    I have just found this new writing site, that after spending nearly an hour taking a test to prove my worthiness! I was wondering if it was worth it! they pay you about 2 dollars each article if it is 300 words, but of course you have to write it about 3 times! is it worth it? thanks

    Hi,
    If I were you I would not entertain it.  They seem to want you too do all the work for little reward.
    If you like writing why not continue with Hubbing and perhaps you could earn some money from that!  At least you would not be wasting your time.
    Good luck any way.

    Isn't $2 for 300 words really low?

    I did it for about a week with London Brokers and then after I had submitted work they sent me an email, blocked my account and told me that my writing style is not what they are looking for (after I passed the half hours worth of tests!) I clocked up about $80 and believe me that was alot of article writing, 3 times and they only paid me $22 so I have rewritten my stuff and published some of it here....moral of my story dont go there. sad

      I had the same experience with this company. I wrote the requisite seven articles, made about $50, but after the trial period, they blocked my account saying the quality wasn't good enough. Then they didn't pay for the last three articles I wrote. I wrote about 10, 500 word articles for them that I had to "spin," rewrite, 3 times,  that’s really 1500 words for about $4. Now, that just isn't worth it. These article mills do pay up front, but the amount of work they expect is ridiculous for the low pay.

      I like your idea of rewriting the content to publish on a personal site. At least it won't have been a waste of a lot of hours of writing. They claim people can make $300 a week there, but I don't think I am even capable of typing that fast, let alone writing quality content.

      Hello Vicki

      Your account has been closed because of grammar errors, word usage errors, sentence structure errors, and punctuation errors in the articles you submitted to us. You have been paid $37.74 on 2010-11-26 which was the full amount we owed you for all articles. It is therefore not true that we haven't paid you. You also did violate our terms by rewriting articles that we have paid you for already and publishing them somewhere else.

    Those writing mills are awful, no point to them.

    I'm based in the UK, but $3 is indeed very low sad

    I personally have worked for them, and honestly they're a total scam. They have writers create a ton of article sfor absolutely nothing - and then they dont pay you! They give you the excuse of "someone" is looking into it... two months have passed- it must be really hard to figure out :S

      Hello deebusch

      if you make such anonymous false posts it's no wonder you get no reply.
