My first experience with online writing was on a site called Bubblews. Most of us are familiar with the site. It was really good learning and earning experience. For about a year, I earned almost $150-200 from the site every month. And then the site stopped paying. I lost almost $600 pending payments.
After bubblews, I stopped writing online. I tried a few sites like personapaper etc but nothing came close to bubblews. I again began actively writing online about a year back. I had quit my daily job and online writing was a good & constructive way to spend time though earnings were negligible.
Blogjob was a good site where I was paid thrice. When it stopped paying, it was a big jolt to many. Though the ones with adsense account are still writing there and earning through adsense.
I wrote quite a lot on literacybase and got paid here four times. I wrote on hubpages but the earnings are so slow that I have no hopes of ever redeeming there. Now I am removing my posts from hubpages and shifting them to my own site. I also wrote on blogbourne but deleted my account when I saw that they pay ridiculously low amount. My writing stint on expertscolumn also proved to be a failure as the earnings are super slow there.
I redeemed once at Niume but since it required only five lines, I didn’t mind the slow earning there. In between came tinycent. The site was really good in terms of pay rates. The admin seemed to be genuine but proved to be a big fraud. Not only I lost my payments but also all the articles which he so cleverly shifted to a new site which the old members have no access to. The experience with tinycent made me wonder if writing sites are to be trusted.
