The Online Writer Needs to Constantly Find New Sites to Write and Earn

I do like Triond and find the site user friendly.  It is a cool site.  I wish the earnings were more.  With Triond, you only see your earnings go up in pennies.  But with google adsense you get 50 % of the revenue.  Maybe that is the same with Triond, but it doesn't really seem like much.  But I wrote a bunch of poetry and articles there today and did notice that I earned some today with google adsense.  So it works a little bit.  Perhaps the trick with Triond is writing more stuff and the more active you are the better your success. 

I bet this is true with any site.  I wish I was still with Hubpages as I think I earned more money there.  Oh well.  I can't help it if I didn't know I was blogging and I can't come back to the site. 

So I just will have to find other places to write and earn.  I still haven't had any luck with Helium.  And I am learning you can't even write in the first person.  Too personal.  Nothing personal.  And there your articles get picked out for you.  You can't choose your titles.  I'm still waiting for my first star there and I haven't earned a thing and I've written about 17 articles there.  What is the good if you can't earn anything?

Wikinut and Wizzley are neat and I should try to write more at these two places.  I have yet to try Gather and Bukisa.  There is also ExpertColumns that I haven't signed up for yet.  I'm not sure if I want to if it is anything like Helium.

Then suddenly I forgot all about InfoBarrel and that I had an account there, so I was there writing my first real article there.  I didn't realize that you could write and earn there.  So I will try it and see what happens.  I guess you don't want to have all your eggs in one basket, so to speak.

And there is Squiddoo.  I have an account there too but it has been a while since I wrote anything.  I wasn't sure if I liked their set up.  At first I couldn't figure out their lense set up.  Maybe I just need to go back and give it another try.

And then I think there is Newsvine although I have yet to write an article there.

Igoogle is a good place for social bookmarking and then you can check to see where everyone is writing from.  Sometimes you hear about a site you hadn't heard before.  And there is of course Blogher.  But that is a place to get people to go to your blog more than anything.  You are basically posting for fun and advertising to your other places.  Although maybe there is a way to earn there too.  I haven't figured it out yet.

Anyway you have it, all these sites make a killing off us.  I recently read an article today on Triond that Triond makes about $500 or more a day on all of the ads and all of the articles that we publish.  So of course they make a killing on us.  It's really not fair.  Hopefully one of these days down the road all these sites will pay us a little better to write for them and let us see a better increase to our earnings. 

So keep writing for all these sites and use google adsense and amazon associates with all of them.  Although I have heard a lot of people don't really see too many earnings from Amazon.  What has to happen is that the person that clicks on an Amazon item has to actually buy the item from going through your article.  That's the only way you earn from Amazon.  So good luck.

I suppose you can earn a little bit anyway.  It can't be a complete loss.

My google adsense earnings are getting closer to the ten dollar payout.  Hopefully within a few months it will get to that.

Well, it's getting really late, and I should head to bed.
