Updated on May 24, 2013

When Does The Revenue Sharing Program Stop

The revenue sharing program at will stop at the end of May, which means that members of the site will no longer be able to earn money after May 31.

I recommend not hurrying to the site and trying to make as much money as possible over the course of the next few days because the chances are that you will not be able to make the payout threshold, even if it is only $5. Many members of the site cannot even make this about of money in a two week period, and if by chance they do, then the chances are they wrote a lot of articles in the two week period to make the $5 payout.

What Happens To The Writers' Articles

So what happens to all of those articles that the writers have written for You would think everyone would be in a hurry to delete all of the articles and then try to publish them elsewhere, such as their own blog, site or another revenue sharing website. Judging from a bunch of the writers' comments and recent articles, many writers on the site have attempted to do this only to find that the site disabled the edit/delete options for their writers.

Is this a coincidence? Probably not, so it is a safe bet that the site will just keep all of the writers' articles because lets face it, if a bunch of writers deleted all of their content, then the site would tank right away and it would be closed down virtually right away due to not having any content.

Is The Site Shutting Down

Is shutting down? Nope, the site is just not sharing any of its revenue because it says that there has been a decline in traffic, therefore they can no longer share its revenue. Could the site have done a few things to make it better or to continue to share its revenue? Of course it could, but the site probably just wants to make as much money as it possibly can, and that is evident from the very low payouts and the fact that writers cannot even delete or edit their articles anymore, just as the site announced that it will no longer share its revenue.

Final Thoughts was never a great, or even a good site to write for. You write, write and write some more in hopes of making a few pennies for the day. This is what the average writer could have expected from the site, and if anyone disagrees with what was just written, then ask yourself this: when is the last time you earned $50 in just one week from the site, or how about $15 or even $10 in a one week period? The chances are never.

The above paragraph may seem harsh, but writers on Experts Column should have seen this move coming, as the site showed many signs of not being a good place to write for, at least when one's goal was to make some extra money to pay the bills or to save.

      Interesting, looks like they are thinking about what to do and may reinstate revenue sharing later.

      I found the site unpleasant to use and the format of the published articles unpleasant to read.

      I will be rewriting my stuff there and posting it other places.

      I just read something over on the site, and apparently it looks like writers will have to wait until September to have the option to delete their articles.

      Nor is is possible to reset your password. I just sent them an email telling them to close my account and delete all articles.
