Thanks everyone for your feedback on last week’s quick comment about Suite 101 and similar sites. I would love to hear or see links to more stories as I feel this will make a good article in the next couple of weeks.

On a related note, many Craigslist positions and gigs are now not posting how much money you can make, meaning that you may put together a targeted application package only to find out that you are applying to an unpaid position. If that happens, go back to the original ad on Craigslist and flag it as “miscategorized” in the flagging bar at the top left hand corner of the screen. Please also e-mail me, preferably with the link, so that I may remove it from the site if it is on here. That will save other writers the trouble. Don’t flag if the pay is too low, technically they are still within CL rules even if they offer next to nothing. Feel free to send the “employer” an e-mail about what you think though!

I’ve seen a spate of ads for Suite 101 lately. Word to the wise: they don’t pay well enough. They promise residual income, but trust me, that huge carrot they are dangling in front of your face is a giant lump of… well, something else.

Here are how ads on websites work, for those who don’t already know. A well-traveled niche blog like this one MIGHT make fifty cents a day, if we are lucky. Suite 101 undoubtedly makes more, but here’s the kicker; they won’t share all of it with you. You will also not receive any kind of proper statistics report that will show exactly how many people have visited your article, unless it is washed through Suite 101 staff first. If you have a solidly performing article, which unfortunately requires more search engine optimization knowledge than writing knowledge, you may get residual income of a few bucks a month. For most, that princely sum is a pipe dream.

Do yourself a favour and do not write for any outfit that promises residual income; residual income is just another term for “we are screwing writers” and you know how I feel about that. Doesn’t matter how new you are, you can find something that pays.

Not a lot today, I have another morning of scrambling to get out the door, but hopefully the above tip saved you some precious time you could be spending on something more profitable.
