I Just come across this site as an advertisement on my biz devlopment site. It has come up with a novel idea. They will pay you so that they can publish your content. A bit like a book publisher. I guess if you write material they thought they could sell. You may well end up having a book deal.
The site at the moment is a bit sparse and there is no affiliate deal. Having said that though navigation is logical.
The advantage of this site is that it takes work out of promoting your writing. I am going to give it a go and see if i can earn a few dollars or more. http://www.triond.com/
Ok an update here, I have just submitted an article to the website only to be told because I have submitted it on www.workconnexions.com they are not interested. As they explain below
“We regret to inform you that your content item, “An Easy Personal Backup Plan”, has been declined for publication for the following reason: Duplicate content. Identical content has been previously published on http://workconnexions.com/node/730. You may only submit content that has not been previously published in whole or in part, on the Internet..”
Which is shame as most of the content I generate does tend to get published elsewhere. I would imagine that any serious writer would have several outlets. I do think they are limiting their market.
