Apparently since I haven't been keeping track of what's new with Associated Content, they've made a few changes. For one, I've noticed that many of the articles they'd posted before were paid content, are now no longer paid. It was one of the biggest reasons why I started writing articles for their website. I enjoy getting paid just like everyone else.
Still, I must say even with the no-pay on articles, they're still paying for website traffic to my articles which is nice. In fact it was so nice that I was actually jumping up and down at the $4 I was paid within a matter of a week for long past dues. Yep, excited over $4, kinda scary huh!
