In looking at the names of all those top submitting authors, I admit to being puzzled why women are not writing more.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Yeah, that is an interesting dichotomy for sure, considering we have more female writers than male writers as an overall whole (gut feel), yet the male writers dominate the volume.

Perhaps we should put a voluntary Male or Female field in the member database to ask authors to tell us their gender so we can understand better our own author demographics.

Majority of the credit goes to our dev & editorial team! They do all of the heavy lifting around here. :-)

Hi Chris

Thanks for providing a source for me to publish my knowledge…I had a meeting with a potential client this week that found me because of an article I published with you.

I’ve posted on 10 different sites. Yours is the best, by far. It’s the easiest to navigate, has the “auto” entry feature so I don’t have to keep adding the same info, like the bio, and posts the quickest of all of them.
Chris, you really did your homework on this site. As someone who spent the last whole year designing my own ( I appreciate the details.
It’s only going to get better, I’m sure. Thanks for giving me a place to show off my writing skills. I’ve written 6 books and still enjoy article-writing for the immediate impact and oppertunity to reach many new readers.
Thanks again and warm regards,

Hi –
Found your website by accident and I’m enjoying every word of it! So please explain something to me: I’m a freelancer and one of my many gigs is that of a content producer for Associated Content. I’m on my way to having my best month ever with 100 articles for September! The thing is — how can I use your site to get more people to see my work on AC. Or can I? Obviously, the more clicks my content gets the better is for them and ultimate i’ll get paid more. Thanks in advance!

Depends on what your license terms are with AC? Meaning, do you have the right to syndicate or use the content you produce for them?

While it appears they (AC) don’t allow deep linking, we do. You could submit hundreds or thousands of articles to us and deep link to your AC content if you wanted and then you’d not only get access to our traffic but also to our syndicated distribution power of your content being picked up by other related publishers who agree to keep your links and content in tact.
