wiseGEEK – Round 4

Here is the next installment in my pursuit to become a writer for wiseGEEK.  For those that don’t know, I am in the testing process to get hired as a writer for wiseGEEK.  I REALLY want this job. I enjoy the articles. The pay isn’t bad for 400 word articles. The Editor is really nice, and they pay super fast.

I have completed 4 rounds of 3 test articles. The average is 3 rounds of 3 articles.  I am so thankful they are working with me to get a hang of their formatting styles, and are giving me extra testing articles. I get paid for each test article, which is also great.

So, the verdict is …. I am to do 3 more test articles!!!!

The editor said 2 out of 3 of my articles were great. She can tell I’m working hard and making all the changes she’s suggesting, but 1 of my articles had content that was too similar to something that already exists online. Not plagierism, but just similar content in a similar order.  She is giving me one more chance.

I will be writing my next 3 articles on Monday and the next time I write about wiseGEEK, I hope that it is to say that I’ve been hired!

Breaking News: Textbroker Changes Pay Schedule

Shout!

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my email and read the latest announcement from Textbroker that they are going to start paying out weekly! Textbroker is a great place to write. While Textbroker is one of the first places many people start writing for, more than half continue to write there, even if it’s just used during ting downtime. Textbroker pay rates for level 4 and 5 writers are pretty good, but they come in waves.  There are times when there are hundreds of titles to choose from, and then there are times with it’s slim pickings.  Bu this is an egg I definitely recommend, even more so now that they are moving to  weekly pay.

The Textbroker pay announcement says:

 

[important]

We will be transitioning to weekly payoffs. We will be starting with payoffs on the following dates:

September 6th
September 21st
September 30th

After this month, we will be scheduling a payoff every Friday. Please make your requests by Thursday 11:59 PM EDT.

[/important]

 

I think I’ll be giving Textbroker a little more of my time because of this new pay schedule. I am a huge fan of Weekly pay and spend most of my time writing for places that pay weekly!
