When All Else Fails, Write for Content Mills
Last week was a slow week for me as far as writing is concerned — neither Wordgigs nor Crowd Content had a lot of work, so I was forced to do a little writing for a lower-paying content mill that I haven’t written for in about three years. I’ll discuss that, as well as some other accomplishments I had this week, in this story.
I made $1.86 on Crowd Content
A piece I had written a while back was finally approved, so I made a whole $1.86 this week on Crowd Content. I’ve written one piece on Wordgigs, which has also been kind of slow this week, that I’m still waiting for approval on.
I started writing for Textbroker again.
If you’re a writer, you may be familiar with this content mill. I had signed up with them three years ago and done some writing with them, but haven’t written a lot for them in a while. But, since work has been slow with the other two sites, I decided to do a little work with them again this week. The good news about them is they always have a good amount of content, so I should be able to make a good bit with them when the other two are slow.
I looked at a few writing jobs.
One that really intrigued me was a staff writer job for a company called Apricot Law, Inc. However, they require their writers to write between 4,000 and 5,000 words a day — I’m not sure if I could write that much at this point, especially if the posts I’ll be writing require a lot of research, so I decided to set a goal to start working on getting my writing up to 5,000 words per day, whether it comes from writing for clients, or for posts on Medium or my blogs.
I signed up on Guru.
This to me is a more positive step towards getting better-paying writing work, but we’ll see. I found out about them when I got an alert in my Inbox about a job that was posted on their website that I might like. I didn’t have an account the site already, so I had to create one.

Creating quality content for busy business owners. - I have been working from home for different companies for over 10…
I got a response about this job and was told to contact someone on Skype about it. I will keep you all informed about what happens with this job.
I started getting my office more organized.
I bought this adjustable desktop shelf from Amazon and put it together this weekend — I think it looks pretty good!
Not the best picture, I know, but it was taken with a phone.
Not sure what I’m going to do with this other disorganized corner of my desk, leaning very strongly towards getting another adjustable shelf like the one I have pictured above.
That’s about it for my accomplishments for last week, hope everyone has a great week!
