I am writing on oDesk. I get paid 7.50 per article, and the topics are chosen for me. I can write as many articles as I wish to. I am averaging about 4 a day, and that is weekly about $225. Also, I was hand chosen for the job, and I had to complete a trial before I was hired. You could potentially earn much more, depending on how many jobs you take. You have to wait about 8 months before earning any money on Hubpages, and from what I hear, it could be about a dollar per article per month, but that is not guaranteed. It's all about ad traffic. I write on Hubpages for fun, and I write on oDesk for money. Does this help?
