Changes at Suite101

Suite101 remain one of the best places online to write and earn money. The requirements have undergone some changes lately, so I wanted to be sure to tell everyone.

Suite101 finally did away with the minimum article requirements. They were requiring 10 articles a quarter. Now, they just allow you to write there whenever you wish. You can't go inactive. I've been saying for years that minimums aren't necessary. If you give writers a quality site to write and earn, they will flock there. You will not need minimums.

Suite101 has also tightened up their requirements for citing sources. They used to let articles without sources slide through and they have warned that it is a requirement for all now.

For those of you interested in writing at Suite101. Here is a little more about what you can expect as a writer and the application process.

BrightHub's Commissioned Content

At the beginning of this month, I was very excited to receive an email inviting me to write commissioned content for BrightHub. What is commissioned content? According to the invitation commissioned content is a separate BrightHub channel.

You don't apply to this channel as you do to all the other BrightHub channels, you must be invited by the managing editor. The content written in this channel doesn't get published on BrightHub's website either. It is published on a 3rd party website. To me, it is like Helium's marketplace. BrightHub offers chosen writers the opportunity to write for other websites at a higher rate.

What is that rate? $20 for 400 words. Not too shabby. I normally prefer residual payment, but at 5 cents a word, who could resist? It's an amazing opportunity and I'm proud to say that I'm one of BrightHub's current 59 commissioned content writers. Just one more perk of writing for the big green Hub!
