Self Avenue welcomes articles on personal development/self help and discovery. There is strong demand for people to improve their lives one way or another :) We are a personal development/self improvement website/portal.
Writers must have a good command of English.
Most subject matters are fine, but we do not accept articles of an explicit nature. Mature content and anything related to sex or witchcraft will not be published.
We also welcome quirky fun type articles like quizzes and book/film reviews, provided they're related to personal development.
Self Avenue does not necessarily endorse the views or subject matter of author's articles. Information should not be viewed as definitively authoritative.

Yes you are paid via PayPal for sharing your articles. Payment is in proportion to the number of people who read your articles.
The CPM (Clicks Per Month) value is the amount you will receive for every 1000 readers. You do not have to wait for an article to receive 1000 readers to be paid, it's just how the CPM value is expressed. Your account is adjusted each time someone reads one of your articles.
You can view your account balance on by clicking on "My Account".
See 'Awards' and 'What are Supporters?' in the FAQ for other ways to earn in addition to CPM.
To request payment first enter your payment information on your settings page.
Payments are made using PayPal, however Australian residents can also opt to be paid by bank transfer.
On the first of each month if your balance is over $50 (or 50 GBP) an account is created and placed on your Accounts page.
Go to 'My Account'
Monthly Accounts highlighted in yellow.

Go to 'Request Payment'
Payment is then made on the 1st of the following month as long as the invoice is submitted on or before the 10th. This delay is to allow for the time it takes to receive payments from advertisers.
For instance your January account would be created and placed on your accounts page on the 1st of February. If you submitted an invoice before the 10th of Feb payment would be made on the 1st of March. If the invoice was submitted after the 10th of Feb, payment would be made on the 1st of April.
If your balance is less than $50 on the 1st of the month, then it will be carried over to the following month.
Maximum monthly payout at this stage is $75 - any balance carries over to the following month.
For those not living in Australia: On your settings page in the 'ABN' field type in 'Non Resident' to receive payments larger than $75
I have logged into my account, and my articles have only made me 2 cents each, what's going on?
After submitting an article for publication, many new writers are perplexed when they visit their account page the next day to see that they've only earned a few cents.
Because each article is paid in proportion to the number of people who have read it, it can take a while for earnings to accumulate.
The average article earns around $8 per year. That's only a couple of cents per day. Patience and persistence is the key.
Work on building up a library of articles that will keep attracting readers for months or years, and your readers and earnings will start to build up more quickly. Piece by piece. Writing for the web is the future.
1. Find the best image/s for your article. Fill in the box that asks ' What is in the image?'
2. Don't be shy, tell everyone you know about your articles. Once the article has been published, you can click on links to Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and e-mail to make it easy to share.
3. If you have a blog or wesite, post a small teaser about your article and link to it. Add a Self Avenue button to your blog or website and link to your Self Avenue profile – where all your published articles will be listed.
4. Links on FaceBook pages and Twitter accounts and other social media can increase the exposure of your article and generate more readers.
How will my articles be promoted? Can I place affiliate links in my articles?
Share and like your articles via Social Media: Facebook and Pinterest at this stage. They can also share your article/s via Twitter and/or via e-mail.
Nearly all of the articles on Self Avenue are search engine optimised; that is appearing on page one or two of Google under the relevant search term. When uploading your images, please also use the relevant keywords. This is why original images are more preferable where possible.
Affiliate links are not allowed as they encourage articles which are written around the affiliate links, rather than for the benefit of our readers.
