I started blogging since March of this year. At first, I just blogged because I wanted to write, to bring out some of my thoughts lest they’ll burst out of my brain. Lol…
I had come across blogs that talked about earning online and had read somewhere that one can earn real money from blogging.
I thought if I can catch two birds with one stone then so much the better, so I added my Google adsense ads. I was dismayed to learn that it barely earned for me. It took me months to earn $15. I tried bidvertiser, clixsense, amazon.com, home page earnings, but I have given them up altogether as I didn’t earn anything even close to a dollar. I tried Performancing ads too, but it seems they have some problems (See Turnip’s blog for updates on this) so I decided to delete all their ads.
I tried also smorty, but I did no see any writing opportunities there or ways to earn a respectable amount of money, so I also decided to delete it.
Then I came across MyLot forum. I was happy I did, because I joined primarily to interact with global users through discussions, questions and answers. I found to my delight that they pay you for posting and replying, so I reached their payout ($10) within 3 weeks. I have earned more than $15 , which was the first real money I earned on line. You earn much more depending on your dedication and quality responses. Then I met through my lot writers who wrote for other sites, that was when I came to learn about Helium.com.
I was skeptical at first when I read them posting about how they were earning more than a $100 dollars a month. I thought it was impossible, because of my previous experiences. A dollar a day would be good enough and I was earning $1.65 at MyLot.
I browsed around the site and discovered that a writer can make money several ways: the marketplace, citizen’s contests, writing contests, rewardathons, WSP and so many more. Reluctantly I joined their Writing contest on the topic Nutrition and Basics. I wrote 7 short articles (400 minimum words) and forgot all about it.
You could just imagine my surprise therefore, when I received $40 in my helium account. When I checked where it came from, it was from Helium.com , Adopt a Title Contest. I was so happy! I know now, it really is an unbiased site as I won, even if I don’t know anyone there.
From then on, I browsed all available writing opportunities they offered. I earned another $22 from their summer Rewardathon, a WSP (Writer’s Stimulus Package) and also still earning daily from my page views.
Every week, they change the topic of the Writing Contest and this week, they have “Conditions and Diseases” which I am quite familiar with so I’m going to join.
I could not imagine writing a total number of 78 articles if not for Helium. The site motivated me to write and write and write, because I am able to compete among the best and improve my craft as well.
And I have also written for the Marketplace, in which advertisers pay writers for articles they have selected for their products. They usually pay you within the range of $24 to $176 depending on the article needed.
I am barely a month there but I have earned already $ 72 and still the earnings are coming in for the on going contests, marketplace offers, and the page views I get daily which would be a lifetime income for me.
What’s good about helium is that, except for the MARKETPLACE, I can submit previously posted articles from my blogs as long as I wrote them.
Now, I believe that you can earn big money online if you are in the right site and you are dedicated and have a passion for writing. (and mind you, this is not a paid post!) I’ll be earning if you’ll make me your referral, but that does not really matter to me. You can go directly to Helium and register, just do it! I just want you not to miss this chance of a lifetime!
