    I think you might be misleading a few people by saying these sites pay monthly. Most of them have a minumum $ requirment, so if you haven’t met the minimum earnings you won’t get a payout that month. You only get a payout once you reach the minimum threshold which is typically $50 to $100.
    • sriramrajOctober 31, 2012
      I dont know who you are Online Writer. But these are the most genuine sites which pay. The minimum payout varies from 5$ to 100$. It is not difficult if you work on these websites for 3 to 6 months to get 100$ monthly. Most writers get them.

    Hi sriramraj. Hope you are doing well. I am a software engg too and i have a thirsty throat for earning some bucks passively through article writings. I ploughed through the internet to find some reliable sites to work for. And i found your site. I have written about fifty articles for a client so i am not a rookie though. Well,my point is, could you just help me in getting a start please? Be my mentor, will you? I am counting on your positive response. Oh by the way here is my blog a/c, in case if you don’t have the habit of watching your favorite T.V show while having some coffee, please pay a visit at
