As a Social Writer on Gather one has a rewarding experience which includes monetary compensation. That's very nice, of course, but it doesn't encompass the entire world of freelance writing on the web.
While Gather is a very open environment, writers may feel a bit constrained if they'd like to have ALL kinds of writing not only read but also appreciated - and even paid for. Who wouldn't? That's why it's a good idea to explore other venues of expression that lead to bylines, readership - and money too!
ConstantContent.com is such a site. On there you will find authors selling their content and customers looking for your unique voice and vision on virtually any topic on the web.
And the compensation varies. Ranging anywhere from $10 for a 200 word article to as much as a $100 for longer pieces. Even more, if the article is in demand or unusually detailed. AND ConstantContent.com also offers long term writing gigs from clients with niche market sites needing ongoing content. You may even land a telecommuting writing job! Stranger things have happened...
So give ConstantContent.com a try if you've got the writing itch that can't always be scratched in that one sweet spot.
You won't be disappointed.
