You need to write more articles and need to publicise them. Tell your friends, relatives and coworkers or anyone. Add it in blogs and forums. Write quality articles. 2 articles is too too low to see any money. Write more and keep on writing. I would suggest you to read articles by BARBARA WHITCOCK(Spelling may be wrong) on How to write quality articles and to market the articles. I suggeest you to change that screen name "niki-nonsense". You need to give your real name to exhibit professional writing. With this username,most people would not be interested in reading articles. Helium = rising quality with professional serious writers. It is difficult for me too to rise to that level. But hardwork will always pay. Write good articles and with 25 such articles, you would be making money each day.

You need to promote your articles on your own too and you need to bring visitors to read your articles and you will be paid by view. I remember it's like 4 views = a penny, therefore you should really link your blog (if you have one) to your individual articles so that people could read your work!

Sometimes it takes a couple weeks for Helium to get the articles set up so that your earnings are showing. So be patient and see what happens OK? In order to make any money on Helium you do also have to promote you articles because if nobody sees them they will not generate earnings. Some people do not enjoy the promoting, but it goes with the territory. Nothing in life is free, except here at myLot, lol.

keep posting them , eventually you will get hits, I was inactive for 10 months because I didn't really get how things worked, but I have been back for a week and have made about 40 cents or more a day on an average.Keep posting replies to other's discussions...add friends!!! tons of them. You will get more exposure that way, plus you can help them as well,not to mention meet some really interesting people.
