Writing For Digital Journal
Digital Journal is a Canadian-based website that displays news and current affair articles written by its own team of editors. To become an editor you would need to submit a sample of the kind of work you do, and if approved you can become an editor. To get paid extra cash from Digital Journal you will need to write several high quality articles that get plenty of hits and likes from readers. Another method of earning more through this news and media organization is to submit your own “special” news, where you interview someone and take your own photo images which you would use within your article. Both Triond and Digital Journal pay out once a month, with Triond paying out on the 5th and Digital Journal on the 1st.
When you submit an article to the editors of Digital Journal they will want to see spelling, grammar and an article that is an interesting read. Be careful not to copy and paste something straight off the web as the editors will run your sample through copy software and check for plagiarism. Once you have been selected as one of the editors, you will need a PayPal account which you must use to receive payment from Digital Journal.
Each article you do must contain at least three links from various news sites that you will have gained your information from. It is a good idea to bookmark all the news sites, so that you keep abreast of all the latest developments in the news. You should regularly look at CNN, ABC, Fox and Reuters to catch breaking news articles, which you must then rewrite in your own words for the news media site.
If you can get to interview someone who is in the news or take your own photographs, it will ultimately make you more revenue. You can even get paid for opinion-based articles where you write on a topic forming your own opinions on it. There was a time when these articles went paid but that has changed now, so you can still pick up revenue for writing your own rants.
You can also boost your points in Digital Journal by making sure you log in every day, like someone else’s articles and address comments in the public forum below each article. Remember, there is no limit as to how many articles you produce each day, so you can make more money by writing valuable, interesting news articles.
