It's been a while since we visited the 'citizen journalist / publisher' website Associated Content. The interface has been improved, it appears they're getting some advertisers (along with adsense) ... and we were pretty impressed with the current Board of Directors.
Lots of neat stuff can be found here. While we doubt too many of the bloggers are making big bucks, it is a way to get your name out there. There is a lot of 'interesting' reading, although when visiting topics that we are highly familiar with, we found some outright errors and highly opinionated (bias) articles.
Certainly still worth checking out with some real great ongoing potential.
