Hi all! I have been at this home writing thing for a few months now, and I have found a few sites to write on that pay, but I also like to find new ones that I can write for! For the most part I am a writer of recipes, but I have some other articles I have thrown out there, too. Right now I am writing on Associated Content, eHow, Bukisa and Hellium. They all keep me pretty busy, and I am watching my balances go up on two of them. Associated pays directly for each accepted article, which I love! I've made a few bucks from them. Do you know of any other sites? Are they good at paying out? I would love a referral link, and if you want one from me for any of the above sites, feel free to check out my profile page and blog. The links are all there. Thank you for your responses, and have a great day!

Hi, I love writing too and think it is a great way to make money. I write for all of the same sites as you do, plus triond. I like triond as they payout at 50 cents directly into your paypal without you even having to request it. Unfortunately I dont get upfront payments at AC so my earnings are limited there which is a shame. I do get upfront payments at helium so this is where I spend most of my time. I also am a member of bukisa but have only submitted 1 article so havent earned very much. My plan is to make payout on all of these sites each month and keep adding to my article collection. As for other writing sites there are higher paying ones such as constant content, brighthub, demand studios, and you can also apply for writing jobs at elance. I have applied for a few here and have yet to here back.

I am on triond too and working on increasing my earnings from there. It takes a little while to start earning more I think right now I get about 1 something each month, but I would like a few more. I am also on AC and it takes a little learning to get what they want. There are many differen restrictions on what they want. I try to write in popular content areas like relationships, health (like cancer) and a few other things. If they don't accept upfront payment then I send it in as performance payments and that helps each month. I think bukisa will take some time to earn money the way triond is, so I am working on that as well. I like this site too (mylot) it helps earn a little something each day and i get a little closer to payout. I would love to able to make payout each month, but I only have 1 referral, so I am working on that as well.

where is constant comment? I did a search but only saw a forum and I don't think that's it.

it depends on what kind of mood i am in. I am still new at helium and to tell the truth it feels a little bit intimidating. Bukisa is the easiest to write on. Ehow is also easy but I feel simplified articles and subjects seem to do better there. I really like associate content and I think it might become a favorite. Ehow gets frustrating but sometimes I write to let off steam and when I get fired up I usually go there first. I suggest you apply to demand. you definitely have more experience with "serious" writing than I do. I know they pay well.

I like Associated content and Helium. I am starting to like Ehow. I didn't like it at first, because I wasn't seeing my efforts pay off. It was a bit frustrating at first. I ended up checking it after not going back for awhile and saw a few pennies in my account and realized that it could be worth my effort. So, I started back again. I really like how Associated Content pays immediatly through PayPal. I get frustrated with Helium, because you have to wait for pay and I hate how the stars can go up and down, like crazy. And, if you loose a star at the last minute of the month you will get your upfront pay cut.

I do agree with you. Helium is frustrating. MyLot is definitely better than Helium! Here, with every post, you easily get $0.01 while in Helium, it would take you months to earn a few cents. I might as well spend my time here in MyLot rather than posting my articles in Helium. Some here even say Triond and Associated Content is much better than Helium.

H, ljbinkop! My favorite website is myLot of course. I don't know if I may have the time to write at another site.. But, I will try to make the time, especially during the summer! There are many sites, but I am unsure of the exact names of them.

Mylot is not exactly a writing site. At least at mylot, there is no word limit of minimum 400 words. Plus we do not need to think of writing to a title (as in Helium) or generate idea for an article. Most of the times I respond to discussion rather than initiating new discussion thread. Much easier this way, use less brain power.

I also love to write but i'm quite alien to these sites you have mentioned. I guess the only one i am affiliated with is bukisa. I actually write independently for a blogger but eventually stopped to concentrate on my online freelance works. But if you can send me the link, i'll check on those and write on my free time.

I didn't realize that you could write recipes on some of those sites. I also write several of my own and had thought that there must be a site where I could some writing and share them with others for some kind of pay. I have done a few articles on Helium but never found that I could make enough to get paid. I have also looked into the others that you mentioned except for Bukisa and I may check it next. Do you earn all your income by these sites? I am looking into getting into these same sites and being able to stay home and earn money.

I write for Associated Content as well. I make good money there. I have written a few things for Helium, but nothing since they have their upfront pay. I hope you find some more writing sites. Hugs MaryLynn321

Hello, I am being active on myLot and write articles on Triond only. Can you show me how much you can earn from those sites? Just some brief sum up is okay. Thank you.

I have seen few websites to write. May be others are making money, fame in many of them. But there are two genuine sites that I like are Mylot and Ciao only. they are the greatest.

I write primarily for Helium and Associated Content. Another site that I like a lot, which is more of a social networking site, but has a lot of activity with food and recipes (so you might like it) is Gather.com. You post articles, comment on other people's articles, post photos and videos too. You are paid in points, which you can then cash out via PayPal or gift card. Awhile back, I also tried Epinions, which I still make residual income from without adding any extra reviews. I have tried not to spread myself too thin and find it's better to concentrate on a few sites and then move on to bigger challenges once I've got those mastered. Good luck with your writing.
