I've not been able to get around the board because the "server is busy" lately. If you're still interested pm me and we can either exchange pm's or emails.

Hello all!

I'm really hoping to get a free-lance career going, somehow, while trying to keep 3 little kids clothed, fed and happy. I'll be reading this thread more throughly, looks like there's some great ideas.

Well I am starting to get courageous enough and I am exploring some magazines for submissions. I am looking at some Christian magazines and parenting magazines currently. Part of me is just so scared to try though. I also just ordered a book on the ins and outs of freelancing.

Currently I am a Feature Writer at Suite. I used to work at AC, but became dissatisfied with how they run the show there. The good news is I am making more money at Suite now anyway. To clarify, Suite does NOT by page views. You get paid a share of the revenue when people click on the google ads. That percentage increases depending on how many articles you have published and if you are an FW. So the key there is to limit external links and write on topics that people are likely to see an ad of appeal - so some topics are better than others for that.

What's Suite?

And does anyone have any experience with Hellium? Are they worth the effort?

Not Jenny but answering the question.

http://www.suite101.com

I'm also a feature writer there and have similar thoughts as Jenny; I've only been writing there a little over two months but not only is the $ better than I was making at AC, I've also had offers to write for print publications at a much higher pay rate. I'm definitely happy with the exposure I've received at Suite.

I don't usually write for public consumption, but I am considering it and will have to read this thread when I have a little more time. Subbing for future reference.

have started getting into AC....to answer another poster's question, I tried Helium a few months ago but didn't really get anywhere with it. To be honest I didnt think the quality of many of the other articles on there was up to scratch, so I didn't think it was worth it.

Suite sounds great though...will have to check it out.

Subbing as I'm trying to be more diligent with my freelance efforts these days.
