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!
