Aspiring Writers- Seed.com

Hey Everyone!
Just got back from a AOL/Seed luncheon at SXSW.

Seed.com is a wonderful new program launched through AOL that lists available paid online work for freelance writers and photographers. I was acquainted to Seed through Spinner.com who was utilizing the platform for their SXSW contributor coverage.

This is a terrific and legit program for aspiring writers and photographers and is growing every day! Stop by and take a look!

Here is an example of work I did through Seed/Spinner. I interviewed a wonderful band out of San Francisco called Minipop. They will be playing SXSW at Aces Lounge on Saturday at 10PM. If you like Mazzy Star or dreamy pop/shoegazing, then you’ll dig this band.

    I love Minipop! I don't know how SXSW works… do you have to have a badge or can you just go?

    Hey Amanda- Yes and no. The music portion draws bands from all over the world, so there are more non-official shows than official shows going on until Sunday. You do not need to buy a badge/wristband. Just RSVP for parties and get well prepared for craziness! A good place to start is do512.com

    thanks very much for the seed info – that's a pretty good way to keep writing skills (apart from the often self-absorbed stories on a blog, haha) intact whilst making some extra cash. AND getting my name out there. niiiice.

    i'm intrigued but suspicious of these things where you get nothing til you break a certain number, like with adsense where you get $0.000001 per click or something ridiculous like that.

    is the money really there and somewhat fair, or do you just end up working really hard generating copy for them for basically free?
