My 2 year AC-versary!

I didn't realize until yesterday that I'd bypassed my AC-versary without even realizing it.  September 5, 2010 marked two years since I first begrudgingly signed up for AC.  After having dealt with Helium for so long, I was weary of signing up for anything else.  It didn't help that out of the first few articles I submitted, one was declined for upfront and the other two upfront offers were really low.  I was discouraged, deleted all my submissions and remained one of those CP's (we were called "content producers" then), who didn't write anything for months.  In January of 2009, I came back to AC with a little bit more of an open mind and I began writing and submitting.

Over the last two years, I've learned a lot, I've gained confidence enough that I ventured out into other projects.  Now I actually feel like I'm doing something worthwhile not just as a job but as a career.  And the best part is that I get to do all this and focus on my boys which is more important.

Thank you, AC!

  1. Congrats Pam! My 2 year AC-versary is coming up in October. Hard to believe that I was thrilled to make my first $3 for an article, and now I pretty much make my living from writing! We've come a long way!
