None specifically yet I was just looking into ideas. I was also looking at Reviewme.com but I am not sure if HP works for them.
for review me you must own the domain and hosting.
those type of services are ok, but can be considered "paid links" so dont use them on an important site
paid to write, yes.
paid to create blog entries on your sites, no - not the best biz model
More than one way to skin a cat and makes me at least $1200 a month.
I feel that you will not share your secret but can you at least share an idea of what to look for and what to avoid?
But your not working through a blog for pay service? You have specific clients? right?
OK so are you going to make me beg? paid to write where other than HP I have found that I do much better with witting on an assigned topic than I do finding one of my own.
Triond, text broker, paid to post, associated content, suite 101, seed, content current, Examiner, Today.com etc etc etc.
Sorry, but I have a dozen or so hubs on the paid to write sites.
Susana S and Sufidreamer also have some great resources on the freelance sites within their hub portfolios.
I guess, my best suggestion is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Writing-for-mon … nt-revenue
when looking through - any recommendations about Factoidz or eHow should be disregarded as recent changes to each may not have been edited out of older hubs.
I can flesh that out a bit.
Personal story -
i found out through the grape vine and via some adwords research that a certain local industry was paying out a lot to pretty cheesy seo/marketing firms in the area.
Since, I dont really like clients (hence building a passive income stream) I decided i would get a piece of that pie, indirectly.
So I created an optimized, high quality site for a desirable term and over the course of 2-3 months I got it to first page.(which made surprisingly great adsense returns as a side effect!)
This was easy as the seo firms were just using adwords and had no real content network.
I then offered posts at a certain rate for testimonials and business information at a decent price directly to the effected industry and seo firms.
I did not /do not write a single word of content after I got the site ranked. I just paste and hit publish.
As the site grew it began to rank for other closely related terms and I raised the rates for a first page post to reflect the traffic growth.
But, the whole process was quite a gamble as far as time expenditure went and careful presentation, ability for cc billing, sales skills were all necessary in my personal example.
Wow I have read you article SF and also Mark's blog on the subject. both are full of very useful information and are on my list of things to dig into when I have more time.
The OP made me think she was asking about Today.com and similar ilk ..hence the big no!
You can also blog for a network for a monthy salary. I was blogging for b5media before the great blog clean out in march (they terminated every contract)) and I was making over 60.00 per blog post. Of course, I was well known in my area of expertise and my blog garnered over 300,000 hits a month.
The downside is you can be ousted if the network decides to drop your blog, you have no real recourse.
As a single mom I make all of my income from blogging gigs, mine and other networks.
It is not a quick way to make money. It takes time to build traffic whether you are blogging for yourself or someone else... but you can make enough to support yourself. Lots of people are.
For a while I would buy domains at around PR5, with around $5 a day income, run them for a year and fill them with spammy paid posts and then sell off the domain for around half what I paid a year or so later. I actually made between $3000 and $5000 profit per website I did this on, it was a fair amount of work though.
paid blogging (blogger or blogspot) ---- you are paid through ads on your blog.
You know - you people amaze me - I have no idea about any of these money making ideas - you guys have been very creative and imaginitive if you dont mind me saying so - great stuff - inspirational
Irish it is really amazing that there are so many things to learn about all this online money making stuff.
It's worth signing up for some of the free memberships of freelance sites and bidding on blogging work if you want to do it. Just don't price yourself too cheaply. Yes you might need to bid lower when you start out, but keep in mind that it's temporary! Put your prices up as soon as you can. The more experience and happy customers you have the more you can increase your prices.
Blogging for money can be a good regular source of income, which is a nice addition while you build up your passive income.
thank you everyone who responded I have another question? does anyone know anything about a site called "Bright Hub"?
Yes, I looked into it - at the time, you had to be a qualified expert in a particular field to get in. I just had a look and it seems to have opened up a lot.
However I notice they take online copyright of your articles (though you can still sell them to hard-copy publications).
I was accepted as a BrightHub writer - but the rate for DS was better so I never got very involved.
..the getting in part didnt seems so bad, but I have yet to be denied access into any writing site so I may just be good at applications.
Seemed like a lot of interaction with CE's for the payrate compared with other choices
At the time I looked at it, they didn't want any writers on Arts subjects, only tech stuff. Is the rate for DS still worthwhile?
Ive reached a comfortable passive income level and rarely use any of the writing sites for anything more than some pre-researched titles (if they will pay for them, then they probably think they can make their money back)
I havent perused the titles since the eHow freeze. The titles were often very clunky/ hard to comprehend (possibly software generated) but I always wrote one copy for them then a better copy for myself that I would publish here.
I dont consider $15 for an article necessarily worthwhile. BUT, I have a suspicion that many who write for revshare never even see that much per article.
For an advanced online content writer such as your self - I think, it could be worthwhile if you can pop out 2 of there articles an hour.
The stumbling point/learning curve is adapting your style to fit the various templates they use.
My experience there was seemless - but that is not the story I usually hear.
The dissenters always scream louder anyway - the people who liked DS probably didnt want to bring any attention to it - less competition that way.
sorry, about the long response - Im still tweaking all my hubs via the link tool/keyword tab and its mind numbingly boring, this is a good stall tactic. I might pull a JimmytheJock and delete all the ones with less than 50 weekly views - ....Im so kidding
DS has revshare also - any experiments Ive seen in online blogs (comparisons between performance at eHow, DS, Hubpages, Infobarels ect) always seemd to trickle to nothing before a conclusion is made - which means - the results were so positive they didnt want any light shined on the site - or so dismal they didnt want to even type another word .
If the topics you got are strong enough, then paid blogging is good
I find that doing a nice mix of stuff online is best. I have my own blogs where I make money off adsense and affiliates.
I make websites for others. I write articles and blog post. I do some paid linking. I write for sites and get paid by page per view, ads and per article.
I do youtube videos, ezine articles, dating sites and adult. You never know when a website will suddenly die or what model will become obsolete.
Doing a mix of stuff is safe. Remember, nothing stays the same, and with the web that is even more true. Always keep up with what is changing.
I have always had more luck starting my own blog and getting it noticed to make money on my own. As some already stated this can be a time consuming project and a gamble but if you will visit sites and read about how to do it there are some good sites on the net that give good information on how to accomplish this.

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty...

Having spent 18months on hp with some success I'm starting to see the logic in diversifying to other sitesWhere do others recommend? I've had a look at squidoo and find the sports content to be far weaker than hubpages....

If you have a successful blog, please share how you started it, what's the subject matter, and how you keep it up. Also, any things a newbie should beware of. Thanks!
