Do I need to be a college grad?
No. I don't care if you went to college, trade school, or dropped out when you were 11. I only care if you're a great story teller and can evoke a reaction from readers.
If you can tell a good story filled with facts, humor, know what you're talking about, and can run spell check/Grammarly, then you're qualified.

Here's a writers guideline for a news story at this link.
How much do I get paid?
We pay writers/content curators using one of two systems - 1) a pay per approved content system that pays a flat fee for each approved item, or 2) a RevShare performance based earning system for their approved submissions. Pay Per Content pays more up front. RevShare pays more over time.
We have a custom stats system that partners can access to see their stats and earnings.
Check the "RATES" page, when you login, to see current rates as they fluctuate with the ad market.
We promote the best content to our social media pages to help members get views to increase your earnings. If you're on a Pay Per Content plan, then we still promote your work, but your earnings are a flat fee.
What about the other rules?
You can write/submit as much as you want and build up your earnings, however we approve and publish content on our schedule. If we have 20 videos uploaded at once, then we might only publish a few today, then a few tomorrow, and few the next day, etc.
We don't accept every submission. If it doesn't fit our website, is copied from somewhere else, is outdated, or is poor quality - then will not be approved and will be deleted without notice. Some article submissions are sent back to the writer for corrections.
No adult content is accepted.
Please keep language clean and professional.
How do I get paid?
- We pay via PayPal once per month for every account owed $50 or more.
