AdAstra update

I recently discovered a new content-writing provider, AdAstra. Basically, the site will provide a host of content-writing jobs. AdAstra writers can then claim these jobs, if the price is right for them.

It's a nice system for a few reasons: First, writers have to apply to AdAstra as if they were applying for any freelance job. Secondly, the people behind AdAstra ask writers what rates they're comfortable writing at. This way, writers won't be asked to take on jobs with rates that are too low. Finally, AdAstra acts as the middleman here, handling payment.

Last week, I turned in my first job for them. Today, my payment showed up in my Paypal account, four days ahead of schedule. That doesn't happen often, so I'm thrilled.

AdAstra is having its official opening in October. So hopefully, there will be more jobs posted. (There are no jobs available at this moment.)

So far, I've been quite pleased with AdAstra. If you're interested in learning more about them, visit the company's homepage here.


  1. Glad you had a good first experience with us, Dan. I hope it's not the last.

    We've set the official launch date for October 13 and I'm lining up some projects in advance of the occasion, too.

    If other writers are reading this and are interested in working with us in the future, Dan provided the link for the team member site.

    The client-facing site, for those who need high-quality, original content is here:

    Ad Astra Traffic

    The site will be fully operational before the 13th.
