I don't do much on AC lately, mainly because I have other projects I'm working on and, to be frank, AC isn't exactly the top stuff. But it's not bad if I have an extra 15 minutes and want to make a quick few bucks. And it really is a good place to go if you are just trying to gain some traction, and are in need of extra cash. My regular, desperation-fueled postings on AC five years ago are what brought me to the attention of a blogging leader, and the entire reason I'm a professional blogger today. Plus, I make about $40 a month for pageviews on posts I wrote up to five years ago. So I really can't knock it too much. AC has been good to me.
How We Can Possibly Win iPads Together
Associated Content is having a fun contest in which it is possible to get an entry to win an iPad. I get an entry when you sign up for AC using this link and publish at least one article by May 31. You can earn entries for winning a different iPad by being a new contributor and publishing stories by the end of the month.
They pay often, and through PayPal, and I can tell you that there were many months when I was starting out in 2005 that AC's timely payment allowed us to buy groceries and pay the power bill. So if you are looking for a way to earn a little extra money, maybe win an iPad, and maybe help me win an iPad, head on over and sign up for AC :)
