Pretty much says it all. I would like to know, what article writing sites you use, what makes them special for you, What significant changes you have seen in your sites in the last few years, and what advice you would give to someone just starting out in article writing. Also, I would like to know the pros of using a paid to write site such as Buksia? Vs, using a site like Ezine articles. And vice versa. Thank you for your time, I appreciate you. CJScott.

I see, and what Article sites do you use to develop the business? Is your business a Network Marketing Business? And what about cosmetics, has to do with Article writing, was your response just a plug for your business? I am a boy, I don't use cosmetics, and I really like my soap already...but if you are in MLM, I would love to help you become more successful. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

I like Demand Studios. They are very picky for accepting writers (you must submit a resume and writing sample) and assignments (strict format guidelines and deadlines) and I admit they can be frustrating, but they pay $15 for every article submitted. About an hour a day nets me $450/month. I also write for Helium and Factoidz. Factoidz hasn't earned me too much, around $5-8/month, because I am not good at SEO, but Helium just seems to earn me more and more each month ($175 last month) for quick easy 400 word articles, plus upfront payments for eligible articles.

Thank you so very much dear. What significant changes have you seen in each of these sites in recent years, and what advice would give to someone just starting out in online article writing? Sincerely and With Appreciation.

I have only been writing to my sites in a dedicated fashion for just about 4 months, so I have not been around long enough to see any real changes. I think my best advice would be to do a lot of research (like you're doing here!) before picking a site, and then stick with it. It usually takes awhile to build up a big enough stock of articles to make decent money, but in the end you will be happy you did it (as long as you did your research and picked a good site.)

I like Triond and Associated Content best. If you're just starting up in article writing, I would say use Triond first and then move up to Bukisa and once you feel confident, go to Associated Content. The thing I like about Triond is that they pay you by article view and the cents roll in pretty quickly. The thing I like about Associated Content is that if they like your article they will give you an upfront payment. I love that!

Well, I haven't actually been apart of them for years, so I'm not sure! Haha. I only joined Associated Content a little over a month ago, Triond three weeks ago and Bukisa two weeks ago. But from the limited amount that I've seen, I love them!

I like factoidz and bukisa. I think I am given a good break by them, slowly though. I like the fact that I am earning from the articles I post there. These two sites have their respective good points. I just hope they stay for a long time.

Bukisa has a higher rate, giving you $3.22 per 1000 views. It accepts almost anything you submit. Factoidz will pay you an additional $ reward everytime you submit an article with them. That is on top of your earnings for page views.

Well, I've only started writing online within about the past month and the site that I finally decided on was helium because of the fact that you can get both paid upfront for writing for them and also because of the fact that they have the residual as well. I've yet to make my first payout with them, but I'm making my way there slowly but surely. I'm sure that I will be able to fully endorse the site once I've earned my first payout.

I have been writing articles, short stories, reviews, and so on, on a number of writing sites. They all work quite well. The site I like very much is "Review Stream". One can write brief reviews on a variety of topics, things one comes across in the day-to-day activities, shopping, movies, restaurants, travel, hotels, and so on. One has many options to write reviews.

My favorite writing site is Helium and I like it because my articles will always get me a little bit of extra money.

Hello CJscott. I like Helium - it's the only site I write for these days. There's lots of choice of article titles, and you can even suggest your own titles. The payment is good for the best writers, and it's a very friendly, supportive site. You never feel alone on Helium - there's always someone to turn to for advice and encouragement. The system is a bit complicated to get used to, but if you take time to read the help pages and discover how Helium works, it's well worth the time and trouble.
