I've been writing for a few content mills just to get back into writing. I've been using Associated Content and Textbroker. What sites have you guys used? How do they compare?

I write for AC, Helium and Reviewstream. I do not really like Helium as far as the payouts go, but I do enjoy seing the different topics that they throw out for us to write about - it helps fuel my writing muse. As for AC and Reviewstream - I really enjoy these sites. I find that if you have a continuous flow of articles going into AC then you can get paid just about every day and the earnings add up pretty quickly. Reviewstream has started paying $2.50 for each review as long as the owners of the site feel that the review is detailed and informative. I have had very few rejections and have written many, many reviews. I accept the bulk payment of 50 cents when I write about certain topics such as movies I have liked, episodes of television shows - that sort of thing. It takes me a few minutes at the most to write a review on these things so 50 cents is acceptable. I have been able to reach the $50.00 payout within 2 days and Reviewstream is great about paying you pretty fast. Every time I have asked for a payout, the money has been put into my paypal within a few hours of asking. I know I am jinxing myself by praising them so much, but I really do enjoy Reviewstream. I have only had one problem with them. When I first started writing reviews there, I did not keep track of what I had reviewed and where. I submitted a review that I found on my computer that I had typed earlier, thinking I had never submitted this review anywhere. However, Reviewstream found it on freelancer.com where I had submitted it to show that I could write - not to be posted anywhere. They immediately sent me a message saying I had cheated and could no longer write for them as my account was banned. When I sent them an email and explained what had happened, they told me that I could still write for them. Since then, I have made sure to keep track of what I have written and submitted. I only do reviews at Reviewstream so thankfully, I have not had the same problem.

Wow! Thanks for the info! I have heard of many of the writing sites other people have mentioned but have never tried Reviewstream. I am going to head over there now!

Is it true that only US citizens are eligible for payments? If so what are the other sites that offer opportunities for international writers ?

You don't have to write the same things. There are options to write freely or on topics they choose. lang-8 looks kind of interesting. How does it work exactly?

hi savannarose, I am writing on Bukisa and Triond. I am a beginner on those sites so I cannot compare much of the two. Well, I just noticed that I earn faster in Triond than in Bukisa. Maybe, it is because some of my friends cannot visit Bukisa. I have many Chinese friends and they told me that they cannot visit it, so I am wondering if that site is being banned on their country like Facebook. I am also slow in writing because I cannot write same article for Bukisa and Triond. I have to pass unique content on both sites.

I use AC, Suite101, Textbroker and Helium and I like AC and Suite101 by far the most out of all of them. They are the most credible and they have the best payouts and long term benefits. You just can't beat page view earnings!

I write online. I write for Associated Content, Triond and another site which is the best among these. It has an awesome referral program, and their rates are much better than AC too. In fact, you will find lots of AC people on the third site I am talking about too. And no, I am not talking about ehow. If you are interested, just drop me a message. I will send you the link in a PM :)

I have been writing for Associated Content for about a year now. I tried writing for Helium too, but never seemed to make any money from the writing there. I make a decent amount of money on AC and I enjoy the money I make. I also enjoy the writing that I do there and so I will continue there for now.

There is a formula of sorts for earning from helium but once you pass the threshold it's quite easy to continue to earn.

I like helium. I always get the same amount in upfront pay and there are the empty title bonuses. What I earn depends on what I contribute and I've sold articles in the marketplace. Of course all these passive income sites are a little too passive to earn any real money without a ridiculously large cache of articles, but it is something to do to get back into writing as you said.
