Personal Money Store is looking for "well written newsworthy articles or insightful commentary on current events and news. Articles must be politically and religiously neutral. We are looking for technical writing, common sense writing and humorous articles."
Pay is $0.05 cents per word up to a maximum of $25 per article. These articles go into the official Google news. For articles that attract alot of attention, they claim to pay more to encourage the writer to produce more content. You can submit anonymously and the only requirement is a PayPal account or Google checkout account to receive compensation.
Visit the website for a ton of information on exactly what they are looking for, payment details, etc. Also, please note they don't pay for every submission, only the ones they publish. But, if you're a good writer, this shouldn't be much of a problem. This looks like a really nice opportunity. I'd take it on myself if my workload wasn't overflowing right now. If I decide to submit in the future, I'll update with more information. Good luck!
