Just read a post from the owners about them not being able to carry on as they are not earning much. I had a nice time there and earned too. I wish them well.

I didn't earn much there, did have one post that went viral, surprised the heck out of me. Didn't even realize what had happened until one of the owners messaged me and I realized it was getting a LOT of views... I had joined looking for another 'myLot' but there's no place like home.

I am sad to announce - the final nail has been set. This article was posted on Persona Paper - where we you can earn value for your content.

I earned a total of 60 dollars there but lately there was not much traffic. The owners are honest and above board.

Its not like mylot at all because they required perfect English even from members who are not native English speakers.

@mammots I liked it just for that. It is good to read good English and those who are not English speakers sometimes write better.

@allknowing Yes so true. All contents posted there are all exceptionally good and are so enjoyable to read but unfortunately did not generate enough revenue to keep the site afloat.

I learned of this late this afternoon and am saddened by the news, though I can understand why it must be so.

@allknowing I will, though I do have to take time to work on my new book project. It is coming along nicely.

@DWDavis Good for you. Do what you think needs priority. Are you anywhere near reaching payout there?

That is unfortunate. I did like it there but it always just caused problems with my computer.

@allknowing yes that happened to me and then it froze my computer right up a few times. I tried from the library and the same thing happened there.

@paigea There were too many issues that affected the earnings for the site as well. I feel sorry for them as they were so sincere, honest and over board.

@allknowing That is too bad. I did always hope I would get to spend enough time there to reach one payment!

@allknowing -- the announcement. That was one place where it was tough to cheat. You had to write an article to be accepted. Good writing there.

Oh that's sad. I was on there for a short time but never earned much because how slow the activity was. I hate hearing of so many sites closing. =(

This is very sad news about persona paper. I tried to log in to my account and surprisingly i was still able to. The "I am sad to announce --- The final nail has been set" content posted by elitecodex was long, straight to the point but heart wrenching to read. Even though i am not an active member there anymore but knowing that all their efforts to keep persona paper a success failed breaks my heart to pieces.

I'm so glad I saw this post because I haven't visited Persona Paper for ages. I was never very active there, so I doubt I've got any content worth rewriting, but I'd better check. It's really sad to see that site go because the interaction was really good, but at least the owners were always honest about the situation, unlike some other failed sites I was a member of.

I've never visited the site but i am not surprised as alot of sites our shutting down lately. I feel bad for those that rely on it though to make money online.

I just learned about this sad news yesterday and I am quite saddened about it. I thought that it could have been a good replacement for Bubblews.

With myLot around which is well established this is where all will flock.

@allknowing Hopefully they won't "pull a Bubblews" and give you no time to copy your best posts.

@TheHorse These are very honest and above board kind. They are a young couple and always shared their issues with us from time to time.

This does not come as any surprise to me. I joined there after the demise of Bubblews, but did not stay very long. The earnings were extremely slow, which soon reduced activity and when I have looked at the site recently there were only 2 or 3 constantly active members.

I earned 60 dollars there Would lose those 3 that I have now earned. I had a nice time there.

That rule was implemented later. It was there for Indians too but they allowed existing members to continue

It's not a good market for sites like PP and MyLot, so hoping that this sad trend won't continue until all the casual/social writing venues are gone. The crew over at PP always seemed to be doing their best - sorry that things didn't work out for them.

myLot has a good grounding. You can read about them in Alexa.

I never joined that site, but had it as a 'back-up plan' in case anything happened to Mylot. Sorry it's gone if you enjoyed it there.

I got to hear about myLot coming back there. I had a nice time there and earned quite a bit too. Sad it is closing down.

You could have had a nice time there as the community was good and you could have earned too but at a slow pace I earned 60 dollars there.
