Well, it's been a couple months now, and I've been keeping an eye on how my five articles are doing at ArticleDocument. I can't say I'm very impressed, however. At first, it looked like some revenue might be streaming in somewhat 'steadily', even if not a lot. At least that way, I'd expect "the more content, the more revenue" might apply, y'know?
Unfortunately, it might be that the sites are not getting enough traffic to generate much revenue. If so, there's little I can do, other than try promoting my articles on social media sites and other places (blogs, etc.).
So, for now, I'm still watching...time alone will tell, I guess, but I must admit, I'm just a bit disappointed in what has happened thus far. I'm just sayin'...
By the way...I've also added a few more sites to 'MY LIST'. Use the link in the sidebar to view in a new page, or scroll down on this page to find another MY LIST location.

Thought I'd try a quick update for my Earn Money Online! blog, to bring some attention to one "new" site (for me) that I have begun submitting some fresh content to. The site is called "Article Document", and it is a 'revenue-sharing' site. They pay through PayPal on a monthly schedule after reaching a $10 balance, according to their "Terms" and FAQ's. So far, I have submitted only five articles, and according to the site's member interface data, small earnings are beginning to tick up slowly, as my content has been "accepted" and used by other sites for publication.
It's very early in the game with this site, so I don't know yet what will happen...but I wanted to keep close watch to see if it proves to be something 'special', if you know what I mean. I hope to update on this Article Document site (and others) frequently enough to demonstrate to my 'fans' (all two of them! - kiiidddddiinng!) what to expect if they choose to follow me there, y'know? Hopefully, I won't have to report any BAD news!
I'm just sayin'...

As I find new sites and enter them into my spreadsheet, MY LIST will update automatically...
If I learn any new, negative information about any of the sites in MY LIST, I will do my best to note those findings in this blog, by highlighting the list entry (RED) and adding a comment (below spreadsheet frame) to explain.
If you see any site listings highlighted as such, use discretion and pay close attention to details during your own research into those sites.
Come back often!
Remember to read and understand all the Terms (etc.) for each site, so you'll know for yourself how they operate.

Well, Thanksgiving went well. Nice to have friends and family visits. Now that it's over, it's back to the blogging and other online endeavors. I've been trying to keep up my "Just Saying My Piece" blog as well as a few other things, but thought I needed to get back here for a brief update.
I cannot say I've been doing a lot of article writing lately, though I have submitted a few. I have also been toying some lately with fiverr.com, where I offer some minor 'digital content' services for $5 (each). It's a lot of fun, though it's not a 'get-rich' system.
I've also had a stab at Quirky.com, where I submitted some ideas for inventions I've thought of over the years. None of mine drew enough attention from the 'Quirky Community', and they've all lapsed into the archives now. It was fun, and I still participate there sometimes (Quirky pays small amounts for participation and 'influence', too). It's a great site to learn about some new (and often very clever) ideas for products that might be coming out some day soon.
I have not done very much to update "My List" (scroll down to view), so that remains a work-in-progress. I've shared it with a number of my LinkedIn network (and others), to help them get going in freelancing. Not that I'm any kind of 'expert', but I do know how to find information, and that's what "My List" really is all about.
I've also been pretty busy uploading some of my original music compositions to my new Google Play Store. My music is not what I'd call 'traditional' or even 'normal'...it's more 'one-of-a-kind' stuff, y'know? I created most of what I've uploaded many years ago, and had recorded it using some basic home equipment. In order to upload it, I had to convert it to digital format (MP3, wav, etc.). That takes time, unfortunately. But, I did manage to upload quite a few songs. Who knows, right? It's a big world out there...someone might even like my stuff enough to download (and pay for) some of it!
I'm just sayin'...

I've been playing the online writing game since I retired from Corporate America at the end of '06...I've written for many article submission sites as well as through some of the freelancing sites; and I'm continuously on the lookout for new opportunities.
My "current" list includes some sites that I have submitted written content or bids with, as well as some I have not yet submitted any content or bids with, but feel they are worth further review. I cannot say for certain that every site on any of the lists is completely "credible" at this juncture, since the list is simply a copy of my own "work-in-progress" list, so some of the information needed to ascertain any site's credibility is still un-vetted. Also, you might see some duplicate links in the lists at this site.
These are sites that I have at least "looked into", and ones that I feel are worth further investigation and/or further commitment. Some, I have simply become a 'free member' with and have not yet submitted any content. Some, I have submitted some content with but have not yet reached 'payout' levels. Some, I have submitted content with and have actually been paid revenues.

Well, here it is, nearing the end of January 2012, and I notice it's been too long again that I did very much real updating here. Very sorry...no real acceptable excuses...just been getting busy with too many other things. Other sites, articles, my zazzle store (http://www.zazzle.com/w1z111/), and a few other things too.
I have discovered a few more article submission sites that I've signed up with, and I've submitted a few articles with some of them. The freelance writing gig is still in quite a "lull" for me, with regard to getting enough pay to justify the time and effort needed for quality research and writing. Too many freelancers living in less costly places who can work for less per unit rates are, in many ways, changing the online writing dynamics.
On the flip-side of that, there is also a very real move afoot by some of the mighty powers behind the Internet (Google, et al.) to demand top-quality content that has proven its merits based on high-falootin' algorithms and web wizadry that these biggies use for operating the Internet at large.
Anyway, I'll leave some links to those article submission sites I mentioned; hav-a-look! Hope some of them can be of value to some of you. Good luck!
