I think there may be some rogue digits in your private reviews figure - otherwise you'll be paying off your mortgage a lot quicker than you thought...!
Nonetheless great results I just linked to you as an example of how bloggers can still make decent returns. (In contrast to my puny efforts)

Rachel said...

Thank you very much - I have changed the figures now!!

Hi Rachel.
Great results!
You found a way to replace Paid post companies and make more out of your writing, Congrats!

Thanks for your visit. I answered you in my blog but decided to catch up here too.
Good Monday xx

Hi Rachel!

Much better earnings than mine :-)

Where did you sign up to write articles for money, as you name it:Article writing?

Rachel said...

I use digital point forums and advertise my services on there and also reply to adverts on there. I also work with a client with hundreds of blogs and find customers on that forum that want blog posts on blogs and advertise his and then I get a cut of the money I make for him.

Linky Love said...

Thanks Rachel!

How do you "reply to adverts" or will that be obvious once I sign up?

Know any other forum or service that does similar things but related to other subjects than SEO, IM?

Have a nice day!

Rachel said...

You will need to sign up, yes. Then I think that you need to leave comments on a number of threads before you can start posting on the buy sell or trade section. I think they do this to try to protect against spam. It will let you know what to do if you are no eligible to post. Most posters like you to send them a private message or email if you are interested in responding to their request.

I have also found writing work on elance.com. I have found that once I do some work for people they often come back for more, which is fantastic.

Found the buy-sell-trade section, nobody interested in used handbags... :-)

Thanks Rachel, need to do something different as PPP is drying out big time on my side, same on yours?

Rachel said...

Yes, I agree that PPP is drying up - I hardly bother to look any more. I find that PayU2Blog is still pretty good, although the opportunities are getting fewer. This is why I am doing the writing and blog post stuff. It is useful either being able to write quickly about lots of things or having lots of blogs in popular niches (such as finance, health and travel) - having page rank is important to most. Joining a blog network can sometimes help where a group of you all paste the same article across your blogs - can bring in some money. Also offering to write posts on other peoples blogs can sometimes be profitable.

Hi Rachel.
Thanks for sharing what is working for you.
As you know, my English could be better. That´s why I haven´t tried to write articles for DP clients. I´ve been limiting myself to PPP companies, maybe I´m not being smart enough, lol.
I noticed you took that step some time ago, once again, I´m learning with your experience :)
I´m using DP to sell links and blog posts but didn´t have much luck yet. I think I need to be more persistent and explore better what DP has to offer.
All the best for our endeavours!

Rachel said...

With DP you do have to be very persistent - I find that I get a positive response from about 10% of my enquiries. Keep trying and you should find some success with it!

Mizé said...

Hi Rachel.
Yes, I noticed there are many ads every day, many selling, fewer buying.
As you pointed, needs persistence. I´m also affraid of not being paid after the work done...

Thanks for visiting my food blog.
Your answer is in the second part of instruction nº 1, you have to let the chocolate cool first, before adding any eggs. I normally put it in the freezer while I´m doing the rest of the recipe.
This recipe is "not for diets" but if you like chocolate, it´s too good to ignore, lol!
Good Wednesday xx
