Claiming the Title of Writer

I have stepped out on a limb here and have submitted a sample of original writing to a website that is an "article and content writing service."

Whether a client needs new content for a business website, a blog post, technical content or more, the site offers a pool of authors from which to choose. The site claims to do business with a variety of clients, including publicly traded corporations, e-commerce and social media sites, and much more.

When one signs up to be a registered author, before being allowed to browse the jobs/projects, the sample is submitted to the site. It will take up to a week for it the sample to be rated, which is shown on your profile. It determines the cost to the client and the pay to the author.

I have to admit that I am a little nervous as I await my "grade."

Based on the samples that I have read, intended for the clients to choose a level of writer, I would guess that I will be rated at a three-star level. It would do my heart good to see four-stars, however.

Whatever the result, I will work with the site and learn more about search engine optimization (SEO) and the such. It is time that I learn how to be a better writer in today's market.

You will get at least a three for sure. It is fun to step outside of our comfort zone.

I wish you good luck and hope you get a four star for your submission.

I cannot consider myself a writer too. I am just a simple blogger that reads and writes something and anything under the sun.

From the articles you submit here, I would have thought top grades would apply!

There are some people who write for such sites and apparently these pay quite well.

Make sure to let us know in future posts how you made out. I'm really curious about how these sites work, though I'm not ready to submit anything quite yet. Good luck!

I have a friend who writes and earns good money from sales pitches. He can select his product to promote and is told how much will be paid per click or sale. It´s a lot of hard work, but does pay a decent reward. Good luck with your venture Coral, you are sure to earn a high score.

I haven't had the nerve to try this yet. I have some other projects to wrap up first before becoming a free-lancer. I wish you the best as you try this. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Sounds like the site for which I work these days.
