This is for anyone who applied to blog there or who currently blogs on there... I just applied like 5 hours ago and they were supposed to send an activation code, never got it, went on the website to resend it, but their resend button/option doesn't even work, I already e-mailed them about it. No response yet. So now I'm scared. Did this happen to you when you signed up? Also, how long did it take for them to get back to your application? I'm just a little worried, because I'm very very VERY passionate about writing and I really want to write/blog on Today.com I really do. I really want to get in. I truly feel like this is the blog site for me, there is no other site offering what they are offering. I don't know what else to do.

I signed up a few days ago and it took about five or six hours to get my activation code. But when I signed up there was a message saying that due to high volume that it could take up to a week.

I see, well I have hotmail. Does that make any difference? If so, i'll resubmit my application with gmail i guess? I hope it doesn't cause any confusion with them.

I also have hotmail. Did you check in your junk mail?

I think you should be patient. It took longer than 5hrs when I signed up for the 1st and 2nd blog. It just depends on how busy they are. Sometimes I have to wait days for my posts to be approved - and sometimes they're approved pretty soon after I've written them. It really does depend on how busy they are, I think. Give them a few days and if you hear nothing, then get in touch. take care...

I actually just signed up for today.com a few days ago. I wrote like 2 new posts and I thought that you get 1 dollar per post, but it says on the statistics that it has to be reviewed and it still hasn't been reviewed yet. So I haven't made anything with the site, but hopefully I will soon. When I signed up, I got the activation email and code right away so maybe there is some issue? Check your spam section if you haven't also. Also, if you have a gmail, then try using that to sign up with if you haven't already.

I'm a member of today.com and I didn't have any trouble at all signing up. I got my approval almost instantly. Either there's a temporary glitch or they aren't accepting new applications right now. Make sure that you typed in your correct email address, and look in your junk or spam folder to see if their email is there. My guess is that it's a glitch since they just made some major changes to the website, and that usually screws things up for a while on any site. Try again in a day or two. If nothing happens, see if there's a contact address where you can check and see what the problem is.
