Digital Journal works just like Associated Content with a little difference on judging how much you are paid. You get paid to write articles and report news as a citizen journalist but there is not fix rate on it. Digital Journal is a revenue sharing site. Portions of the advertising revenue will be shared among the members. Basically if the site earns more money then you’ll get paid more. Of cause you also need to be rank high the get the most of it. The more you participate, the more you’ll get. That means you need to be active on the site to paid more. You post articles, share your thoughts, vote articles, debates to get to the top rank of the citizen journalist. The higher rank you are, the higher paid you get.
The revenue sharing concept feels like you are a part of Digital Journal. It makes me feel like I own a part of it. If the site earns more, then I earn more. Meaning that it is not between you and the site, it is more like you with the site. It creates a situation where both you and the site need to work together to earn more.
