3 Reasons to Write for Low-Paying Online Sites

I contribute to AssociatedContent.com (AC) and eHow on a pretty regular basis; I’ve posted a couple of articles to Helium.

Regular readers of my blog and newsletter may wonder why I contribute to low-paying online sites like this when I earn more from my SEO and other freelance writing gigs. Well, there are three reasons. One was sitting in my inbox when I logged on this morning. It's what prompted this post. Read the rest here.

FYI, the latest edition of Inkwell Editorial's newsletter was published yesterday. What's inside? An interview with Author, Copywriter and Consultant Shel Horowitz.

Shel shares tips on how to market you freelance writing services on a shoe-string budget (he's written five books grassroots marketing); how he created multiple streams of income (writing, speaking, consulting) and more.

There is also a rundown of my $2K plus week (types of projects, what they consisted of and more). There's also a special offer just for newsletter subscribers. So subscribe to read this, and all previous, issues.

Hi Yuwanda,

I'm glad you found a way to make money from those sites. I don't think I would have the patience.

I understand where you're coming from John. Sometimes, I won't post for weeks. Then, I'll look up and see that I have 12 or 15 posts that I could get paid for. Then I think, "Hmmm, that's enough to knock out the quarterly garbage bill. So I upload'em and about a week later, the funds hit my PayPal account." And whammo, another bill knocked out that I didn't have to "budget" for.

FYI, thanks for the link love you give me. I peek in on Poewar about once a week to read your roundup.
