Digital Journalist Application
Digital Journalist status will allow you to write articles and get paid for it. It's free to apply, but we are looking for quality writers and bloggers. You will be paid based on how much you contribute, but quality writing is key. We also work with other publishers and brands so opportunities extend beyond just digitaljournal.com.

all free to use (See this tutorial

As soon as you submit your Editorial Board will review your application. As a news site, Digital Journal is looking for writers who have a good understanding of spelling and grammar, and can show an ability to find and research relevant news. Once we review your application, confirmation will be sent by email (make sure you add firstname.lastname@example.org
to your address book so it does not end up in your spam/junk folder).
At the present time, we only issue payments via PayPal so please ensure your country accepts payments via PayPal before writing. You can check PayPal's complete list of countries in which it operates here.
