I too use Helium...there is a lot of different things to know about Helium in order to earn good money....I am new to it but i think it is possible to earn there. This will be my first month, and should be reaching payout at least...which is 25 dollars. A lot of other people are saying good things about associated content....i have submitted a few articles, but I live in canada and they do not give upfront payment to us. I am not sure where they do, and do not offerupfront payments. Anyways so I have earned a little of page views, but not alot at all, and i havent submitted anything since i relized i couldnt get upfront payments! There is also another one Triond...i dont know alot about that site, or if you can earn upfront payments. I think i have 1 article there, and have earned 1cent in a month. So i havent been bothering with it. Also there is Bukisa...i have added a few things here....I dont know much about it, however i have earned 12 cents in page views...I am thinking about maybe looking into this one more. Hope some of this helps....Good Luck!!!!

Thanks for your respons. I just heard of Triond from reading other discussion on mylot. Not sure of anything, or how they work. Your really making payout on helium with in one month. Ive been a member for a while now, and only have $1.50 in my account. So, I need to write more I believe. How many articles do you write on Helium a week?

It's more about keeping your writing stars up...I have 24 articles now. Another thing with Helium is you dont see the earning until the end of the month. Actully on the first...i wrote a bit about the payment scheme in the other repsone in this discussion..the first one I believe...But yes i will make about 20 for submitting 20 articles...becuase i have 2 writing stars so i get 1.00 per article, plus about 9 of them were empty titles so I get 9.00 for that. Plus I have made over 1.00 in page views, and most of my artilces didnt go on the website until about a week ago. I wont see any of the earning other then the page views until the 1st, but i have 8.00 in my account from the last week of last month...i joined near the end of last month. I hope this helps

One thing that I recently learned here on MyLot is that you can post your Helium articles to Associated Content for per view income. You own the rights to any Helium articles you have already written. Associated Content allows you to list already published material if you own the rights. This way, you get paid twice for your articles because, in most cases, it's two different audiences at these two different sites. You might also try Gather.com. They let you accumulate points, which you can then turn into either PayPal cash payments or gift cards. Good luck with your writing. What do you like to write about over on Helium?

I write about most anything. But, mainly real life experiences. I wrote about how my life changed when my wife and I split. I do alot of research online and have wrote about mortgages, weight loss and most recently about how I feel about public signs of affection. I'll give those sites a shot. I believe that I have an account on Associated Content, but not Gather.com. Thanks again for the info. Do you write on Helium?

I've been concentrating on writing on Helium lately. I am trying to work my way up to 300 articles. So far I have written 170...I can hardly believe it. But I find writing for Helium easier than some sites because they give you the topics. I write a lot of articles on art history, travel, work, and investing.
