which means they pay me more for my articles! I'm so excited about this...it's the first time I've written for anything other than pleasure.It's by no means a lot of money but it's fulfilling.

Hi, that's great news that you have achieved your second star! I would just like to ask you, is that a rating star or a writing star? I'm just interesting in knowing what you have to do in order to achieve that. I too write for Helium, I have only written seven articles at the present time. I cannot wait until I start earning on Helium. Good luck with your future writings. Andrew

Thanks Andrew! I have 2 writing stars and 2 rating stars. I have 7 articles also. The way I gather it,you have to write to competitive titles(7 or more entries)and I don't think creative writing or debates count.When your rated ,it determines your writing score that determines your stars. Keep writing and good luck.

Well done. I also find it fulfilling to have gained my stars, and I think the new upfront payment system is a great incentive to write more articles. It will help to improve the standard of writing at Helium. I have three writing stars now and I'm aiming for four stars by the end of December. My daily revenue share was also better in November than it was previously, earning me around 50 cents each day. I have been paid every month by Helium for the past four months. I have received around $400 so far, from my articles and Marketplace assignments.

Hi Jen, congratulations ! I started writing for Helium in June this year, and like you, for pleasure, and also to check the standard of my own writing. So far, it's been fun; only that it takes time to write an article. So continue and enjoy!

I have been writing for Helium for about two years. When I staretd, it was the beginning. Since then Helium has progressed . I have written many articles. The word count has increased. Crafting an article today takes more time. Writing for a long time has improved my skills but now I lack time for writing. Congrats to you on getting the second star. How many articles have you crafted at Helium?

Thank you!Wow! Since it started! That's great! I've got a total of 7 articles in with some really good ratings. I'm really proud of them. I've usually done creative for myself but I've been writing to title articles on the site and that broadens what I am used to doing.

Congratulations! I have only just started to write there in which I donated it because I couldn't gain anything in the category. However I am planning on entering two contests tonight!

First of all, congratulations on earning your second star. And second, to answer your question, I write for helium. I've been writing for them since last spring, if I remember correctly.

Thank you very much. Maybe I'll get a chance to read some of your stuff sometime. What type of titles do you like to write to?

Congrats and great job! I've been writing for Helium since the summer. I like that I can write what I want and get paid a little for it. I've tried writing to some Marketplace topics, but I didn't do as well. I think those articles are my lowest rated ones. Good luck to you and keep writing...
