When the Internet first hit the world in a big way back in 1995 it was called the Information Superhighway. In recent years we tend to forget the information value of the web and look at the social networking benefits, shopping, marketing and gaming. Still, good information is worth money and while the web is full of information, it’s not all good and finding the good stuff can take a lot of valuable time. And time is, as always, money.
Julie Scott, a freelance writer I know via a LinkedIn writer’s group I belong to posted a link to a list of over 40 vetted web sites that pay writers to write. This is the value of real information. Julie has visited every site and checked them out and then collated them for us to put to good use. The list tells you whether they accept writers from just the USA or UK or anywhere int he world. All the sites pay for writing, they aren’t bid sites where you compete for the work with others, often bidding silly lowball numbers just to get a crack at a writing job (odesk and elance spring to mind).
So how much would you expect to pay for this vetted list? Given just one job might bring in $25 or more, I think the asking price of $2 is great value. Go to PayPal and put this email ( email@example.com ) into the payee’s panel and send Julie two bucks. She’ll send you the list as a .pdf file as soon as she checks her email and knows you bought. Just like we used to do it back in the ‘good old days!’ Tell Julie Perry sent you!
