I actually saw a blogger recently where they said they had made a big $135 that month or something from LinkVehicle.
Great advice, as usual. When I first started out, I heard from a trusted blog source that the guardianlv has a good paying writers program where you can sign up and they teach you SEO and tips and tricks in a “bootcamp.”
I worked for weeks on good pieces for the site and now I use them in my online portfolio of clips, so I got that much out of it at least, but never saw a dime
I tried it out, but it is very clearly a content mill. The guy running it seems like he may genuinely want to be good to the writers, but the business model is what it is, no matter how you spin it. Pay per click just can’t get you the income you need. Beware of anyone putting forth a payment plan based on you getting a percentage of advertising money for clicks on your articles. Not only does it add up to an abysmal hourly rate (on this site, you supposedly get a higher percentage the more articles you can kick out a month), but you have absolutely no way of knowing if you are even being paid what you are due.
Right on, Danyelle – unless they promise data transparency and provide some base pay against that revshare, it’s http://www.hookupdate.net/de/clover-review/ not going to be worth it. I did a post recently describing the right scenario for revenue share.
We are only two years old – one day we will have editors and writers earning over $100,000 a year, but anyone who makes that kind of money as a writer will tell you it doesn’t come easily or quickly
It does exist, but not many places do it in a way that I think makes it a fair shake for writers. I’m lucky to write for one that does. ?? Just billed them for January – I made about $300 a post, for the 3 posts I did.
Earlier this week, Danyelle posted an unflattering note about her limited experience with the Guardian Liberty Voice. One of our senior editors, Rebecca Savastio, posted a response. Then Carol called Rebecca a liar, yanked her post, and wrote an unflattering note about her limited experience with the Guardian Liberty Voice. Today I am issuing two written responses to each Danyelle and Carol, one at a time, and I hope my rights to freedom of speech will prevent these notes from being yanked. Dear Carol, Amid the conflagration, you actually called Rebecca Savastio a liar, and proceeded to lambast the Guardian Liberty Voice, as if we were the online newspaper best known for exploiting our writers. Then you read her the riot act and basically challenged the Guardian Liberty Voice to prove how much our writers make and post it here on your blog. Here is the thing, Carol, we are only two years old and none of our writers are making over $100k a year – yet. Our writers and editors are independent contractors, each running their own business, and I would never presume to speak for them or to out their finances in public. However, I would never ask you to publically out your finances to placate my anger, because that would not really be good form. As you are a smart, assertive person who wants to survey opportunities for writers to make money, Carol, I want to invite you to contact me: Alex Durig, Ph.D., VP Business Development, Guardian Liberty Voice, at or . You have over 100,000 writers visiting your blog every month. You are a force to be reckoned with and an amazing person in your own right. if you went through Boot-camp, graduated successfully, and brought over even just a small percentage of writers from your audience to be on your writing team, then you would easily be well on your way to soon becoming the first writer at the Guardian Liberty Voice to earn well over $100,000 a year. One last thing, Carol, even if you do not want to have anything to do with us, I want to issue an open invitation to anyone reading your well-respected blog: Contact me, Alex Durig, Ph.D., and I will be more than happy to make sure all aspiring, entrepreneurial writers get a running chance to launch your own writing business with the Guardian Liberty Voice, the most exciting online newspaper startup in America.
