    I'd just like to give some advice for you people using AC out there.

    It takes me 15 minutes to rewrite an article (around 400 words).

    I rewrite 2 articles on each weekday(30 minutes of work), and 4 articles on each day of the weekend (1 hour of work).

    If everything goes well... I'd be getting $3 per article which means around $50-$60 a week.

    Yeah seems like very little but I don't invest too much time.

    Here's what I do:

    I open a txt file and copy and paste the article.
    I open another txt file right next to it and I start typing whatever comes to my mind while I read the article.

    Don't rewrite articles about "How to make money" or something that everyone writes about. Rewrite an interesting or useful article, e.g., tutorials, yoga, etc.

    Technology is the best area to write about.

    Well... that's it. I'm only 14 years old so it's pretty good. Before, my mom would give me $15 a week for lunch. I'd have to get the crappy cafeteria lunches *YUCK!* Now that I bunch of money, I COULD go out to eat with my friends for lunch everyday (there are two shopping centers nearby, school is open campus so we can leave whenever we don't have class).

    Problem is this: You have to be a Paypal member for 2 months before you can get a Paypal debit card. I really want one ^_^.

    Judging by the quality of his English I doubt he has many problems with grammar. :)

    Good job man. This post was very well written. Kind of surprised you're only 14. Shouldn't have a problem hitting $3 an article.

    Hey gbmack,

    I am totally impressed with you young man. I'm almost 4 times your age and am learning something new from you. Just getting started with AC myself and soaking up all the info I can. Well said and well written. Also, I'm glad to see you didn't feel it necessary to ask for "thanks"...so, for that I'm gonna thank you.

    Regards,
    ironlifter76:coffee:

    Only 14 and already earning your own money. That's cool!

    Nice advice, by the way.
