Once upon a time Suite101 paid it’s writers, then they stopped. A lot of writers left, some stayed.
Now Suite is offering to pay writers again. But!… they want quite a lot for the money. You are to maintain the topic on top of the actual writing. This means responding to emails, keeping a running and moderated forum and so on.
The articles you write are to be word perfect (that means more than just spellchecked on MS Word). They are to be at least 400 words in length and you are to publish at least 10 articles over the course of a month. This is more than two each week. It doesn’t sound like much but if you are doing this regularly you will run into dry spells and times when you just don’t have a second, third, or tenth article in you. However, you can get a guest writer, assuming you can find one.
They guarantee a pay of $75 a month, for the first three months. After that it’s $1.50 per 1,000 page views. So it will depend on you generating traffic, which of course, benefits Suite and yourself anyway.
Is it worth it? I’m not sure. It would be a lot of work and no sure pay. Especially as they have a history of stopping pay. Risky, yet I’m still reading it. 🙂
