This post is my ADD ON to a post by fellow LB member, best writer titled:
For me, if it were not for that fact that doors began to open because of the various online writing and blogging communities that allow users to join FREE, I am not sure I would have ever found a means of generating income from my online writing work.
My first attempts at earning income online were devoted to building affiliate marketing websites and advertising products. I wanted to write and there were sites looking for writers, but to sign up you had to pay a fee. But as the old expression goes … “Persistence pays!” … one day I finally found a community that let me sign up free and only asked that I supply them a writing sample. Unfortunately that collaborative publishing site is now defunct. But I will always be grateful they gave me “writing wings”.
With regards to the post mentioned above, published by bestwriter, I would like to add:
For social blogging, my time is now divided between Literacy Base and Niume.
I really like the fact that you can earn income for ALL of your activity at Literacy Base and not just for blogging.
By contrast: At Niume you have to get 1000 views to earn one dollar, and you can also earn for referring new members. That doesn’t sound too attractive at first. But then when you realize that you can republish your original content from your blogs and direct traffic back to your blogs, the site looks pretty good! One person described it something like “dusting off your old posts and giving them life again”. I have content from years back that’s evergreen and still relevant for today’s readers. Why not republish the work??
For socializing, MyLot is fantastic not only because of its $5 cash out but because you don’t even have to write or start a discussion. Just jump in on a conversation that’s already lively. You should also use the “EXPLORE” option and find discussions by new members and discussions that have no comments. The money adds up fast and they do pay on the 15th of each month like clockwork! Can’t beat that!!!
To sum up My Experience?
- It’s great being here at Literacy Base.
- It’s also fun being at MyLot.
- Niume is a wonderful community as well.
But I’m still looking for more income streams.
That’s my plan! 🙂
At present, I have plans to revisit BitLanders. Created an account there, but left the site because payment was via Bitcoin. That has changed and now the owners offer payment via PayPal. It might be worth a restart. I plan to try it again!
