I am so happy because I got accepted to be a writer for Factoidz. However many members here on mylot have said that this site isnt that great. What are your opinions on this site?

Hmmm ... Here's an excerpt from a blog post on this subject: [i]"My copyright is being violated at this time by the Factoidz dot com website by changing my user name to a generic user name. Not paying me what they were worth and by the Factoidz website violating its original TOS, which was stolen from another website." [/i] Full post here: http://seekyt.com/website-review-factoidz-the-experience-of-one-freelance-writer/ Elsewhere, it looks like Factoidz isn't just a scam site; it also breaks every copyright law in the book. Sorry.

I would never write for a site that does that. Thank you for letting me know.

If this is the case with factoidz, I think there's no way I will be writing there. I work hard for my content so I must get paid for it. Thank you for sharing this insights, this will serve a good warning to all myLot members looking for a site to write.

I think another option will be to write to magazines and newspapers. also writing short stories. But ideas are not coming quickly. have a nice day.

I too write for factoidz, with two published articles as of now. There have been mixed opinions on this site but the reason I joined was that there's no minimum payout. In this case, it is better to forget what everyone else says and rely on your own potential. You could check out my Factoidz profile here: http://factoidz.com/profile/Pooja_Says/ All the best.

I also feel elated with the same feelings as yours but it changes rapidly. imagine, how could a wannabe writer earn? when every time, she write or submit content is often return or rejected even after checking with grammar corrector. You could be better diverting your interest in other content site, other than in factoidz. You could read about other writer experience on the site by just typing in search engine, factoidz-scam.

I have been paid every month by Factoidz. For some, they are having not-so-good opinion because Factoidz is a strict website, wherein they screen articles posted. You are not encouraged to post opinion-based, poorly done articles or else those will not be accepted. I like the fact that it does not only pay per view. It also pays an upfront reward everytime you write your articles. I got promoted the other day, after submitting 20 articles with them. I am confident I will stay long with them.

I never heard of this website. Sounds like a crappy one.
