Literacy Base Blog Posting Goal Accomplished! (UPDATE Aug 2017)

To quote the wise philosopher, singer/songwriter Nellie Furtado:  

  • "Why do all good things come an end?"


The site Literacy Base has bid farewell.  As of Aug 2017, all links that were supplied below in this post are outdated.  Hopefully, I can find a new home to republish.

Eh!  It happens more often than we would like.  Fun communities and sites bite da dust!



The content below was published Oct 27, 2016.


Accomplished my goal of getting twenty (20) blog posts approved and published at Literacy Base.  This is a blogging community where you can earn residual income not just for blogging but for almost all of your activity.  I'm not kidding!  Even if you just log in to your account, you can earn.


Your activity can consist of participating in groups or forums, updating your profile page, commenting on blog posts, etc.  If you share links via social media and a visitor comes to the site because they clicked on your link-share, you can earn for that!  That means even if you don't want to publish blog posts, and just want to interact and make friends, you can still generate some passive income.


The cash out is $10.  It's a good site if you need some extra cash and also because the folks in the community (including Admin and Support) are very nice.  As of today, there are about 1200 members.  Want to sign up? Click here.  It's free to join!






Below is the list of my posts.  Gives you an idea of some of the things you can blog about.  Of course, if you have a specific expertise or passion, that's even better!

Residual Income : Social Sites That Pay (A 2nd Look) - Update #1

UPDATE May 29, 2016 : This post was first published 02 November 2016. A lot can happen in a short period of time. Two of sites mentioned below ~ BlogBourne and Literacy Base ~ are either closing for business or "in limbo". Those two sites were blogging communities. The 3rd site is actually a discussion forum and seems to be keeping its members happy. Meanwhile, signed up for another discussion forum - ForumCoin.com. It has a points system. 500 points = $5 USD. A nice community and I see lots of familiar faces. You're welcome to join. 



ForumCoin Sign Up is free

 
* *INFO below shared 11/2/2016: 

The link shared below leads to a post that was published at my other blog. It was my first evaluation of social communities that have a revenue-share plan and you can get paid for all of your activity, not just for publishing blog posts.


This post supplies a contrast and comparison for three (3) different sites:  two of them are (in my mind) blogging communities and the other one is more like a discussion forum or a micro-blogging platform/social network.  



All of them have income potential.  







My member name at all of the sites is "cmoneyspinner".  

These are my profile links:
  • BlogBourne (member since August 2016; signed up because a friend asked me to);
  • myLot (member since August 2015).

Join Social Sites That Pay






When I say that I'm taking a second look, I mean that a reevaluation or a second evaluation is in order.


BlogBourne is a site where many of my fellow friends and bloggers are actively publishing and commenting.  It must be a worthwhile effort.  Otherwise, why would they continue to stay there?  However, for me, navigating the site to find topics of interest to me feels a tad bit awkward.  Also, to get a post approved,  400+ words are required. For these reasons, my activity at this site is not very frequent.


By contrast, my efforts at Literacy Base and myLot are much more rewarding, and as such, I login to my account almost every day.  There is always something to be done, in addition to blogging, at either of these sites that can generate some extra income.  


In fact, myLot doesn't even require blogging.  But if you wanted, you could describe your activity as micro-blogging.  Starting a discussion there is very similar to composing a short Tweet.  (A short Tweet?  That's a redundant expression, isn't it?  I apologize.  :) )


To get a post approved at Literacy Base, 300+ words are required. For some reason, it seems easier to write 300 words than 400.  (It's psychological.  I'm a fruitcake!  )  But you can easily earn from contributing to forums and groups, updating you wall (or timeline) with a quote or some random comment, leaving comments at blog posts published by others, etc.


  • NOTE:  To be fair, you also don't need to blog at BlogBourne.  You can be active in the same way as on Literacy Base.

With Literacy Base (cash out at $10) and myLot (cash out at $5) - look up at the right hand corner of your screen and you can immediately see your earnings.  With BlogBourne (cash out at $10) you have to calculate what you've earned by multiplying your accumulated coins by the exchange rate.  (Not sure what the exchange rate is.  It's probably best if you ask the BB site owner directly or click here to read a post by a blogger who is a member at both sites.)


Two final remarks:  

(1)  All communities have really nice members, including the Admin folks.

(2)  If you are a newbie blogger, these sites are a great place to get started.  If I could go backwards, I would have started my blogging attempts at sites like these.  Eh!  Live and learn!  My pain is your gain.

Sites That Accept Republished Content (UPDATE #1)

In November 2015, I shared some information about reputable sites that accept republished content:  Republishing Previously Published Content.  This listing has been edited by the its publisher but even with edits, two sites, are not included on her list:

Niume and Medium.

Sign up for Medium.                         Sign up for Niume.

Medium was launched in 2012 by two of the founders of Twitter.

Started republishing my previously published articles and blog posts at Medium about 3 years ago.  Both sites Medium and Niume) are respected and enjoy a good online reputation.  It is a good way to make your work more visible to the search engines and build your online reputation.



What I like about Medium is that the republishing process is simplified.  You simply import your content, do a bit of editing and hit the publish button.  You can introduce your content to a new audience and connect your social media accounts for simplified sharing as well


"If you're not publishing on Medium, you're missing out on a huge potential audience for very little extra work."
(Quote source: 10 Insanely Good Reasons You Should Publish On Medium) 

Below is an alphabetical list of my articles and blog posts republished at Medium with minimal effort.

Niume is based in the UK, was founded in 2012, and launched as an open platform in July 2014.

Initiated my republishing efforts at Niume in 2017. My work efforts at this site were mentioned briefly in another post - Work at Home ~ Home Biz Projects : Another Weekend! - UPDATE #1.  But that was in February 2017.  Here it is just two months later (April) and not only is my previously published content considered acceptable for publication but they have also allowed me to publish some original content.  In addition, several of my posts have been featured; what they refer to as "Staff Picked".  This goes far beyond what I expected.  Below is a quick list of my content chosen to be featured by the moderators at Niume.

Wizzley Welcomes Writers | Newbie or Experienced

Earn passive income. Wizzley is an online writing community where several of my articles have been published on a wide range of topics. The community is friendly, the support is fabulous and many freelance writers and people who work at home will like the relaxed work at your own pace environment. Some parties have taken the extra step to write a public review. Some are happy. Some are not.  My plus?

Wizzley is a great place to park your evergreen content and let it generate residual income from Google AdSense.

My Twitter Weekend Wrap-Up

Paper.li is a tool that helps you publish your own online newspaper. How cool is that? You can create and publish your very own "Daily Planet " with news items of interest to you that might be of interest to other readers also.


Republishing Previously Published Content

Information for those who used to contribute to YAHOO Voices before that network was shut down. What many of us liked about the YCN (YAHOO Contributor Network) was that it accepted "previously published articles". What was really great was that payment was actually received for articles that had been sitting at another site for well over a year with almost nothing to show for it!


Earn Money For Publishing Short Posts

Daily Two Cents (dailytwocents.com ) is an online writing community very different from the others. It's pay-per-view, includes social networking, and allows the writer or contributor to earn 100% on their affiliate referral links. That's right! NO REVENUE SHARING!! You keep what you earn!

Blogjob.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted? (Post Update)

Link below is to my post dated a year ago (September 21, 2015) and although my impression of the BlogJob blogging community is still good, one thing reported in the 2015 post has changed.  The Rewards and Points program was discontinued.  Other than that, it's all good!




After the announcement was made by the site owners that the cash incentive program was discontinued, many members left the site but a few remained. For me, it was a good decision to keep my blog up and running, for all the reasons listed in the previous post. Instead of moving my blog and republishing elsewhere, the name was changed from "Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging" to "My Pain, Your Gain"; and the blog was expanded by adding pages listed below.

myLot.com - A Milestone and a Second Impression

Last August (2015), published a blog post presenting my first impression of myLot.com, a social network / discussion forum that I joined. So it's been a little over 8 months and as of today, my profile boasts 125 discussions initiated by me.  I think it could be called a significant milestone and you can consider this post my second impression.  :)



Along with that, the site owners have made some major strides in improving a system which in my opinion was already terrific!

  • They added three social media share buttons: Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook.
  • They made it much easier to add images to your post for pinning and also include a reference link, if you started a discussion but you want to refer your reader to additional information.
  • They made it easier to hashtag your Tweets. When you generate a discussion, you can tag it appropriately. It is recommended that you choose up to 5 tags. If you tag your post and then Tweet it for sharing, the tags automatically convert to hashtags. That's a neat feature!

This community is really fun and they really do pay the 15th of every month ($10 minimum cash-out).

Below is a sampling of my posts. Hope one or more catches your eye. You must sign up if you want to leave comments. If you're not a member but you like the content, feel free to share with others.

Thanks so much!
