There seems to be a lot of controversy about where a fellow should write and publish his work. One person says one site is a rip off and another person says that site is not good. Since I started writing have written for six sites, my very first one was Hub Pages,it was a good site but to make money you had to be signed up for Google Adsense, and I could not sign up. So I move and started writing for Squidoo, that was OK but very nit picky. And got very few readers and no comments.
Then I found Triond and started writing there, it is a nice easy place to publish and I liked it and still do. But it has problems with paying and the writers are not happy because they were to easy and let some porno in. Some feel that Triond is not looking out for it's writers.
Viewshound was another site I wrote for for a while, but they decided it was not worth the trouble. They were a good place to write, I enjoyed publishing there. They were from England.
Next I write for Experts column, it is a good site and also easy to publish, I have published less on Experts than on Triond, but I have already gotten paid. I have a feeling that will be changing because all the dissatisfied writers from Triond are moving to Experts Column, there will be many more articles for people to read so it may take longer to get the next check.
The next place is Wikinut.com it is a site based in England. They have a good system of moderators and won't publish your article unless has good English and grammar, plus they will work with you to make corrections if your article needs it. One nice thing about them they will take longer articles and want you to include pictures in your article if you have them.
Now I have just started working with Mylot and again it is a different kind of site, you get paid for commenting on questions from other people,and you also get paid for posting questions of your own for people to comment on. Then if some one comments on your post you answer them and you get paid for the answer, kind of crazy.
So all in all I have written a lot and not gotten paid much, but I am enjoy writing so will continue until something better comes along
