I am starting to get a complex. Don't fear I think mylot is safe from me. LOL I just joined a writing site. It was a place to post articles, stories, and even poems. It will be closing it's doors as of April 16th. I was only there for a couple of weeks. Will there ever be another writing site? *sigh

I am sure we won't have any problem here. This is a social site. The site I am talking about wasn't like an interaction site. It was for "journalism".

@davidalicea100 It's like a blog site. I have never used it. Is it more like this where you just correspond back an forth? LOL

@fishtiger58 Thanks fishtiger. I forgot about textbroker. I am a member there. I don't remember iwriter.com. I am glad to see you back today. I was having trouble seeing yesterday. I think allergies again. I noticed you weren't around though. I was thinking about pm'ing you, but I couldn't remember if you were going out this weekend or something. LOL

What site is it? Is it a blog site or a writer's site. I've been part of a couple and one I was part of for a couple years does what you're talking about. I might just need to check it out to see if it's still alive and kicking because that one is a great site for writer's and wanna be authors. I just checked out the site and it's safe. Going strong. So which site bit the dust?

@mommaj I haven't heard of that one. Was it also a pay site?

@just4him Yes. It would have paid well if there were enough people there to make a difference. LOL It was paying by comments and page views. I was looking forward to seeing how much I could make. LOL

It's sad to hear that. It seems like many paying sites are not doing well, and many have closed down too. Are there too many cheaters around, or the websites just can't sustain themselves? I am glad mylot is still around after so many years!

I am glad they are able to support the community as well. I guess some sites just take too much money to run. The people hosting them and administering them want something for their troubles I am sure. My guess is this particular site did not have enough members and enough readers for views.

@mommaj I think having a good plan and management is important. Though some people said mylot is a slow earning site, it's well established and I think the management is good, hence I have not heard about any missing payments or any major issues before. Perhaps this is the reason mylot can still survive after so many years. If a site just pays us fast, but can't sustain for long, it might not be good for us too. We might be earning a lot for a short period, then we might lose more.

It is amazing to see how other companies will take it's place and have a similar site or exactly the same. To me if I was the other site, I would want to spin it off as something different. I would figure well that did not work for them, so why do the same thing, but it happens.

A lot of the writing sites have done the same things. I guess they haven't figured out the kinks yet..

MyLot has been around nearly a decade. I've seen writing sites that were powerhouses come and go and with it lots of income. Helium, Associated Content, Associated Content.

@mommaj I'm really confused by what's going on with that site because so far it's still open. With all the uncertainty I'm glad I'm not a member though.

@Gina145 Yes I sent a message to the "contact us" there. I received two messages back, saying the site is still open, they have changed their minds for now. LOL What does that mean? Once more people have money in their accounts, then they will close? HAHAHA

@davidalicea100 That you do not want to join. I just saw a post on here that said the reason they were going to close down is one of the owners took the money and ran. LOL

I think a lot of sites take off then can't pay so they shut down. Just like business offline.

Well, that is probably true. The only thing I see different is that an online business pays commission. They should plan enough ahead to be able to pay their expenses. Seriously, how much could that be if one person owns and operates a site. LOL I will say I am sure it takes more than one person to run a site. LOL

I'm sorry to hear that, what was the site that closed down? I've been on so many of them that it kinda made me wonder was it worth to try & find another site to trust & work on & that's when I was working on bubblews then they shut down JUST after I got on this one & i'm glad I jumped from there to here after I had JUST got paid from bubblew WHEW.

I am glad you were able to get your money from them. LOL Take a wild guess. LOL Elite is shutting down as of the 16th. They said they didn't have enough traffic.I am glad I didn't get to vested in their program. This seemed to be coming for a long time for them.
