Hi curiousman, yes I make money writing articles. I can be paid from between $3 and $8 depending on the type and length of the page I create. I get paid about $200 on average per month and this is part time, maybe 3 or 4 hours a day.

Hi Ritz, nice to hear from you. I didn't know you were still hanging out here :) What do you do online these days beside writing articles? I have been doing internet marketing for nine months now. Business is growing. :)

Hi curiousman, I was notified that you had started a thread, so I thought I should come and say hi. I am doing a bit of both, the article writing provides money to buy domain names and pay the monthly fees for all the other stuff needed to run an online business. Honestly Im not making much with internet marketing, but I keep trying. LOL

I have only been paid decent money for articles when I submitted them to the editor of offline magazines. Online I do have work in sites like Helium and Associated Contents but I am only paid for page views which is not much at all. If there is a way to make good earnings from writing online I would love to hear about it!

Depending on how much time I put into it, never more than 20 hours a week, I can make $150 to $320 a month. It's not a lot and I know people who are making more. I write for AC and Helium. That is my average on AC. As far as Helium, I just relist the articles from AC and I make about $50 a month for upfronts and pageviews.

Your lucky since you are from the U.S. The international members here don't get upfront payments and it is a real shame. Same for helium, it is pretty hard to start off with. I'd go for triond with their low pay out first and see how that goes. Also, I don't like Bukisa, they banned my account and I sent an e-mail to them and never got a reply.

I haven't tried Bukisa yet. I stay with AC and Helium since I make the most money off of AC. I repost my articles to Helium since that is allowed. If there are other websites like that I may try to add more, but right now it is not possible.

I've been writing articles online for a few years now. I write mainly for AC and Suite101 and really like them both, but have been finding that Suite tends to pay a bit more. I write about all kinds of things, including health/fitness and travel, and only do it as a hobby in addition to my full time job. If I was able to do it full time, however, I would ideally like to write 40-50 hours per week.

I just started days ago. I'm still a newbie in writing articles online. But I write from a lot of time. I think writing online articles is one of the genuine ways to earn money from internet. Bukisa is good site for newbies, as a friend here told me. Usually, you can write on whatever theme you like. You should find what's your best. How many hours you works per day, you asked. Well, it depends on your writing skills. You're paid per content and content views. So it depends on you. And also it's important to submit something interesting because you're per view in most of the cases. Your articles should be useful and interesting.

I remember i did some articles for amazonturk and microworkers i think and earned arround 1$ that i never used. I wrote something about pets. But i like mylot more than those sites because here you can find something interesting and it's easy to comment on even if you earn a little less at least on beginning.
