Post My First Article at factoids paid me a bonus

Since I have been viewing the threads here writing for the web
I have come to know factoidz
here it is...

http://factoidz.com/swot-analysis-a-...n-development/

It earned me a bonus of $0.20
What do you think guys? Should I pursue a writing career?
Or should I be better of delivering pizza?

Just out of interest, how much did you get paid for the article? I've been trying to start writing articles for lots of sites now and it seems to take too much time, I'm not a slow writer but the money that you get for articles is low compared to other things.

Follow your heart, seeing which one is the thing you really want to do and the thing you may insist for a long time.

That seems like a lot of work for that amount, I'm writing for londonbrokers.net they pay by the amount of words. Many articles want spinning though, it's about $2 for 300 words and it goes up, plus you get a small bonus for fast delivery. Hope this helps.

Wow that sounds great, do they pay a share on the ads revenue per month?

It's not a place to publish your own stuff, they have a list of jobs to write and you choose which ones you want to go for. I heard that triond pay for your own stuff to be published, but I dont really know anything about them.

Interesting that your article used my original research on SWOT (http://rapidbi.com/management/histor...swot-analysis/ ) but like many other sites fail to recognize the source!

Many writers get paid for writing via outsource sites like:
odesk, elance etc

If you provide good original content you can earn $20 for a good 800 word article.

Try those sites if you are serious - just make sure you run your text through copyscape or other plagerism checkers before submitting

I'm sure i was looking at notes from my college days when doing this article.. That I failed to credit whoever our lecturer that day.

If I was only able to find your article before I did mine I think it would have been a much better piece than what I have there.

There are lots of sites that will pay you to write articles, and lots of people on forums and freelancing sites that can also help. To be able to earn decent money though your level of writing needs to be high and you need to believe in yourself. I write full time but it's not for everyone
