I've discovered a new website to write for, which I am pretty excited about. It's called Article Document, and here's how it works. You start out writing articles for them that are "revenue sharing," which means you get paid ongoing royalties based on how many views the article gets. The best thing about the revenue sharing posts is that I get a "byline," meaning my name is at the bottom of the article. This will allow me to start a portfolio of my published work, which I can show to potential clients. The revenue sharing probably won't add up to much money unless a post goes viral, but it's only the first step...
Ghost Writing Journalist Articles
Once you have ten articles accepted that are rated a seven or above by Article Document's editors, you get to unlock "journalism" assignments that they pay you for up front. The rate per word for those articles is three to ten cents, which is a lot higher than the 1.4 cents I've been getting while writing for Textbroker.

Right now, I feel like I'm working for free, but it's a means to an end. I won't find out what's behind curtain number two until I get ten articles published. Hopefully, it will be as good as it sounds, so I can start making some real money. Good or bad, I will post an update here in a few days.
