Paid for Reviews and Votes

Last few days has been very productive. I've written an article for AssociatedContent (which still haven't been published) and lately I've written seven different reviews for ReviewStream. And now I'll be waiting for all that material to get processed and published. To be honest I'm really frustrated with Associated Content as their submission procedure takes the longest of all revenue share websites I write for. I simply hope my newest piece for them will get published before New Year. It sort of seasonal content and I really don't want to wait an entire year to see it perform well.

In other news, I decided to do a little experiment concerning ReviewStream. It's a slow one, requiring at least two months.

See, I decided to test their 'every vote pays' policy. Every day, for the next two months, I will be voting on my reviews. I need 50 votes to receive the payment (at the moment $5). I'll be voting on all of my reviews as the FAQ state that votes only accumulate per each review (votes don't sum up, no matter how much I wish they would). So it is my understanding that once one of my reviews get 50 votes, I should receive in my PayPal that $5.

I do realize it seems like a lot of work for a little payout. But I already have over 10 reviews on the site. I open each in a separate tabs (thank gods for the tabs, I have no idea how I managed before them) and click vote in between other tasks. Like I said. It's an experiment. If it works, I get additional payments for my reviews. If not, no harm done, I'll simply stop voting.

I will keep you updated, so no worries.

Hello Jane,
Thank you so much for your blog. I've been reading it for a couple of days, and it's really helpful. I have a question though. Do you by any chance know that people with foreign nationalities (non-American citizens in other words) can write and earn from Associated Content, ReviewStream and others? Thanks a lot in advance,
Best of luck,

I'm European. In fact, English isn't even my first language. So I can assure you that all you need is a PayPal account. Every site linked here is paying to people who aren't American :)

Good luck discovering the wonderful world of writing for cash :)
