You might remember this CP in the spotlight in early 2008 with his winning entry for the ‘Ultimate Call for Content’ contest. Rodney Southern has been a part of the AC world since July ’07 and is among the Top 1000 Content Producers for 2008. He’s been writing about movies, parenting, medical news and drumming up a slew of how-to articles over the years.
Besides being a prolific CP, Rodney is a full-time Dad, husband and freelance writer. I caught up with this busy cowboy to find out who in the world Rodney Southern really is:
SK: How did you get started with writing for AC?
RS: Originally, I was just surfing around the good old web, and came across an article by Pam Gaulin. It was very well done, and I reached out to her. Soon thereafter, I signed up and began my AC journey.
SK: Your favorite content category to browse at work:
RS: Well, I am a full time freelancer so I work from the house. My biological dad was not around very much when I was a kid, and I always promised myself that I would not make those mistakes with my kids. I got lucky, and was able to keep that promise through writing. That said, I am constantly looking through the Entertainment, Religion, and Sports categories. Also, any articles about animals or reptiles. Love snakes and spiders!
SK: Do you write for other online sites or publications or only on AC?
RS: I currently have a ton of outside clients, and also work for Demand Studios, Ehow, Helium (some), Hubpages, and three blogs. Most of my work now is through direct clients though as the money is much better.
