You get paid based on the number of views your articles receive. At the moment you will be payed $8 for every thousand views. While we will promote your content for you, the more you share your articles, and our site, the better you will do.
You can also make money through awards, and through getting links back to KidTown Melbourne.
UPDATE: KidTown Melbourne gives an award to every author's first article!
Awards are given to really high quality articles. If an editor thinks that you have done a brilliant job of an article then they can give you a bronze, silver or gold award. These each have a different monetary value: $2 for bronze, $5 for silver and $10 for gold.
Don't be upset if you don't get an award for every article: it doesn't mean that we don't love your writing, it just means that there's a lot of competition.
It's completely up to you. Obviously the content needs to be suitable for kids, but beyond that use your own judgement. We'll happily take reviews of places in Melbourne Kids might enjoy, as well as recipes kids can cook, and games they like to play.
If your kids have a favourite book or movie, why not write about that? It might help other parents find things for their kids to do.
