There's an awful lot of sites out there claiming to pay users to write online articles, blogs and other such things. And a handful of them are actually worth checking out.
Textbroker is more of a technical writing site, and users are required to take a test at the beginning to determine pay rate. The good news is that pretty much anybody is accepted to Textbroker, but the pay is also not that great.
This is sort of the Wal-Mart of freelance writing sites. The worst part about Demand Studios is their seemingly unpredictable hiring process. Writing experience is highly valued, it seems. Pay is up to $15 per article, and that ain't bad.
Amazon's mTurk program, which stands for Mechanical Turk, is a different kind of writing site. Users are paid per task or "Turk" that they accomplish. Some tasks are simply visiting a website or taking a brief survey, and the money can add up if you want it to.
Bukisa pays per thousand views of your article. Unlike other ad-sharing writing sites, Bukisa offers a flat rate per thousand views. But the money is slow to grow. Good thing to have on the back burner.
List My 5 looks and feels like the oldschool eHow site did, before Demand Media took over. Back in the good old days, before the New World Order of editors came into power. Anyway, this site is on the up and up, check it out.
A tried writing for demand media but the articles they want written are sssooooooo obscure.
Thanks for the list of get paid to write websites. H5!
I write here and at Textbroker. Most of my writing is with the Yahoo Contributors Network. I have never tried Bukisa, though I know others that write there and enjoy it.
Great information, I'm on track with a few of these and will try Amazon and Music Examiner. Your list is very valuable! Thanks
I think Bukisa is switching over to adsense-sharing soon. It may mean more money for its writers.
Good list of paying websites and user comments by you. Thanks.
Nice list. I've tried them all except Bukisa.
Great list of Paying websites. I like your list
