As long as you're not grabbing something that requires endless link baiting or extensive requirements, then yeah, definitely. I've been writing there since November (until the amount of articles dwindled and I began to primarily work on DS) and am pretty fast with writing. Possibly even at Grandma's speed... except I don't have five stars, so I don't quite make as much as she does.

Still, though, Textbroker's gotten me a hair over $2,100 per month. If only I could put that same energy on Demand... :P

Well, you are doing really good if you are making 2000+ a month on TB. That is about what Saurus (on NJFM) has made over there in the past also, but I think she does more DS work now also for the same reason you stated.
I signed up for TB sometime in May and the first time I logged in there were over 3000 orders available. I thought 'Wow! Lots of work here, man'. But it dropped quick and I don't think it has gone higher than around 1700 since then.

No, you were right, but being on here kind of requires a bit of a veil over my identity, you know?

Eh, that name's not associated with DS in any way... I'm good.

Yeah, I created a pen name for my new blog. I set up that new design that Nick Roach created "Lightbright" from Elegant Themes. Have you ever checked out that site? It comes ready to go with taxonomies, so I changed the name and function of them to all text, and am going to set this blog up as a kind of mini CC for myself. Hopefully I can sell some articles this way and keep all the moolah.

I have indeed. I have a blog myself, though I don't really visit theme websites unless it's for ideas. I'm pretty good at making my own. :P

But yes, hopefully that works out for you and more writers start to sign up for it.

Do you know anything about GoDaddy or Network Solutions? Which would you recommend for hosting?
