them. I see some there that I know I will enjoy.

Thanks so much for adding me on both sites. I have a couple of new articles posted at Associated Content, but they haven't offered me anything for them yet. Sometimes they seem to take forever!

I wrote one whole article last week. i need to make myself sit down and just do it. I did get another one published earlier last week, and I hope they will make an offer on the other one soon.

I too write for them. I really need to get my articles on their that I have written and not entered. I will check out your page when this is posted since I respond from emails I cannot access the link til then. Good luck earning from them. The page views are indeed a good bonus. I too have had two articles rejected. They get funky at times.

I have only done one article on AC so far. I am on the verge of writer's block, so that may be it until fall.

I had another published today! I was excited, because I'd written several articles for the 4th of July, and they were evidently back logged and nothing was being accepted or rejected either one.

I haven't been on here but I will definately check it out. I am not that great of a writer in my opinion but others tell me I do good. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try huh? Thanks for the link and I will check it out. Take care and have a great day.

you never know until you try! You have great ideas here. There are many of us who would be willing to read and critique if you'd like. Are you on gather as well? That's where I get a lot of my critiquing of articles done, before I feel comfortable printing them elsewhere.

I tried signing up for this site but for some reason, there was some sort of error that prevented me from submitting my application. I even had someone from associated content contact me by email to say that they notice I had tried to sign up and didn't finish. I did finish, but it didn't let me submit. I figured I would try again some day. I am not sure the site is for me anyway. If I change my mind about it, I will sign up under you and that's a promise!

I hope that you have tried again to finish your application. The site was down for a week or so, but it seems they have completed whatever repairs they were doing. Let me know if you have anything published there so I can be sure and read it.

Sounds great but I don't know if I have the time right now. School is about to start up again and maybe after the kids are back in school, I'll have more time for writing.
