I mentioned some websites and what it's like to write for them, but realized I didn't share my experience and the sites I prefer. I hope this group can be a place to share your writing experiences because I feel like we can all learn something from each other. I usually write at least a few articles a month for Bright Hub. They recently raised their pay rate from $10 per article to $15 per article, which I love! I write for a lot of channels and enjoy the opportunities there.
I have said always my favorite site to write for is Examiner. I love the freedom of being an Examiner for my favorite topics. I upkeep 5 titles there, well, okay I need to do better sometimes-- it's hard to keep up! (: I am hoping the new pay rate will work in my favor since I have hundreds of articles on Examiner.com.
Susan in this group does a lot of her writing for Odesk and with her help, I've gotten started there, too. They have a large pool of writing opportunities to apply to and I'm excited for the new opportunities there. I have also written a lot for Demand Media Studios, but not as much lately. I like that they, too, pay $15 per article, it's just the titles I am interested in are hard to find and the editors are pretty strict. Other than that I have written for other websites on occasion and enjoy finding new opportunities. A few months ago I became the Treasurer/secretary for our condo complex so that has been keeping me very busy, too!
What are your favorite sites and why?
