Forgive me if this site has been covered in one of the many, many hubs about other freelance sites.
I just came across it and thought I'd check in -- quickly -- to see if other Hubbers have written for them and if so, what has been your experiece?
Christoph and Uninvited Writer both write for Suite101, MM. Bet they can give you the low down.
I wrote for them a few years ago. At that time you were assigned sort of a sponsor for your topic. I had a busy spell and couldn't keep up with it for a couple months and was contiuously harrassed by the sponsor to write something...lol I decided I just didn't have the time to commit to the site and I didn't see much of a benifit to stay.
Things may have changed though, it's been at least 5 years.
What Shirley said!
I think it's drier and more structured than HP.
I've been getting semi-OK revenue at Examiner.com.
I want to know how much money that we can get from examiner.com
I had an online friend who did a cooking thing for them-- she interviewed me once and the article still shows high on Google for my name.
I wrote for them for a brief time, but have since decided that I don't enjoy writing for sites that retain ownership of the articles.
I don't write for Suite 101 any longer. I found I was writing too many other places. I didn't earn very much money either.
Suite 101 does Not retain ownership of the articles. They do require that the writer not use the article anywhere else for one year though. It says on the bottom of every article on the site that the author is the copyrighted owner.
Suite 101 does have editorial requirements and your article will not be published if it doesn't meet said requirements. I've read they only accept 20% of the writers who apply. You have to write 10 articles every three months as a minimum or you get dropped from the site.
I write for them now. Altough they have strict publishing guidelines, I find my articles listed at the top of the seaarch engines. People write and tell me my articles are all over the internet. I have not made much money with them, however.
I'm at the point where I want to be selective about where I spent my time. If it's not going to pay off, either in revenue or personal satisfaction, why bother?
Not sure I could handle a demanding "sponsor" like that -- too much like a boss!
Pam -- I recently applied to be an "examiner" too. Fingers x'd they accept me. MM
MM--I'm sure they'll grab ya. My revenue there was better than here at HP right out of the gate and I'm writing about weird stuff (paranormal) in a conservative area of the U.S. (Grand Rapids).
It's not friendly like here at HP though. The comments there are mostly spam or trolls, hardly any *real* ones--and the writers there so far seem kinda weird and competitive. It's not a nice community like it is here. But that's OK. It's not hard to pump out three short pieces per week.

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

I have read from many writers that it is best not to have your eggs in one basket. The advice is to write articles on several sites.Hubpages is the website that I get most of my traffic from. I have written on other sites but they do not bring the traffic like Hubpages do.Are people...
