where did the AC mamas go? (May 2008 thread!)

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Did I miss something?!?! where is everyone?

I haven't published anything in some time, but am going to get some things in my queue soon!

I see Chey and Heather are still publishing. Not sure who else I am missing though!?! did twocoolboys go to suite?


ok hope to catch up with you ladies soon!





and as usual (c+p this from the most recent thread)






PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!

From Heather's Original Thread for AC:
In accordance with the UA, please adhere to the following rules: Please do not post links to your Content Producer page or your articles, in your posts or signature. Please do not spam users in private with these links unless they have asked. If someone asks you for a link, send it to them in a private message. Swap links only in private and when solicited.

You may tell us when you have a new article posted and what it is about, but again, do not link it. There is no need to say "See my CP page for it" or "PM me for a link" and so on to self-promote, because we all know that we can check your CP page or PM you. Keep self-promotion to a minimum. All we need to know is that you wrote something new and what it's about, and if people want to, they will take the initiative to find the peice and read it. Telling us the exact name of the piece is not recommended, because that's about the same as posting the link.



Welcome to the Writing At Associated Content Thread! We love to have newbies, just join in!

Everything above from Heather's First AC Thread is important, so please read and understand!

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

If you would like the link to the yahoogroup please PM ErikaLeigh

TCB does write for Suite but she published a few on AC last month. I've been writing for Suite plus focusing on some other paid gigs. I am hoping to submit a few to AC this month.

hi there. glad someone is still around!

Hi! I'm still here.

Like 2A's said, I wrote a few for AC last month and I intend to write some more this month. Glad to see you back here, Rainbowmoon!

Anyone have any idea what AC is paying for these days? They paid for all my recent ones, which were mostly different gift basket ideas. I had a diaper review too, which was the highest out of the five I did. I know they are not paying for everything these days though. Any subjects to avoid?

Good questions TCB. I hadn't been to the site in about 60 days and woah did it change hehe. I saw a bunch of CFC for $1!

I would never claim a cfc for $1! How silly! LOL. I would, however, write the same piece and submit it like normal, not as a cfc. I bet it would get a better offer. That is, I would do it if any of the topics interested me. The ones I get are pretty lame.

Hi there, I'm brand new to this forum, and to AC. I just signed up a few days ago, and am working on a few articles at the moment. Hopefully it will go well.

I just wanted to chime in on this. I think alot of folks (Who make substantial $ w. AC) are publishing for free and working on promoting, I guess there is money to be made that way (I am just too lazy thus far and don't see that changing too much) plus I am obviously not writing for them to get rich! though the extra cash is nice and I have gotten other jobs using my AC page as a resume!

Yeah - I don't have the time for promotion for those articles, I spend the time promoting my personal websites where I get 100% of ad click revenue hehe.

Ditto on the resume page as well, plus it is nice to have a little diversity in my portfolio.
post #11 of 35
Ok - I see the point in taking a $1 cfc. I have submitted the rare thing for the page view bonus only for various reasons, so it's along the same lines. I do think, though, that if they are going to bother offering an up front payment at all, it should be at least their $3 minumum. But, I guess they don't have that minumum anymore - lol.

Rainbowmoon - I'll check out your articles to see what you got paid for. I'll probably write several more gift basket articles, since I am getting paid for those and they are quick and easy to write. But, I need to branch out a little too.

Hello all!

Yeah, the whole "We give you more control over your content" sounds more like "we'd like to be cheap and pay less" to me. It almost seems like a hit or miss. I usually do a search on there to see if there are similar articles to ones I'm about to write. But I've been catching a string of bad luck on well researched articles. The ones I just throw together have been getting offers, though. Weird.

AC is cheap and they do suck in thier own little ways, but I love the fast cash!!!

twocoolboys- sometimes when I'm out of ideas I get them from MDC.
Just look under new posts at the titles for ideas!

I thought everyone had quit with AC and with a move I just didn't start a new thread!


How is everyone? I just got 4 submitted tonight. What are they paying around now?

Hey you!

Slacking on the thread now, eh?


(j/k!)


They are paying the same as far as I can tell! I'm waiting on a few to be published from last week that are still processing. Hope to get more up this week.
post #17 of 35
I just picked up two other online "gigs" plus two new projects for one of my clients so not sure I'm going to have time to submit to AC this month. Eep.
post #18 of 35
I have three waiting to be published right now
post #19 of 35
There is 4, not three. What is taking them so long now?
