New Internet Writing Site That Pays

Hi everyone, All you writers might want to check out a new and upcoming writing site that pays. It is called addsyou at I think they started up sometime last year. I got an invitation to participate in this web site last year sometime from a friend and I found the owner, Sean, very supportive and responsive. Plus, he's just a very nice guy. It looks like for now they pay along the same lines as Assoc. Content, about $1.75 per 1,000 views and I just got their first newsletter today saying they're putting finishing touches on the site, have redesigned it and will be rolling out changes soon. It says in their newsletter that they will also have a way where you can earn $5 per 1,000 views but doesn't explain how right now. It also states they will no longer be uploading videos or importing blogs, so don't bother with either of those if you post there since those are obviously both going to change soon. Anyway, I've put a couple of writing pieces on there and I'll be putting more. I believe this is a legit site for writers, just in the start-up stage, since Sean, one of the owners, has always been responsive to any question or feedback I've had. You used to have to have an invitation to participate I think at one time, but now I notice their home page says "anyone can join for free" so they seem to be open to everyone now. If you do open an account and post your writing there, if you want to follow me on I will certainly return the favor. I write under the user i.d. on there as Marijoyce. I don't have a stake in this web site, just another writer. I'm just impressed with the young guy who, with his partner, started it and I think it might go somewhere so thought I would let other writers know. I haven't had time, with writing for other sites, to put enough pieces on there to be paid yet, but I don't have any reason to believe this is a scam from my own experience there. I don't think the new changes have taken effect yet, since there are still a few spam articles on there right now as well and they say they're going to get rid of those, but I'm guessing the changes will occur soon.Again, their link is just for anyone who wants to check this out. Good luck to all of you with your writing.

Oh, I want to try this. Thanks for sharing. Is 1,000 difficult to reach? It sounds a large number to me. How long does your article to be viewed by 1000 times? By the way, have you got paid?

Yes, I can't wait to find out more about that plan myself. I'm sure they'll be announcing their changes soon here. They seem to be a good site. Good luck with this.

Thanks for sharing this because I've been trying to find such a site for a long time. Most of the time its just scams or something like that.

You're welcome, and I've had the same experiences with a lot of other writing sites. I've been dealing with this one a few months now and I've only had good responses from the guy who started it. There aren't a lot of writers on there as yet, but it seems to be growing in numbers daily now. Good luck with this if you decide to try it. I like it myself.
