I started my online writing career in February, 2008 when I published my first article at Associated Content. While I haven't been terribly active over there, I have written some articles that I am very happy with. Here is the list of my 5 favorite articles. I have included links to the articles below.
This is the first article that I wrote for Associated Content and I am very pleased with the way it came out.

"Rush has had a distinctive sound since it released its self-titled debut in 1974. The title of the first track on this album, Finding My Way, however, turned out to be extremely prophetic. Rush had not yet done so (and to this day, is still finding it)..."
This is my first article about FreeRice.com. Since I wrote this article, FreeRice.com has undergone some changes, but the premise remains the same.

"Since October 7, 2007, FreeRice.com has been testing the vocabulary skills of people worldwide. In the process, they have been able to donate over 20 billion grains of rice..."
I wrote this article in response to what had been called a "Call for Content." Associated Content wanted a top 10 list of movie quotes from their contributors.

"When I began to mull over what my favorite movie quotes were, I began to realize that they are all from the same movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail..."
This was a review of an online role-playing game that I used to play. I am more pleased by the first page of this article than just about anything else that I have written for Associate Content.

"The world of Elanthia is only reachable to earthlings like us via a portal provided by Simutronics. This portal is called Gemstone IV..."
I was inspired to write this article by a letter that my grandfather had written to his adopted daughter, my mother, when she was less than one year old.

"Have you ever felt the love that says, "No matter what you do, I will always love you..."
Writers write in hopes that readers will read their stuff. I hope that you will do that for me - and enjoy doing so.
It doesn't take much to make me tear up - loved your Z# 5, Greg.

Congrats on the front page! FYI - if you're reading this on the LM5 homepage you'll need to click the title and go to the list to see the links to the articles most proud of :)
A great idea for a list. And your topic choices are well-rounded. (must admit, I have no idea if Rush is a person or group.lol.) Congrats on page one!!
Enjoy the front page.
Good idea on a top five list. We all have those articles that stand out and is some of our best work.

Just returning to congratulate you on the front page spot.
And now you have a list you can be proud of for making the front page feature! Congrats!
I love freerice.com. I use it with my fourth graders to teach vocabulary, multiplication facts, and that charity is an important habit to get into :)
Find me on ac. Keep up the great 5's lists.
All great ones on this list.
Great list of lists you are most proud of.
I followed your link to the For God So Loved the World article (didn't even realize at first it wasn't a LM5) and it made me cry. I have always told my children, "I love you no matter what" and I do not know how people get by day by day in this troubled world who do not know the love of Christ. Thanks so much for sharing. So sweet, so simple, you have made me day.
A well done list which is easy to see why you are most proud of these written words.
I was pretty teary eyed reading that excellent article, For God So Loved The World. Very moving article.
Very nice list of the articles that you Should be very proud of. They are all nice articles. Well done list, all five of them. H5.
