Out of all the writing sites that everyone has found online. Please tell me which ones that you all find are really good. Which ones do you think are very easy to make money from?

I love Associated Content. They always pay and pay ontime. I also like Helium, even though I've only published one article with them. I hope to do more work for them in the coming year. In my opinion, these are the top two online content writing sites. If you need any more input, just ask, I'd be glad to help.

I am signed up with Associated Content already, and I have been paid for my first article. I am not the best writer by any means, but I am taking a look at this to see if it is something that I really might enjoy to make some extra money on the side. I have a few other articles that I wrote, but they haven't accepted/rejected the article yet. I am sure I will here back in the next few days on them. (They respondes with in a week and paid the same day that I accepted their offer. I was quite pleased to say the least.)

If you'd like to share page views, I'd be glad to put you as a favorite, that way I can view and rate what you write when it is published. PM me your AC homepage link, and I'll do the same. It really helps to get those extra page views every month.

I have to agree that eHow is marvelous. As I learn more about tags and networking I make more and more. I was recently surprised by a 160,000 view hit on one of my articles and got a colossal check of $462.55 for the month. Not bad for one article!

I am not really sure eHow really works yet (I think I have signed up for them already, but I haven't done anything their site)... How long has your article been online for in order for you to make so much money? (Was it only a month, and then you recieved the money??) Thanks for the info..

I think you have to find the writing site that suits your own style of writing and the topics you like to write about. Triond works well if you write a lot of articles on popular topics. If you like to write 'How To...' guides, and you live in the USA, you may do well at EHow. If you enjoy blogging you can write at today.com or getpaidfrom.us Personally I do best at Helium, where at present I earn around 50 cents each day in revenue share. I make good money each month from selling articles in the marketplace, and I now receive upfront payments for each new article I write. If I'm lucky I can also win money in the free writing contests. It takes a lot of time and effort at Helium. It is not the right site to join if you think it's easy to make money for writing. I like it because it is competitive and challenging. It is really good for learning, for developing new skills, and for getting into freelance writing. If you want to make money, at any writing site, you need a certain amount of dedication and commitment. You will need to network and promote your work. You need to write regularly and to submit a lot of articles or reviews. You will earn very little from occasional writing.

By far the best I have found is Ehow.com I receive residual income monthly from all my articles. Second would be helium.

Yes, helium would be my choice too. I have earned good money with them and I am still earning. The offers are limitless. It all depends upon you how much you want to earn. The more dedicated you are the more earnings you'll have. Good luck and cheers.

I have to agree with Mike who stated that the best way to make money from writing online is to promote yourself. Blog, answer calls for submissions that are on a topic you can write about. Check sites like elance and guru for job postings that match up with your experience and bid on them. Why make pennies when the real dollars come from promoting yourself.
