    Actually I am not a beginner writer but I like to write my own posts for my website and would like to pay some money for somebody to read them and comment before publishing them.

  2. You have gave some wonderful sites for first time writers to get noticed. I agree that if people want to get their work published, that this is a good starting point or even if you haven’t had any published work and have been writing for a while and trying to get noticed, you should submit your work to these place. Great job on your helpful article.
