Writing sites on the net are there to make money. Its a business proposition and if they don't make money they pack up. i have had the priviledge of writing for 2 excellent sites which have now gone from the horizon.
The first site was a Hyderabad based site named www.writink.com. Till date this was the best site as it paid Rs 150 per article of 800 words and 75 for an article of 400 words. the site had an excellent interface and once you were accepted into the site, the available topics were displayed and you could pick and write on that topic. The topics were mostly on finance and allied matters.
One could make a fair amount of money on the site and in one month I submitted 200 articles and earned Rs 30,000. Unfortunately after 3 years the site closed up and when I spoke to the owner he told me he had closed the site due to heavy losses.
Another site that came on the scene was www. dailywiki.com. This is a Tamilnadu based site and it paid $100 to the writer who made the maximum contribution to the site in a month. Though the site is still functional it is more or less dead, but when it was running it was an exceptional site. Perhaps the owmer Muthukumar just gave up or lost interest. I earned over $ 1100 on this. site.
Hence any site that starts must try for a global clintele. Avoid pitfall, but more on that later. There are half a dozen Indian writing sites which are still active( which I know). I wonder how long they will last. Amen !
