    They pay $10.00 up front for articles 300 to 750 words in length, $1.00 for every quality backlink to an article and then the author gets 80% of residuals from advertising on the article.

    Anyone have any experience with them?

    Im a BrightHub (green living) writer, i was referred by another hubpages user.

    whats missing from teh stellar write up (lol) is every topic you want to write has to be pre-approved, and accepted afterwards by an editor and their is a very limited number of articles accepted each month - (the topics have to be spun by the editor the month before you write them)

    I do much better with constant content

    I joined and created a profile but have never written anything there - I can't recall why I decided not to.

    Thanks, Marisa and Deartful. Except for the "limited number of articles accepted each month", it sounds an awful lot like Demand Studios.

    I like demand much better. But since I write for a limited niche (green living)at Brighthub perhaps my experience of limits is more than a writer who got accepted for a more general niche or at least a more popular topic

    lol, and im the artful dodger - somebody already took the other variants so i went francais

    I started to write for Brighthub but their education channel was a farce.  Their CE there is really bad and most of the articles look like ed course homework.  I wasn't impressed.  As for Demand Studios, I wrote for them for years and may write an article here and there for them in the future, but I'm not the least bit impressed with them and only use a pen name because I'd be embarrassed to have my name attached to anything through them.  So far I've been refusing to do the new bio requirements, so I guess it's possible that they may fire me before I have a chance to write for them again.  I personally write for Remilon who pays by the hour instead of article, and I'm loving it for now.  Although, I will say they rarely hire new writers because they promote quality over quantity and tend to keep the writers they do hire so the turnover is incredibly low.
