I have been writing on a number of sites. Some of these are the ‘older sites’ like hub pages, Knoji and Suite101. Then there are the intermediate sites like Experts column, Wikinut, Bukisa among others. As far as the older established sites are concerned they have been too long in the field and have honed their apparatus. But these sites do not pay much, but what you lose in payment is made up by the name and a writer writing on these sites is thought to be a cut above the ordinary.
The median writing sites did try and make
But there is a silver lining in the form of new sites like bubblews.com and pu.blish.us. These sites at the moment seem to have stolen the thunder and apart from paying heavily they are a pleasure to write with photos and a clean and clear interface with the authors and their articles. EC is way behind in this field, though I for one expected that it would revamp itself.
There is also a site www.iwantarticles.com which looks promising with instant payments. But I haven’t tried it. All I can say that the field is vast and the newer sites if they keep up the good start will steal the thunder from the older sites. Let’s see how things unfold.
