Zemandi experiment continues

I have been trying out Zemandi. It's a site that pays writers for articles of blog posts, reviews and web content. They require that you sign up by invitation. After you complete your first assignment, they will review it and give you a writer rating. Then you can request more work. I continue to do an assignment from Zemandi every few days. I got notice today of two more that had been accepted. One of them I completed two days ago, so that was a quick review. Because I am lazy, I haven't reached payout of $20 yet. I could easily if I did one assignment per day, though. I don't like every assignment but I am careful to refuse only those that ask for too much work for the money or those I find objectionable in nature. And once I reject one, I feel duty bound to do the next assignment, no matter whether I feel inspired or not. Truthfully , I never feel inspired. It's not the kind of writing that inspires. But that's okay. The pay is not great. But it's not half bad. It's easy going. 8 hour deadlines are hard and also helpful. I can only ignore the assignment for so long before I am forced to write and submit it. Gvie me a week, and I will ignore it for 6 and a half days. Give me 8 hours and I will only ignore it for qa few hours. I should do one today, but I have left it too long and I don't feel like working. Maybe tomorrow. I don't find Zemandi to be a difficult site to work with. I haven't reached payout but I know two people who are paid regularly (they obviously work harder than I do). I think it's a good deal for anyone with decent writing skills.

Another one like that is Article Document and once you get past the beginning and get journalist assignments they pay quite well, more than $20 for many articles. I have been too lazy to do it but she is making serious money.

@Rollo1 I think that is exactly where I am as well. I wanted to earn the money but when push came to shove, I don't need it to live so why stress myself out

@Rollo1 ilike your mind set - however I cannot believe how many paying writing sites there are out there especially when not many people are reading much any more. You go girl

She? (Hello. Have I met you before? I don't recognize you offhand. Nice to meet you.) Who are you referring to in your response to Anja's discussion? Someone I might know?

blogmutt is kind of like that, although you just look for things that need done and pick what you want to submit for yourself, makes it easy to be lazy and never submit though

I am level 7 in Blogmutt but haven't written there for two years. I don't like the pressure of knowing that I could be writing the same thing someone else is and be wasting my time. Zemandi is like Blogmutt, but you are the only one with that assignment.

@Rollo1 my biggest issue is time, I can always rewrite and reuse a post if it's not accepted, so far every one not used I have recycled, it's just time. It takes me a good hour to research and write one, thats an hour at 8 bucks. Now if I didn't work I'd set aside a couple hours a day and belt out a few, but that's a lot of work for that amount of time, and I'd rather make less but have more fun over here, for the most part.

@Rollo1 Now that is even better information than I had hoped to see pop up about Zemandi! (I did that for a while on a site that is now defunct. I could/did compete successfully, but it caused the fun of writing to take a vacation from me while the site was still a going concern. Don't really want that to happen again, either!)

I like having multiple sites, so I can do what feels right for the moment. But I don't enjoy writing copy and content. I doubt anyone does.

@Rollo1 Uhm... it depends on what the subject matter is, for me. Some subjects I am fascinated about and can write reams of information gleaned from personal knowledge, inferred knowledge as well as spot researched information about the subject... But possibly that is not what they are looking for, either?

@DaddyEvil Mainly you are writing blog posts and articles for clients who don't want to write them for themselves. You have no byline, which means you don't have to worry that you are endorsing anything under your name. But sometimes there is a bit of research involved. You might do some reading first, then write about the subject.

@DaddyEvil sounds like a cause to steer clear of them or proceed with caution.

@arthurchappell Yes, sir, I would say so, myself! I am going to pm you one of the links I found. The "discussion" itself runs over 12 pages long and is written by a fairly well-known (on line) author. (Well... various parts of it are, anyway!)

@Inlemay At myLot you do not have to request payment. It will be automatically made if you reach the payout by the last day of the month. Payment is on or about the 15th of the next month, so that would be November. Make sure you have your paypal info entered on your profile.

I think to remember that someone mentioned Zemandi in the past. I wonder if it was Katerine. In how many days you could reach the payout doing one assignment per day?

Zemandi is good for international users and doesn't just demand US writers. They pay via paypal.

How much do they pay per review and do they give you the title and guidelines? I was accepted to write for Scripted but never really started writing anything there.

I haven't done any reviews, I won't request them as assignments because I don't want to write fake reviews of products I haven't used.

I used to write for Textbroker, but it started to feel too much like a job and stopped being fun after a while. It did pay well, though, once I got the hang of it.

It's the sort of thing you can burn out on easily, I think.

I signed up with them, but never bothered doing anything else afterward. Just too busy right now I guess to roam around looking for different ways to make money.

writing can be inspiring sometimes difficult if you don't want to do it

Writing can also be difficult for those who cannot spell, use proper punctuation, use a spell checker, use capital letters when appropriate, know when and where to begin/change to a new paragraph and stay on topic while writing to earn extra cash. Not being able to do those things can/will/has gotten accounts deleted, or so I have heard as well as seen, @softbabe44 . Have you found that to be true as well, ma'am?

I've never heard of any of these sites, so I assume that means I don't need them!

Are you still writing for Zemandi? I do it now and then. I hope to do more while school is out. Do you find it makes any difference whether you check Blog Post, Content, or Review?

I have to be honest, I forgot all about it after getting a couple of assignments I didn't want. I never did make my payout. I should go back and at least work up to that. I don't think the assignments are well-categorized, as I remember it. I think you can get anything no matter what you check off.

@Rollo1 That is what it seemed to me too, that it doesn't make much difference what I check. I have reached pay out several times but not the last month or so. School is ending so I do want to pick up other earning. I can't defend zemandi against all the critisim others have against it. The pay is low, the assignments can be tedious But it works for me. I can pick up an assignment or ignore if for a month.
