Any email/bid without a test/sample article will be ignored, and you will not be considered for this or future projects. This is a paid trail test.
I am requesting 10 articles written. The purpose of this project is to find some writers for an ongoing project. In the future, I will submit topics suggested by my readers. For this trial run, I need one article concerning each of the topics listed below with the last one of your choice (anything you would like to show your creativity on). Keep in mind that my target audience is Women with children:

(9) Laugh Out Loud. Keyword:Laugh, Child, Friends, Cope, Demanding (This is not an error. 8 and 9 are the same. I want to see totally different articles on the same subject).
I am will to listen to any suggestions you may have. If you have written some successful stories that would pertain to my target market, or if you specialize in a particular field, such as health and fitness, let me know.
If your total bid amount for this project is greater than the amount you include in the GAF "Your bid for the total project" field, please state that clearly in the "Provide the details of your bid" field (NOT in a PM). If you plan to outsource this project to someone else, I want to be made aware of that as part of your bid. Payment will be made via PayPal ONLY. All articles must be approved before they are accepted. If an article does not meet required specifications, the writer is obligated to edit and correct to bring product up to quality and readability standard. Each article will be delivered in MS Word format. Upon completion of the project, complete ownership of all articles with complete copyright shall be transferred to us. We will have exclusive rights to edit, format and use at our discretion. You will still remain the author of the article and noted as a freelance author, if desired. If desired and upon completion of 5 of the 10 articles, we are willing to pay you half (1/2) of the agreed upon amount. We have a large number of ongoing projects and the right candidate can look forward to many additional writing projects. We are looking for a long term relationship and only professional writers need inquire.
--------------GENERAL ARTICLE STRUCTURE REQUIREMENTS ------------
___ Length: 450-550 words each. This is the length of the article CONTENT, and does not include the article title or sub-title (described later below). Please, no filler words just to add content.
___ When you have completed 5 articles place them into a zip file and email them to me.
___ Each article is to be written in its own file. Use the keyword phrase as the file name. For example, if the keyword phrase is 'life cycle treadmill' then the file name for the article would be 'life cycle [url removed, login to view]'.
___ Article file format needed is MS Word documents or (.txt).
___ Articles need to be written in very good grammatical & fluent US English (not British English; e.g. "behavior", not "behaviour"; "favor", not "favour"; "while", not "whilst", "spoiled", not "spoilt", etc.).
___ Do not write the articles in third person.
___ Article content should be informative, easy to read for most anyone, should "flow" naturally for the reader, and be free from any typing, spelling, and grammatical errors, with correct English punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure.
___ The article should not read as a press release for a company when the keyword contains a company name. For example, for the keyword 'Life Cycle Treadmill' the article should not sound like an advertisement or press release issued by Life Cycle Corporation.
___ Do NOT use article "spin" software to produce these articles. Seldom does such software produce content that reads naturally for the reader. (If you require the use of article "spin" software, please do not bid on this project.)
___ Articles must be 100% your original work and free of copyrighted, plagiarized, or licensed material from a 3rd party of any kind, including offline material. I verify originality.
___ Please minimize usage of UPPER CASE IN THE BODY OF THE ARTICLES and also the use of exclamation points (!!!), as both of these styles tend to communicate that the writer is yelling at the reader.
___ The articles must not contain any profanity or lewd comments.
___ Each article needs to be focused on one specific keyword phrase. I will supply the list of keyword phrases and the article titles for this project. Write one article per keyword / title pair.
___ Please use the keyword phrases exactly as I provided them, even if a phrase does not appear to make sense or has an apparent typo. More keyword details are below.
___ Where it makes sense and flows naturally in the article content, please include one URL within some of the articles pointing to well-known authority web sites related to this niche. No more than one is necessary in any given article. (This is not a requirement, but a preference where it makes sense in an article). I would perfer in addition to having one URL reference in the article, having two or three at the end of the article.
___ You should not use the same paragraphs or facts in multiple articles. Each article needs to be unique, even if the keywords for each are similar. (Some of the keyword phrases WILL be similar. In that case, each article based on the similar keywords can include different aspects, angles, or nuances concerning the similar keyword topics.)
--------------SPECIFIC ARTICLE STRUCTURE REQUIREMENTS-------------
___ Provide one space after each period, colon, or semi-colon.
___ Periods should be inside of quotes.
___ When placing three dots at the end or middle of a statement (e.g. "The missing amount was found later..."), there should only be three dots; no more, no less.
___ When using dashes to separate a thought, use two in a row(--).
___ There is never a space before a period or comma.
___ No paragraph indentation.
___ One blank line between each paragraph.
