So As Most Of You Probably Know I Decided To Do A Little

Decent Essays
So as most of you probably know I decided to do a little experiment and see how much money I would make if I wrote for Associated Content. So let 's just get right to it. For the week I worked 43 hours, wrote 58 articles and I made $308.36. This comes out to: $ per article = $5.31 $ per hour = $7.17 I also crunched some other numbers just for the heck of it. Here is how much I made per article in different categories: Topic Articles Total $ Average Arts & Enter 1 $7.22 $7.22 Books 6 $34.98 $5.83 Gov & Hist 1 $8.02 $8.02 Movies 6 $32.73 $5.45 Religious 9 $49.64 $5.51 Sports 24 $111.10 $4.62 Television 5 $24.72 $4.94 Video Games 6 $32.19 $5.36 My conclusion to these numbers is that I 'm not sure it makes a…show more content…

If you 're fortunate enough to know the topic for the CSOs then that 's some easy $8 or $10 articles, which is more than my other offers were so they would improve your average. 4.
