WFMW: Daytipper

So, I wanted to make sure that I got paid before I told you about this, because sometimes these things are scammy. This one, though, seems to be legit.

I made $42 writing tips on DayTipper. That's right, forty-two American dollars in my PayPal account!

All you need is a PayPal account and your own creativity. You submit a tip (500 words or less) on any one of a bunch of subjects (everything from Beauty to Wellness), and when they publish it, they give you $3.

It used to be "a penny for your thoughts." Inflation.

I have had 14 tips published, and I've got 20 more pending publication. That's $60 - for a total of $102, for writing brief (really brief, I can't say ANYTHING in 500 words!) paragraphs about stuff that I do all the time. I find myself going through my day thinking, "That would make a good tip," and then forgetting as soon as I sit down at the computer. But you're much smarter than that.

So, anyway, it's just like Works for Me Wednesday only it pays better. :)

Thanks a ton, will check it out. Be careful, Blogher is kind of picky about using your blog for making money with another company. I got busted not knowing that about their policy. I am unsure if Daytipper qualifies as their no no zone. Thanks for the tip:)

Wow I think I'm gonna have to maybe check this out. Thanks!

Amy said...

Susan - it's not associated with the blog. It's on a separate website entirely. But you're right. Blogher does have policies about that.

Melissa Markham said...

great tip! I would be afraid that I would run out of tips or that mine weren't that original. It is nice though to know whether a site is legit or not!
