An Apology to My Readers

I feel that I should apologize to my readers as it looks like many new people have found my blog since I was here last. I was busy with my Nano blog in November, which some of you may have found on  your own. I did pretty good with that this year as I found a place that I can blog for pay, and the same thing is available to any of you that might be interested.

The nice thing is that if you would like to write for the same site you do not have to have your own domain name nor pay for a server, but you will get paid. You don’t get paid for your posts, per se, but you will be paid for anyone that views, likes or comments on your posts. How many views,  likes or comments you get will be determined by how much of the same you give out.

Many people there, mostly newbies, think that until they reach a certain number of connections they will never see the revenue that they desire. It took me awhile to come to this understanding, but it’s not the amount of connections that we have but the amount of solid connections we make and some of that takes time.

Some people there began getting paid within the first three days to a week that they were there. It’s taken me longer than that, usually, because I work two jobs during the spring, summer and fall and then during the winter I try to get everything else done that didn’t get done during the nicer months. Even then I did have a few months were I was able to request my money within seven days, but it was more of a push for me than some of the others that are stay-at-home moms or dads.

If you’d like to check out my nano site it can be found here: http://www.muchadoaboutnano.wordpress.com. For the most part there are links to at least ten posts per day there and all from the site where I’ve been spending my time daily since the beginning of August.

For those interested in checking it out further, I’ll be putting my referral code here. Make sure you read the rules, if you write me a note on my profile page (marsha4852) I can help with any questions you might have. I have been paid every time and I’ve received 12 payments thus far. It used to be that we were paid when we had $25.00 in our bank, but now we have to wait for $50.00.

Again, I apologize for not being here more.

After looking for so long for paying sites, I’ve received more here than ever before. It took me over a year and a half to make $125.00 at ehow.com and I made $40.00 at videojugpages.com (the writing site, no longer exists). A lot of us spend more time there than we probably should, but it’s hard not socializing with each other there as it will benefit us in the long run.

Found Another Writing Site

I found another writing site that pays better than anything else I’ve found before. It’s not one of the ones that I was going to research out in one of my earlier posts. I will let you know more once or after I get my first payout because until then I really don’t know that it is legitimate.

I will say that you only have to wait until you make $25.00 before asking for your money whereas for Hubpages you don’t have it put into your PayPal account until your funds reach $50.00. When I wrote for Ehow.com the payout amount was $10.00 and they transferred it automatically.

This writing site began sometime last year, I believe and already they have over 60,000 members, so it’s a growing community.

For last month, July, on Hubpages I made $1.90 and that was writing nine articles over a two month period. They recommend longer photo and media rich posts to gain organic traffic eventually. For this site that I’m not naming yet, in the last sixteen days I’m up to $14.00 and the day isn’t over yet.

I would probably be higher than that but I took a few days where I didn’t do much and read a good book instead. Even then, it’s almost one dollar per day,  more than what I ever made at ehow or anywhere else for that matter.

I will keep in touch so you can take part in this growing community once I can guarantee the payout and tell you more specifics about it.

One other thing, if you prefer blogging you can blog, if you prefer article writing, you can write articles, if you like writing in a journal, then there are those that do the same and are happy to read the work of others.

December 6, My Writing Journey

Prompt: Writing- the journey from rambling to refined.

A friend and I both have trouble writing without doing any rambling. For me that may be because blogging is somewhat casual, and many of my posts are written in that manner.

One of my goals is to write articles and for that I won’t be able to ramble at all. In fact if I find that I can write decent articles, then I would hope my writing would be more refined. Probably my writing won’t be where it should be in ten years, but at least it should be better than it has been in the past.

Along with writing articles, I want to get better at writing stories. I also want to have web sites set up with single blog niches. I have some ideas for how to accomplish this, and I have been making notes on topics I’d like to cover. Then I need to write some e-books on different aspects of each niche/topic and this is another way in which article writing will come into play and where it would be better for more refined writing.

Everyone’s journey will probably be different. That wouldn’t suggest that one journey is better than another, it would be what is best for each individual writer.

First Ever Blogging Job Possibility

I have the possibility of getting my first actual blogging job. I still have to get more information about it. It would be a major commitment for me as they expect ten blogs each week, although it may be only for the summer months. I would be replacing someone who wanted the summer off for other endeavors.

I would be working for a company in the United States that have doctors for clients, many of them being Podiatrists. It would involve getting interviews, which would be provided, and then doing some research on my own. I would need to incorporate both aspects into each blog.

I would be paid for my blogging, and it would be a decent starting wage for me, better than working with Elance or some of the Freelancing sites, and it would be something I can use on my CV.

The main problem I may have is delegating my time properly because, unfortunately, I enjoy certain computer and Facebook games with my friends. I don’t play them as often as I used to and having a goal of quitting one of my two jobs within two years may give me the impetus I need to make it happen, but I still need to consider the cost before making the commitment.
