Hello There are few good sites out there. But I think Expertcolumn is the best one to start. They are not that strict in compare of other sites. Plus they are also paying good on the basis of view in compare of other sites. So to start with it is the best one.

lol.. Congrats. No second payment for me, so not going for third either. But after hearing this from you, I guess I will try it out. But will not give more efforts though.

There are several writing sites which you could submit articles with. Personally, I would recommend Expertscolumn. The site pays per view while other pay through revenue sharing. Likewise, EC has a greater chance to appear in search engines so the greater chances that our articles can be found. However, they have some minor changes in the site recently. You will have to submit an article before you will be able to post articles. But I'm sure you can do it. Good luck!

When I started, there was no such rule. As I've said, that is a new rule which was implemented recently. But I also have some articles which were rejected by the sites because of violation of some of the rules. But it's fine with me. I can still write other articles. If you want to join the site, you can refer to the guidelines to be sure on what to write about.

Bubblews.com. There is good money to be made there and you don't have to have a lot of experience writing on there, its more of a community then anything else.

I also meant to say if you do join there be sure to go to the bank page and read the rules very carefully if you break any of those they will not pay you.

Hello Dipak, There are plenty of sites available on net which are good to write articles. I would suggest Expert column for you to start with. Also you can write articles on Boddunan its an Indian site. Triond is also a good option. Then there are zillions of site which pay for writing articles.

Yes Boddunan is one of the good site. Here you will not get money on the basis of the views but you will get the whole amount for the article during approval of it. And they pays in Indian currency as well.

I use Odesk. You can view through the ratings and others' feedback about the employers in Odesk. If you see a 5-star rating, it means that that employer is good. You can also communicate with them with regard to what type of writing they want from you. Well first you have to create an Odesk account and then you should have a paypal so you can transfer your earnings from that site. I'm not sure if they use other payment methods. Another thing that I like about Odesk is that you can filter the type of you job you want to take. Writing, Editing, Spinning (re-writing), transcribing, data entry and so on..

well i opened an account yesterday and it seems that filling the profile itself is a big challenge and after going through the others views about the sites i think it is not an easy task to get a task there..what do you think?

I agree with you, creating Odesk account is tedious. But that is the only hard part. Once you have an account (even if it is just 80% complete), you can get several jobs. In a matter of 2 - 3 days at least one client is going to respond to you. But you have to be cautious. Make sure to check the star rating and others' comments for that client. You have to be sure you're working for a legit person/company.

I started with Hub Pages and I am still writing for them! They keep improving things and the people who write for them are very helpful! Just write about the topic of your choice and you should be OK. Try to include quality pictures if you can and a video is you are able to find one!

I am actually using Wikinut.. Well, as for me, that site is really good because you can post anything you want.. I mean your own writing or your writing from your other sites ( you need to own that article). They are not that strict but the pay is lower than other writing sites. I'm not sure how they do pay but it's in Great Britain Pounds. Anyway, the pay is slowly but surely. Just try it.. :)
