Demand Studios

Yes, I like writing. I love everything about it. From the words on the page to the quirky people who also call themselves writers to late nights just me and my laptop. I want to write more because it is something that comes easily to me.

To this end, I have been researching other sites to write for that will help to expand my portfolio and put some money in the bank (or PayPal...I'm not picky). Today, I applied to write for Demand Studios. They contract with 60 other sites on the Web that buy content to publish or distribute. Currently, they are hiring writers to submit copy for the site eHow. Basically, the writer chooses an article title such as How To Tie Your Shoe, writes the article and submits for review and (hopefully) payment. Demand Studios will pay $15 for each article and you may submit as many as you like. Your queue can hold ten titles at a time and after each is reviewed it frees up a spot to add another.

I had read threads on different forums that indicated the wait to hear from Demand Studios was anywhere from several months to 3 to 6 hours. It all seems dependent upon how your application stands out; especially your writing samples. I submitted my application at 3:10 this afternoon and I had an approval email at 3:16!

So far, I have set up my account and submitted one article. I'm going to wait to see if that one is accepted or if the editors will give me some revising pointers. After I know for sure what they want in an article I'll jump in.

Visit Demand Studios to find out if this opportunity would be something you would enjoy.

I hope everyone is doing well. Please let me know if you have any questions about online earnings or a topic you'd like to see covered here!
