Once again my content has failed to go, here is the story: I started this whole thing with Bukisa over a year ago (before it turned to soley ad sense revenue). With Bukisa I managed to earn .70 for just 1 article! Then things went to adsense only :( I now have 4 articles with just over 160 views in total. Should I still keep writing for Bukisa? So far the only adsense revenue I have earned from Bulisa is just .23 cents! Worth it? Or dump it? Helium :( Another really disappointing site, I have around 7 articles. But not a single cent in earnings! I swear I was appalled by this, I started out with a 100% rating and now it has gone down to 70 ish % :( Any tips? Maybe I am doing something wrong? Triond is the only site I have not really written for. Should I give it a go? Someone told me I should because I can easily build up a big article base and slowly keep earning residual income from here.

I love triond I would recommend it I have only 3-5 articles and 5-9 pictures with about 300 views all together and I have $0.34 if I worked harder I could make way more! And the cashout min is $0.50 I think you can do so much better with triond!!!!

Really? Wow thats great. I have a few articles and photos which I can also transfer to Triond (moving Bukisa, and Helium articles as we speak). Though the pictures option seems a bit pidly atm, but maybe using my el cheapo camera I shall build up a fan base then upgrade cameras :D This was the reply I really wanted! THANK YOU! I shall try much harder to see if Triond works for me!

You were right man! With the first picture i uploaded I got 8 views and now my earnings are up to .01! Thats prograss! But i am not entirely sure how much of the views are from triond and how mch is from my facebook link :/ cause I think for it to be self sustaining it needs to generate its own views as opposed to fb! But who am i to complain, i shall see what happens in the next few days!

maybe you should start looking for a real job if you want to get money so much :)

LOL, I am actually not desperate for money @.@ I am just looking for a bit of an investment. My friend a while ago did 500 articles during his break and earns around 70 a month :) I mean that may be piddly but to a student that could be really good extra savings for a little time. Besides I would so die to have a job if I were not constrained by upcoming exams :)

With Helium, in order to earn revenue from the articles that you've written, you have to rank other people's articles and maintain at least one rating star. If you aren't doing that, then you will not be earning any residual earnings. I didn't realize that at first, but now that I do, I try to rate at least 10 other articles a day. The reason that I do that much rating is because you get a $3.00 bonus every month if you have five rating stars. I've been writing there for just over a year and I now have over 200 articles on the site. In total I've earned almost $300 between upfront earnings, ratings bonuses, contests and residual.
