Right now I really don't know if theirs a site that I can earn money simply by just selling poems, short stories, articles etc. I'm not really a writer but I love to share my views. And I want to find a site that I can sell my poems, short stories and related staffs.

The greeting card industry is always looking for poem submissions. You can try Blue Mountain Arts for poems. As far as your short stories, you really have to start by doing some research into your particular genre for magazines and such that will purchase your articles. It is infinitely harder to sell fiction pieces than it is to sell your normal run of the mill articles.

Thanks for the tips. I will try to search the blue mountain arts for poems. And the short stories that I'm saying is like a two to three pages short stories or children story books. That what I want to create and publish. Right now I'm not really thinking of earning but if my poems is publish then I'm sure I earn right?

There are a lot of websites that will accept poetry and short stories, but few or none that will pay for them. On a site like Gather, you can post your poetry and stories, and they will get the same points that any other writing on that site will get you. Points add up to a gift card, but that's probably about as much as you can expect. If you want to write online and actually get paid for it, you need to write articles. Bukisa, Triond, Associated Content are just a few of the sites that pay, but for page views. Associated Content pays upfront if you live in the US and if they think your article is worth it. They also pay for page views, but no longer allow that for anyone outside the US.

Thanks. I tried bukisa but it seems bukisa is not for me. I never earn at bukisa. At mylot I earn 10 dollars more or less a month. But in bukisa I don't, triond and associated content I don't try yet. It seems I have little choice in online writing. right now that all that I can think that I can earn.
