Ok, so I did just get PAID, but it was a pretty small amount. I’ve written a few articles on associated content. It’s basically a site where the members are the writers and people can either get paid up front in addition to performance payments, or you can option for performance payments. I received an up front payment today. I am interested in using associated content not to necessarily make gobs of money (although it could be a good source of alternative income), but to hone my writing skills, or lack there of. You can sign up here. You can view the article that received an up front payment of $5.68 here. I originally found out about Associated Content from Zachary at See Me Get Rich.
