Helium.com is great! If you give me your e-mail address I can send you an invite so you could be my referral. Otherwise, just go to Helium.com and sign up as a writer. It is slow earning at first, but once you start getting established it goes pretty quickly.

Hi ak. I sent you an invitation for Helium, but I didn't think before I sent it. I don't think Helium is in your country yet. I know that it is worldwide, but it isn't in certain parts quite yet. Check it out in case I am wrong, but I'm sorry about that!

I recomend Squidoo.com, you don't get paid much at first, but as you gain readers your monthly pais hets higher and higher. I started in April 2007 with 5 stories/articles and got paid .37c my first month. By October of 2007 I had 182 articles published on Squidoo, and was making $10 - $12 per month. Now in January 2008, I still have those same 182 articles and am makeing $35+ per month. My lower visited articles have yet to make anything at all. My lowest paying articles, make .07c each, each month. My low-mid-paying articles make .35c each, each month. My high-mid-paying articles make .65c each, each month. My high traffic articles make $4 each, each month. My top article makes $7.50 each month, has won me 2 awards (including the rare "Giant Squid Award" and the highly coveted "Top 100 Lenses" award, was placed on Squidoo's homepage for 5 weeks running as one of the highest rated articles ever written on their site, was listed on their top 100 articles list for 5 weeks, and at it's peak reached #32 on their top articles list. Here it is if you want to see it: http://www.squidoo.com/publishingmethods As my reader following gets bigger, my monthly pay from Squidoo steadily rises. If it continues to rise at the rate it's going now, I'll be bringing in $100 - $200 per month by the end of 2008. The top writers on Squidoo are currently making $300 - $400 per month. However, there are more than 200,000 wriiters on Squidoo, and from what I understand, more than 70% of them make an average of $2 per month and never see anything higher. Last I heard there were only 54 of us who have ever won the Giant Squid award, and we are also the only ones bringing in a steady income of any great amount. The secret to becoming a giant squid is to build write over 100 articles and than promote them like crazy on your blog and homepages, to get readers to visit Squidoo and read your articles. (oh, and you can write either fiction or non-fiction on Squidoo)

I have to agree that Helium is a great site. I have been writing there since late August and just love it. If you are after something different with more flexibility try www.youk.uk.com I also write there and it has been a great learning experience, they are very friendly and supportive. It is still only a small site but well worth the visit. Just incase you are interested in what I write the link is www.parenting.youk.uk.com One last thing, I can't stress enough the importance of linking your work. Sure it will cut into your writing time but it pays off in the end. Good luck and happy writing!
