Writing, writing, writing


Writing online has been my most profitable venture online by far. I started writing on Ehow about a year and a half or so ago. Since then I have joined Associated Content, Bukisa, and Firehow.

Ehow has made changes to there site, so I no longer write for them. Even though I no longer write for them I make $100 a month in residual income. I do still go to the site and update my work from time to time to keep it up to date, but I do not work on the site much.

Bukisa
is a site that I have not put a lot of work into, but I make a little money on the site every month. I am sure if I would put more work into the site I would probably make quite a bit more, but nothing compared to my other sites.

Associated Content has been one of my top earners with the exception of Ehow. I have made more than I had expected. The only thing I would say about the site is to push for upfront offers. I make money every month from the views, but the upfront offers pay quite a bit more.

Firehow is one site that I feel is a very good up and coming site. The views on my articles have been increasing at a great rate, and my income has as well. If you like to write "how to" articles I recommend this site.

I also use another site to write on occasionally, but I use it more for promoting my articles. The site is Xomba. Xomba is a site that pays you through Google adsense. You can write articles, promote your blog posts, and promote your articles. I use it quite a bit for my blogs and articles. It has pushed me very close to getting my payout on a regular basis. Even if you do not use Xomba for writing, you should use it to promote your work.

I have not had a lot of motivation in the last few months to get to writing, but I am getting my passion back. Once I got through some very difficult times I realized that this is something that I enjoy doing, and I can make a decent income doing it. Writing is something that I will continue doing for a long time, and I hope that I can keep my passion this time, and keep it up.

To anyone wanting to make an income online you should really consider writing. It has been a way for me to make money and express myself through my words. It did take me a little time to get the hang of everything, and start earning, but it has been worth it.

PTC or Pay Per Action Sites

Well PTC (Pay to Click) sites is not something that I usually promote, but I do use a few of the sites. I have to say that I do not earn a great deal of money on these sites. I have came to look at them in a new direction though. I earn more from working 5 minutes a day on these sites than I do off of my savings interest. I usually make on average a dollar or so a week. I know it does not sound like a lot, but that is $52 a year that I did not have before. It is also quite a bit more than the interest in my savings account.

The problem with PTC sites is that you do not know who to trust. Before I discovered writing PTC was my main source of income online. I was scammed by so many that I had to find other options. There are still a few PTC sites that I am involved with, and also a few Pay Per Action Sites. I want to share them with all of you just to give you an option.

Of Course My Favorite Pay Per Action Sites:

Both of these sites have paid me quite a few times, and the payout is $30.










Now My PTC Sites:

ButterflyMails

OrangeBizs

I have been paid by all of these sites. Butterflymails has paid me every week for the last two years in my paypal account, Myfreeshares pays when you hit $10. I have been having a few problems with Orangebizes though. They used to pay every week, now it is taking a month or so. It actually doesn't bother me because I just let the change build up, then I receive a lump sum.

I am sure that there are other sites that pay, but I wanted to share sites that I have personal knowledge about. With all of the above sites I make $300+ a year. I only spend about 10 minutes a day on all of the sites combined, so I don't feel it is a waste of time.


(The above earning examples is with no more than 3 referrals on the sites. I also have not paid for any upgrades on the sites.)
