Torn Between Three Best Friends : Chose All Three!

During the last quarter of 2016, I faced a dilemma. Had to choose which social site was a worthwhile endeavor. Not just because it was a social site that paid but because my activity at the site was not just a waste of time. At that time it was a choice between MyLot and LiteracyBase and I ended up choosing both. They both pay but I also enjoy interaction with the members. My online friends kept trying to persuade me to join Niume. It's 2017. Jumped on the Niume bandwagon. To my surprise, it's was very easy to get started and the members there gave me a warm welcome, just like the users at the other sites. So now my time is divided between these 3 sites and it looks like the residual income streams can become be more consistent. I'm happy! If you want a quickie comparison as far as payouts are concerned. = Niume ~ Quick. = = LiteracyBase ~ Quicker. = = = MyLot ~ Quickest! UPDATE AUG 2017 Sorry to report this is old news. Literacy Base bid us farewell. UPDATE SEP 2017 Niume closed its doors. UPDATE SEP 2017 A ghost took over Literacy Base. This site is haunted.
Started a discussion a few months back about how excited I was to be a member of another blogging community. Unfortunately, this community has 'gone dark'....

I've joined Niume too but haven't contributed much there. I guess I find this easier.

Yeah. That's what I thought. But a friend told me she only signed in when she wanted to chat just like she does on MyLot. That's when it occurred to me to take a second look at the site. Like you I joined but wasn't active. When I published my 1st post at Niume, I'm like: 'This is kind of similar to MyLot!' Now I don't even know why I even thought it would be difficult.

I've found out that I'm a one-site person. As I don't know the two other sites you've mentioned, I'd be interested in learning about them.

Didn't you just contradict yourself?

What happens is that I get into conversations with certain friends at the different sites; and then start checking back in from time to time to say “Hi!” Before you know it, I'm active at all of the sites. It amounts to hanging out with a friend or a group of friends, who live in different locations. Whenever you stop and visit them at their “house”, y'all end up discussing everything from politics to recipes; except that in these online communities you actually earn some extra income for socializing.

@TheHorse No, I don't see it this way. It's always good to be informed. It doesn't mean that I'll commit myself to a cause the moment I know about it.

Cool! There are really serious writers there who have an expertise or a passion and then there are writers like me who are kind of spontaneous, not very long winded, and "freestyle", i.e. don't have a particular expertise. It's a flavorful mix. Just like here at MyLot.

Wow! Those are a lot already for me. And you are blogging also? I only have Mylot and my blog. But most of my time is spend in studying on blogging. At the moment, I am spending my time editing my past articles. I found out that I should have good titles and most of my titles are too long.

I think 70-100 characters is long enough I hate very long titles because I have to edit/delete some words when tweeting

Me too! I'm not trying recruit people away from here. Some folks here have the same goals I have. Looking for multiple residual income streams. We share what we find. If we find a site that works for us we share, I'm here at MyLot because somebody at another community told me about it. Glad they did! My peeps know who I'm talking about.

Thanks for this information. Niume and LiteracyBase do sound like sites that be worthwhile.

You're welcome. Niume is actually like a cross between MyLot and LiteracyBase. All 3 make payments via PayPal.

I have loads of time. I'm unemployed. I'm at home all day. I am very thankful my kids gave me a laptop with Internet access. Now all I have to do make the use of my time spent online profitable so I can help them pay the bills.

I've pretty well ignored Literacy Base for months. I split my time between niume and myLot when I'm not writing blog posts.

I am glad that Niume allows your to republish your original content. Sometimes I take old blog posts or article and try to breathe life into them again. I also like the fact that you can do short posts just like you do here at myLot. I sign in to all 3 sites every day and work in between them and my blogs. I like that they are all easy to share via social media too and the cash-out is a reasonable amount!
