Good News Toward My Writing Goals

I have researched some websites that offer to pay for written content. Some websites offer revenue for articles, some websites offer to hook bloggers up with Advertisers to post reviews, and some want to hire freelance writers as content writers and/or guides for a more substantial income. I chose a few good sites and here are some of my results:

1. I applied to become a Factoidz Writer, and today I received a notification that my application was accepted. I do not think you know how excited I am about this! I have reserved an assignment for a product review. I will post more about it soon. I can refer my friends to join the website with this affiliate link:

2. I joined a website, Triond, and published an article through them. You can view my article at:

http://healthmad.com/conditions-and-diseases/two-influenza-a-viruses-the-swine-flu-and-the-bird-flu/

It’s called “Two Influenza A Viruses: The Swine Flu and the Bird Flu. It’s a comparison of the swine flu vs. the bird flu. The bird flu is actually more dangerous and easier to catch than the swine flu was. If the bird flu becomes a pandemic, it would pose a major catastrophe.

3. I applied for a position as a Content Writer for a major website, which would entail a commitment of 12 articles per month, and along with my article revenue, I would be guaranteed a monthly base pay. They also have positions available for guides, but I will be happy with either position that they’ll accept me for. I won’t say the name of the website until I receive a notice from them about my application.

4. I joined a website set up specifically for reviews. I can review just about anything on that site, and invite my friends to join. I have published my first review for that site at:

http://www.shvoong.com/lifestyle/food-and-drink/2124258-favorite-restaurant-olive-garden/

You may have to copy/paste the URL into your browser to connect. It’s a review of my favorite Italian Restaurant, The Olive Garden. I will write many more reviews. If you want me to refer you, let me know so that I can send you a referral email from the website.

During my research to find websites that pay freelance writers for content, I found the Hongkiat website. I found “26 Sites That Pay You To Blog”, an extremely helpful resource, followed by “Marketing Your Blog: 10 Essential Tips You Should Know”. I will continue to use the education from these two articles throughout the course of my freelance writing career. Read these two articles by copy/pasting the following URLs into your browser.

Happy Writing! I hope you find this information helpful, as I have.
