When I can find a string of topics I know well and can research and write quickly, the pay is great. When I first started, I was doing $20 to $25 an hour writing, but all the topics they have now (stock and bonds, mostly) are way out of my range of expertise, so not worth it to write them, as it would take too long to research. I did few yesterday that were easy topics for me, and ended up making $43 in about 2 hours. That's the kind of money I like. They haven't said anything mean to me, but I did get reminders about how to write titles and headings, and to not use first person. No problems with my writing so far. I must just have a great editor.
