Getting paid to write on-line. To many that love to write but can't get writing jobs, because they don't have experience, that sounds to go to be true. With the websites I am about to compare, you can, but how much? That's up to you! I believe so far from just starting to use these sites, that if you had a couple of hundred articles published on both on them, you may make a pretty penny. In my opinion you'd have to be committed to writing as a full time job in order to see any real dough, though.
Triond was the first site I found, that offered to pay you for writing articles. I must admit I was skeptical, as a lot of the sites on-line offer to pay you to work at home, but really we all know, that they always end up asking you to pay them some how.
I signed up, it was a very easy process. I wrote and submitted a few articles, and within an hour or so I had received some views and a couple of cents. As I continued to write and promote my work on sites like Stumble-upon, Face-book and Twitter, the views and cents began to grow a little more each day. I have only just started and haven't yet made it to the next Payday yet, but I will let you know, when I update this article.
They pay you through your Pay-pal, on the 10th of every month. The minimum payout is $0.50 cents.
All the work you submit to Triond must be original, and not published anywhere else on the web, even by you. So your best best if you are using this site and others, is to post on Triond first, let it be approved, then post on others (as long as the others don't have the same policy. Expertscolumn below, doesn't have that policy, so you are able to post the same article that you posted on Triond, on Expertscolumn afterward, but not the other way around.) You still with me?
Triond has a hot content list on the home page, where your articles can end up if they are liked and commented on enough.
I have earned a little so far on Triond, not much yet but I have only just started a few days ago and I only have about 7 or 8 articles so far. I even earned a cent so far for a photo of a painting I painted!
I found Expertscolumn through Triond. Someone else had written an article on it. As I stated previously, Expertscolumn doesn't have a policy like Triond above. This doesn't mean you can go copy something as post it as your own of course. It just means that if you have the same article you are submitting to Expertscolumn, somewhere else on the web, it must be published under the same name that your current article is published under, in order to not be considered a copied item. You are allowed to have it posted somewhere else though, as long as it's written by you.
Expertscolumn, also shows all work on the home page right when it is submitted. I have found that I have made quicker cents with this one so far, compared to Triond, but I have made more on Triond.
The moderators on Expertscolumn, sometimes delete your articles if they think they are copied, even when they are original. Not always but sometimes. I wrote an article on a specific disorder, which I am sure can be found on the web, but I wrote it from my own knowledge, not wanting to change the wording too far from the norm, so I was careful not to change the content and facts. It was deleted an had to be re-posted because they said it was copied. Of course it's going to be similar, I am describing a disorder which has a list of facts, symptoms and what not.
Also I noticed that my Bio section had been deleted a few times, and I had to re-write it. Nothing in the Bio was offensive or inappropriate either.
Other then those couple of incidents, I haven't had any other issues with Expertcolumn. It is very easy to learn and navigate through. I will update these articles as time goes on and let you know any new information about each site.
What I like about Expertscolumn, is that you can cash out at any time in the month (not just the 10th like Triond), but the minimum to cash out is more, at $5.00. So they both have up's and down's.
