    Whew! I haven't been averaging 40 400 word articles for my blog and text broker per day. I have a 4 out of 5 rating and work hard to make my work the best. BUT!

    Can I make more outsourcing my abilities elsewhere? For some reason I have more confidence in my abilities to write on just about anything.

    Should I stay with Textbroker and doing small time things, or what is the next logical choice for me freelancing?

    Don't screw up that Textbroker account. You only get one. Personally I can't stand writing for them (too picky with keywords & such) but they pay pretty nice compared to what else is out there.

    You're best bet would be to find someone who runs a blog or website, and is willing to pay an extra few dollars to have good posts (and has the funds to actually pay for a decent supply of content). They ARE out there, there's just no classifieds or forum where you can instantly find a list of them.

    Try & throw up a few packs of articles on DigitalPoint. You wont make much, but every time you make a sale (and they do sell pretty easily), just ask what they're using the content for and if they need any more of it. Since most of the writers are crap (I've bought content on DP just to see what the competition is like. It's pretty bad), the buyer will more often than not be glad to pay a little extra for decent content. I had a guy I worked for for like 2 months I sold 5 articles at a time to for $35.

    But you wont see these buyers posting WTB threads, because they're smart and know they'll just get hammered by all the crappy writers. But they ARE there.

    And oh yea, stay away from crappy topics like "making money online" and "linkbuilding for idiots". Usually a techy niche works out well like iPhones or Web Hosting since they have decent affiliate programs related to them and the webmasters have a little more $$$ to spend on content because of it.

    T Y so much! Article packs? Just post them in the forum like "Iphone Article Pack 5 for $25"?

    Thats so much more than what I am making with text broker... for much, much easier work.

    Any more tips? I appreciate your advice so much, for even taking the time to read this post, let alone offer me advice is wonderful.

    My gf is writing for textbroker also. Do you always recieve payment from them? Have you ever had any issues with them?

    I was just wondering those two things. She does a great amount of articles, and I am just worried she we will not get paid. The money she has made is in her account, she just has not tried to withdrawl it yet.

    Why do you not start some of your own blogs? That was a suggestion from a nother member here about my girlfriend. If you can write articles, then you could build your own sites.

    text broker needs to get thier f'ing shit together -- I BUY articles and NEED them to auto post to a certain category on my blogs... they post into uncategorized no matter what. They don't care - went back and forth with tech support for like hours. Yeah, it does matter that this works, as I run a lot of client blogs and can't go around re-categorizing shit. They piss me the f off, obviously. might be a 3.0 issue. g-zuss

    So you have been paid by them, and never had any issues?

    Are there any ways I can start selling article packs sooner? To post on the forums I have to have been a member for over two weeks. Should I really try eBay?

    fcktheworld, what did you decide to do?
