man i have had no luck with ac. my first 2 articles they bought but from then on it was down hill. they either didn't want them, told me to site sources or just plain called it copying. then the last batch i did they did the same but this time they put me on notice that i was coping to much or plagurism. yes i took the cooking recipes out of my local newspaper but i reworded everything but the receipe stuff. now they say every article i submit will be looked at even harder so for me its not worth it. good luck to all those that are making it and watch out. thanks for all the helpful info here but i guess i didn't use it wisely enough.
