I am still plugging away, albeit slowly, at my NaNoWriMo project. I haven’t been able to add anything new the past few days. I’ve been derailed by a writing challenge my publishing house’s writing club put out and been working on that instead. At least I’m writing something other than articles, which incidentally, I’m still writing too. I’d share part of an article, but these companies put them on their blogs, and I don’t think I’m allowed to do that.
Anyway, let me tell you about the content mill I write for.
Its called Blogmutt. And it’s pretty awesome. It’s got 20+ pages filled with almost 100 clients each, with various topics. You pick one, you write, you submit, and you wait. Sometimes I get lucky and the company I wrote for will not only love my post, but purchase it early. All companies are supposed to have at least 1 post by Thursday, so that’s a major payout day for a lot of Blogmutt writers.
Then, the following Monday, if I have submitted my invoices of sold posts ($8 each, which isn’t phenomenal, but it’s better than most, and adds up if you sell most of the articles you write), I get a notice from paypal that Blogmutt has paid me.
I’m just the kind of person that gets suckered into doing hours and hours of research simply because I know at the end of it all I’ll get paid, but I also realize that I could probably 3 articles in the time it takes to research for one. It keeps the money rolling in though and that’s really all that matters.
It also looks great on the resume. Speaking of, I still need to put one together.
Anyone want to do it for me?
