This post is a bit of a follow-up to my last post: Make Money Online With Freelance Writing Jobs. I discussed a bunch of ways in which you could write articles online and get paid. Today I’d like to expand a bit on one of the sites I mentioned, TextBroker.com.
TextBroker is a site that connects clients to authors; people that need content (articles) written, and people that want to write content (articles). Clients pay TextBroker, and in return, TextBroker pays their authors. You can sign up as an author with TextBroker, and get paid to write articles online. It is a great way to make money by working from home. However, please note that at this time, they only accept US residents and citizens. They pay via Paypal and you can cash out as soon as your balance reaches $10. Pay per article varies depending on what is required, but most average around $2.
After signing up, you will be required to write a short writing sample just to ensure that you’re qualified when it comes to grammar, punctuation, etc. Then after your article is graded, you will be given a “classification” in stars. This is like a grade that determines your level of writing. You will be allowed to complete articles where the client has requested a minimum classification of your amount of stars, or less.
Me personally, I love writing, but I just simply do not have the kind of time that is required to write many articles. Between a full time job, being a wife, running this blog, and making money online in other ways (like taking surveys, etc.), I simply do not have much time on my hands lately.
In fact, I have been a member of TextBroker for a long time now, and never got the chance to actually write an article until I was doing that blog post yesterday on Freelance Writing Jobs, and decided to take a second look through TextBroker. I actually found an article I was interested in writing and it took me about 15 minutes or less to complete it!
Today I’m here to post that my article was accepted by the client and the money has been credited to my account!
I got the following email today.
The customer has accepted the article “Ways to Make a Personalized T Shirt”.

And here’s a screenshot of my earnings in my account on TextBroker.
In my opinion, the best thing about TextBroker is that the articles are not hard and do not take a long time to write. Most of them only require about 250 words. The pay per article might only be about $2 compared to other freelance writing sites, where you get paid about $15 per article. But on most other freelance writing sites, they require a lot more words, and that the article meet an extremely professional standard before it is accepted.
Another good thing I like is that it is much more flexible than other freelance writing sites. Meaning you choose to write articles whenever you have the time, and you can choose the topic you would like to write about.
I’m hoping to write a few more articles before the month is over. Let’s hope I find the time. This can be a nice little boost to my total income for August.
