    I started with AC a few days ago and submitted two articles to see what happened - I got paid $3.15 for each of them. I am very pleased with the pay rate I got as it only took roughly 30 mins to complete both articles.

    - Both articles were just over 500 words and the content were about stuff that had been gaining media attention recently. In this instance I wrote about the "paranormal activity movie" and "that falcon balloon kid".

    I recommend everybody to get themselves a microphone and use either the pre-installed windows speech recognition or something similar. Nobody wants to type boring articles by hand. I also tried to sound like I knew what I was talking about by using lots of fancy big words in my articles.

    I am gonna submit 6 articles a day now - I will report back on my progress.

    Good Luck!

    Kudos to you!

    Keep up the good work. I have submitted one about a day ago and have yet to hear from them.

    Hopefully I can jump on the bandwaggon

    intence, I'm not sure myself that's what I was wondering. It seems like many people have been getting 24 hour turn arounds. I'm going to stay optimistic about the whole ordeal and hope for the best.

    I hope I hear from them soon as I want to start submitting 6 articles per day.

    After you accept the payment, go to your payment tab. Verify the payments button is there. Click it. Then AC automatically pays you the amount owed. Congratulations on such high offers with the first ones submitted.

    Everyones review times will tend to vary based on what niche the content is written on and how backlogged that particuliar editor is. Again, 1-10 days is totally normal nowadays.

    Good luck if you dive into it!

    Yeah, I've been using the speech recognition. I'm practicing using it right now. I find it that it is more accurate than dns.

    I think it's going to make writing articles a lot faster.

    I have a website that I link at the bottom of most of my articles and AC hasn't caught on yet. If I write on a health care topic, then I add the link. Can't hurt ;)

    I think AC is onto the "multiple accounts" thing. Yesterday I tried to log onto my two AC accounts and both were blocked saying I needed to w9 verify, which is BS considering I only made about $100 or less from each account.

    They've been onto the multiple accounts thing since day one actually. Something you did triggered them to look deeper into your accounts.

    Fire up some new ones and keep on rockin ;)

    I wouldn't get too excited -- AC usually doesn't accept things they consider having a "short shelf life". I wrote an article on the Gaza War back in January and then on Healthcare Reform. Both ended up as read-and-bleeds and I got no upfront payment. :(

    They prefer content that's going to be "green" and have longterm staying power, but they also accept content with a short life span. It just depends on the content itself.

    Cool, thanks for the interest streetjournal.
