Top 3 Content Sites for Working from Home

As promised, I am posting this update on my recent adventures in writing for content sites. I've done extensive online research and applied at several different websites, but I will only be reviewing the companies that have worked out for me. I've done the hard work for you by narrowing the list down to just these three: Article Document I haven't made much money yet writing for Article Document , but I really like it. I have written ten articles for them, and they included my "byline," which means my name has been published with each article. This allows me to have some writing samples to show prospective clients.

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 they pay you for upfront.
