I have been writing online for about eight years now. I have written for article mills and pay per post sites. I would say hubpages was my best before Google hit all article mills with its pandas and penguins. As the earnings dwindled I started to write for my own personal blog and website. I started to write for Bubblews in its hay days and made some money there. But things have changed and it doesn't seem like I am going to earn much online writing on Bubbblews. I made some money on Postloop which is now a ghost of its former self now. I am looking for sites that will be worth spending time on. I signed up with TSU but the posts there looks so crappy to me.That's what brings me back to Mylot. Ironically this was the first site I started writing for, many years ago. Which is your favorite pay to write site as of now? Have you tried other online earning ventures?

Well, I signed up for Bubblews as you know almost 3 months ago, and then a couple months ago, someone posted there about this place, so I signed up for it. Seems like both has it's pros and cons to them. However, I honestly don't think I found my niche in either of them yet. Will give it some time and see. Don't feel like venturing into any others.

I loved it on postloop while there was some work. You could cash out of $five and it was easy to make if you could use your head and write decent comments. But then that well too has dried up. I need to check one more place before I give up on writing online.

@sofssu The lower pay out is definitely a pro. I makes you want to try and achieve it cause it seems so much more reachable. Where at $50.00, I find it highly unlikely. If you enjoy writing, then I think you should continue.

@TexanTornado lower payouts are motivating,and easy to reach. I have never deleted my accounts anywhere.I plan to remain active but not spend too much time on at Bubbllews. My last post says it all.

I tries at my hand at several writing sites such as Triond, Expertscolumn and Bubblews, which was of course the most rewarding one for a while, but after its downfall it wa very hard to find a site that was worth writing for. Eventually I settled to PersonaPaper, which is the only site I use to post my articles at the moment.

I am yet to check out personapaper, triond was not my kid of community, I never really participated in any discussions there.. That crowd was rough to say the least. I have been on infobarrel, seekyt etc.. but there was every little you could make from these sites. and bubblews seems to be dying out now after being revived.

@sofssu Seekyt just changed formats and ownership and says they will be paying more.

My experiences are similar to @Dawwriter. I have tried just about every one out there and even a couple she didn't mention. I wish I could make good money at Bubblews still. I used to post on myLot before they made the change to non-paying. I am back to see how it goes here.

When did you join? I just signed up last night but didn't come on to explore until today. The other site not paying me did me in. I hope that I like it here.

@Rollo1 I wish too.. I just hope they realize their folly and make things better.. but I doubt it.. they seem to be struggling and cash strapped at the moment.

I like bubblews and remembered when they paid really good. I am still on there because I enjoy the site. Money helps but it is not everything.

What is your user name on Bubblews if you don't mind sharing? I love writing; but It doesn't work to spend so much time on a site and never get paid. My opinion of course.

No the money isn't everything but when the team cannot even respond to your emails that is what made me leave. I have more respect for myself then that.

@Juliaacv Absolutely.. they need to treat us like adults.. we aren't sending mails everyday LOL . Moreover it is a business.. we are working there if we want to acknowledge it or not.

I have written for a lot of sites. My journey started with Helium.com, then Bubblews, CGP Gallery, Dailytwocents etc. I also tried PAA, Persona paper, chatabout and now Mylot. Helium was great but more of a learning experience for me. Bubblews was great while it lasted but now very little money is made for a lot of time and effort.

So true, I have tried helium,dailytwoents and the others I mentioned.. But I guess the days of earning with reasonable effort is a thing of the past. Hopefully Bubblews will review the way it functions. Yeah it is true it was great while it lasted.

I used to be a member of bubblews but I gave up writing there because they ceased paying me and they came up with all those lame excuses. I had an attempt to write for seraphicinsights. I'm waiting for a 20 dollars payment and I will see how things go there. now I came back to mylot and I can say I'm having fun being here

@swissheart True, I gave up on a both the sites B and S I don't see anything coming. At least here people are paid for having fun.

Yes,they have to do it if they are to exist on the net.Return of mylot may prompt them to do something or die.

@else34 Lets hope so.. But there seems to be nothing online that works at the moment.. I hate surveys as such.

I used to write for Knoji, a consumer knowledge site. They used to pay quite well for product reviews and product comparison reports. I earned a lot from that site. Now they only accept a few writers and I don't write there anymore.

@sofssu I never wrote for Hubpages. When I used to write for Knoji I wasn't writing for any other website so I spent most of my time there.

@cahaya1983 I checked out knoji recently .. it seems to have changed a lot. I didn't feel like getting back in there. I am just wondering how this old thread suddenly took on new life. I am not complaining though.

Like yourself, I wrote on Bubblews, until yesterday in fact. But with a redemption that was not paid from this past May, and no communication from the team, I have decided to leave it all behind me. A mutual friend suggested I try this site and here I am! I also do surveys and make a little on them, I have been doing this for years and although they do not pay much for the time investment, they DO pay! I am looking forward to being able to get accustomed to the site here and make some nice money!

@Juliaacv Have you written to the support team? If you have and they haven't responded then I guess things are not really good and its not worth writing there anymore. No wonder they delete posts about redemptions. I haven't written for a couple of days now. I don't plan to write anything serious there.. I have put in a lot of effort and they owe me over $250 from the last time around.

@sofssu I redeemed on May 14th for $56 and the screen told me to expect up to 60 days for processing, so a month ago I opened a ticket as it was 60 days. After a couple of emails from Val he told me that he had my redemption on file. I emailed a few times after that but never received a reply as to when they'd pay. This week the moderator put up a post so I put my 2 cents in about this issue. She sent it off to the team and they sent me an email that they'd get back to me as soon as possible. Hmmmm, are they broke or what because I haven't heard from them as of yet.

@Juliaacv Looks like they really are... first of its going to takes years to reach payout at the rate we earn and we have to wait for more than three months to hear from them.. I have been reading online that they are broke.. but I am not sure. They better do something about this issues or they are sure to be on the top of the lists of scam sites.. I really wished they had straightened out their problems.

I like Bubblews still even if it has changed its rate . However , it seems a ghost town again . I am glad Mylot is back into paying . These are the two sites i like .

You write to be read.. I do not see the point in writing where teher is hardly any sign of life. I like bubblews too.. that is why I returned. But I hate to say that ghost towns are for ghosts.

A year ago I would have said that Bubblews was my favourite, but I don't really have a favourite right now as most of the sites I've tried lately have failed. I use Postloop when I feel in the mood, but I'm a bit lazy with that one. I hope that MyLot will prove to be my favourite, but it's too soon to tell.

My choicest site was Bubblews about a year back,but now the traffic there is so low.That's why I am no longer interested in it.I haven't left it,but am not very active there.
@sofssu (18756)

Well I guess traffic has tanked in Bubblews. .. and most of us are watching it from the side lines.. I hope they do something to rev up earnings and bring people back.

I've been on T S U & bubblews & now here & some other sites that left us in the wind & I find out of ALL of them this one to be the one I like best to be on. I'd LIKE to find other GOOD sites as this to write on but I think that I'm most happy right here for the time being.
