How to Make Money from Virily and 6 More Revenue Sharing Sites (Reblog)

Janice Wald is an award-winning blogger and her areas of expertise are blogging and social media. I follow her blog and I follow her on social media. She is very active on social media and all around the web, and when I see her name, I have to peek! She's simply irresistible. ☺

Her blog, mostlyblogging.com, is loaded with guidance, advice, tips, and tricks, etc.  Everything you need for successful blogging. While perusing the Quora Q&A website, I came across her response to a question - "Do You Blog Outside Quora?" - and that led me to the blog post below. (Treasure hunting is always good when you actually find treasure!)  

I was very interested in reading her review of Virily.com, as I joined this blogging community in June 2017.  It's 2018.  I'm still there.  But I was just wondering if she knew something about the site that I didn't know!  So many sites like Virily have come and gone in the blink of an eye!

Happy to say that her blog post was very encouraging.  Sharing the link to her post and for what it's worth, my additional "two cents" (below the post link).  I think this site is a wonderful social blogging community and I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to newbie bloggers.  If you're thinking of becoming a blogger and you need to start somewhere to gain experience, start with VirilySign up is FREE!







My “Two Cents” About Virily (and the other writing sites):

I am currently a very satisfied blogger in the Virily community. Member since June 2017. I was very hesitant to join. Got talked into joining so many communities just like Virily, only to be disappointed. But Virily has been a pleasant surprise. 

But now I'm like: “Uummm? Should I stay or should I go?” (O.o) LOL. I've been psychologically conditioned by the other sites to expect the site to disappear! But you know what? Right now. It's kind of fun! And it is proving to be profitable.

I think sites built using the revenue-sharing business model, i.e. that primarily rely on ad revenues to stay afloat, can survive. Two things are needed. Honest staff and loyal members. Both are absolutely necessary. Sad to say but my experience with other sites has been that the staff or management was not straight up! The members certainly didn't want the site to shut down!  That was evident!  

By contrast, I have found the Virily site owners, staff and management, to be very involved with the daily administration of the site; they respond to their messages promptly; they keep members apprised of significant changes, and they're based in Estonia. ☺  I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but if the folks from Estonia are as nice as these people, that country is now on my Travel and Vaction bucket list. ☺ 

Regards the other sites mentioned, in addition to Virly?

  • Hubpages was recently acquired and is under new management. My HUBs are articles that are evergreen content and though the earning is slow, I do get paid
  • Tried InfoBarrel and Snipsly. Had no success. Do not make your decision based on my experience.
  • Started with Daily Two Cents when they started and have experienced the changes with this platform. I would recommend joining, although some of my friends did not like it. To each his own.  My experience has been good. 
  • Seekyt was great but when the site changed owners, I deleted my content and left. Wish them success though.  The site looks lovely.

Virily's publishing module is not just for blogging.  You can create quizzes, polls, lists; shared embedded content and videos, as well as write.  It is a very lively social community.  It's like Facebook, only you can earn extra income for most of your social activity.  Just check their FAQ for details.  Below are links to some of my posts, supplied as examples to give you an idea of content that is considered acceptable.

Residual Income Opportunity - Write for Harlow-McGaw Media

Dec 2017 Update:  The content below the asterisk marks was originally published October 13, 2014. The ladies who owned the site invited me to be a contributor. Since that time they have established several writing sites under the umbrella of Harlow-McGaw Media. There are various writing opportunities. I still have a writer's profile at Daily Two Cents and Writedge but I do not contribute as much as I used to when these sites first began. Other writing work came my way during the year and the projects keep me busy. However, most of my content was evergreen so it is still as relevant in 2017 as it was in previous years. If you are interested in signing up for any of the HM sites, read the post for additional details.

  • Charting the Course of History - Daily Two Cents

    When charting the course of history or human events, communication is critical. Miscommunication, misunderstandings, errors in translations could result in the masses believing that earth is being invaded by aliens. "One of the extraordinary things about human events is that the unthinkable becomes thinkable."

Write at TreasurePen.com and You Can Earn A Red Cent! (Strikethrough!)

UPDATE June 21, 2017:

For reasons that I have been unable to determine this website disappeared.  So this post and other posts written at this blog tagged TreasurePen.com or TreasurePen, are either my content which I am glad to have saved and published here and/or my first impressions of this site which can now be completely ignored.

No biggie!  These days I'm hanging out at sites like ForumCoin.com

TreasurePen is an online writing platform that pays you to write short posts similar to how you share messages on Facebook or Twitter. All you need is a Google Adsense account. Yes it is a revenue-sharing platform just like all the other bazillion platforms out there. But all the platforms aren't so easy to write for. That's what makes Treasure Pen appealing. 

My first post was published January 2014. Haven't been there quite 6 months, and also have not been extremely active because there are other new sites I am experimenting with as well for contrast and comparison. But this is a legitimate potential income stream for freelance writers and people who work at home.

Residual Income : Social Sites That Pay (A 2nd Look) - Update #1

UPDATE May 29, 2016 : This post was first published 02 November 2016. A lot can happen in a short period of time. Two of sites mentioned below ~ BlogBourne and Literacy Base ~ are either closing for business or "in limbo". Those two sites were blogging communities. The 3rd site is actually a discussion forum and seems to be keeping its members happy. Meanwhile, signed up for another discussion forum - ForumCoin.com. It has a points system. 500 points = $5 USD. A nice community and I see lots of familiar faces. You're welcome to join.

* *INFO below shared 11/2/2016: 

The link shared below leads to a post that was published at my other blog. It was my first evaluation of social communities that have a revenue-share plan and you can get paid for all of your activity, not just for publishing blog posts.


This post supplies a contrast and comparison for three (3) different sites:  two of them are (in my mind) blogging communities and the other one is more like a discussion forum or a micro-blogging platform/social network.  



All of them have income potential.  







My member name at all of the sites is "cmoneyspinner".  

These are my profile links:
  • BlogBourne (member since August 2016; signed up because a friend asked me to);
  • myLot (member since August 2015).

Join Social Sites That Pay






When I say that I'm taking a second look, I mean that a reevaluation or a second evaluation is in order.


BlogBourne is a site where many of my fellow friends and bloggers are actively publishing and commenting.  It must be a worthwhile effort.  Otherwise, why would they continue to stay there?  However, for me, navigating the site to find topics of interest to me feels a tad bit awkward.  Also, to get a post approved,  400+ words are required. For these reasons, my activity at this site is not very frequent.


By contrast, my efforts at Literacy Base and myLot are much more rewarding, and as such, I login to my account almost every day.  There is always something to be done, in addition to blogging, at either of these sites that can generate some extra income.  


In fact, myLot doesn't even require blogging.  But if you wanted, you could describe your activity as micro-blogging.  Starting a discussion there is very similar to composing a short Tweet.  (A short Tweet?  That's a redundant expression, isn't it?  I apologize.  :) )


To get a post approved at Literacy Base, 300+ words are required. For some reason, it seems easier to write 300 words than 400.  (It's psychological.  I'm a fruitcake!  )  But you can easily earn from contributing to forums and groups, updating you wall (or timeline) with a quote or some random comment, leaving comments at blog posts published by others, etc.


  • NOTE:  To be fair, you also don't need to blog at BlogBourne.  You can be active in the same way as on Literacy Base.

With Literacy Base (cash out at $10) and myLot (cash out at $5) - look up at the right hand corner of your screen and you can immediately see your earnings.  With BlogBourne (cash out at $10) you have to calculate what you've earned by multiplying your accumulated coins by the exchange rate.  (Not sure what the exchange rate is.  It's probably best if you ask the BB site owner directly or click here to read a post by a blogger who is a member at both sites.)


Two final remarks:  

(1)  All communities have really nice members, including the Admin folks.

(2)  If you are a newbie blogger, these sites are a great place to get started.  If I could go backwards, I would have started my blogging attempts at sites like these.  Eh!  Live and learn!  My pain is your gain.
