I have been so remiss in adding blog entries, but I've been busy writing articles for Helium Marketplace. What a great way to make some extra money! It's much easier than writing articles at www.constant-content.com.
A couple months ago, I had read in someone's blog about constant-content so I visited their site and signed up. I wrote three articles and it took about 10 days before they rejected them one by one. If your format isn't just right, they reject it, you make your changes, re-submit and wait. It was very frustrating for me, but I'm sure there are experienced writers who have succeeded. The problem is that you are competing with many more writers than you compete with on Helium. Granted there are more public requests for writing at constant-content.com than at Helium, but I believe writing for Marketplace is much more rewarding. The pay for articles at www.constant-content varies anywhere from $15-$150 and some articles pay more than $150, but each article goes through a screening committee first before constant-content approves them.
I'm not bashing constant-content.com in any way. It was just too frustrating for me as a beginner, but I will probably return to writing articles there one day. All I'm saying is that I think Helium Marketplace is much more rewarding. In fact, I was notified by Helium a few days ago that one of my articles was accepted and if everything goes well, it will be published.
