Get Paid For Writing Articles


     Last year, while in the midst of making a final decision on whether or not to quit my full-time job, I stumbled upon Textbroker.  I thought to myself  "Here we go with another scam website that promises to pay you for working from home."  I decided to do a little research on the company and was prepared to read countless negative reviews about how people were scammed but something happened, I couldn't find anything negative about the company.  I spent the next half hour or so reading the positive reviews that people had left about Textbroker on numerous blogs and decided that they were worth giving a shot.  I mean, what was the worst thing that could happen?  

     I clicked on the Author's Registration tab and filled out all of the required information.  Next, I was asked to write a sample article which would be rated to determine my quality of writing.  Now, I don't claim to be the best writer out there, but I definitely know I'm not the worst.   I wrote a short article about shopping at clothing stores in my area and submitted the article.  A little while later I received an e-mail from Textbroker.com stating that I was accepted to their website as an Author and my overall rating was a 3 out of a possible 5.  I was elated!  I quickly logged back into their website and browsed around the many articles for my writing level. I chose to write a 300-word article review for the Lego: Prince of Persia collectible set.  It said that if my article was accepted I would be paid $3.00 for writing it.  That meant for every 100 words I wrote for Textbroker, I would be paid $1.00.  I did a Google search to find out some information about the new toy and began to write my review.  I was really surprised how fast I was able to come up with 300 words about an item I knew nothing about five minutes before.  Once I submitted my article I waited to hear back from Textbroker on whether or not it was accepted, not knowing how long the acceptance process was.  The very next morning I received an e-mail saying that it was in fact submitted and I was paid $3.00 for writing it.  

     In order to receive your payment from Textbroker.com you need to have accumulated at least $10.00 in your Textbroker account, which is great!  You get paid bi-weekly and the money is transferred over to your Paypal account within 24 hours of your payment request.  Textbroker states that it may take up to 3 days to receive your money, but I've always received it within 24 hours.  Now, remember that the only way you can get paid with Textbroker is by having a Paypal account.  You can sign up for one by clicking here.  Also, keep in mind that once you have earned $600 dollars from Textbroker that you'll need to fill out a W-9 tax form.  

     Since I began writing for Textbroker in late 2010 I have made a total of $1176.34.  Keep in mind that I only write in my spare time and I don't consider this a full-time job.  If I were to sit down and write for them 8 hours a day on a daily basis I could have made on average of $50.00 - $75.00 per day.  My first payout from them for a weeks worth of articles back in 2010 was for $290.30 which I was really proud of considering I never left my home to make that money.  You can register to become an Author with Textbroker.com by clicking here.  Give them a try today and see how much money you can make working from the comfort of your own home.
