Blogger, a Google site, offers a sense of security, but I would struggle to get my blog seen. Blogjob is a blogging community. It pays a small amount for each post and interaction with other members, and allows me to use AdSense and affiliate links but I’m concerned by a line in their Terms and Conditions granting them ‘exclusive ownership of Submission of every kind’. I’m not sure if this means my content or only comments etc. and whether it would prevent me from moving my blog to Blogger if I ever wanted to do so. If you were a first time blogger in my position, which site would you choose?
sort by best latest
Thanks sitebuilders. That's something I might consider at a later date, but I don't feel I'm ready for it right now. Even the thought of having to come up with a lot of fresh content is intimidating.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
10 months ago BlogJob seemed the best option, but after they suspended their rewards program, I moved most of my content to Blogger. I may not earn as much there as I did at BlogJob, but at least Blogger has a future. I'm not sure that BlogJob does.
I want to write, but I want people to read what I write and I'd like to earn money out of it. My problem is that I'm hopeless at marketing and don't have many followers on social media.
I didn't have any followers i when i started the website and didn't really advertise that the site was mine among friends either.
Write great content share on twitter and google+ and people will come. Looking at your hubs, you are a good writer.
Thanks Mike, it's nice of you to say that.
Yes, I've seen you on BlogJob. I've started a photo blog there but I don't think that's the right place for it because there's too much written content required. But I'm no longer sure that Blogger is the right place for that one either.
@Gina. I found you there and contacted the owner and he is giving you credit for referring me since you indirectly did by posting this question. If you do decide to stick with this one I am loiseryan on that site
Thanks @LoisRyan13903 . I was trying to work out where that referral came from.
You're very welcome. I have one as well but not sure where it came from. But any time you share something through places like Twitter, one of your contacts might join
That's good to know. I've been sharing, but I don't have a big following on social media, so I don't get a lot of visits out of it.
For me Twitter works for me with followers. Usually with whoever follows me I follow back
On a whim I signed up with Blogjob, but I haven't written anything yet because I'm still undecided whether it's the right place for me. Decision making isn't one of my strengths.
I don't think I'm ready to write for both just yet.
I've created an account at BlogJob, but I realised it's not the right place for a photo blog because 300 words content is too much for that, so I'm going to move that one somewhere else. Save your points until you have 10,000 and you get $100.
I noticed that too about 10,000 points. It will take me a while since of the blogging limits-maybe 50 days to get 10k in points.
I'm really not sure I've got enough time or ideas to go for both.
