Update on My Blogging Projects ~ I'm Expanding!

Now active is several blogging communities and/or forums; many with income potential. – a discussion forum with a $5 payout. You don't have to start a discussion, just chime in on a lively conversation. You earn based on your interactions. Been paid more than once. – a discussion forum with a $5 payout. Like MyLot , you don't have to start a discussion, just throw in your two cents wherever. However, you don't earn coins as quickly as with MyLot ; or let's just say as easily. But you can earn. Just started and have not reached payout. – pay per view site; $1 for 1000 unique views. You also earn $1 for a referral, if the person who signed up using your link actually publishes a post. I like it because it accepts republished content, so I don't have to think of original content. Sometimes I publish original content there. They have a donate button. Don't know if it works. Nobody has made a donation to support me. – mentioned in a previous post as my alternative to when that site discontinued its Points Rewards Program. $10 payout. Have only reach payout once, but did receive payment. – republished content accepted. No monetary incentives. Good for building your online reputation.

Also signed up at those sites that pay you for reading eMails, taking surveys, watching videos, playing games, etc. Nothing to report as yet. seems to have income potential.

I didn't know there were sites that accepted republished content. Do you have to certify that you have the right to republish the content?

I'm sure the donate button at Niume works, but I won't count on people using it very often. I love that Niume is cool with previously-published work, as well, but unfortunately not many other outlets are, so it's still pretty hard to cross-publish.

Not certify as such. Most people simply supply the original link to where the post was first published. The idea is to hopefully drive traffic back to the original site. Maybe if the reader likes what they read at Niume, they will click the link and visit your blog to read your other posts. It works! Not saying it works for me. But sometimes when I come across an interesting article at Niume, I click to visit the original site. :) It's a "collaborative blogging platform". That's how the owners describe it.

It's the reason I got excited about YAHOO Voices. They accepted my republished content and I actually got paid for it. Then they shut down. Story of my online writing life. There are lots of sites that accept republished content. Niume and also Medium are my alternatives to YAHOO Voices. The difference Niume offers to pay you. Medium does not pay, but their site has a good reputation which could help you build your online reputation.
