I have been on several writing sites that pay, for a few years now. Several have closed down, some I have left because they stopped paying and some took the writers for a ride. .
Today I am on just three sites and spend most of my time here at Virily. I like it here and I do well here because I actively participate.
I have memories of sites that no longer exist. Some did pay well and the interaction was great but they just vanished without a trace. The site that informed its users that they will no longer pay is Wikinut. They also permitted us to delete our work there so that we can use our articles elsewhere. But those sites that did not let us delete our posts we lost all our work. Such is life.
Would you like to talk about your experience with writing sites that pay you?
