Online Writing

One of the best ways I have found to make money online is by writing online.  I have a blog listing just the writing site. It has turned into more of a directory for me. I often look there to check sites I haven't been on in a while.

These are the listing pulled from that site that I use the most:

fireHOW is a newer site to write "How to" articles. Once you join their WPP plan they pay per month for earning over $10.

Helium articles need to be at least 400 words long. You can earn money up front for writing a contract articles on predetermined article titles. You also earn money from rating articles and contests. Helium will pay through Paypal when your earnings reach $25. They also have a market place where you an earning amazing amounts by getting a freelance article. $12 to $280 per article on just the first page!

Those two listings are my favorites. Looking over the writing site, I see some changes that need to be made as things have changed since I have made that list. However it still a great place to start and I'll be making changes to it soon. It take a lot of time to check all the sites and changes. Now when I used to be able to do my day job and write online I had a lot more time and made more money. Now that my day job is more time consuiming, and pays much better, I haven't had as much time as I should and there for made less. Most importantly I'm still making money online.

When I took my new job, Ehow was the best online writing site. However they felt it was time to move on and had writer either remove their article or bought our articles. I sold out. I had to remake my library all over again without using anything from what I sold. I still find that hard to do as some of those articles where my heart pouring out on the page. It was a nice payout and just what my family needed for me to make the job change.

Still today many people are amazed to find that I'm a writer. I'm not the best speller and I'm sure grammar experts will go crazy with my articles, but I enjoy writing. Writing online has done a lot more then make me money. I learn a little more when I write and when someone points out an embarssing mistake. I have also made many online friends, some I have come to care for very much. For me the friendship is priceless.

Earning money online is possible and it doesn't need to cost you anything but time. Anyone can learn to write online. All you need to do is try. Fellow writers are often happy to help. Spell check and grammar checks are easily found all over the web. People can write about almost anything. I figure this is my kind of retirement plan. If I keep writing I should have thousands of good articles and I can even writing more when I'm retired and hopefully sitting on the porch in the sunlight.

Note a good grammar checker is


Auctions for free stuff at Listia.comAuctions for free stuff at  Listia is an interest auction site that says you can get stuff for free. Now I've tried this for a while, as I didn't beleave it. Listia use points, points are used to bid on items, many items have free shipping. Points can be bought or earned. I currently have 4000 and haven't spent anything. I have already received a WII game and controler.

The site is nice overall, I could see room for small improvements which I think will come in time. However I can see Listia being a great way to get free items which can be kept or sold. Listia also doesn't cost to list items, so you can sell unwanted items for points and use the points for more items. There are new items all the time and everyday I see more users.

Overall there is nothing to lose to give the site a try. Points can be earned by sharing auctions, visting the page, filling out surveys, watching movies, or even completing an offer. If you see something you really want, points can be bought so you can get the item without having to wait to earn points.

Getting back into the swing of things

Well, I have taken a break for a bit from online. A started a new job about a year ago and got promoted about a month ago. I'm ready to really get back into earning online. Now I'm still making payout every few months from sites like Helium, firehow, triond, and send earnings. Send earnings and helium where the only two I put a little time into. About an hour a month into helium just to rate article and about a half hour a day going though emails from send earnings. My current earning on send earnings is $25.57
Payout is $30.00. This is just a little over a month of work. Now that may not be a lot per month, but I really haven't done much. Even that half hour was time where I was watch the TV with my laptop on my lap.

I'm also selling things online. I have posted once before on this site and just post one last night that has already sold. Yardsellr.  I love yardsellr because it doesn't cost to sell or post. The buyer does pay a fee but with the photon it a wonderful price in the end. You don't have to buy photon or anything. Photon are given away for posting, buying, browsing, logging in, sharing.. and I'm sure there is more. So if you have item to sell this is the place to list them without worrying about all those fee to just post. Now you can promote the item yourself but they also have an option to invest a little money, I think its $4 but not sure on that, and they will help promote the item for you. Totally worth it if you have something of big value to sell or need to sell faster. Here is a link below to yardsellr.

I'm going to be working today on updating blogs and posting items on yardsellr. Happy to be back and can't wait to share some good results with everyone soon.

Seekyt is longer a bookmarking site. It is now a writing site. OK, another writing site. But seekyt does have some benefits that no other writing site that I know of offers. Not only does seekyt help us make money with our google adsense account but also with Amazon Associate account. Amazon Associate account is free and easy to sign up for. The admin at seekyt is very nice and very help for any question setting up accounts.

You can publish articles of just about anything of interest. So far I have earned nicely with the google adsense, and looking forward to see how adding in Amazon Associate is going to work.. but every penny is nice.

I just posted an article about "What to do When the Internet or Site goes down". This was wrote because I had my whole day planned around a certain site, but the site wasn't working. Well I wrote that article instead and then cleaned my office and called it a day. The article has earned some.. not bad for just rambling about my problem for the day.


I just found out about mylikes.It a simple site to use. You find sponsor links that you like and share them. Money is then made from people clicking on them. You can't tell people to click on them, so you only make money if people are really interested in the post. The post can be on twitter, facebook, youtube, blogger, posterous, thumblr, or wordpress. The amount paid chances per add and how many followers a person has.

Payment goes into paypal weekly on Friday's when the account is $2.00 or more. Best of all there is no copying and pasting as with some site. Simple click like and choose what time you would like the post to be posted. One of the simplest way to make money online.

Keeping a good group of followers will require much more than sponsor links. Followers are going to wait to see something fun or interesting as well. For me I share everything I post in my writing world. Hopefully the followers find something interesting that way.

Check out mylikes and see what you think

Weebly is an interesting site I just learned about where you can make your own website and/or blog for free. Now I know we make blogs here on blogger, but weebly can make a whole site; meaning a lot more options. This may be the perfect place to not only promote your writing but set up a store as well where you can sell your writing or maybe a friends writing; like ebooks.

Another way to use weebly or blogger beside promotion to make make a blog or website based on one subject. Just like this blog is dedicated to making money online. Making money online is really a fun job that takes lots of work and dedication to really make a nice income.

Don't forget to set up an "about me" page somewhere. It place where you can send potential clients (or readers who want to know more) to learn more about you as well as seeing links to your accomplishments as an online writer as well.
