I agree. Associated Content is a good site. It probably will not pay your bills, however, unless you are a very good writer and also good at promoting your articles. I have found the compensation for most get paid to write gigs too little to bother with. As for other get paid to...sites (like get paid to take surveys and get paid to open emails,etc.) are generally scams or pay so little that they are not worth it (at least not to me, and yes I have tried a few of them). If you want to work on line, better to look for legitimate jobs that you can do online (virtual assistant, technical support, those kinds of things).
