Did you try the site called Shvoong yet? It is a review site that pays quite well if you know what topic and how you should write about. Have you got any experience? I am a Shvoong member since 2006 and am interested if anybody here has got good experience as well like me or not. Sooo? Anybody Shvoongers here? :)

Yes, I also knew Shvoong in 2006 and I joined it since then. When I started to reach minimum payout monthly, they closed my account suddenly. I was a bit surprised about their decision, but anyway, I started a new account. As I like reading and writing, so I use it to write summaries and to translate summaries into different languages. It's an interesting site which really pays.

Shvoong i made the account in it about 6 month ago and had posted just 3-4 as i got to know that earning there is very low and it is very impossible to reaches the min pay amount so wasting time on it i think better to go for blogging and mylotting. I had only place where i usually wrote one is my blog and other is the the mylot. Sometrime i also write to sites like where guest blogging is allowed so i got a link to myblog as well little recognition.

I completely agree with you. Reaching the payout is really difficult - the reason? Shvoong pays so very less, it is only 10% of the earnings. How bad this is. I think it might be only site, that pays so low. I think, it is a review and summery type site and no original content is required there. The payout is $10. That is why I feel the site pays so less. There is no creative thinking and the site expects only a summery. I have been a member there since May 2007 and yet there is no progress in my earnings. Yes, I accept that I am not that active there for all these years. But the concept and the percentage is gives to writers itself puts me off. I don't know what to do with the articles there. I have around 80 summaries written there.

Hi rajeev :) I added you as a friend. just go and check out my most popular reviews on Shvoong. my username is Osoul. They are mainly in Hungarian, but you can see how many visits they have.. :) Just check out my english language reviews as well. They are about "how to make money on Shvoong" :) Feel free to ask anything here on MyLot in private message as well if interested.. :) I hope we'll talk soon :) ps.: And believe me.. :) you wrote above you have got 150-200 visits per review. I do not know how long you have been a member on Shvoong. If you have 150 visitors IN a month you got about 0.15-0.25$ But if you got 4-5 visitors for a given review/month you get nothning.. You need to reach minimum 8-15 visits for a review/month for getting paid.. At the moment I got about 25 000- 30 000 visits altogether on Shvoong in a month. It is about 25-30$ hope that helps.. :) Ask in private if you need more info :)

There are some sites out there that are not too harsh on the grammar as long as you are writing good thoughts and content. Why don't you try such writing sites? But I feel mylot is liberal on the grammar issue. That is why people like this site a lot. It gives you the opportunity to express yourself, write, earn and improve yourself as well.

@zhawee: I think grammar is a thing that could be better and better if we are trying hard.. :) These kind of review sites are great because we can get immediately feedback. And the old rule is valid here as well: the more we practice the better we can write! :( just keep it on, I am sure you will be successful! :)

That sounds very interesting. Writing has been my hobby since my college years, and is still is, writing articles, short stories, reviews, commentaries, and so on. The site you mantioned is new to me. I certainly will take a look at it, and probably join too. Thank you.

Honestly speaking, I have no right to advice, but if you ask me, I would never recommend this site to anyone. You can try somewhere else but it is difficult to earn from Shvoong. It shares only 10% of the revenue. I think, I have wasted a lot of time and articles there. I have 80 summaries there. I could have better used them at a different site.

hello losouler, I am a shvoonger too but I only have 3 articles. To date, my earnings is .12$. I read some of your articles and was impress on how you promote your article. I learned a lot from it. Does this mean to say, I will not earn that much if I will not promote my summaries?

i guess that your effort is less... how come you can get a bigger payment if you never work hard??
