Do any of you take the $5 offers on PayPerPost?

I'm usually not comfortable taking more than one a day because we're only allowed to post twice per blog each day. Seems like when a low paying opportunity comes up you're taking a chance. A couple times I've maxed out my posts and had another come up for $10 or $15 that I wasn't able to take! Grrr. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to what the posts are worth. I know it all is based on what the advertiser is willing to pay, but those opps for $5 that require 100-200 words are a joke if you ask me. Then there are others that are $10 for 50 words.

Right now I have 2 blogs, and I am still waiting on the 90 day waiting period before I submit my blogs to them again. I only have a couple of days on one of them and another month on the other blog.

Good luck when you meet the 90 days requirement. The higher your page rank the more offers you have to chose from. Hope you'll make some money! If anyone is interested in this opportunity check out this link: http://thewellpaidblogger.blogspot.com/

I just wanted to let you know that you can take upto three posts from payper post per blog per day. so if you have 2 blogs that are eligible you can post. upto six items 3 per blog.

Thanks! I did hear this since posting here. They've recently made this change and it's a good one!

Since my blog has a lower page rank, I had no choice so I took the $5 opportunities. But most of the time, the offer was like from $5-15. Not bad at all. Like what Kim says, $5 is still $5 dollars and it's adds up. So why not? But some offers didn't make any sense at all. They asked for a 200-300 minimum words for a $5?????? Does this happened to anyone of you here too?

Those are the ones I refuse to take. Unless I'm really wanting that $5, I can't justify typing out 200-300 words for such a small amount of money when there are other opps that pay $10 for 50 words. You're right, doesn't make a lot of sense.

I take any of the $5.00 as I figure it's more than what I had the day before. All of it adds up, so to me $5 is $5. I have over $300 in payperpost right now and a lot of them were the $5 ones, so it does all add up.

We can take 3 opps a day now. I don't touch the $5+ ones until there are no more $7-$15 ones left. I too look at the word count, if there's an opp that pays more and is less words, of course I'm going with that! http://tinyurl.com/2pp9ud

Thanks for sharing about the 3 opps. I was reading this on another forum too and it was good to know. PPP hasn't changed this on the opps page, but someone mentioned it was discussed in the PPP forum. I'll be trying to squeeze in 3 now, the only thing about that though is I have to post 3 regular posts on my blog a day and that takes a bit of work! lol

Very Cool! Good luck to you! Did you only join PayPerPost or did you join others too?

My blog is still not very high ranking so I don't often get to do some of thehigher paying ones. I do the $5 ones now while working to get a higher ranking.

I've been there too. I just recently have a page rank of a 3 on one of my blogs, so I've had more chances for better money. Last year before they made it so hard to qualify for anything I was getting $10 offers all the time. There was even a period of time when they allowed you to take three offers a day for each blog and one day I made $35! Hoping to have opps like that again one day.
